There are two riffs, #1 corresponds to Ian's vocals.
                     #2 corresponds to the "background" (dunno the English word)

You'll have to figure out the rhythm for yourselves, the best source to aid is
 imo the 2nd JD Peel Session.

When playing alone, switch from one riff to another (assuming that you are not
 capable of playing two guitars simultaneously :)

Lyrics/Chords (from memory, so watch out for mistakes):

Dm                       C Csus4 C Cmaj9
When routine bites hard
Am [Dm7-]              G
And ambitions are low
Dm                        C Csus4 C Cmaj9
And resentment rides high
Am [Dm7-]                G
But emotions won't grow
Dm                          C Csus4 C Cmaj9
And we're changing our ways
Am [Dm7-]              G
Taking different roads
Dm    C    Csus4 C    Cmaj9 Am    G
Love, love will  tear us    apart again

Why is this bedroom so cold?
You turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?
Am I feeling surprised? [in other versions: our respect runs so dry]
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear it apart again

You cry out in your sleep
All my feelings exposed
And there's a taste in my mouth
As despiration takes hold
Yet, that somehing's so good
Just can't function no more, when
Love, love will tear us apart again

     o o
