{Amy uses 320003 and x32010 for G and C; Emily plays 320033 and 332010. 
 Amy also plays a very brief D chord sometimes between G and C (but not 
 between C and G); I can't even hear it in the recording, but I saw her 
 do it in concert.}

{intro} 
 
G                C 
 You can go to east to find your 
G                  C 
 Your inner hemisphere 
G                         C 
 You say we're under the same sky babe 
           G                    C 
 Don't you realize, honey it's not that clear 
G                       C 
 I'm not your promised land, honey you know that I'm not 
G                       C 
 I'm not your promised one 
 
D                      D 
 I'm not the land of Canaan, oh, sweetheart 
D                          D 
 Waiting for you under the sun 
 
               G                      C 
 I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now 
                    G                      C 
 I'm wanting your love and your giving it out 
               G                   C 
 I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight 
               G                 C 
 I'm lonely tonight, oooooh ooh, ooh yeah 
 
Well the meaning's changed for what it's worth 
It's just a senseless game 
Well I should think of love, but it's fear 
Every time I hear, honey, your heartbeart strain 
It's not the fallen man, honey you know that it's not 
It's not the call of time 
 
It's just the London skyline, oh sweetheart 
Telling me you're not mine 
 
I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now 
I'm wanting your love and your giving it out 
I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight 
I'm lonely tonight, oooooh ooh, ooh yeah 
 
G  C  G  C    G  C  G  C    D  D  D  D    G  C  G  C 
{guitar solo} 
 
My blood is running dry, my skin is 
My skin is growing thin, oh yeah 
For every time you find yourself 
You lose a little of me, and honey it's from within 
It's just a raging cycle 
Why can't we bring it on to the end of the line, tell me baby 
 
From inside this existence, oh sweetheart 
Time is not on my side 
 
I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now 
I'm wanting your love and your giving it out 
I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight 
I'm lonely tonight, oooooh ooh, ooh yeah 
I'm not your promised land, I'm not your promised one 
I'm not your promised land, I'm not your promised one 
 
I'm not the land of Canaan, oh, sweetheart 
I'm not your land of Canaan, oh, sweetheart 
I'm not the land of Canaan, sweetheart 
Waiting for you under the sun 
              C - G/B - G/A   G. 
I'm lonely tonight

RHYTHM GUITAR: 
 
Here's Amy's strumming pattern, roughly.  I think the (9)'s are actually 
scattered more or less randomly throughout the song.

LEAD GUITAR SOLO: 
 
I can take no credit for figuring this out; someone mailed it to me in 
standard tablature form, and I just typed it up into e-mailable text. 
So any mistakes are not my fault (although if you spot any, let me know, 
and I'll fix them).  Sorry about the T,E,W thing; if you can find a 
better way to do it (while preserving the timing), let me know! 
 
Symbols: 
   =    hammer-on or pull-off 
   /    slide up 
   \    slide down 
 T,E,W  (T)enth, (E)leventh, t(W)elfth fret; I did this so that I could 
             notate the high frets with single characters. 
  ^ .   These are timing markers; each ^ is a quarter note.
