"Ten Storey Love Song" is a The Stone Roses single released in March 1995. It was written by guitarist John Squire.

It reached number 11 and spent three weeks in the UK Singles Chart. The B-sides "Moses" and "Ride On" were the last new songs released by the group.

A music video, directed by Sophie Muller, accompanied the single but the video was shot without the drummer, Reni, who did not turn up. Only three members of the band (Squire, Ian Brown and Mani) appear in the video although an unidentified man wearing a mask of Reni's face appears several times. Ian Brown did not turn up for the first day of the video shoot, this is reflected in the video when John Squire and Mani are watching footage of Ian Brown and Reni on a TV screen and look at their watches.

The song is on the Roses' second album, Second Coming. It is the third song, fading into "Daybreak".

In 2009 the British writer Richard Milward named his second novel after this song.
