NOTE: You may enter up to *THREE* icons. For this challenge, anything from the mini series up to the end of season 2.5 is fair game. Please, no spoilery icons from the season 3 trailer.

Each icon must contain at least three words *directly quoted* from the song (this means you do not pick and choose or re-arrange the words to make new sentences). These words must be readable and not teeny tiny text. Remember, we are also awarding an icon the title of 'best application' and to be eligible for that we have to be able to read what your icon says.

Deadline: Challenge 22 closes Wednesday, August 23 @ 10 pm GMT (5 pm EST). Please feel free to promote the challenge around!


Burning Bridges
by Chris Pureka

This is a story of burning bridges
and allowing time to pass
this is a story of forgiveness
and breaking things in my hands
this is a story of understanding
you can't choose who you love
and this is a story of soft skin
and rats in the walls

well you can't just pass along
the pain that comes around
you'll go dizzy until you fall
and I know you didn't mean to let me down
but you let me down so hard

this is a story of loaded glances
and leaning in too far
this is a story of vague advances
and confessions in smoky bars
so now I am walking down the sidewalk
and I am singing to myself
and I'm going to leave it all behind me now
cause I don't need this,
I just don't need this

and you can't just pass along
the pain that comes around
you'll go dizzy until you fall
and I know you didn't mean to let me down
but you let me down so hard

these memories are talking and talking
and I'll do anything to shut 'em up
I've got the pillow over my head
but they won't stop
no, no they won't stop

some fantasies are never meant to be
realized at all
and some regrets could be prevented
if you read the writing on the wall
oh and sometimes you say
"you know nothing can happen"
and then she leans over and lifts off your glasses
and the next thing you know you're just tangled and guilty
and you've got a head full of liquor and perfume
oh and when did you leave me
and when did you find her
and tell me is this just what you wanted...

and when did you leave me
and when did you find her
and tell me is this just what you wanted...

This is a story of burning bridges
and allowing time to pass
this is a story of forgiveness
and breaking things in my hands

this is a story of understanding
you can't choose who you love

and this is a story of soft skin
and rats in the walls

And finally, keep suggesting lyrical prompts for future challenges -- we could use some new suggestions, and there are lots of songs out there that fit BSG. And we would love if you promoted this challenge wherever you can - it's always great to get new people involved!
