Well, everytime I try to love another
I never know exactly what to do
I'd like to tell her just how much I want her
And I could find the way if she were you

Her eyes may shine for me and not another,
Her lonely arms reach out to hold me too,
She wants to take your place and be my lover
And I could make her mine if she were you

I never knew how much I cared about you
Till your memory made me a lovesick fool

When she speaks to me I hear you sweet voice calling
When I close my eyes your face comes into view
I remember how it hurt when I was falling
And I could fall again if she were you

I never knew how much I cared about you
Till your memory made me a lovesick fool
She wants to take your place and be my lover
And I could make her mine if she were you
Yes, I could make her mine if she was you
