Intro - C, Am, C, Am

Am
   Now it's the same as before

F                       G       Am      Am  G  F 
   And I'm alone again


Am
   With no sorrow for myself

F                               G       Am  G  F
   And I'm blaming no one else


G
   And closing my eyes

G        G         G    D    Em
   And seeing you standing there


First solo:

C, Am, C, Am


Am
   Now it's the same as before

F                                   G    Am    Am  G  F
   You've touched me with your love


Am
   And though you're in my heart

F                             G                Am
   We're still a world apart

Am
   As now I'm back to the time

Am
   Where I would search for a dream

G
   But no use to try anymore as before

Am
   Someday I'll die, and maybe then I'll be with you

Second solo:

C, Am, C, Am,

Am
   So I'm closing my eyes

F                           G            Am
   To hear the people laugh


Am
   For they're all aglow

F                            G      Am  G D G
   Not knowing where to go


G
   But is it asking too much

G                        G   D  Em
   When the question is what to do

G
   With the life I'll have

G
   It seems I know nothing now

G              G   D   Em      Em
   Except my love for you

Em
   And the strength in my hands

Em                             Em
   To go on feeding your smile


A superb ballad from Peter Green. Let me know if you spot
