How can I build a bridge to you It’s not impossible to do Start by finding common ground Something solid, something sound I will listen to your heart If you vow to do your part To hear my story too, that’s all I’m asking you Nothing there to prove Building Natural Bridges Natural Bridges How did we get so far apart Or was it like that from the very start Living different roads Hearing different versions of a story told That burning anger in your eyes Is hardly fuel for compromise But I am not your enemy I’d Truly love for you to see How different we could be Building Natural Bridges Natural Bridges Without anger, without fear of Losing what we hold so dear A little patch of common ground Something solid, something sound Natural Bridges Natural Bridges

100 miles from Memphis Swear I hear the sound Of funky laid back pickin’ Yeah, that’s what’s going down Gets my heart a thumpin’ And my head spinnin’ around 100 miles from Memphis Tennessee bound Cats are playing simple Cats are playing cool Sisters singing sweetly Making up the rules They’re born with it They live with it They die with it Makin’ love with that Memphis Southern Groove Maybe it’ the Delta water Come up from the ground Maybe it’s the pulpit preaching “Lost, ye shall be found” All the ghosts on Beale Street Ardent, Royal, Sun, Stax, American too I’m hundred miles from Memphis To hear what’s goin’ down Feel what’s going down At Southern Grooves They’re born with it They live with it They die with it They’re makin’ love with that Memphis Southern Groove (repeat) 100 miles from Memphis Southern Groove

Been searching all around To see what’s goin’ down It’s nothing like it ever used to be Cats were making sounds In every bar in town Lookin’ like it’s down to you and me Brother, you’re the last best one around Ain’t nobody feels it like you do Always drummin’ from a deeper ground You’re lookin’ like the last best one in town Passion is the fuel For making our own rules Pedal to the metal every day Flames forever burnin’ Wheels forever turnin’ Grind you down to nothin’ along the way But brother, you’re the last best one around Ain’t nobody feels it like you do You’ve been driving down some shaky ground Still lookin’ like the last best one in town Life won’t let up, It’s a setup To deny our hearts Knock down, gettin’ up Rebound, messin’ up All we ever wanted was to play our part Brother, we’re the last best ones in town No one ‘round here plays ‘em like we do Gimme 4, then we’ll lay one down Brother we’re the last best ones around…town

Goodbye to the 60’s Tomorrow’s gonna be a brighter day So long to my 60’s You’re in my rearview mirror all the way Bid you a fond fare thee well It’s mutual, I can tell Time to slam that book on you and mee Goodbye 60’s No more rush hour freeway jam Maybe some gal can be the man No more tryin’ to make it pay It made no difference anyway Tomorrow I won’t miss you Though you’ve been good to me So I’m blowin’ you a kiss And let’s let each other be I’ve been through two rounds of 60’s The first one shaped the man I try to be I’ve learned that freedom isn’t free And you gotta give back what you’ve earned As for MY 60’s It’s the fourth quarter, there are no guarantees None of us gets out of here alive And too many of my friends are gone way too soon And so it’s time… Goodbye to the 60’s Tomorrow’s gonna be a brighter day So long to my 60’s You’re in my rear view mirror all the way Bid you a fond fare thee well It’s mutual, I can tell Time to slam the book on you and mee Goodbye 60’s And I’m looking forward to tomorrow

How can I build a bridge to you
It's not impossible to do
Start by finding common ground
Something Solid, something sound

While visiting Natural Bridge National Monument in Utah, I thought hmm… what other kinds of natural bridges are there? Can us humans build bridges to one another despite opposite beliefs? Can blue begin to understand where red is coming from? Can red begin to understand blue? I want to believe that this is possible. Let's start by finding common ground. Something solid. Something sound.
