This Burning Bridge

by IdTakeABulletForYou   Dec 4, 2006

Here I lay
No love to lust for
I've never been so lonely before

Oh! Gone is love
Gone from my heart
The day you tore my soul apart
Oh! Gone I am
Oh! Gone I'll be
I'll be gone for eternity

You know I know
You know I do
As tears and silence fills the room
This emptiness
Placed on my chest
You were the best
... You failed the test

You know... you know
You're sure of what you have done wrong

I'm gone... I'm gone...
You chose to stop our wedding song

And here I am, blue tears are black
This bridge is burnt, no turning back
It seems so wrong, I must go on
I have been hurting for much too long

You know that I'm gone...
He knows just what he has done wrong...


It's something that he cannot fix
He can't rebuild this burning bridge
It's slowly burning to the ground
I won't look back or turn around
I will move on because I must
Not cause I look for newborn lust
It's 'cause I have to find a way
To rid myself of all this pain
To cleanse my heart and cleanse my soul
So I can walk along this road
I must so that I can survive
I don't need you, to stay alive
I'm gone as you look upon me
And see the person that I'll be
With passion, you'll see what you lost
Without the match, there'd be no spark
And if you didn't burn this bridge
I'd still be there to travel it
You know I'm gone, you lost the game
I know you'll never change your ways
And by this time it is rebuilt
You won't have me to pay the bill

You had to play with fire, now you pay the price that's due
And by the time you pay it back, I will be over you

    When I read the first line
    I felt that it was kind of force.
    I thought I had mistaken
    But once I read the second line
    I felt the same way.
    But the third stanza
    "You know I know"
    It's beautiful.
    So "poetic"
