  Live alone in a paradise that makes me think of two.

  D          F           C                              G
  Love lost, such a cost, give me things that won't get lost.

  D   F   C   F

2nd Verse:
  Lullabys, look in your eyes, run around the same old town.
  Doesn't mean that much to me to mean that much to you.
  I've been first and last, look at how the time goes past.
  But I'm all alone alone at last, rolling home to you.

This is a Neil Young track from the Harvest album, not CS&N, however as the publisher has removed the ones categorised Neil (boo hiss)... It at least gets it up on the site.
