The song is in 4/4 and the tempo is played somewhat freely.

Arpeggio chords played by Tom on the piano.

A-----E(aug)------A------E(aug)

Verse 1:
A              E(aug)
Nobody,        Nobody,
A
Will ever love you,
E(aug)
The way I could love you,
A              A7/G           F#m
Cause Nobody,  Nobody is that strong,
F#m     F(aug)
Love is bitter sweet,
A/E        A(flat 5th)/Eb
And life's treasures deep
B7
But no one can keep 
E                  E(aug)
A love that's gone wrong

Nobody,        Nobody,

Will love you the way that I could,
A               A7/G          F#m
Cause Nobody's, Nobody's that strong,
E(aug)              A
Cause Nobody's that strong.

Verse 2:
A              E(aug)
Nobody,        Nobody,

Cause Nobody is that strong

You've had many lovers,

You've had many others,

But they'll only just break

Your poor heart in two,
