lyrics

I know you tried
To do the right thing
But she had her intentions
And that hemline was tempting

Your eye contact lingered
From across a crowded room
And fire that's not controlled
Will eventually consume

Chorus:
May the bridges you burn light your way
May the bridges you burn light your way
Create an artificial day

Somehow you're able
To justify your compromise
It's just this once you tell yourself
While you rehearse your lies

Water under your burning bridge
The flames are growing high
Water under your burning bridge
Illuminate the sky

Chorus:
May the bridges you burn light your way
May the bridges you burn light your way
Create an artificial day

Who knew she'd get jealous
Confess your sins out of spite
Your pretty apple's filled with poison
But you've swallowed a bite

Your guilt makes you sweat
Beads form on your furrowed brow
A serpent returns to a garden
Discreetly as night will allow

Chorus:
May the bridges you burn light your way
May the bridges you burn light your way
Create an artificial day

I know you tried
To do the right thing
