I’m stranded on this island with no way out
I don’t know how I got here and I don’t know what to do about it
One things for certain

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to carry me through the storm
I need you to lift me up
And keep me safe from harm
I need you to be my bridge

The waves crash around me the ground is booby-trapped
Every step I take could be my last
I’m scared and I’m frightened
I don’t know what to do
I barely have the strength to reach out for you

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to keep me from falling
I need you to guide me along
This darkened highway

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to carry me through the storm
I need you to lift me up
And keep me safe from harm
I need you to be my bridge

I want you to break down the glass
That separates the present from the past
I need you to tell me that I’ll be OK
I need you to stay

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to be steady and strong
I need you to walk me through the minefield
I need you to bring me home

Give me the strength to regain my faith
I need you to test each step before I take it
Every choice before I make it
I need you to lead me back to myself
I need your help

Cause I, I, I…

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to carry me through the storm
I need you to lift me up
And keep me safe from harm
I need you to be my bridge

I need you to keep me from falling
I need you to guide me along
This darkened highway

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to be steady and strong
I need you to walk me through the minefield
I need you to bring me home

I need you to be my bridge
I need you to carry me through the storm
I need you to lift me up
And keep me safe from harm
I need you to be my bridge

I need you to carry me through the storm
I need you to lift me up
And keep me safe from harm
I need you to be my bridge


I need you to be my bridge
I need you to be my bridge
I need you to be my bridge
I need you to be my bridge
I need you to be my bridge

I’m stranded on this island with no way out
I don’t know how I got here and I don’t know what to do about it
