Bridges, the latest entry from Folk singer, Thomas Lavine, reflects on heartbreak induced trauma. He pours his soul out into this one, and delivers a wave of emotions that connects with people close to these situations. Burning bridges aren’t always the best route to go, but if someone is too toxic for you, I would burn that bridge for you myself.
Too many relationships that are toxic nowadays because of the cool factor. I must’ve been misinformed when getting cheated on or lied to was apart of being together with your girlfriend/boyfriend. Same can be said for relationships that aren’t romantic, some people aren’t built to be in your life.
I need a place to start
Left with a broken heart
This was one of my favorite lines from Bridges. It stood out to me. Why? After a breakup, there’s nothing you can do except sit and ponder the next move. Feelings never fade away as fast as we want them too. It’s a slow burn that we have to sit through, in order to collect ourselves together and move on.
He captured these elements, and as sad as the song is, Bridges is a wake up call or a reminder, to cut the negative people out of your life. Once they show you their hand, it’s hard to change the stripes on a tiger.
