"Bridges" as written by Joel Little, Georgia Josiena Nott and Caleb Allan Joseph Nott....
Gave you a minute
When you needed an hour
Chose to push it aside
Instead of leaving behind you
If any word that I said
Could have made you forget
I'd have given you them all
But it was all in your head

Now we're burning all the bridges now
Watching it go up in flames
No way to build it up again
And we're burning all the bridges now
'Cause it was sink or swim
And I went down, down, down

And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now

If I didn't hit it
Would you still say you needed me
Guess I walked right into it
Guess I made it too easy
If any word that you said
Could have made me forget
Would I get up off the floor
'Cause this is all in my head

And we're burning all the bridges now
Watching it go up in flames
No way to build it up again

And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now

Can we forget about it
Can we forget
Can we forget about it
Can we forget

Burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now

    Song ComparisonWhen you compare the NZ video with the lyrics you come out with what the song means.
    Basically, a girl and a boy fall in love. They rush into it. Hence "I gave you a minute, when you needed an hour" They are on a adventurous relationship. In which they are deeply in love. "I would've given you them all"
    The boy becomes abusive. Domestic violence occurs. "If i didn't hit it" "burning bridges" and many more lyrics. In the video he tried killing her with a pillow after a simply and playful pillow fight. However, he is afraid of simply touching her due to his respect for her.
    He then looks at her and realizes it was a mistake and that he loves her. Hence "Can we forget about it"
    She can't exactly forgive him though. However she does accept it. Later on they are found joking around with vampire teeth when he pushes her down to the floor. Once again being a little aggressive. He puts both of his arms around her and leans in to kiss her. She pushes him off and runs away. He regrets it because he believes he rushed into it. "I gave you a minute, when you needed an hour"
    Perhaps the girl was in a abusive relationship or such before due to her lack of trust. They had "burned down the bridges"
