Bridges Into Ashes

The soundtrack to my life
is playing Beethoven's #5
scaring me half to death
scaring me as I try to find
something to change this song
and move on to something calm

you give me every reason
to turn sorrow into matches
that and shame are all that's needed
to turn bridges into ashes...

cant make friends with everyone around me
so I guess I'll stay at home
play some sad and beautiful songs and
sing myself to sleep alone

you give me all that I need
to turn sorrow into matches
light it up with no regrets and
turn bridges into ashes...

cant live life like in storybooks that I read
so I guess I'll build a wall
hide from all the perfect lives I never see
and find the place that I call home

and you give me every reason
to turn sorrow into matches
light it up with no regrets and
turn bridges into ashes

can't tell what will happen if I stay here
but can't find the will to go
battles in my head about all this
just don't want to be alone

you give me every reason
to turn sorrow into matches
that and shame are all that's needed to turn bridges into ashes
and you give me all that I need to
turn sorrow into matches
light it up with no regrets and turn bridges into matches...

and move on to something calm.
