   *** SONG: Alone    Author: Lisa Loeb and Nine Stories ***
             *** Album: Tails off of Geffen Records  ***
           *** Transcriber: Adam Rogoyski ***

 Lisa Loeb and Nine Stories "Alone"  on the album Tails(love that cat).

 Here is Lisa's opening acoustic riff played again and again in the song.

   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1   2  & and so on

   This is the Chorus and most of the song, Electric Guitar is distorted
   with like amp overdrive(like when you crank the little travel amp up too
   far) and the acoustic plays the same thing as well.  this repeats like
   lots and lots of times throughout the song

   1   2 + 3  + 4   1   2 + 3  + 4 +

   At one point it breaks off and does this verse, Same electric and acoustic
   playing the same thing.
[ Tab from: ]
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3   4 +

  That's the Whole song.  There is also another guitar playing little added
  little things at beat 4 of the main chorus riff(the second one i tabbed).
  they sound like this:

I want to be by myself, sometimes I do.
I don't want to be left behind, but sometimes I'm left by you.

I pressed my tongue to the top of my mouth
'cause my jaw, it was tired with the thinking.
I stretched my toes to the end of the couch,
'cause my back, it was aching from sleeping.

so what is this weather, and what is this darkness,
and why do I feel so alone?
When will it snow, it's been raining for hours,
and why do I fell so alone?

And when I'm left at home, when you're with someone else I'm all alone.

You do not cheat me of my childhood.
You bring me blankets for the walls of my forts.
There is no anger with the eyebrows raised.
When you do the fantastic I am amazed.

So what is this weather, and what is this darkness,
and why do I feel so alone?
When will it snow, it's been raining for hours,
and why do I feel so alone?

You were leaving some bar, and you're coming downtown,
You're not ripping out stitches, but you want me around.
Just to call you my love, just to call you my love.

You are the treasure custodian cleaning the moon for me.
Scouring the sky so the starts would shine bright.
You stand straight-faced, and tip-toed on top of a ladder,
And I wait.

And when I'm left at home, I'm all alone,
but I'd rather be alone with you.

So what is this weather, and what is this darkness,
and why do I fell so alone?
When will it snow, it's been raining for hours,
and why do I fell so alone?
Why do I fell so alone?

   I am:             Adam Rogoyski (Temperance/SirStupid)
