Ron Sexsmith – In Place Of You lyrics

Place of a brick wall, you made a window
Place of the dark hall, you painted a mural
Where there was only weeds you raised a garden
And if I've failed to notice, I'm sorry darling

If you were gone what would I do?
'Cause no one could ever take the place of you
You should go, where would I be?
In place of you, an empty space for me

Place of wandering blind, you put direction
Place of squandering my love and affection
You built a place for me, where I could store it
And I'm eternally grateful for it

If you were gone what would I do?
'Cause no one could ever take the place of you
You should go, where would I be?
In place of you, an empty space for me

There is so much from what I've gathered
Put in place of these things you think you need

Place of emptiness, you put fulfillment
Place of bitterness, you put endearment
Where there was only weeds you raised a garden
And if I've failed to notice, I'm sorry darling

If you were gone what would I do?
'Cause no one could ever take the place of you
You should go, where would I be?
In place of you, empty space for me
Yeah, in place of you, empty space for me
