(Kelly's Heroes)

Friends all tried to warn me but I held my head up high
All the time to warn me but I only passed them by
They all tried to tell me but I guess I didn't care
I turned my back and left them standing there

All the burning bridges that are falling after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Joey tried to help me find a job a while ago
When I finally got it I didn't want to go
The party Mary gave for me when I just walked away
Now there's nothing left for me to say

All the burning bridges that are falling after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Years have passed and I keep thinking, what a fool I've been
I look back into the past and think of way back then
I know that I lost everything I thought that I could win
I guess I should have listened to my friends

All the burning bridges that are falling after me
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everyone I left behind each time I closed the door
Burning bridges lost forevermore

Burning bridges lost forevermore

    It's about moving on. Sometimes in order to get somewhere, or even to get to the next bridge, one has to burn the bridge one has crossed. I'm using this song in a book i'm writing called the teacher in me by tracey maguire. My first book the worker in me hits the market in dec 12. Look out for it.

    This song is specific about the "burning bridges" - decisions involving leaving friends and feeling lonely. I think we all "burn bridges" in our lives, but not necessarily the ones mentioned in the song. In kelly's heroes, the bridges burnt are both real bridges and career bridges. However, in contrast to the song, they did not "leave their friends standing there" - so the song is more of a contrast than a description of what happened.

    Regreat after joining up for war, having to do things and see things no human should have to. Then trying to live with yourself after. And not being able to.

    I think that this song reflects on every man and woman's life decisions that everyone is put through. Don't take the wrong path, because you might end up in under a "burning bridge".
