Capo 3

Intro
Em    B   C    G  B7

Verse 1
Em               B
2 a.m., where do I begin?
C             G      B7
Crying off my face again
Em                   B
The silent sounds of loneliness
C               G     B7
Wants to follow me to bed

Pre-Chorus
       C           D           G         Em
I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most
         C          D           B
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well

Chorus
Em                   B
Dancing slowly in an empty room
C                       G        B7
Can the lonely take the place of you?
   Em                 B
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
C                        G                   B7
Let you go and let the lonely in to take my heart again

Interlude
Em      B

Verse 2
Em            B
Too afraid to go inside
C                        G        B7
For the pain of one more loveless night
Em                      B
But the loneliness will stay with me
C                  G     B7
And hold me 'til I fall asleep

Pre-Chorus
       C         D           G          Em
I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most
         C          D           B
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well

Chorus
Em                   B
Dancing slowly in an empty room
C                       G        B7
Can the lonely take the place of you?
Em                    B
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
C                       G                    B7
Let you go and let the lonely in to take my heart again

Bridge
Em  D  G      C
Broken pieces of
  Em  D  G         Am  G 
A barely breathing story
Em     D    G         C
Where there once was love
Em   D      G    Am         B7
Now there's only me and the lonely

Chorus
Em                   B
Dancing slowly in an empty room
C                       G        B7
Can the lonely take the place of you?
Em                    B
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
C                      G                     B7
Let you go and let the lonely in to take my heart again

Coda

Beautiful...simply beautiful. I've finally found the perfect chords...and the perfect pitch...merci.
Just a suggestion for those who play this on the piano like i do, a B7 after the B just before the chorus sounds perfect....or maybe not? Try it,though. I liked the feel..
anyway~ me luv dis!
