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.



Tuning of guitar:
Lower both your E strings to D, this way
D
A 
D 
G 
B 
D

 
Verse:


                   Em(7)             Em                D                 Bm              A
  D|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0----|-------------|----------------|--------------|----------------|------------|

     (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


    Em                D               Bm              A
  D|----------------|---------------|----------------|------------|

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|-----------------|--------------|----------------|------------|

  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:


   D/Em                D                    Bm(Em7/d)              A

    Love........     love will tear us a-  part        again
