(Craig Wiseman/Trey Bruce)

I wonder how we got like this
Your heart wasn't mine to take
Mine wasn't mine to give
And love wasn't ours to save
I shoulda let you when I could
When the memories
Weren't so many or so good
And one night was such a small price to pay

A small price to pay
When a touch was all it was
When the fire was just a candle flame
Throwing shadows of us
What I wouldn't give now
For those long gone yesterdays
When one night was such a small price to pay

Well I guess we'd better go
Maybe this time for good
But the last time wasn't though
But never again sure feels good to say
And I think back to the times
When everything I treasured wasn't on this fragile mind
And one night was such a small price to pay

A small price to pay
When a touch was all it was
When the fire was just a candle flame
Throwing shadows of us
What I wouldn't give now
For those long gone yesterdays
When one night was such a small price to pay
Back when one night was such a small price to pay
