Bridge over troubled water


Stimmband Nr. 3

Why she had do go I don’t know, she woudn’t say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday.

  1. Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away,
    now it looks as though they’re here to stay.
    Oh I believe in yesterday.
  2. Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be,
    there’s a shadow hanging over me.
    Oh yesterday came suddenly.
    Chorus: Why she had …
  3. Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
    now I need a place to hide away,

Bridge over troubled water

Stimmband Nr. 4

||: Like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down.

  1. When your’re weary, feeling small.
    When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all.
    I’m on your side, oh, when times get rough.
    And friends just can’t be found. Like a bridge …
  2. When you’re down and out, when you’re on the streets,
    when evening falls so hard, I will comfort you.
    I’ll take your part, oh, when darkness comes,
    and pain is all around. Like a bridge …
  3. Sail on silver girl, sail on by.
    Your time has come to shine, all your dreams are on their way.
    See how they shin, oh, and if you need a friend,
    I’m sailing right behind. Like a bridge … I will ease your mind.
M.+T.: Paul Simon (*1941), 1970
