George Strait By The Light Of A Burning Bridge Lyrics

Last updated: 06/28/2005 11:00:00 AM

Oh, I've been stumblin' through the darkness,
Tryin' to feel the ground beneath my feet.
Afraid of movin' much in any direction...
Stuck where the past and the future meet.

But I fin'lly got my first good look...
A little fire was all it too.
An' as the flames grew brighter,
I saw everything that I'd missed.
Once you get your courage up,
You light a match an' your eyes adjust...
It's amazing what a man can see,
By the light of a burnin' bridge.

An' there were things I saw that I'm not proud of.
Things that I'd do diff'rent now from then.
But when I really make myself get honest,
It's over and I can't go back again.

'Cause I fin'lly got my first good look...
A little fire was all it took.
An' as the flames grew brighter,
I saw everything that I'd missed.
Once you get your courage up,
You light a match an' your eyes adjust...
It's amazing what a man can see,
By the light of a burnin' bridge.

[Instrumental break]

It sure is hard to let go and to leave the past behind,
But there ain't no other way that you can find some peace of mind.

When I fin'lly got my first good look...
A little fire was all it took.
An' as the flames grew brighter,
I saw everything that I'd missed.
Once you get your courage up,
You light a match an' your eyes adjust...
It's amazing what a man can see,
By the light of a burnin' bridge.
It's amazing what a man can see,
By the light of a burnin' bridge.
