    Since you've gone, I've been lost without a trace,
                                      Eb
I dream at night I can only see your face,
                                          F
I look around, but it's you I can't re - place,
                                          Eb
I feel so cold, and I long for your em - brace,
                          Gadd9
I keep crying baby, baby, please--------------------!
