Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division – Lyrics with Chords

[Intro]
Dsus4
 
A Em D Dsus4 D Dmaj9 Bm A (x2)
 
[Verse 1]
     Em                  D Dsus4 D Dmaj9
When routine bites hard
      Bm                 A
And ambitions are low
      Em                 Dsus4
And resentment rides high
     Bm                  A
But emotions won't grow
          Em                 Dsus4
And we're changing our ways
       Bm                A
Taking different roads
 
[Chorus]
     Em    D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
Then love, love will  tear us   apart again
Em    D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A        Em D Dsus4 D Dmaj9 Bm A
Love, love will  tear us   apart again
 
[Verse 2]
           Em               Dsus4
Why is the bedroom so cold
        Bm          A
Turned away on your side
      Em                    Dsus4
Is my timing that flawed
       Bm          A
Our respect run so dry
            Em                Dsus4
Yet there's still this appeal
           Bm               A
That we've kept through our lives
 
[Chorus]
    Em    D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
And love, love will  tear us   apart again
Em    D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
Love, love will  tear us   apart again

A  A  A  A  A  A  A  A
 
A Em D Dsus4 D Dmaj9 Bm A (x2)
 
[Verse 3]
           Em                Dsus4
Do you cry out in your sleep
       Bm                 A
All my failings exposed
      Em                  Dsus4
Get a taste in my mouth
        Bm           A
As desperation takes hold
      Em                  Dsus4
Is it something so good
           Bm          A
Just can't function no more
 
[Outro]
Em    D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
When love, love will tear us apart again
D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
Love, love will tear us apart again
D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
Love, love will tear us apart again
D    Dsus4 D    Dmaj9 Bm    A
Love, love will tear us apart again
