Land Of Canaan
Indigo Girls Lyrics


You can go to the East to find your
Your inner hemisphere
You say we're under the same sky, babe
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, oh sweetheart
Waitin' for you under the sun

I'm lonely tonight
I'm missin' you now
I'm wantin' your love
And you're givin' it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight, ooh hoo, yeah

Well, the meaning's changed
For what it's worth
It's just a senseless game (oh yeah)
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, you know that it's not
It's not the call of time
It's just the London skyline, sweetheart
Tellin' me you're not mine

I'm lonely tonight
I'm missin' you now
I'm wantin' your love
And you're givin' it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight, ooh hoo

Yeah
My blood is runnin' dry
My skin is, my skin is growin' thin
Oh, yeah, for every time you find yourself
You lose a little of me, honey, from within
It's just a ragin' cycle
Why can't we bring it all to the end of the line?
Shout it, baby
From inside this existence, no sweetheart
Time is not on my side

I'm lonely tonight
I'm missin' you now
I'm wantin' your love
And you're givin' it out
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight
I'm lonely tonight, hoo hoo

I'm not your promised land (I'm lonely tonight)
I'm not your promised one (honey I'm tryin' 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) oh sweetheart
I'm not the land of Canaan, sweetheart
Waitin' for you under the sun

I'm lonely tonight

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
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
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
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

Indigo Girls - Indigo Girls (1989) is still on of my top favorite albums of all time! Thank you Amy Ray and Emily Saliers for the muse!

Charla Chamberlain

30+ years of incredible songwriting and sing-a-long concerts. Their music is relevant, heart felt, deeply fierce. Thank you for re-inventing yourselves & bringing the world the gift of your musical talent.

Deborah Meyer

This is one of the most incredible live performances I have seen. Freakin' pure talent!

Bryan Harmon

I was there. I was amazed by their beautiful voices and harmonies!

Laurie Pahdopony

Love me some Indigo Girls! Amy and Emily are my all time faves. Can't get enough. Awesome performance! I wish they were still as lively in concert today as they were when this video was taken. They are much more subdued - I've seen them on stage many times and they are perfection!

God this is an incredible song.

Jim Herron

I need to see these artists again - it's been about 20 years and I love them so - still listen as much as I did when the first album came out.

FemWillow

One of their best songs and best performances. Indigo Girls are AMAZING!
