Bridges - Broods



The Experience: Loving someone means constantly building bridges between your life and theirs. Between your heart and theirs. And when the last bridge burns to ashes...


Music Video: A romance fizzles out for lack of true comunication. They might hang around and fool around... but they never talk.


The Meaning of Bridges: The whole song hinges on two meanings of burning the bridges. The phrase can mean total commitment - you burn the bridges to prove that you will never go back. But burning the bridges can also mean the total wreck of a relationship - no comunication, no connection, no nothing. The second meaning is what Broods have in mind: it was sink or swim and I went down. In the end, the answer to the question, "Can we forget about those mistakes?" is no.

Ask Yourself: Do your friends know you? Do you know them? Deeply?


LYRICS:

Gave you a minute
When you needed an hour
Just to push it aside
Instead of leaving it behind you

If any word that I said
Could have made you forget
I'd have given you them all
But it was all in your head

And we're burning all the bridges now
Watching it go up in flames
And then we'd build it up again

And we're burning all the bridges now
Cause it was sink or swim and I went down, down, down

And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now

If I didn't hide it
Would you still say you needed me?
Guess I walked right into it
Guess I made it too easy

If any word that you said could have made me forget
Would I get up off the floor
Cause this is all in my head

And we're burning all the bridges now
Watching it go up in flames
And then we'd build it up again

And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now

Can we forget about it?
Can we forget
Can we forget about it?
Can we forget

Burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
And we're burning all the bridges
Burning all the bridges now
