Here’s a live recording of Dad and I singing and playing ‘Building Bridges’. It’s not perfect – but it’s good enough to learn from and sing along with! Happy singing. The above photo is from 2011 when Kalim (my brother) and I visited Chengdu, China for two months and went to see the pandas!
Here are the lyrics also:
BUILDING BRIDGES OUT OF THE WALLS
1. When the wall says stay away you’re from a different race
Gonna tell them there’s just one race it’s the human race.
So turn that wall into a bridge
Take your brothers by the hand
And walk across that bridge to the world God promised man.
We’re building bridges out of the walls,
Building bridges out of the walls,
Building / clap /bridges out of the walls that keep us apart.
2. When the wall says stay away you’re from a different land
Gonna tell them the earth’s one country we’re world citizens.
3. When the wall says stay away our cultures do not agree
Gonna tell them we are all the fruits of just one tree..
4. When the wall says stay away our religions are not the same
Gonna tell them we just worship God by different names.
