4th fret
Tonight I Dance Alone
by Sonata Arctica

Tabbed by George Frank

Bonus track from "Stones Grow Her Name".
This is not 100% correct, but should be a good guide for further corrections.

Capo 4 for the same key as the recording.


Am G F Fsus2 F C  G
F  C  Dm  E Am

Am            G                       F    Fsus2 
Sometimes we find things we're not looking for
       Fsus2      C        G
and we lose the sense of reason
Am            G                F     Fsus2 
Sometimes we lose what we are caring for
         Fsus2      C      G
and then face the day without them

    F    C   Dm   E  Am
My life, my home, my you

Am            G               F      Fsus2
Sometimes we fail to say how hurt we are
         Fsus2    C           G
When the word we fear speaks treason
Am          G                 F    Fsus2
Don´t wanna be there when my Cupid dies 
       Fsus2    C        G
from a wound by his own arrow

            F    C  Dm   E  Am
Here's to life, my home, my you...

 C    F                          G
    I raise a glass 'n drown my sorrow
     E             Am  C  F
    when I´m on my own
    I dry my eyes on a shoulder 
    E                 Am  C  F
    but it´s not my own    
              G            E                 Am   C
    I cannot hold you, my tears are made of stone
       F                G               E             F  C  Dm  E  Am 
    I feel a tap on my shoulder, but tonight I dance alone..

Like your other tab, it's on the right road =) This is oddly enough another situation I'd rather just play a half step up in open Standard tuning though. And the chords would be Dm C Bb Bbsus2 Bb F C, Bb F Gm A Dm (I'm not 100% sold on that Gm though- the one you called Dm)

I think it sounds better if you transpose it +2 (on here, so the chords are: Bm A G Gsus2 D Em and F# ) & play w/ a capo on the 2nd fret.
