Take it to the bridge
Where hearts may melt
Locked on together
Bound in metal smelt

Engraved for an eternity
Withstanding all weather
Bound two, three, or four as one
Always to be together

Take it to the bridge
When things don’t work out
When hearts become hurt
Malice screams and shouts

Hug, and kiss, and make it better
For better or for worse
We will always be together
Til our final verse

Take it to the bridge
When one of us is gone
Tears drop water to water
We’ll reunite, won’t be long

Water crashing unfurling
Travelling the Earth
A moving love never ceases
In either our death or in our birth.
Inspired by a little bridge full of love note padlocks. They are places where love is shared, sealed, and places where people go to remember, to cherish, to think about things.

They are lovely.

.. reference to the middle of a song, but the phrase originally?:

"It is not musical in origin, to "Take it to the Bridge" was to take an issue or complaint to the Ships Captain.”
