The Bridge

lyrics

When I was a young boy
Mama told me to say my prayers
And God will protect.

You're gonna have to rebuild
The bridge you burned.
I'm done waiting on you.

In faith, I spent many an hour
Pleading for your help
Through my trials.
Anticipating a response,
Hearing only silence.
I'm not gonna play Your fool anymore.

You're gonna have to rebuild
The bridge you burned.

Now I am older,
Tainted and disenchanted.
I see the bumper sticker
That says God listens.
But does he answer?
Yes, Does he answer?

You’re gonna have to rebuild
The bridge you burned.
I’m tired of waiting,
I’m done waiting on you.

Now I’m much older
Sitting in my rocking chair
Watching the Sonrise
I realize

I lit the match
That burnt the bridge.
You were always there
Never gave up on me.
Mama was right. Mama was right.

Lifting my ol’bones
Out of my bed
I know He carried me
Through my trials.

I lit the match
That burnt the bridge.
You were always there,
Never gave up on me.
Mama was right. Mama was right.

I lit the match
That burnt the bridge.
You were always there for me,
You never gave up on me.

Lying in my death bed
Looking back at my full life
I utter in my last breath…

You never gave up on me
Why did I give up on you?
