​Nothing Will Take Your Place

This song is by Boz Scaggs and appears on the album Boz Scaggs & Band (1971).

Maybe you've got your mind made up
Don't know where to start
Or maybe you hold your painted cup
Too close to your heart
What about what you said today
That was all you ever had to say
No one else ever made it sound just that way

Take your places
Show your faces

Days break without takes and accidents
Your baby cries your lovers lie
You must make sense
But all you ever had to do
Is do what you have to do
And you're the only one who knows
Just exactly what that is

Take your places
Show your faces

Without you dear there's nothing here
It's all a mystery
So stay right there and take good care
Just for me

Nothing will ever take your place
Nothing will ever take your place

Thoughts and day dreams fill the air
They fly around like birds
And I can sing you melodies
And they just sound like words
Wanna know what they say
You overhear it everyday
You're the one we've been hearing all about

Take your places
Show your faces

Without you dear there's nothing here
It's all a mystery
So stay right there and take good care
Just for me

Nothing will ever take your place
Nothing will ever take your place
