Wilburn Brothers – Next Best Thing lyrics

You're gone you're gone you're really gone and won't be back again
I know I should forget you but my heart just won't give in
So we just sit at home alone your memory and I
My friends would call me foolish but I've got a reason why
We do the same things you used to like to do
I sing the same songs I used to sing to you
It's the only consolation that I've found
But it's the next best thing to having you around
[ steel - steel ]
The sweet love words you whispered then still echo in my ear
Your mem'ry still remains so strong it's almost like you're here
I pictured that you left behind a dress I bought for you
These things mean so much more to me than finding someone new
It's just like old times when you were here with me
We have a good time me and your memory
Before I'm over you I run it in the ground
But it's the next best thing to having you around
