"Burning Bridges" as written by and Lalo/curb Schifrin....
Its been a long dark road but I remember when it meant the world ot me,
Its been a long dark day and a cold black night and it still gets hard to see,
Cause they don't know me and they never will,
Its been a long dark road I still remember why it took so much out of me,
Its a shallow pond we're swimming in and it makes it hard to breath,
Cause they don't know me and they never will
No they don't know why or how it feels to live
Its been a long dark road and I remember skies that weren't so a hard to see,
Its been a long dark day and I remember nights that made me, me
Cause they don't know me and they never will
And they don't know why or how it feels to live

    My InterpretationIts been a long dark road but i remember when it meant the world ot me,
    >> Here he remembers when living meant the world to him and everyday was a good day.

    Its been a long dark day and a cold black night and it still gets hard to see,
    >> Here he talks about how he finds it hard to see whats left to live for in life. He can't see the good things anymore.

    Cause they dont know me and they never will,
    >> The people in his life don't see how he really feels. And he's not about to tell them.

    Its been a long dark road i still remember why it took so much out of me,
    >> Here I THINK he's remembering what changed in his life that took away so much of himself. The reasons why he feels the way he does now.

    Its a shallow pond we're swimming in and it makes it hard to breath,
    >> Whatever he's going through in life right now makes it hard to keep going.

    Cause they dont know me and they never will
    No they dont know why or how it feels to live
    >> Again, the people around him have no idea how he actually feels about his life

    Its been a long dark road and i rememeber skies that weren't so hard to see,
    >> Here he remembers again when life seemed so easy and carefree

    its been a long dark day and i remember nights that made me, me
    >> Here he continues to recall the "good ole days" that shaped who he's become today

    Cause they dont know me and they never will
    and they dont know why or how it feels to live.

    .....

    Thats how I interpret the lyrics. Basically he's found himself living a life that he just isn't happy in anymore. And he misses the days when living everyday was a new adventure and he was happy to wake up in the morning. Something changed somewhere along the line and slowly things just went downhill..
