lyrics

There’s a river that runs through the valley
to the sound of slow-moving trains.
Connecting the shorelines are several bridges
built long before I became.

Braving the weather, the first of the settlers,
watched as their dream took on life.
Their vision was carried through many a century
by the sweat of who kept it alive.

’Cause I live in a city of bridges.
I live in a city of dreams.
Built on a hope for the ages
here in the land of the free.

Now most of those bridges, with concrete for columns,
carry traffic from shore to shore.
And now more than ever they stand as a symbol
where a hope and a dream were once born.

’Cause I live in a city of bridges
I live in a city of dreams.
Built on a hope for the ages
here in the land of the free.

On every corner, a lifetime of stories.
Every street sings a song
of the dust and the rubble, a great many struggle
shaping the place I call home.

’Cause I live in a city of bridges
I live in a city of dreams.
Built on a hope for the ages
here in the land of the free.
Yes, here in the land of the free.
