Survivor - Burning Bridges Lyrics

I can feel a strong desire
A distant fire burning through the past
Deep inside my heart is yearning
A bridge is burning
There's just no turning back
After all the hell I've tasted
Years I've wasted
Love that slipped away
Suddenly a vision shook me
I see the fool I'd become content to play
Over one-way streets in blindin' heat
I carry this torch alone
I ask for no directions home
You can call out my name but I won't return
I'm a fugitive of love and this heart's been burned
Oh, burning bridges behind me
You can follow me down but it's plain to see
I'm a victim of the burn and it's third degree
Oh, setting bridges on fire
I will go to any length
To find the strength
To face the night alone
Standing on the edge of time
I cross the line
My heart becomes my own
Gonna tell you why you're a fool to try
To cross a burning bridge
It's a long hard fall from the top of the ridge
You can call out my name but I won't return
I'm a fugitive of love and this heart's been burned
Oh, burning bridges behind me
You can follow me down but it's plain to see
I'm a victim of the burn and it's third degree
Oh, setting bridges on fire
You can call out my name but I won't return
I'm a fugitive of love and this heart's been burned
Oh, burning bridges behind me
You can follow me down but it's plain to see
I'm a victim of the burn and it's third degree
Oh, setting bridges on fire
Oh, burning bridges behind me
Oh, burning bridges on fire, on fire, oh, oh
