Now, as to the song proper: F - G - F - G
C GHey, you say you're looking for something you've never found.
Am GWell, the last time I checked I was lost and wandering around,
C G'cause I know just how it feels to be the best thing you ever had,
Am Gbut still not quite good enough to be the last one.
F G FAnd there you go again, spinning all your wheels.
GYou never know what you've got until you lose it,
F G F Gand here I am still waiting after all these years.
CWell, you can look all over this great big world,
Gand you can look down every street,
Amin every bookstore, on every dancefloor,
Gat every girl you meet.
CAnd you can drive out to California
Gand chase down all of your dreams.
AmI'm sure you'll find someone beautiful,
G F Gbut you'll never...you'll never find me.
F GYou'll never find me.
C GHey, they say that real love is completely letting go.
Am GWell, my hands are way up in the air and you're somewhere in Arizona.
C GJust a few more hundred miles and you'll have everything you need,
Am Gexcept for these arms to hold you when that lie brings you to your knees.
F G FAnd there you go again, spinning all your wheels.
GYou never know what you've got 'til you lose it,
