By The Light Of A Burning Bridge

George Strait

   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...
Chorus:   Finally got my first good look,
    A little fire is all it took
    And as the flames grew brighter,
I saw everything that I missed
    Once you get your courage up,
    You light a match and your eyes adjust...
It's amazing what a man can see
By the light of a burning bridge                 

Verse 2: There were things I saw that I'm not proud of

Things that I'd do different now from then

But when I really make myself get honest,

It's over, and I can't go back again

'Cause I...

Repeat Chorus:
Bridge: 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

Well I...

Repeat Chorus:

It's amazing what a man can see by the light of a burning bridge...
