Mavis Staples – Build A Bridge Lyrics

SHARE

I’m tired of us living so lonely
I think I know what to do
Gonna build a bridge right over the mountain
I will walk right over to you

Look around at our city
Look at us out on the street
Got kids looking over their shoulder
People looking down at their feet

I’m tired of us living so lonely
I hope I know what to do
Gonna build a bridge right over the ocean
I’m coming right over for you

When I say my life matters
You can say yours does too
But I bet you never have to remind anyone
To look at it from your point of view

Gotta build a bridge right over the mountain
Gotta build it right over the sea
Gonna build a bridge right over the ocean
So you can walk right over to me

Look around at our country
At the people that we don’t ever see
Standing side by side us divided
Lonely in the land of the free

I’m pull the shades off from my window
I’m gonna let the sunlight in
I’m gonna open my heart to a strange
I think I know where to begin

I’m gonna build a bridge right over the mountain
I think I know what to do
Gonna build a bridge right over the ocean
I’m gonna walk right over to you
I’m gonna walk right over to you
I’m gonna walk right over to you
I’m gonna walk right over to you
I’m gonna walk right over to you
