You and me
Go together like carrots and peas
We should be a happy family
Or a traveling travesty, at least

And love
Will fuck us up
Love will fuck us up

Breathe in deep
Breathe as deeply as you can breathe
Breathe deep til you're drunk will glee
Breathe deep til you're drunk with glee

And love
Will fuck us up
Love will fuck us up

    General CommentI love this song. I always think of it as meaning that two people get along so perfectly but when you bring a title like love into things it ruins everything.

    General CommentI like the title/chorus better than anything else. It's all about the multiple uses for fuck.

    General CommentTo me this is like the anthem for every pair of fuck buddies. People that are great for each other, physically. Never meant to get closer than just embracing sex because love will fuck things up.

    General CommentThe title is a reference to Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart."

    General CommentI feel like he means "fuck us up" like "get us drunk/high"

    I also feel like he's talking about how neither of them will ever be the same again after falling in love.
