George Strait – By The Light Of A Burning Bridge lyrics

Oh, I've been stumblin' through the darkness
Tryin' to feel the ground beneath my feet
Afraid of movin' much in any direction
Stuck where the past and the future meet, but...

I finally got my first good look, a little fire was all it took
And as the flames grew brighter I saw everything that I'd missed
Once you get your courage up, you light a match and your eyes adjust
It's amazing what a man can see by the light of a burning bridge

There were things I saw that I'm not proud of
Things that I'd do different now from then
But when I really make myself get honest
It's over, and I can't go back again, 'cause...

Repeat Chorus

It sure is hard to let go and to leave the past behind
But there ain't no other way
That you can find some peace of mind, when...

Repeat Chorus

It's amazing what a man can see by the light of a burning bridge
