Is this is the Adrian May song ?
If so I might be able to do a transcription if I can find the tape and no-one beats me to it.

Is this it ?

I AM NO GOOD AT LOVE

{intro}

You said you wanted me to stay,
Still hoping for a better day.
But as I turned you heard me say,
I am no good at love.

Still with my heart I made so free,
Expected love, accordingly,
But now I know that could not be.
I am no good at love.

I am no good, I'm too intense,
To turn my passion into sense.
But never proud enough too be,
Like those who take love casually.
I am no good at love.

There's different kinds of loneliness,
The kind you make yourself's the best.
I know because I've tried the rest.
I am no good at love.

{instrumental break}

And when self-pity makes me pray,
For all the love we threw away.
Armed with sweet solitude I say,
I am no good at love.

{instrumental break}

Transcribed from:
Hearts and Flyovers.
Adrian May

I have to admit this is one of my favorite sad/romantic songs.

Yes - that looks like the same version that's on June Tabor's latest album Aleyn. It's an excellent CD - her voice keeps getting better. The booklet that came with the CD includes the lyrics to all the songs.

I wonder if this song was inspired by Noël Coward's poem of the same name, from Not Yet the Dodo and Other Verses? Though Coward's poem leavens the darkness with humour.

IMHO Tabor, as a singer, is quite without peer amongst women.
