The Loved Ones - The Bridge lyrics

On a bridge made of stone stands a man all alone
The bridge was his motivation, it worked him to the bone
With every nail that he drove, it drove him farther from his own
In his punishing isolation, the bridge just feels like home

She didn't feel quite the same, she despised the bridge and who he became
She left in devastation, she left him there in shame
He said "I don't understand," this was not part of the plan
But it got lost in the translation like a castle made of sand

In all the years he's spent struggling, he's been haunted at every turn
He fights the fear that he's growing old
And reminds us in all that he's learned
That we build and burn

Here I am all alone on that bridge made of stone
With smothering motivation, I'm working to the bone
In the end it's what I've known, it's what I hate but have to show
The bridge is my dedication, the bridge just feels like home

In all the years I've been struggling, I've been haunted at every turn
I fight the fear as I'm growing old
And remember in all that I've learned
That we build and burn
