Goodbye Alice In Wonderland

Goodbye Alice In Wonderland
    by Jewel Kilcher


Standard Tuning Capo 2

These chords are all correct from what 
I can hear except for at the end of the chorus; Em???
It sounds alright strummed but through the verses she's picking like this:

   C *example*
e|-------0-----|
B|----------1--|
G|-------------|
D|---2----2----|
A|-3---3-------|
E|-------------|

Intro:  C   G   Bm   C
    C           G
Its four in the afternoon
         Bm              C
I'm on a flight leaving LA
C                G
Trying to think about my life
   Bm                          C
My youth scattered along the highway



Am             Em
Hotel rooms in headlights
G                         D
I've made a living with a song
       Em                 C
Just a guitar as my companion
        G                 D
Wanting desperately to be loved


Em  D               G
Fame is filled with spoiled children
Em        D         G    Em
They grow fat on fantasy
D                      G
I guess that's why I'm leaving
D
I crave reality


---vvv---Chorus
   G   C   D        G
So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
    C                D
Goodbye yellow brick road
G          C                  D            G
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
               Em        C
I did not find paradise
                           G
It was only a reflection
                  D
Of my lonely mind searching
                           Em???
For what was missing in my life




VERSE AND CHORUS 2 SAME CHORDS
------------vvvvv----------------
I'm embarassed to say
The rest is a rock and roll cliche
I hit the bottom when i reached the top
Never knew it was you
Who was breaking my heart
I thought you had to love me
But you did not

Yes, a heart can hallucinate
If its completely starved of love
Can even make monsters seem like
Angels from above

Forged my love like a weapon
Turned it against me like a knife
Broke my last heart string
But you opened up my eyes

So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
That was not love in your eyes
It was only a reflection
Of my lonely mind wanting
What was missing in my life
------------^^^^^----------------

BRIDGE:Em  D  G C Bm C D
Em
Dreaming is a good thing
         D
Cause it brings new things to life
G
Pretending is an ending
     C
That perpetuates a lie
Bm
Forgetting what you are
C                           D
Seeing for what you've been told
Em                        D
And growing up is not the answer to dreaming
    G                  C
Its being able to understand the difference between
    Bm                        C                     D
The ones you can hold and the ones that you've been sold




Em   D                 G          Em
Truth is stranger than fiction
        D                   G      Em
This is my chance to get it right
D            G
Life is much better
    D
Without all of your pretty lies


   G   C   D        G
So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
        C                      D
You can keep your yellow brick road
G          C                  D            G
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
                          Em     C
That was not love in your eyes

It was only a reflection
G                 D           C
Of my lonely mind wanting

It was only a reflection
G            D
Of my lonely mind wishing
                                       C        Em(upward strum)
That you were what was missing from my life
