E.G. Phillips has written “A Bridge Too Far,” a bossa nova with lyrics with a Tom Waits or Leonard Cohen state of mind. The song features Grace Renaud on vocals. Before we go down a bossa nova/confessional songwriter rabbit hole, we would like to tell you that “A Bridge Too Far” is the track of the day.
“The East Bay train station in which this song is set is one where I’ve been stuck many times — at night when you are alone in the dark, it can be a time for quiet reflection, or in this case a tumultuous inner dialogue, one rooted in conflict, as implied by the allusions to the WWII movie of the same name,” explains E.G. Phillips.

Is the one I can’t rely on at all
Well, as you know, I always thought we tried
To go A Bridge Too Far
