"Bridges" is a song by Fifth Harmony included in their third studio album, Fifth Harmony, which debuted on August 25, 2017.

BackgroundEdit

“Bridges” is the first song in which Fifth Harmony discusses politics. During a Facebook live, the girls described the song as a message of hope as well as a product of their “passion about what was going on in the world”.

Lauren: Lots of people want to keep (politics) out of their art because they assume the role of, I’m the distraction, I’m the escapism, I’m the thing that people use to check out of the world,’ so a lot of people don’t want to get involved, not because they’re scared, but because they don’t want to have those conflicts.[1]
Ally: One of our proudest moments is “Bridges” because it has such a beautiful uniting message. It’s what the world needs right now. There are so many beautiful harmonies and the melodies are really sweet. You really hear our voices strike through this song.[2]

LyricsEdit

Ally:
Can't spend time in rewind I'm sorry
Many times I remind myself
We've come way too far in our stories
To build these walls and to blind ourselves

Dinah:
And for every action, there's a reaction
And I know the world can be cold
We can't let it divide us
There's something inside us, a power that grows
There's something beautiful in the flaws in all we are
Something calling all of us, and it says

Normani:
We build bridges
Oh, we build bridges

Dinah:
No, we won't separate
We know love can conquer hate

Normani:
So we build bridges

Dinah:
Bridges, not walls
Bridges, not walls
Bridges, not walls

Lauren:
I believe in the beauty of love (Normani: Hey)
I believe that we really are one
I believe every woman is a fighter
And I believe every man can stand beside her

And I know the world can be cold
Can't let it divide us
There's something inside us, a power that grows
There's something beautiful in the flaws we all are
Something calling all of us, and it says

Normani:
We build bridges
Oh, we build bridges

Dinah:
No, we won't separate
We know love can conquer hate

Normani:
So we build bridges (Oh)

Dinah:
Bridges, not walls
Bridges, not walls
Bridges, not walls

All I pray is we break our chains
Because love's worth fighting for
Shed your light oh, oh, oh, oh

Ally:
All I pray is we break our chains
Because love's worth fighting for
Shed your light oh, oh, oh, oh

Fifth Harmony:
All I pray is we (Normani: Yeah yeah) break our chains
Because love's worth fighting for
Shed your light oh, oh, oh, oh

All I (with Lauren: pray is we) break our chains
Because love's worth fighting for
Shed your light oh, oh, oh, oh

Normani:
So we build bridges
So we build bridges

Dinah:
So we build bridges
So we build bridges

Normani:
We build bridges
Oh, we build bridges

Dinah:
No, we won't separate
We know love can conquer hate

Normani:
So we build bridges

Dinah:
Bridges, not walls
