Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
12” version (June 1980)

[Chords]
A5     577xxx
Dsus4  xx0233
Dsus2  xx0230

* When playing A5, sometimes strum also the G string (5770xx).
* When playing A, you can alternate A and Asus2 (x02200) to add some variations.
* Novices can simplify the sequence "Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A" by playing "Em D Bm A".
  If you have problems with the Bm barre chord, play it xx0432. One of the idea of the punk
  movement was that anybody could play music. So play this song as you can, and don't be
  afraid to have a dirty sound !
* If you prefer a slower version, you can sing it in Adrian Borland's way:

  which is the more profound cover I know.

[Intro]
A5
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A

[Verse 1]
Em                      D Dsus4 D Dsus2
When routine bites hard
Bm             D   A
And ambitions are low
Em                        D Dsus4 D Dsus2
And resentment rides high
Bm            D      A
But emotions won't grow
Em                          D Dsus4 D Dsus2
And we're changing our ways,
Bm           D     A
Taking different roads

[Chorus]
     Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
Then love, love will  tear us   apart again
     Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
     love, love will  tear us   apart again

[Interlude]
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A

[Verse 2]
Em                         D Dsus4 D Dsus2
Why is the bedroom so cold
Bm              D    A
Turned away on your side?
Em                       D Dsus4 D Dsus2
Is my timing that flawed
Bm              D   A
Our respect run so dry?
Em                            D Dsus4 D Dsus2
Yet there's still this appeal
Bm                       D   A
That we've kept through our lives

[Chorus]
     Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
But  love, love will  tear us   apart again
     Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
     love, love will  tear us   apart again

[Interlude]
A5
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A

[Verse 3]
Em                           D Dsus4 D Dsus2
Do you cry out in your sleep
Bm              D  A
All my failings exposed?
Em                              D Dsus4 D Dsus2
And there's a taste in my mouth
Bm              D     A
As desperation takes hold
Em                         D Dsus4 D Dsus2
Yet that something so good
Bm                  D   A
Just can't function no more?

[Chorus]
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
But love, love will  tear us   apart again
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again

[Interlude]
A5
Em  D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2  Bm   D A

[Chorus]
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again
    Em    D    Dsus4 D   Dsus2  Bm   D A
    love, love will  tear us   apart again

[Outro]

D  Dsus4  D  Dsus2
