Toni Braxton – Places lyrics

I'm reaching out for you, but it's just an empty bed
Dreamin' that you were here, oh how quickly I forget
That You comin' through the door, is just an echo in my heart
And I try to pretend it's over, but it never gets verified

Cos it just don't feel right when I know you're not there
And the sound of goodbye still follows me everywhere
And I just can't move on, but I feel my heart stop and stare
And the only thing I see are places you used to be

Yeah you used to be yeah

Took all your photographs, and I hid them all away
But each time I close my eyes, I'm staring at your face
I open the closet door, still a hint of your cologne
And I try to pretend it's over, but you're everywhere I go


I still sleep in the shirt
You left on the chair
I still can hear you walk up the stairs
I still can hardly breathe
Each time I forget
That you're not
Here with me
