  D               F             C                 F
  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.

  Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

  D   F   C   G
  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.

(repeat chorus and go immediately into intro again
but on the last "you were" finish as below...)

D        F      C     G     D
you were.
