Another day breaks and the last one's gone
You dig deep just to carry on
Your debt's paid off but it don't feel gone
So you slip out the back and you're moving on, yeah

I can never figure out how to make a case
That this don't amount to a fall from grace
She wants to know can I replace
This tired wool with satin lace

Says you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

Pressure builds 'til it breaks the door
You can build a house you can't build a home
And it's a fool who believes love is bred in the bone
And there're no guarantees that you won't get stoned
Yeah, I'm a fool who believed love is bred in the bone
And there're no guarantees that I won't get stoned

Says you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

I don't know where it leads, oh no
All I know
Is that I don't wanna breathe this chemical breeze no more

So another day breaks and the last one's gone
You dig deep just to carry on
Your debt's paid off but it don't feel gone
So you slip out the back and you're moving on

Says you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

Yeah, you're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast
Put it in the past, put it in the past
If this is a race then I hope you come last
You're on a bridge to nowhere and you're gettin' there fast

    General Commentwhat a good song! It fits the Sam Roberts vibe...just dying to live a meaningful, happy life, and trying to get away from whatever's weighing you down. The vid's really good too!

    I love it when he says "if this is a race then i hope you come last"...I don't really know what it means but i figure it's almost like, angst on the part of the person who's following the bridge to nowhere towards the girl who's saying that he's leading a meaningless life. It's like, he's saying that even though it's meaningless now, it doesn't mean it's gonna be like that forever ("put it in the past, put it in the past"). And it's almost like she's putting him down by telling him that his life is not going anywhere, so he's telling her, since you think you've got it so together now, i hope you really lose it and "come last" in whatever it is you're racing for.
