All around [Bsus4]me [B] [Bsus2] [B]

And I [C]look for the [Csus2]feeling

Of your [C]arms to re[Csus2]mind me

Of [G]everything that's [Bm/G]dear to me

And is [Am]always in my [C/A]heart

Could [Bm/D]so easily be [D]taken

And it's [G5/D]tearing me [D]apart

Going [Am]over and over in my [C/A]mind

I [Bsus4]relive it one [B]second at a [Bsus2]time [B]
