Indigo Girls Land of Canaan Lyrics

Last updated: 09/28/2006 11:00:00 AM

Words and Music: Amy Ray

You can go to the East to find your inner hemisphere
You say we're under the same sky baby don't you realize honey it's not that
clear
I'm not your promised land, honey, you know that I'm not!
I'm not your promised one
I'm not the land of Canaan, sweetheart, waiting for you under the sun

I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now
I'm wanting your love and you're givin it out
I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight

Well the meaning has changed for what it's worth it's just a senseless game
I should think of love, but it's fear, everytime I hear honey your heartbeat
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, sweetheart, telling me you're not mine

I'm lonely tonight, I'm missing you now
I'm wanting your love and you're givin it out
I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight

Now my blood is running dry my skin is my skin is growing thin
Everytime 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 all to the end of the line
From inside this existence, sweetheart, time is not on my side

I'm lonely tonight, I'm missin you now
I'm wanting your love and you're givin it out
I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight, I'm lonely tonight

I'm not your promised land I'm not your promised one (I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your promised land I'm not your promised one (Honey I'm trying to tell
you that I'm lonely tonight)
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
