Love Will Tear Us Apart
June Tabor & Oysterband Lyrics


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

Why is the bedroom so cold turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed has respect run 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

Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, Will tear us apart
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 don't function no more

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

I love the original by Joy Division, so I had my reservations when this version was recommended to me by someone very special. Wow. I'm blown away! Utterly sublime. I love, love, love it! :-)

This song gains such pathos when sung by people in late middle age.

BTW, just from this video, June Tabor needs to be cast somewhere in Game of Thrones,.

She would be killed anyway. :-)

The original was for me in my 20s. This...this is for me in my 50s. It’s so, so very different.

Even though I'd heard the original a million times I never really felt the lyrics until I heard this version. Some songs just sound better slower in my opinion. The original is still amazing though.

This is a song that no one should cover, because the original was perfect... and almost ever cover is boring... but this... this is the real deal

Thank goodness they didn't take notice of you - this is a wonderful cover.

The difference is that most people sing the words, but June Tabour understands them, and adds more.

Alison Hayward

one of the best cover versions ever

Jill Eckersley

This is the saddest song I have ever heard.
