By Goffin/Goldburg. From the other side of the She Cries Your Name
single.


[intro]:

| D | D | Bm | Bm | Em | Em | G | D | D |

[verse]:
     D             Bm              G
if I ever feel the light again    shining down on me
A                                  G                 D
I dont have to tell you        how welcome it would be
           Bm                         G
I felt the light before        but I let it slip away
    A                               G                  D
and I just keep on believing   that itll come back someday


[chorus]:
              G                           D
its not the spotlight        its not the candlelight
               G                 A                  D
its not the streetlights     of some old street of dreams
             G                             D
it aint the moon light       not even the sunlight
      G               A
but I seen it shining in your eyes
    G         A      D
and you know what I mean
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/beth_orton/its_not_the_spotlight_crd.html ]
     D             Bm                  G
sometimes I try to tell myself    the light was never real
        A                             G                D
just a fantasy that used to be    the way I used to feel
    D               Bm                  G
but you and I know better         even though its been so long
             A                                  G
now if your memory really serves you well youll never tell me no
  D
wrong


              G                           D
its not the spotlight        its not the candlelight
               G                 A                  D
its not the streetlights     of some old street of dreams
             G                             D
it aint the moon light       not even the sunlight
      G               A
but I seen it shining in your eyes
    G         A      D
and you know what I mean


[repeat intro, but lose the D in the last bar]


         D           [no Bm]           G
so if I ever feel the light again    shining down on me
A                                  G                 D
I wont have to tell you        how welcome it would be
           Bm                         G
I felt the light before        but I let it slip away
    A                                G                  D
and I just live for believing   that itll come back someday

              G                           D
its not the spotlight        its not the candlelight
               G                 A                  D
its not the streetlights     of some old street of dreams
             G                             D
it aint the moon light       not even the sunlight
      G               A
but I seen it shining in your eyes
    G         A      D
and you know what I mean

           G              A
oh yeah I seen it shining in your eyes
    G         A      D
and you know what I mean

most of the picking is
 ------*---*--|
 -------*---*-|
 --------*----|
 ---*---------|
 --*----------|
 -*-----------|

in the D majors, there's plenty of this little hammer-on going on
 -----0h2-------|
 ---3----3--3---|
 --2------2--3--|
 -0-------------|


G is 355433, everything else is open (except maybe in the intro where Bm
and Em are played at the 7th fret. maybe)
