I crossed the bridge in early evening
below the city lights
the air was cold, spring’s holding off
so long beneath the ice
and all the breathless youth in slap and fur
all sense of purpose a little blurred
I said I’d never let things slide that far

I crossed the bridge in trepidation
I guess I looked no good
where would I fall should conscience fail
and who would catch me if I should
as the finest minds you'll ever know
twirl and tumble down ancient roads
I said I’d never let things slide that far
Oh but I would

I take a drink just now and then
And just to get me through
You put these thoughts into my mind
You don't know what you do
and if I fell, should conscience fail
well I might as well fall flat on my face
And there are bridges one should never cross, it's true
Oh but I would
Oh but I would
Oh but I would
