Ok, there are two ways she does this song.... One is the album version and the other she plays in a video acoustically with a capo on the 7 th fret....

If I play the album version of the song it can be played without a capo... Of course it can be transcribed to have a capo placed on the 7th fret ... But the chords she uses playing without a capo and doing the album version are the following:

WITHOUT CAPO and ALBUM VERSION
F#, Bb, Ebm, B, Bbm, Db, .....

I can do the song this way... And then perhaps transpose it as well to using a capo on the 7 th fret

            I'VE BEEN ALONE TOO LONG
                     SOKO

Ebm                         
Thought I saw your face 
       F#
At the end of the alley
It was dark but somewhat pretty
Just like everything I see
       B
Except you were there glowing
Your body was floating 
          Ebm
Off the ground

        F#
Thought I'd come running
Try to catch you while I can
        Bb
But I never seen such beauty 
And I stood there paralyzed


    B
I swear I saw an angel
But I was too weak to come closer
Blinded by its glow and 
Before I knew 
         Ebm
It faded out

     B                        F#
And I'm still looking for my father
                          B
So I cannot have a lover now
           F#
I'm still looking for my father
                          B
So I cannot have a lover now


Db          F#
I'm still looking for my father
                          B
So I cannot have a lover now

           F#              B           
I'm still looking for my father
       F#                 B
So I cannot have a lover now


INSTRUMENTAL: Ebm F# Bbm B Ebm


    F#         Bbm
So come to me angel
       F#
and I swear I'll make a move
     Bb
It's way too dark out here
      Bbm        Bb
And I need your glow to glow
   F#                Bbm
I need your glow to glow


    B
So get out of here darkness
And I'll make room for the light time
Make room for the light
            F#
Cause I've been alone too long
I've been alone too long 
Ebm  B
Too long


Db   F#
I've been along too long
I've been alone too long 
     B
Too long


Db   F#
I've been along too long
I've been alone too long 
     B
Too long, too long, too long
I've been along too long
     Ebm
Too long


INSTRUMENTAL: Ebm F# Bb B Ebm 


    F#         B
So come to me angel
   F#
I heard it's bright out there
      Bbm
Just don't know how to get there
         F#   B       Ebm
But I'm only here to learn
    F#    B       Ebm
I'm only here to learn
   F#        Db    F#  Db B F#
So be my precious guy.

OK.. I FIGURED IT OUT....WHEN SHE PLAYS THE SONG WITH CAPO ON THE 7TH FRET SHE IS DOING IT IN ANOTHER KEY AND NOT IN THE SAME KEY AS SHE DOES ON THE ALBUM VERSION..... SO IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THE ACOUSTIC VERSION SHE IS PLAYING THEN DO THE FOLLOWING... TAKE YOUR POSTED SONG, PLACE A CAPO ON THE 7TH FRET, THEN USE THE FOLLOWING CHORDS IN PLACE OF THE ONES ABOVE:
