Joy Division - Love Wil tear us apart

by Reafx, 2005.

After fiddeling around with my newly tuned 12-string (I hate tuning it!), I came up with
this playable tabs structure to this classic Joy Division track. The rhythm is 2/4 (I
think) so play it freely.  This version also includes some of the great bass riffs, when
playing the guitar. Sounds best when played on a 12-string guitar,
though.

Lower both your E strings to D, this way

     (Guitar start)             1.When routine bites   hard  and am-   bitions are       low
                                2.Why is this bedroom so cold? You turned away on your   side
                                3.You cry out in your sleep     All my   feelings      exposed

1.  And resentment rides high  But e-    motions won't   grow
2.Is my timing that flawed?   our    respect runs    so  dry
3.And there's a taste in my mouth As despiration takes   hold
  
   Em                 D              Bm              A

  D|-2-2-2--2-2-2----|-0--0--0-----0|----------------|------------|

 1.And we're changing our ways  Taking   different      roads
 2.Yet there's still this appealThat we've kept through our lives
 3.Yet, that somehing's so good Just can't function no    more,    when

[Chorus]

this is pretty darn good, but i dont have a 12-string (yet) and you forgot about the intro.
