Lyrics to “Bridges” by Charlotte O’Connor

Here are the lyrics to a song of the singer-songwriter Charlotte O’Connor. I covered this song on youtube.

Lyrics

You should swim in the rivers I’ve cried and then you’d know
That the words that she spoke with your mouth, they left me cold
She’s a simple subtraction that you could do without
But I’m standing right on the edge and the waves are gonna take me down

So I’ll build a bridge over you
And I’ll let this love sail through
And I’ll watch you driftin’ away
You’ll miss me one day
You’ll miss me one da – ay we’ll build bridges every day
We’ll build bridges and it’ll be ok

Do you hear all these words that I sing
They’re all for you
But I’m sick of drownin’ my eyes out
I need to tell you the truth
Cause I’m a drunken phone call that you can do without
But I’m standing right on the edge and the waves are gonna take me down

So I’ll build a bridge over you
And I’ll let this love sail through
And when you feel like walking away
You’ll miss me one day
You’ll miss me one da – ay we’ll build bridges every day
We’ll build bridges and it’ll be ok

So I’ll build the bridge over you
And I’ll let my love sail through
And when I watch you walking away
I know you’ll miss me one day

you’ll miss me one day

Chords coming soon…

I also would like to thank my friend and English native speaker Helen for improving my first attempts.
