B     E     A    D
There is no love inside of me
B E            A        D
I gave it to a thousand girls
B  E            A           D
We built towers of saddened ivory
G              F#     G              A
In our English towns, in our english towns

B   E         A          D
The dogs they try to possess us
B     E          A         D
I can hear their anguished cries
B    E            A           D
They built towers of saddened ivory
G      F#             G              A
In our English towns, in our english towns


E     B         D          A     - A
I can see their astonished eyes
E        B       D   A     - A
Look the same in any size
E         B           D       A    - A
And their secrets are all the same
E       B        D       A   - A
Seeking pleasure seeking fame


F       G             A
No love in a thousand girls

No love in a thousand girls
