burning bridges lyrics – survivor

i can feel a strong desire,
a distant fire burning through the past
deep inside my heart is yearning,
a bridge is burning
there’s just no turning back
after all the h*ll i’ve tasted,
years i’ve wasted,
love that slipped away
suddenly a vision shook me,
i see the fool i’d become content to play
over one-way streets in blindin’ heat
i carry this torch alone
i ask for no directions home

you can call out my name but i won’t return
i’m a fugitive of love and this heart’s been burned
burnin’ bridges behind me
you can follow me down but it’s plain to see
i’m a victim of the burn and it’s third degree
setting bridges on fire

i will go to any length
to find the strength
to face the night alone
standing on the edge of time,
i cross the line
my heart becomes my own
gonna tell you why you’re a fool
to try to cross a burning bridge
it’s a long hard fall from the top of the ridge

you can call out my name but i won’t return
i’m a fugitive of love and this heart’s been burned
burnin’ bridges behind me
you can follow me down but it’s plain to see
i’m a victim of the burn and it’s third degree
setting bridges on fire
