Lyrics by Dave Mason:

Shouldn't have took more than you gave
Then we wouldn't be in this mess today
I know we've all gone different ways
But the dues we have to pay are still the same

It's time to change the script for this old play
You're readin' and not feelin' what you say
Comin' on too strong for me to stay
Interpret what you see in any way

It seems the simple things
Are hardest to explain
Wind is gonna come too soon
And deaden all the pain
Footprints in the snow will show
Where the things are still the same
Till you get the warmer sun 
Of someone else to live again

Shouldn't have took more than you gave
Then we wouldn't be in this mess today
I know we've all gone different ways
But the dues we have to pay are still the same

Shouldn't have took more than you gave
Shouldn't have took more than you gave
Shouldn't have took more than you gave
Shouldn't have took more than you gave
