lyrics

When I told him his wife had died you could see a distant sadness in his eyes.
There's had been a whirlwind elderly romance, a half-hearted second kick at the can, a replacement, a last chance.

She was a sassy socialite, life of the party.
He was kind, good to her grandkids and wealthy.

Their sons and daughters smiled, but didn't approve.
We can't replace the ones we lose.

She wore her insecurities on the hems of thousand dollar dresses.
His fulfillment was at the end of cigarettes and the bottom of whiskey glasses.

Their arrangement became stale as it grew.
We can't replace the ones we lose.

No one was singing: "Stan & Georgie were sweethearts, lordy how they could love."
When we need a fill a hole we take what we can and we run.

She died of complications during a different kind of replacement.
But, by then, when I told him there was no love left.

In the end it became clear and I knew:
We can't replace the ones we lose.
