Only you, could ever know
How hard it was for me to let you go
Hard to face, all those nights
And suffer through, all the fool's advice

Seems to me, it's not so bad
To try for the kind of love, that we had
Oh I need that romance
One that grows strong when it's got no chance

Now you're gone away, and I'm left to carry on
Ain't nobody else gonna bear up to comparison
And if I can't have the real thing
Then I've got to find someone
Just like you
Somebody like you (to fill this empty space)

What you got, is what you need
There's pain in that
But it's plain enough to see
I know I was satisfied
But nobody else came out on my side

Now you're gone away, and I'm left to carry on
Ain't nobody else gonna bear up to comparison
And if I can't have the real thing
Then I got to find someone
Just like you (I hope someone will come today)
Somebody like you (someone to take me all the way)
Somebody like you (someone fill this empty place)
