Burning Bridges (Louis Toliver Jr)

You’re the fool that likes to burn bridges
And you’re ‘bout to burn the one ‘tween us

This is a warning to you that gets off on destruction

The kerosene that fumes around you will corrode you
And no one wants to be around that smell of loneliness

Of course, I won’t apologize for smiling when it happens
‘Cause I won’t longer feel taken advantage of

So the next time you light your deceitful match
It better be for a cigarette and not this bridge

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
