    Lyrics

    The river's too wide now for crossin'
    The water rushed too loud for talkin'
    We never built bridges for walkin'
    Now the river's too wide

    A gentle stream once flowed between us
    But love could cross it easily
    Till stormy skies brought bitter teardrops
    And made that stream a ragin' river
    Come between you and me

    The river's too wide now for crossin'
    The water rushed too loud for talkin'
    We never built bridges for walkin'
    There's no getting' to the other side

    The river's too wide for crossin'
    The hurtin' goes too deep for mendin'
    It looks like an unhappy endin'
    'Cos the river's too wide

    Good lessons learned are not forgotten
    We gave up love to save our pride
    Next time I'm faced with risin' water
    I'll build a bridge of love and kindness
    Reachin' to the other side

    And the river's too wide now for crossin'
    The water rushed too loud for talkin'
    We never built bridges for walkin'
    There's no getting' to the other side

    The river's too wide for crossin'
    The hurtin' goes too deep for mendin'
    It looks like an unhappy endin'
    'Cos the river's too wide
