A Bridge That Just Won't Burn

by Brett Matthew West

A Bridge That Just Won't Burn

You promise that you're leaving by the dawn's early light
So, tell me why you're lying in his arms again tonight
I never meant a thing to you, I'm a page you can not turn
Well, tonight I'm crossing over a bridge that just won't burn

I forgot more about you the day you went away
Than any foolish man will know about you today
For so long you were the one to make my world go around
Now look at all these broken hearts in pieces on the ground

Tonight I'm crossing over a bridge that just won't burn
I'm looking back in anger at a page I can not turn
No matter what you do to me I can't get you off my mind
Is there any reason to think I will this time

Now I lay me down to sleep and have sweet dreams of you
This is still the hardest thing I'll ever have to do
Like notches on his handle you're a love casualty
Don't think that you're the only one he's made a memory

You don't know about a heartache till its chiseled out in stone
There's nothing that I know of worse than being alone
And, crying time for me begins when you walk out the door
I can hear you softly saying you won't be back no more

Tonight I'm crossing over a bridge that just won't burn
I'm looking back in anger at a page I can not turn
No matter what you do to me I can't get you off my mind
Is there any reason to think I will this time

Standing in the shadows of our lost love affair
Without the love you gave to me our love can not be there
And, every time I go away you're all I want to do
This bridge that I am burning leads me back to you

Tonight I'm crossing over a bridge that just won't burn
I'm looking back in anger at a page I can not turn
No matter what you do to me I can't get you off my mind
Is there any reason to think I will this time
