"Burn Bridges" as written by and Alana Skyring Patience Hodgson....
I know people on the other side, on the other side, I've got friends and they've got my back.
I know people on the other side, on the other side, got my ticket no turning back.

If love was an ocean would you have a swim, would you have a sail? My man's an ocean and I'm a whale.
If god was a gamble would you make a bet, would you make a bet? Well god is a gamble does it make you sweat?

Burn them bridges down, to the ground, cos I won't be coming this way again.
Burn them bridges down, to the ground, cos I won't be coming this way again.

1, 2, 3.

Spent time making trouble, doing the right thing.
Spent time making trouble, what's the sum of everything...

Burn them bridges down, to the ground, cos I won't be coming this way again.
Burn them bridges down, to the ground, cos I won't be coming this way again.
Don't fear your lions I've got a flame cos I won't be coming this way again.
Don't need no help to heal mistakes cos I won't be coming this way again.

    General CommentBefore this song, I though they were kind of overrated and annoying, but now I think I get them more. The song's just simple fun- no intelligent inner meaning, but that doesn't detract from it at all.

    General CommentThe Grates have spoken about this being a leaving school song, and that's the strongest message I take from it. It's a wonderful track, and their new album is, I think, a very interesting take on their style. I am very impressed.
