Mike Curb Congregation – Burning Bridges lyrics

(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

    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.

    I was very young when I saw the movie, but loved the tune so much that I felt It lent a lot to the good vibes you get from watching a good movie. I always just looked at it at face value. That we ignore people, and opportunities when we younger and busy chasing our own whims. We look back later with feeling of regret at losing friends, Family and windows of opportunity. I think most folks have these regretful feeling later in life.
