Words & Music: Howard/ Blaikley
Lying by your side I watch you sleeping
And in your face the sweetness of a child
Murmuring the dreams 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 this 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 will neither of us know

Oh, 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

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

Oh I've lost you, oh, I've lost you
Oh, You won't admit it so
I've lost you on a journey,
But I can't remember where or when no more

Oh, 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

Oh, 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
Recorded: 1970/06/04, first released on single

Elvis also did Johnny Cash's song I walk the line, at least half the song, so that should be in here as well.

Not a great song, drags on too long. The studio version is better then the live one. But neither has much appeal to me.

The studio version is much better then the live version. If the studio version was released as a single, then that would make sense, because that version was not on the LP.

Fantastic single, I really like both sides a lot. Better than the Ian Matthews version.

There is a version where the word's change slightly, not too keen on that version, but the LP version is good as is the whole LP. 5 Stars

I always preferred the flip side 'The Next Step Is Love' although some charts coupled them together as a double sided hit. Very classy material and well sung but was more of an album cut than a single release.

This is such a fantastic song and the only version of it that I like is Elvis' studio version with the absolute complete lyrics. I've never liked the live version.

I adore the live version from TTWII. It took me a long time to get used to the studio version which felt less impactful. Same goes for Patch it Up from the same album/movie. Possibly not that commercial but surely a fan favourite for those of us who love the seventies material.

Very strong adult type ballad that Elvis sings very well. The songs were getting bit dramatic by 1970, and this one was bad choice for a single when you look at the incredible amount of songs recorded in June 1970. Many would have been better single choices that this. Good but not commercial at all for AM radio.

Another strong track from the outstanding LP "That's The Way It Is". Not one of the best on the LP, but still a fantastic performance by Elvis. I slightly prefer the studio version that appeared on the single as opposed to the live cut on the LP, but I also feel it was an odd choice for a single, especially as a follow-up to "The Wonder Of You". "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" backed by "Patch It Up" should have been the summer single of '70 or perhaps Elvis' incredible version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water"....Still I give the studio version 4 1/2 stars and the live version 4 stars.

I've always loved this song (single version). 5 stars.

Love it. I prefer the live version from TTWII above the studio. 4 stars.

A single that did quite well in the UK charts, although I think the B side, The Next Step Is Love would have even done better.

Good adult ballad, poor single choice however. Strictly an LP cut in my opinion. No radio appeal.
