Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing Baby Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
Verse 2
I got your picture hangin' on the wall
It can't see or come to me when I call your name
I realize it's just a picture in a frame
Verse 3
I read your letters when you're not near
But they don't move me
And they don't groove me like when I hear
Your sweet voice whispering in my ear
Verse 4
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
Verse 5
I play the game, a fantasy
I pretend but I'm not in reality
I need the shelter of your arms to comfort me
Verse 6
No other sound is quite the same as your name
No touch can do half as much to make me feel better
So let's stay together
Verse 7
I got some memories to look back on
And though they help me when you phone
I'm well aware nothing can take the place of being there
Verse 8
So glad we got the real thing, baby
So glad we got the real thing
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby
Ain't nothing like the real thing
