Original video
Friends all tried to warn me, but I held my head up high
All the time they warned 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 have fallen 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 have fallen 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 I that could win
I guess I should have listened to my friends

All the burning bridges that have fallen 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
