It only took a minute for us to finally end it
I guess we'd seen it comin' for some time
And it only took one hour to sit and talk it over
But it took us all night long to say goodbye

Now the flame is gone I know
And the ashes have grown cold
And the love we had we'll never have again
But there's one ember left that must have never died
'Cause it took us all night long to say goodbye

Too many tears have fallen, too many dreams were broken
And holdin' on would be a waste of time
But sometimes I know I'll wonder if it was really over
'Cause it took us all night to say goodbye

Now the flame is gone I know
And the ashes have grown cold
And the love we had we'll never have again
But there's one ember left that must have never died
'Cause it took us all night long to say goodbye

There's one ember left that must have never died
'Cause it took us all night long to say goodbye
