Oh, I've been stumblin' through the darkness
Tryin' to feel the ground beneath my feet
Afraid of movin' much in any direction
Stuck where the past and the future meet

But I finally got my first good look
A little fire was all it too
An' as the flames grew brighter
I saw everything that I'd missed

Once you get your courage up
You light a match an' your eyes adjust
It's amazing what a man can see
By the light of a burnin' bridge

An' there were things I saw that I'm not proud of
Things that I'd do different now from then
But when I really make myself get honest
It's over and I can't go back again

'Cause I finally got my first good look
A little fire was all it took
An' as the flames grew brighter
I saw everything that I'd missed

Once you get your courage up
You light a match an' your eyes adjust
It's amazing what a man can see
By the light of a burnin' bridge

It sure is hard to let go
And to leave the past behind
But there ain't no other way
That you can find some peace of mind

When I finally got my first good look
A little fire was all it took
An' as the flames grew brighter
I saw everything that I'd missed

Once you get your courage up
You light a match an' your eyes adjust
It's amazing what a man can see
By the light of a burnin' bridge
It's amazing what a man can see
By the light of a burnin' bridge
