1.    I ain't lost, but I've been searching,

G                  C                    D      - D7

    and every lining has a cloud.

G                          C                 D                - D7

    Would you still be there if I called you,

G                   C                       D          - D7

    or would I lose you in the crowd ?

    And time and tide will wait for no one,

                 G    - C                      D      - D7

count the cost,       now you're gone,

                    G     - C              D    - D7

now you're gone.      Yeah, yeah.
