Bridge:
------

F                      F
Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace
G                      G
I dream at night I can only see your face
F                      F
I look around but it's you I can't replace
G                      G
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
F                      F         A
I keep crying         baby baby please.....
