Love Can Build A Bridge

The Judds

I'd gladly walk across the desert
With no shoes upon my feet
To share with you the last bite
Of bread I had to eat.

I would swim out to save you
In your sea of broken dreams,
When all your hopes are sinking
Let me show you what love means:

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don't you think it's time...
Don't you think it's time?

I would whisper "love" so loudly
Every heart could understand,
That love and only love
Can join the tribes of man.

I would give my heart's desire
So that you might see:
The first step is to realize
That it all begins with you and me.


When we stand together
It's our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
Keep believin' in the power.


Love and only love,
Love and only love...

Love Can Build A Bridge (1990).
