The Bridge I Burned Lyrics

I'm walking down Times Square
In the Electric Daylight
The sailors on shore leave stand out
In their perfect white

I'm up here with my spying glass
At the window of the world
For better or for worse
It's a perverse universe, my love

Now I know, I should have never walked
Over the bridge I burned
Now I know, somehow I don't feel so alone

You mutter underneath your breath
It echoes round the world
Everybody comes from nowhere
There is hope, it loops up in the air

Now I know, I should have never walked
Over the bridge I burned
Now I know, somehow I don't feel so alone

You said, I used to be handsome
If you screwed up your eyes
Professors and vampires
Drank up all the tears I cried

Now there's a bird at my window
He feeds upon the pain
And sometimes he sings to me
A mocking bird in the twilight of infamy

Now I know, I should have never walked
Over the bridge I burned
Now I know, somehow I don't feel so alone

Now I know, I should have never walked
Over the bridge I burned
Now I know, they've burned one sinner
And the others are set to follow

Now I know, now I know, now I know
