Rhyming and Lyrics – Burnin’ All My Bridges

Burnin’ All My Bridges by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

I never meant to lose you while I was tryin’ to find myself
I never meant to send you to the arms of someone else
But now what’s done is done and I will never be the same
I’ve set fire to all my bridges so you can’t come back again

Burnin’ all my bridges, settin’ fire to the rain
I’ve got my blowtorch set on high and filled with gasoline

I never meant to hurt you when I kept hurtin’ myself
I never meant to make you think I wanted someone else
But now what’s done is done and I’ve moved on with no regret
Except that I forgot to give you all the heart that I had left

Burnin’ all my bridges, settin’ fire to the rain
I’ve got my blowtorch set on high and filled with gasoline

Douse my bridge with high-octane and set my soul on fire
I rented out my body and my heart is not for hire
I’ll never love again after these things I’ve done to you
And it breaks my heart most every day to know that we are through

I’m burnin’ all my bridges, settin’ fire to the rain
I’ve got my blowtorch set on high and filled with gasoline
Oh yes I’ve got my blowtorch set on high and filled with gasoline

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
