Lyrics

WHEN ANGER BURNS A BRIDGE
Sammy Horner/Kylie Horner

It took some figuring out to get us this far down the road
I guess we missed some sweet spots on the way
It gets a little bumpy when you’ve been travelling for a while
You just can’t find the words that you should say

But I ain’t giving up on the two of us
And here’s a little something we could both discuss
We both get a little jaded, that doesn’t mean that love has faded
We’ll take a chance even if it’s slim
When anger burns a bridge
Forgiveness teaches us to swim

This knocking off the edges as we try to get along
It's good at getting under our disguise
Even when it stings some, well I try to keep in mind
If we can stay the distance there's a prize

So I ain’t giving up on the two of us
And here’s a little something we could both discuss
We both get a little jaded, that doesn’t mean that love has faded
We’ll take a chance even if it’s slim
When anger burns a bridge
Forgiveness teaches us to swim

Well there aint no point in seething, they say passion rots the bones
And I'm stuck here treading water and I'm tired

It took some figuring out to get us this far down the road
