The Only Ones - "Flaming Torch"
Album: Even Serpents Shine

  It's a tragedy that this band's songs aren't tabbed anywhere. They're
brilliant and really not that difficult to work out or play, even for me, a
total amateur. So I've taken on the task of posting some of their songs'
chords for your rockin' pleasure, and hopefully others will take the cue and
work out some more of their songs and more detailed tabs. Please point out
corrections as needed, since they may not be perfect. Long live The Only Ones!

"Flaming Torch"

(I'm not sure how the band plays it, but I use barre chords or power chords
and it sounds fine along with the recording.)

D          A
Now I know what you want
Bm                      G
But I don't know how to give it
D                  A               G
I think our life together has been cursed
        Em                      A
I don't know which one of us is worse
Em                G                   A
Is it the one who lies or the one who hurts

D             G
It's a crime, it's a crime
D                       A                  D
I'm always in the wrong place in the wrong time

D         A
You say I should be there
Bm                             G
You don't tell me where you're living
D                A             G
It serves as ammunition for my thirst
Em                     A
I practice spiritual research
Em                G                A
Among the ancient ruins covered in dirt

D             G
It's my work, it's my work
D                       A                  D
I'm always in the wrong place in the wrong term

A
True love is your guiding light
     G              D
It's like a flaming torch
A
You can see magic in the night
       B                  A
As the flames start to distort

D          A
I can hear bells again
Bm                         G
I hope they never stop 'em ringing
D              A              G
They remind me of the distant past
        Em                        A
Looking through a window, stained-glass
Em                  G                      A
When the pledge was made and the spell was cast

D             G
It's a crime, it's a crime
D                       A                  D
I'm always in the wrong place at the wrong time
