"Burning Bridges" as written by and Lalo/curb Schifrin....
Another time, another space
Mark my words, I can't fake another day of sadness
My heart's been taken whole
And this dream is getting old
Yet I'm searching every part of me, baby

The tables' turned, that's for sure
Guilt and honor have crossed into what's left for holding on
You know things are getting hard
When we see them as they are
Can these qualities remain the same?

Woman, feeling good about the choice I made
In so deep there ain't no judgment day
If there was I think I'd be okay

Woman, please release me from your hold tonight
Burning bridges in the morning light
I'm just heavy on this city life

Oh, I tried to tell you
But it's too late to find out
Hanging on the back of my will
Waiting for the moment to be still

Save your problems baby
Save your problems for the world
Then they might go away, go away

I've been contemplating
Keeping it complicated
For when you want to turn the day in
And I just want to turn the day around
I know it hurts a lot
But I gave what I got
Now I'll be getting on my way

Woman, feeling good about the choice I made
In so deep there ain't no judgment day
If there was I think I'd be okay

Woman, please release me from your hold tonight
Burning bridges in the morning light
I'm just heavy on this city life

Tried so hard to love you
But I keep on running
Burning bridges in the morning light
Morning light (**repeat to fade)

    General CommentIts about a guy making a decision to leave his girl. Leave all the complications and problems. He's breaking all ties and leaving it all behind

    General Comment This guy is sooooooo awesome in concert, everysong he plays i can relate to in some way, this song reminds me of an ex that i had, except that i can't seem to burn all the bridges. i tried soo hard to love her, but i kept on running for some reason,

    i've been contemplatin'
    keepin' it complicated
    for when you wanna turn the day in
    and i just wanna turn the day around
    i know it hurts a lot
    but i gave what i got
    now i'll be gettin' on my way

    i know with her i kept things sooo complicated and i contemplated breakin up but it was something that i just couldn't do, but i finally did it, but now i find it hard to leave her behind, like don't get me wrong i'm glad i left her, but theres something that wants to keep her in my life. but that's my interpretation of this song.
