nothing takes the place of you lyrics – al green

i moved your pictures from my wall,
and i replaced them, both large and small.
and each new day finds me so blue,
nothing takes the place of you.

i read your letters, one by one,
and i still love you when it’s all said and done.
and, oh, my darling, i’m so blue,
because nothing, oh, nothing takes the place of you.

as i write this letter,
it’s rainin’ on my window pane.
and i, oh-i feel the need of you,
because without you nothin’ seems the same.

so i’ll wait untill you’re home,
again, i love ya, but i’m all alone.
and, oh, my darling, i’m so blue,
because nothing, oh, but nothing takes the place of you.

[instrumental to end.]
