lyrics

The stars are laid out before me, distant diamonds in the velvet of night
And I can never touch those distant spotlights 'cos I'm running and I'm dreading the dawn

So burn all you bridges, burn your bridges down
Burn, burn them to the river, burn your bridges
Through the smoke, I'm gonna scream what any teenage girl will tell you

Chorus:
So what if I hate the way I look? What do you care?
So what If I'm just a little shy?
There's nothing you can say to make me spill my soul to empty chairs
I'd rather write a love song to someone who isn't there

Just lay my life out before me, I want to make an editor's cut
Your smile always made me uneasy, I'll cut it out and let it fall to the floor

And I'll burn all your bridges, burn your bridges down
Burn, burning all the footage, burning bridges
Through the smoke I'm gonna scream what any teenage girl will tell you

Chorus

Revolution in the eyes of a child, celebration, it's simple really
