Why didn't ya show me
Why didn't ya let me know
Why didn't ya hold me
Why can't you let me go

There's a heart ache in New York City keepin you awake all night long
Something you forgot to say to make me stay
If I was the best you never had

Why didn't ya show me
Why didn't ya let me know
Why didn't ya hold me
Why can't you let me go

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
You wanna go back to the night we left behind
Well maybe I don't know much about nothin, but I know a little bit about
Lovin'
There's just no going back to once upon a time

You could never be more in love with me
I saw it in your eyes on that winter night
But I never, never, never felt so cold
You hid your heart
What I don't know can't keep me warm
So...

Why didn't ya show me
Why didn't ya let me know
Why didn't ya hold me, hold me
Why can't you let me go

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
You wanna go back to the night we left behind
Well maybe I don't know much about nothin, but I know a little bit about
Lovin'
There's just no going back to once upon a time

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
Once upon a time
I coulda, I coulda blown your mind.

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
I don't wanna go back to the night we left behind
Well baby...
I don't know much about nothin', but I know a little bit about lovin'
There's just no going back to once upon a time

Once upon a time
I don't wanna go back
I don't wanna go back
I don't wanna go back
Cuz baby...
I don't know much about nothin', but I know a little bit about lovin'
There's just no going back to once upon a time

Why did ya let me go
