Last night I stood too close to a fire I thought had died
But I guess somehow that an ember was still glowing deep inside
And just seeing you again seemed to light my torture new
Cause last night I got too close to a memory of you

Last night I got too close to a memory
Some of the hurt dropped off and it cut all over me
And today the pain keeps growing deep inside of me
Cause last night I got too close to a memory
[ guitar ]
Only a fool in love could warm a memory gone cold
When that memory is a part of a love he couldn't hold
So I guess I'm that fool for when I saw you last night
I felt love's cold ashes burning bight
Last night I got too close...
Cause last night I got too close to a memory
