Burning Bridges

Tethered to the ocean floor
Waiting to drown
Couldn't tread the water anymore
And that's when I found
A bridge leading up and over
To your solid ground

I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not looking over my shoulder

I'm burning bridges, I'm burning bridges
I'm not going back to where I've been
No need to cross that bridge again
I'm burning bridges, I'm burning bridges
I'm not going back to where I've been

Scattered out across the sea
So far and wide
Tempting all that's haunted me
To decide
Cast it out and set me free
Cutting the line

I'm not looking over my shoulder
I'm not looking over my shoulder

I'm burning bridges, I'm burning bridges
I'm not going back to where I've been
No need to cross that bridge again
I'm burning bridges, I'm burning bridges
I'm not going back to where I've been


Shifting sands, waves collide
I feel my feet being pulled by the tide
There you stand at my side
I'm clinging to the rock of time
I'm clinging to the rock of time

I'm burning bridges, I'm burning bridges
I'm not going back to where I've been
No need to cross that bridge again
I'm burning bridges, I'm burning bridges
I'm not going back to where I've been
