Lyrics

I’M SORRY, IT’S JUST A PHRASE, THAT CARRIES LITTLE WEIGHT.

IT’S NICE TO HEAR THE SENTIMENT, THOUGH NONE-THE-LESS TOO LATE.

IF A PICTURE PAINTS A THOUSAND WORDS, YOUR ACTIONS SAY MUCH MORE.

THOUGH OPPORTUNITY MAY KNOCK, SOMETIMES IT SLAMS THE DOOR.

 

EVEN THOUGH, IT SEEMS TO ME,

THE LESSON HAS BEEN LEARNED,

DOESN’T QUITE REVERSE THE ACT,

I’M AFRAID THAT BRIDGE HAS BURNED.

 

YOU MADE A PROMISE, SWORE AN OATH, YOU SAID YOUR WORD IS GOOD,

IT’S NOT MY FAULT, PEOPLE CHANGE, I THOUGHT YOU UNDERSTOOD.

SOME WILL SEE, EVENTUALLY, OTHERS NEVER WILL.

SOMETIMES JUST BY ACCIDENT, SOMETIMES AGAINST THIER WILL.

 

EVEN THOUGH, IT SEEMS TO ME,

THE LESSON HAS BEEN LEARNED,

DOESN’T QUITE REVERSE THE ACT,

I’M AFRAID THAT BRIDGE HAS BURNED.

 

EVEN THOUGH, IT SEEMS TO ME,

THE LESSON HAS BEEN LEARNED,

DOESN’T QUITE REVERSE THE ACT,

I’M AFRAID THAT BRIDGE HAS BURNED.

 

YOU BURNED THEM DOWN, ONE BY ONE, THE PIPER MUST BE PAID.

YOU WILL REAP, ALL YOU’VE SOWN, LYING IN THE BED YOU MADE.

 

THE COLLECTED WEIGHT, OF CONSEQUENCE, NOW DANGLES OVERHEAD.

YOU TRY IN VAIN, TO DISAVOW, ALL THE THINGS YOU’VE DONE AND SAID.

 

EVEN THOUGH, IT SEEMS TO ME,

THE LESSON HAS BEEN LEARNED,

DOESN’T QUITE REVERSE THE ACT,

I’M AFRAID THAT BRIDGE HAS BURNED.

EVEN NOW IT SEEMS TO BE,

AS IF THAT BRIDGE HAS BURNED
