​Burning Bridges

This song is by Lucinda Williams and appears on the album Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone (2014).

Sometimes the best intentions are never truly met
And all your expectations are never what you get
You'll never say why or come up with a reason
You've been weakened by a strain of bad decisions

Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down

Now you've won and you've lost and you won't put up a fight
And I can add you to my list of things that keep me up at night
You're the saddest story that's ever been told
And I stand back and watch as the tragedy unfolds

Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down

If there ever was a time, it's now, it might not come again
You have to choose which eyes to look through in the end
The loveliest flowers will die in a drought
And your loneliest hours will be worse than you ever thought

Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down

Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down
Burning bridges, burning 'em down

Why you wanna, why you wanna burn bridges
Why you wanna, why you wanna burn this bridge
Why you wanna burn this bridge
Why you wanna burn it down
