Written by Keith Stegall and Charlie Craig

Matches, I need some matches
'Cause I've still got one old bridge I need to burn
Teacher, I need a teacher
There's a lesson my hard-headed heart can't seem to learn

Well I told myself I'm the last one left
To never let myself get hurt again
Like the fallen bird, I fell for her
And now I'm right back where I started then, so friend
Could I bum some matches, oh I need some matches
'Cause I've still got one old bridge I need to burn

Well you think by now I would have found
At least one woman who was meant for me
But it's been my luck just to fall in love and wake up to another memory
And another need
For some matches, I need some matches
'Cause I've still got one old bridge I need to burn
Let it burn
