I've tried everything that I could think of
Went out and bought some things I've wanted to
Spent money for a while like it's going out of style
Nothing takes the place of loving you
I looked for consolation in the barrooms like too many broken hearted do
I drank a full grop down but every night I found
Nothing takes the place of loving you
Nothing takes the place of holding your soft hands in mine
Empty glasses only leave me blue
Where your sweet lips used to be there's just a taste of wine
And nothing takes the place of loving you
[ piano ]
I thought that I could find someone to help me
Now I can't find the girls I've run through
But after every fling I find the same old thing nothing takes the place of loving you
Nothing takes the place of holding...
Nothing takes the place of loving you
