Yesterday she thanked me
For oiling that front door
This morning when she wakes
She won't be thankful anymore

She'll never know how much I cared
Just that I couldn't stay
Shell never know the reason why
I always run away

[Chorus:]

Burning bridges
One by one
What I'm doing 
Can't be undone

And I'm always hoping someday
I'm gonna stop this running round
But every time the chance comes up
Another bridge goes down

Last night we talked of old times
Families  and home towns
She wondered if we both agree on
Where we'd settle down

And I told her that we'd cross that bridge
Whenever it'd arrive
Now through the flames I see her standing
On the other side

Burning bridges
One by one
What I'm doing 
Can't be undone

And I'm always hoping someday
I'm gonna stop this running round
But every time the chance comes up
Another bridge goes down

Like ashes on the water
I drift away in sorrow
Knowing that the day my lessons finally learned
I'll be standing at a river
Staring out across tomorrow 
And the bridge I need to get there
Will be a bridge that I have burned

Burning bridges
One by one
What I'm doing 
Can't be undone

And I'm always hoping someday
I'm gonna stop this running round
But every time the chance comes up
Another bridge goes down

Another bridge goes down
