Elvis recorded I’ve Lost You on June 4, 1970, at RCA’s Nashville studios. The single release had a nine-week stay on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, peaking at # 32. On the country and Easy-Listening charts I’ve Lost You reached # 57 and # 5, respectively. Sales reportedly exceeded on million copies. Elvis sang I’ve Lost You in his 1970 documentary, Elvis – That’s The Way It Is. That performance was filmed on August 13, 1970, at the International Hotel in Las Vegas.

 

Lyrics:
 

Lying by your side I watch you sleeping
And in your face the sweetness of a child
Murmuring a dream you won't recapture
Though it will haunt the corners of you mind

I've lost though you're near me
And your body's still is kind
I've lost you on a journey,
But I can't remember where or when

Who can tell when summer turns to autumn
And who can point the moment love grows cold
Softly without pain the joy is over
Though why it's gone we neither of us know

1. I've lost you, yes, I've lost you
I can't reach you anymore
We ought to talk it over now
But reason can't stand in for feeling, oh

 

1. (repeat)

Six o'clock the baby will be crying
And you will stumble, sleeping to the door
In the chill and solemn grey of morning
We play the parts that we have learned too well

1. 1. 1. 1. 1. (repeat)
