  • I moved your picture
    From my walls
    And I replaced them
    Both large and small
    And each new day
    Finds me so blue
    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

    I, I write this letter
    It's raining on my window pane
    I, I feel the need of you
    Because without you
    Nothing seems the same

    So I'll wait
    Until you're home
    Again I love you
    But I'm all alone
    And oh my darling
    I'm so blue
    Because nothing
    Oh, but nothing takes the place of you Writer/s: PATRICK ROBINSON, TOUSSAINT MCCALL
