  • Lyrics
  • In the absence of your love
    And in the absence of human touch
    I have decided
    I'm throwing my arms around, around Paris
    Because only stone and steel accept my love

    In the absence of your smiling face
    I travel all over the place
    And I have decided
    I'm throwing my arms around, around Paris
    Because only stone and steel accept my love
    I'm throwing my arms around, around Paris
    Because only stone and steel accept my love

    I'm throwing my arms around Paris
    Because nobody wants my love
    Nobody wants my love
    Nobody needs my love
    Nobody wants my love

    Yes, you made yourself plain
    Yes, you made yourself very plainWriter/s: STEVEN MORRISSEY, MARTIN JAMES BOORER
