Pink - Bridge Of Light Lyrics

Looking for the lyrics to “Bridge Of Light” from the soundtrack of the movie “Happy Feet 2” by Alecia Moore A. K. A. Pink, the popular rock singer?  It’s here, along with a video from YouTube!

(If you’re here to see a video with the song, or you are looking for the only 100% correct version of the lyrics to Bridge Of Light, and aren’t really interested in my comments about this, you can click on one of the links below to be taken directly to that section of this page).

Video: Bridge Of Light – Pink

Recently, we took my 15-year old daughter to see Happy Feet 2.  Being the old “softy” that I am, I like spending time with my family in this way, whether I enjoy the animated film or not.  However, most of the time, with very few exceptions, I find myself enjoying the film anyway!  (Yes, I admit it!)

Music being one of my passions, from time to time, truly powerful songs come along that really hit me at the very core of my being.  Some songs by Celine Dion comes to mind (“Power Of Love”).  Whitney Houston’s version of “I Will Always Love You” is also another good one. R Kelly also did a great one for the movie “Hardball” called “The Storm Is Over Now”.  I love songs like this!

To my utter surprise, this movie – a cartoon of all things – had such a song in it called Bridge Of Light.  Yep… me… Rick Upshaw, a 43-year old man, literally had goose bumps while listening to this song because of how powerful it was, especially with the imagery in the movie during the song of a mother reaching out to her husband and child, cut off from them and unable to reach them. (I’m such a sap, huh?  LOL)  I knew as soon as I heard it that I wanted to learn it, and at my first opportunity to perform it…. somewhere….. anywhere.  I’ve been burning up the YouTube views for that song ever since.  I’m listening to it now as I write this!  LOL

Pink Bridge Of Light Lyrics   by Pink (From Happy Feet 2)

Alecia Moore A. K. A. "Pink"

When I got home and looked up the song on the internet, I was shocked yet again to find that it was actually Pink (whose real name is Alecia Moore) who performed the song, and voiced the part of the mother!  Now, being a country boy at heart, there aren’t a lot of her songs that I can really get into, but there are a few of her popular songs that I do like.  However, with her trademark pink hair gelled to the max and the hard songs she performs, my impression of her personna prior to this point was that of a tattooed dope-smokin’ party-girl rivaling Britney Spears from a couple of years ago and perhaps even Lady Gaga.  So to find that she was behind this song – let alone voicing the entire part of the mother – truly floored me.  Even moreso, when I saw an interview with her on YouTube (see the following two videos) discussing her task in writing the song, I have to say that I was really beside myself!

About These Lyrics To Bridge Of Light

I looked at several pages online that had what was supposed to be the lyrics to this song.  Apparently, no one else paid very close attention to the words while listening to the song, because they were ALL wrong!  So I went back through the lyrics, making sure that the lyrics match up exactly with what’s actually in the song.  So, to my knowledge, this is the only 100% correct version of the lyrics to Bridge Of Light.  Enjoy!

Bridge Of Light Lyrics

Verse 1:

Bridge Of Light Lyrics Pink 01 300x200 Bridge Of Light Lyrics   by Pink (From Happy Feet 2)Just when you think
Hope is lost,
And giving up
Is all you got,
Blue turns black.
Your confidence is cracked.
There seems no turning back from here.

Sometimes there isn’t an obvious explanation
While the holiest stars can feel the strongest palpitations.

Chorus 1:

bridge of light 02 300x202 Bridge Of Light Lyrics   by Pink (From Happy Feet 2)That’s when you can build a bridge of light,
That’s what turns the wrongs all right.
That’s when you can’t give up the fight.

That’s when love turns nighttime into day.
That’s when loneliness goes away.
That’s why you gotta be strong tonight.
Only love can build us a bridge of light.

Verse 2:

When your feet are made of stone
And you’re convinced that you’re all alone,
Look at the stars, instead of the dark.
You’ll find your heart shines like the sun.

Let’s not let our anger get us lost.
And the need to be right comes with way too high a cost.

Chorus 2:

Pink Bridge Of Light 300x300 Bridge Of Light Lyrics   by Pink (From Happy Feet 2)That’s when love can build a bridge of light
That’s what turns the wrongs all right
That’s when you know it’s worth the fight

That’s when love turns nighttime into day
That’s when loneliness goes away,
That’s why you gotta be strong tonight
’cause only love can build us a bridge of light.

Bridge:

Deep breath, take it on the chin,
But don’t forget to let the love back in!

Chorus 3:

That’s when love can build a bridge of light.
That’s what turns the wrong so right.
That’s when you can’t give up the fight.

Pink Bridge Of Light Lyrics 300x225 Bridge Of Light Lyrics   by Pink (From Happy Feet 2)That’s when love turns nighttime into day.
That’s when loneliness goes away.
That’s why you gotta be strong tonight,
’cause only love can build us a bridge of light.

Only love can build us a bridge of light.
