There's an empty place beside me,
When I'm walkin' down the street.
That's the place where you used to walk,
The place where you held my hand.
Now I reach and all I touch is space,
An empty, empty place.

Sadness and tears, that's all you left me.
They're such sad souvenirs,
Of a love that once was oh so very great.
The greatest love, reaching all the way to the stars above.
And now there's not a star left in the sky,
And if you don't come back to me I'll die.
Only your embrace can fill this empty place.

If I don't fill this emptiness,
I know that I'll lose my mind.
Looking out and only seeing space,
An empty, empty place.

Ah, sadness and tears, that's all you left me.
They're such sad, sad souvenirs,
Of a love that once was oh so very great.
The greatest love, reaching all the way to the stars above.
But now there's not a star left in the sky,
And if you don't come back to me I'll die.
Only your embrace can fill this empty place.

Come back, come back, come back to me.
Come back and fill my empty arms,
I need your lovin' darling.
Your lips are lovin' darling.
(Above lines repeat 3 times to fade out)
