They Just Don't Make 'Em Like You Anymore lyrics

I've looked everywhere there is a love affair
I must replace, racing through the people chase
But still surrounded by memories of your face

They just don’t make ‘em like you anymore
Not up in the mountains or down by the shore
Something shine in the fashion in the smile that you wore
They just don’t make ‘em like you anymore

In the eyes of someone new I wait for a glimpse of you
But it’s never there, one among the precious few
Your kind of person is becoming so rare

They just don’t make ‘em like you anymore
Like those white lace dresses at the second hand store
Or sweet old songs filtering out through the floor
They just don’t make ‘em like you anymore

Fashion comes and the fashion goes
And the gossip magazines and the videos
A brand new actress on a screen
In a brand new style of clothes
But by any other name a rose is still a rose

And it grows in my memories
Wonder if you still are the same while I look for a remedy
Someone with a tender heart to clean your name

They just don’t make ‘em like you anymore
It’s an easy thing to learn but so hard to ignore
Now I know exactly what I’m looking for
They just don’t make ‘em like they made ‘em before

They just don’t make ‘em like you anymore
