Billy Joe Royal — Old Bridges Burn Slow lyrics

Here we go round again
Masqueradin' as long lost friends
'Cause a memory never dies, it kinda fades into a lie
And, what da ya know
Still waters run deep
Old bridges burn slow
Still waters run deep, now baby
Old bridges burn slow
Let's chaulk it all up to our youth
That's one way to hide from the truth
I never askes you for a thing and if I had
You would have told me no
Still waters run deep
Old bridges burn slow
Still waters run deep, now baby
Old bridges burn slow
But how many years did I chase after you
All my mind would allow
But now I can't break off the past and even if I knew how
Ah, I wouldn't tell it to you, baby
So why don't we call it a day
I got nothin' else left to say
'Cause a dream we both dream't was
Just a last ditch attempt to stop the flow
Still waters run deep
Old bridges burn slow
Still waters run deep, now baby
Old bridges burn slow
Mmmmmmm
Don't ya know they burn slow
In a way I know and I know
Don't ya know they burn slow
Still waters run deep
Old bridges burn slow
Ahhhhh, how they burn (fade
