I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

This a ‘Voice’ cover of the U2 Classic (quite a good version, I think), and a very good opportunity to look at the Present Perfect and practise our Regular and Irregular Verbs.

bleed
climb
crawl
feel
hold
kiss
run
scale

Before you listen to the song, try to guess which form of which verb goes in each gap. The video is at the end:
