lyrics

"To Watch the Bridges Burn"

I just wanna see you run
I just wanna see you fly
but I don't wanna be a part of it

I bite my lips I bite my tongue
I bury al the songs we sung
cause I don't wanna be a part of it
when

You drive away
I know I'll stay
behind to watch the bridges burn
You drive away
you know I'll stay
behind until the bridges burnt

Those foolish eyes ain't fooling me
I'm building cities you will see
and you will never be a part of it

The statues of me will stand tall
my name be sung in every hall
and you will never be a part of it
when

You drive away
I know I'll stay
behind to watch the bridges burn
You drive away
you know I'll stay
behind until the bridges burnt
behind until the bridges burnt
behind until the bridges burnt

I watch my darling drive away
I watch my baby drive away
I watch my baby go
behind us all the bridges burn

She is a veteran performer with 6 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
