I strike a match to an old love letter
Another weak attempt at lettin' go
I try to put myself together
I know I'm not even close
The time will come
When I turn your memory loose
But I can't think about that now
No not now

Well I'll burn that bridge when I get there
When the fire for you has burned out
Well I'll walk across and cut my loss
The day that I no longer care
Well I'll burn that bridge when I get there

When you walked out you took off runnin'
Your heart found another home
Now you look at me like we had nothin'
I wish that I could be that cold
When I don't shake at the mention of your name
That's when I'll finally write you off
I'll write you off

Well I'll burn that bridge when I get there
When the fire for you has burned out
Well I'll walk across and cut my loss
The day that I no longer care
Well I'll burn that bridge when I get there

Well I'll walk across and cut my loss
I'll burn that bridge when I get there
Yes I'll burn that bridge when I get there
