Burning Bridge Lyrics

[Intro: Kate Bush]
Come close to me
Come cross the bridge

[Verse 1: Kate Bush]
I need to know what you have to say to me
We've been waiting all night long
What have you got to say to me?
We've been waiting all night long
Tell me all about it
We've been waiting all night long
Tell me please
We've been waiting all night long
Oh, I know

[Chorus 1: Kate Bush]
I know it works for me
As we cross the bridge, the burning bridge
With flames behind us
We front the line

[Verse 2: Kate Bush]
It's you and me, baby, against the world
We've been waiting all night long
I've got to know what you have to say
We've been waiting all night long
What have you got to say?
We've been waiting all night long
Oh-oh-oh
We've been waiting all night long
I've got to get close now
We've been waiting all night long
Tell me all about it
We've been waiting all night long
All night long
We've been waiting all night long
All night long
We've been waiting all night long
All night long

[Chorus 2: Kate Bush]
It works for me
It's you and me, babe
We've been waiting all night long
Against the world
All night long

[Chorus 3: Kate Bush]
It works for me
Let's cross the bridge
Oh, I know
We've been waiting all night long
I know, I know
We've been waiting all night long
All night long

[Outro: Kate Bush]
It's you and me, baby
When you stand next to me, it's all right
It's you and me, baby
Against the world
