But even a small lighter can burn a bridge
Even a small lighter can burn a bridge

from Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The bridge between gang life and being successful (as a rapper) or getting out of the hood can be destroyed easily. After all, it takes one match to start a forest fire.

Also, these are the last two lines Kendrick raps before he goes into the bridge of the song about how his life is evolving. He burned his bridge from a negative past — he won’t go back.

Even something as small or petty as a lighter could bring down a big structure like a bridge.
