"Love Will Tear Us Apart" as written by Ian Kevin Curtis, Peter Hook, Stephen Paul David Morris and Bernard Sumner....
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
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed
Every feeling run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives.

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

Do you cry out in your sleep,
All my failings expose?
Gets a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold.
Why is it something so good
Just can't function no more?

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

    General CommentI accidently stumbled upon this song. A great cover of the Joy Division classic. I'm normally partial to female vocalists, but Ian Crutis' voice originally captured the pure sadness of this song, this cover replaced the sadness with sheer beauty. Amazing.

    General CommentI love them they turn 80s hits into mello jazzy tunes. I cant wait tell someone comes and make their songs into DEATH METAL.

    General CommentThis potentially could have been a fantastic cover if not for the unclear lyrics in the verses - she doesn't completely sing the words, more like skims them.
