Nothing Else Lyrics

by Matthew West

I tried money, I got as much as I could
And I went to the store and I bought it all
But it wasn't enough 'cause I wanted some more
But my house was full
So I bought a bigger house and filled it up
And there I was with all that stuff and empty

Nothing else can take the place of You
It's true
Oh, nothing else can take the place of You
I know it's true

Still I try friendship, I called everyone I knew
And invited them over for a party
They ate all the free food
And they told me how much they loved me
Oh, but when the food was gone, my friends were gone
And there I was all alone and empty

'Cause nothing else can take the place of You
Nothing else
Oh, nothing else can take the place of You
I know it's true, yeah

So take the place, the place of You
And fill this space the way You do
'Cause I'm tired of searching, those days are through
So take the place, it's made for You

Nothing in the world gonna take the place
Nothing in the world gonna take the place
Nothing in the world gonna take the place of You

Not friends or money or alcohol
None of these things, believe me
You can try them all
Not status, not success
I know none of these things
Will ever bring true happiness

Nothing else can take the place of You
Nothing else
Nothing else can take the place of You

Yes, I know
Nothing else can take the place of You
The place of You
Nothing else can take the place of You
