On a drive I'm taken back roads
High against where the river's flown'
I didn't think that our love had grown

You had me dead to rights ...
Hey, I'm trying to get some rest .. to keep on moving.

How you been, you looking back
You tried to change your burning boat
Until you realized what you were up against

I spent all those nights
Just trying to take you home
'Til you released me

[I went a-]Cross the bridge
To redefine your pain
Where the answer's in your heart

Wide awake
I rearrange the way I listen in the dark
Dreaming of starting up again

So if you look, you'll find yourself
You're not the demon in the dark
That you and I, yea we'd been through that

Can you rectify it?
Oh, the time it took you
Away from choosing

So as you find yourself flying high up there
When you release me from your heart again (woo!)
I'm just a burning man trying to keep the shit
from turnin' over

Cross the bridge
Derivative of pain
Crush the burning in your heart
Wide awake
To redefine the way you listen in the dark
I'm starving
Like a stranded kid in a doorway
Just burnin'

Yeah, we turn the light in...
