about

"We were walking across a bridge when we came upon a group of young people, probably not much older than us, who were obviously grieving. There were flowers and beer cans hanging from the bridge, and we found out their friend had jumped off the bridge during a party and didn't make it.
This stayed with us all day. As a young person, how do you deal with losing someone who was so young and had their whole life ahead of them? That evening we wrote this song."

lyrics

The Bridge
I walked the way that you used to go
And I see your face in the cumulus clouds in the water down below
And I wonder why you ever came here
And you jumped so far that you'd always be falling until you disappear

And oh, oh, oh what is there to say?
And all we have left is the wind
The silence now seems to swallow me whole
And our laughter it turned to howling when gravity took you in his hold
Now Christmas Day is bitter
carols silenced mid refrain
And I hear the sound of you hitting the water in their place

And oh, oh, oh what is there to say
And all we have left is the wind
You once told me you wondered what it would be like to fly
You once told me you wondered what it would be like to die
Taken to the air
You began your endless flight
