[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]

Em    B    C    G  B7

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!
