This is a project I did for a songwriting class. I'm pretty happy with it.


I’ll never forget the skyline
Like the light on the morning dew
A river runs between us
Separating me and you
Spanning the gap two old steel arches
Shadowed by the day
Once these arches held me up
Now they keep the past at bay

The bridge that I burned
Is a lesson that I learned
We all have our own regrets
This one broke my heart
That bridge was where we fell apart

I’m waiting for that moment when
You finally understand
Love is not a lonely effort
Takes more than just a man
The path we took to this bitter end
Reaches far and wide
The road that leads me back to you
Is one I’ll never find

I drove out of town four months ago
There’s not much I still remember
But I won’t forget that skyline or
How you looked last December


If I didn’t begin the journey
I’d have never reached the top
Since I left that bridge burning down
I learned to build them up

The bridge that I burned
Is a lesson that I learned
We all have our own regrets
I burned mine to the ground
But that old bridge was rebuilt
You can see it for miles around
