„That's when you can build a bridge of light.
That's what turns the wrong so 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 when you gotta be strong tonight.
Only love can build us a bridge of light.“
Bridge of Light, written by Pink and Billy Mann, from the soundtrack to Happy Feet Two (2011)
