“No One Can Take Your Place” by Sam Cooke Lyrics

Whoa, how I love you
Every moment, every moment I can see your face, yes I do
Whoa, how I love you
No one, no one could ever, never will take your place

Whoa, how I love you
Every moment, every moment I know, I know, I know I see your face
Whoa, how, how I love, how I, how I love you
No one, no one, no one could ever, never will take your place, no

Every morning when I rise
I can almost see you standing before my eyes
And every night, every night when I go to sleep
My prayer is our love will keep
I long to see your smiling face
I long to feel your fond embrace
How could anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone ever, ever take your place?

Whoa, how I love you
Every, every, every, every moment I know I see your face
Whoa, how I love, how I, how I love you
No one, no one, no one could ever, ever take your place
