I can feel a strong desire,
A distant fire burning through the past
Deep inside my heart is yearning,
A bridge is burning
There's just no turning back
After all the hell I've tasted,
Years I've wasted,
Love that slipped away
Suddenly a vision shook me,
I see the fool I'd become content to play
Over one-way streets in blindin' heat
I carry this torch alone
I ask for no directions home

*you can call out my name but I won't return
I'm a fugitive of love and this heart's been burned
Burnin' bridges behind me
You can follow me down but it's plain to see
I'm a victim of the burn and it's third degree
Setting bridges on fire*

I will go to any length
To find the strength
To face the night alone
Standing on the edge of time,
I cross the line
My heart becomes my own
Gonna tell you why you're a fool
To try to cross a burning bridge
It's a long hard fall from the top of the ridge

( * repeat)
