Midnights Voice (November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)
Bridges to Yesterday
When the sun goes down
we need a light
so we burn our bridges down.
And holding each other tight in fright
We know we cannot go back
because all our bridges are down
...the sun has gone down
but a full moon of love is rising
We will see our way forward
I won't look back if you won't
there is no turning back
Are you with me?
The bridge burning away to yesterday
Too hot to hang onto, ouch!
Let it go for today.
