I've seen the bridge and the bridge is long
And they built it high and they built it strong
Strong enough to hold the weight of time
Long enough to leave some of us behind

And every one of us has to face that day
Do you cross the bridge or do you fade away?
And every one of us that ever came to play
Has to cross the bridge or fade away

Standing on the bridge, looking at the waves
Seen so many jump, never seen one saved
On a distant beach, your song can die
On a bitter wind, on a cruel tide

And every one of us has to face that day
Do you cross the bridge or do you fade away?
And every one of us that ever came to play
Has to cross the bridge or fade away

And the bridge, it shines
Oh, cold, hard iron
Saying, Come and risk it all
Or die trying

And every one of us has to face that day
Do you cross the bridge or do you fade away?
And every one of us that ever came to play
Has to cross the bridge or fade away
Has to cross the bridge or fade away

JOHN, ELTON / TAUPIN, BERNIE
