How love can conquer
The most reluctant souls
I'll take my chances
If you give back what you stole

Let me give you a spade
To dig your merry hole
I dig your smile too
And you dug my poker face

I couldn't get in so
Threw stones at your window
Love like an arrow
The arrow has left its bow

Traveling overseas
I'm missing my sweet pea
Airports and handkerchiefs and broken families

On the bridge to Canada
I wish you'd fall but not drown
On the bridge to Canada
Yes I would wear you like a crown

I threw the dice on you
Went very far away
Some people they don't hurt
Just in it for the chase
Zero, seven, nine, five, six, zero, one, two, three, four
Deleted numbers, but remembered to the core

Maybe disappointments
Must be our appointment
Naive and hyper
Now I can't decipher

Before you close the curtains
Be sure that you're certain
When losing your patience
For flirtation and free loving

"You lost your passport!
You lost your head!
You lost your passport!!
Have you lost your head?!"
You're waking up in a foreign bed

On the bridge to Canada
I wish you'd fall but not drown
On the bridge to Canada
Yes I would wear you like a crown

On the bridge to Canada
I wish that you could see me now
On the bridge to Canada
I'll play the fool but not your clown

On the bridge to Canada
"I hear the band have just left town"
On the bridge to Canada
How I miss you now

On the bridge to Canada
You can wear me like a frown
On the bridge to Canada (oh how I will)
Play the fool in this lucky town

On the bridge to Canada
I hope that you are happy now
On the bridge to Canada
I'll play the fool but not your clown
