Love Will Tear Us Apart Lyrics - Joy Division

Review The Song (12)

When routine bites hard,
And ambitions are low,
And resentment rides high,
But emotions won't grow,
And we're changing our ways,
Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Why is the bedroom so cold?
You've turned away on your side.
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect runs so dry.
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives.

But love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

You cry out in your sleep,
All my failings exposed.
And there's a taste in my mouth,
As desperation takes hold.
Just that something so good
Just can't function no more.

But love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

The end of my previous relationship. | Reviewer: Hugo | 4/27/13

This lyrics say what happened in my life a few months ago.
When routine bites hard.
Changing our ways,
Taking different roads.
I loved her so much.
I have failed, making you love me, Bina I'll love you Foreever.

There is no more beautiful pop song. Heart wrenching, aching and certain, the music, lyrics and voice combine to make a masterpiece, like the most wonderful recipe you've ever sampled. Please listen again and feel how profound it is.

Honestly this song is so powerful! The lyrics are very strong and deep! I can totally relate to this song since I'm going threw a divorce...every single line in this song is absolutely true in how love ends! I think everything in this song is perfectly put together perfect beat perfect voice! This is and will always be my favorite song! I even got "Love will tear us apart" tattooed on my wrist!

Love will Tear us Apart | Reviewer: Gilly | 7/9/10

This was released after Ian had died. He wrote it in late 79 and recorded it in March 1980. It was due for release on 24th May 1980, at which time Joy Division would have been in the middle of their first U.S tour, but sadly Ian died on the 19th May.

The lyrics in the song explain the struggle with his marriage at this time, and of the ongoing affair with Annika Horogue, a Belgian woman who Ian met on a tour of Europe.

And the resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow

These lines mean that they are hating each other and their emotions are at a level that will only deteriorate.

If you read the rest, they are all about the same topic.

Great song, i prefer "She's lost control"
But fantastic nevertheless.

This was Ians response to the cheesy song by Captain n Tenille called love will keep us will tear us apart is a truly hauntingly beautiful masterpiece by a truly tortured soul. God bless you Ian Curtis.

This song is so amazing. The lyrics are so...filled with desperation, and it just touches you somehow. The Remakes are okay, But Ian Curtis' Voice just brings you into the song. I Love Joy Division. Its a shame that Ian is no longer with us. He was such a special guy.

If I had to pick my favorite song of all time, this would be it. The words to this song can compare to so many relationships I've dealt in my life.

Yeah, baby | Reviewer: Cobalt | 6/17/07

Ian Curtis' voice = amazing. Just like the bassline.

Hail Joy Division.
