Her hair is soft and her eyes are oh so blue
She's all the things a girl should be
But she's not you

She knows just how to make me laugh when I feel blue
She's ev'rything a man could want
But she's not you

And when we're dancing
It almost feels the same
I've got to stop myself from
Whisp'ring your name

She even kisses me like you used to do
And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

And when we're dancing
It almost feels the same
I've got to stop myself from
Whisp'ring your name

She even kisses me like you used to do
And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you

And it's just breaking my heart
'Cause she's not you
