Why so unforgiving and why so cold?
Been a long time crossing bridge of sighs

from Robin Trower – Bridge of Sighs Lyrics on Rap Genius


The “Bridge of Sighs” is the eminent Ponte de Sospiri bridge in Venice. The nickname “Bridge of Sighs” was by Lord Byron in the 19th century, when he publicized the impression that the bridge’s name was inspired by the sighs of condemned prisoners as they were led through it to the executioner.
