You can go to the East
To find your, your inner hemisphere
You say we're under the same sky
Babe, you're bound to realize
Honey it's not that clear
I'm not your promised land at all, oh no
I'm not your promised one
I'm not the land of Canaan, oh, sweetheart
Waiting for you under the sun

I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now
Wanting your love and you're giving it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight (oooh... yeah)

Well, the meaning's changed
For what it's worth, it's just a senseless game, ah
Well I should think of a love
But it's fear every time I hear
Honey your heartbeat strain
It's not the fallen man, honey, ah
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
Wanting your love and you're giving it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight (oooh... yeah)

My blood is running dry, my skin is
My skin is growing thin (skin is growin' thin) oh yeah
For every time you find yourself
You lose a little bit of me (you lose a little bit)
Honey, from within (you loose a little bit)
It's just a raging cycle (it's just a raging, raging cycle)
Why can't we bring it all to the end of the line (I'd like to bring it to the end of the line)
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 you're giving it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight (oooh... yeah)

I'm not your promised land (I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your promised one (Honey I'm trying)
I'm not your promised land (to tell you that I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your promised one
I'm not the land of Canaan (I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your land of Canaan (I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not the land of Canaan, sweetheart
Waiting for you under the sun
I'm lonely tonight...

And to the detractors... you just don't get it! Go wait in the car, if you can't behave, you spoiled brats!
Stomps off to the car...

i'm trying to like this, but i can't get past that it's so annoyingly repetitive... posters below say that there's something the people like you and me aren't "getting," so i guess i'll give it another chance next time. but for now...a "5."

I was going to post something mean about the indigo girls, but you chastised me. :wink:
speaking of, "Ghost" wouldn't be a bad song for them to listen to as well. :jump: jkdufair wrote:
While this may not be the best song of theirs, any detractors should hear the following songs: The Wood Song Chickenman Faye Tucker Love's Recovery Before they give up the ghost.

This is good, but I prefer the live version RP has been playing lately. More edge all the way around.
I agree- the live version has so much power that this is like watered milk by comparison. They're singing this one for fun - they sing the other and they are pissed and full of passion - yea!

I\'m really tired of these two. I liked them when they first came out, they were different. Now I\'m just sick of them.
is it just me -- a confirmed cat lover -- who imagines this song done as an animated cartoon of singing cats? those voice tones... :D
Yuk. I\'ve never understood the popularity of these hippie wannabes. Bland, boring, banal.

Sorry, "edge" and Velveeta Girls? I don't think so.

Harmonies that are beautiful, words that are heart wrenching - how can you not love the Indy\'s?? Play more!
