Father to son, husband to wife
Brother to brother, black man to white
Living together, falling apart
Looking for the common ground in every human heart
It all comes down to the two of us
Yeah this is where we start

We are building the bridge
One small stone at a time
With a lot of love
And some help from above
From your heart to mine

There's a land of justice, cities filled with pride
A mountain of hope, just on the other side
Across a river of indifference, and a valley of despair
There's a tower of courage, piercing through the air
I have a dream for our children, I want to take them there

And we are building the bridge
One small stone at a time
With a lot of love
And some help from above
From your heart to mine

As we seek out understanding
As we learn to forgive
When we open up our minds
When our words are true and kind
We are building the bridge
