The Flames lyrics

I gathered my shipwrecks
In the palm of my hand
And I burned all of my bridges
And the ports up on land

And let out a sigh
Of relief and of shame
And the flickering light
Of the torch in my hand

I won't let my skin harden
Won't let it grow scales
I said I'll keep my heart beating
Between its moans and its wails

While the smokestacks were growing
Fed by the flames
In the back of my head
She hung on by her nails

And with the shape of her body
Still fresh in my mind
And the urge to go too
Erik, just leave it behind

"Cause you've burned all of your bridges
And you've burned her as well
Oh let go, yeah let go
Man, just leave it behind
