"Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover)" 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

Love, love will tear us apart again

Why is this bedroom so cold?
You 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

Love, love will tear it apart again
Love, love will tear it apart again

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

Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Oh love, love will tear us apart again

    General CommentHe really has made this his own by the awesome guitar and his voice is so well suited to this particular song. An awesome cover of one the alltime greats.

    General CommentJust in case someone wasn't aware of who made the original, this song was originally written by Joy Division.

    General Commentyeah i know that but surely if this is a website for commenting on the lyrical content rather than the sound of the song then shouldn't it be only in the joy division area so that a proper discussion in the context of the band that wrote it can take place...maybe i'm being really anal...i am aren't I...oh well..........
    anyways, amazing lyrics, yeah....

    General CommentYou dont need to have written the song for it to mean something in context thought. Jose may have chosen to cover this song for a particular reason which would not be discussed on the joy division page. Plus where does it say that only lyrical content can be discussed? in some songs the instruments add to the particular feel and meaning of the song.

    General CommentIts about a longer term relationship losing the chemistry. Its a biological fact that the chemistry between couples neutralises after 24 mths. Then you have to fight to get it back. Or you can give up. The loyal don't give up. Its hard when someone new and amasing comes along and you feel the chemistry you used to feel.

    Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives.

    Something so good can't function no more.

    Bullshit. You have to fight for it. Loyalty. Real love.

    Don't give in to the new love, don't let it tear you apart. It won't last either!

    General CommentI'm not sure just how relevant your comment was to the song, coldownie; but I really enjoyed it.

    Keep fighting! Love will pull you through. And if it doesn't do the trick anymore, eat more chocolate. It'll give you the same general feeling. :)
