Burning Bridges Lyrics

Play "Burning Bridges"
on Amazon Music

You and I were meant to be
Ain't no doubt about it
No way to hide that sort of thing
Now I’m waiting for something better
Ain't nothing better worth imagining

I, I keep on running
I’m building bridges that I know you never wanted
Look...

    It's a breakup song - plain and simple.

    In his mind they were meant to be (first paragraph) but now he says he is waiting for something better to come along. But that something is never gonna be as good as this relationship.

    He can't walk away so he's asking her to do it for him. "Set me on fire...Will you burn my bridges down?"
