Whoa, whoa, ohhhhh, whoa, oh

You can only push someone so far
You can only break so many hearts
We used to be love one another
Now it's lust for your lover
Baby, I was trying to burn bridges of stone
Yeah

Chorus:
You can only wait
You can only wait so long
You can only wait
You can only wait so long
In this game we play
Can't tell right from wrong
You can only wait so long

Here come the memories of yesterday
Here's the poetry
Of all those things I couldn't even say
You can only wait so long
Before your flower petals are all gone
Baby, I was trying to burn bridges of stone
Ain't nobody crying for what used to be home
Yeah

[Repeat Chorus]

Ohhh

Why couldn't you hold on to me?
I was right here
Laying in our bed
Said, ohh
All those things I didn't see
All those things I never should of said

You can only push someone so far
You can only break so many hearts
You can only wait so long
Before your flower petals are all gone
Baby, I was trying to burn bridges of stone.

[Repeat Chorus]

Whoa, Whoa

Why couldn't you call out for me
It's not like I was ever far away
Said, ohhh
Tie me to the edge and start to leap
There's nothing left here
But a million words to say

We all have memories
And I have spent my time in vain
Here's to our enemies
And I will leave you with no pain
We will find a way somehow
In this running just to know goodbye
Baby, I was trying to burn bridges of stone
You won't find me crying for what used to be home

[Repeat Chorus]

In this game we play
We can't tell right from wrong
Cause you can only wait so long
In this game we play
We can't tell right from wrong
Cause you can only wait so long

    General CommentThe Bridges of Stones lyrics are the BEST lyrics ever. But these here are the wrong ones! Especially the 3rd verse is completely different.

    And there are two versions: The live and the studio version.
