You can go to the east to find your, your inner hemisphere
You say we're under the same sky babe
Your bound to realize honey it's not that clear
I'm not your promised land oh no 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 giving it out
I'm lonely tonight I'm lonely tonight I'm lonely tonight, oh yeah

Well, the meanings changed for what it's worth it's just a senseless game
Well I should think of love but it's fear every time I hear
Honey your heartbeat strain it's not the fallen man, honey
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 giving it out
I'm lonely tonight I'm lonely tonight I'm lonely tonight, oh yeah

My blood is running dry my skin is, my skin is growing thin
For every time you find yourself you loose a little bit of me
Honey 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 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

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