lyrics

Why do we keep here all night…under the eyes of the porch lights?
When there ain’t no-one inside…and your nose on my cheek…

We don’t give in, but give way…oh, in this duel of red capes
I watch your finger…there it waits…in the buttonhole of my coat…

So are we right? Is this wrong? Are we the weak or the strong?
I don’t know.
I can’t say.
But from the ruins of other stars…here we are darlin’
So ready to burn again
And…so you know….baby, I’m game

I’ve been a’thinkin us through
Been building temples and tombs
All before the first stone’s been moved…
But ain’t that always the way?

See, I’ve been a’waitin’, and I’ve been wined
I’ve been collectin’ goodbyes
I’ve been searching for some light…in the buttonholes of new clothes

So are we right? Is this wrong? Are we the weak or the strong?
I don’t know.
I can’t say.
But from the ruins of other stars…here we are darlin’
So ready to burn again
And…so you know….if you can try…
baby, I’m game

It’s a fine night for floatin’ between the finite and all that could be
And with our music the multiverse teems
And things unsaid, still are read, as we’ve dreamed…

From The Bridge is a Ontario based musical act which blends a deeply melodic guitar sound with a rare brand of lyrical introspection.
From The Bridge gets into you, permeates your senses. Each track, though separate, is seemingly linked together offering little interruption to the state to which you have been led. You find yourself aware, but drifting off to a place of similar contemplation.
