TITLE. LYRICS

Peel Session version

Love will tear us apart

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 will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold?
You've turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?
Have our feelings run dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives
But love will tear us apart again

You cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed
There's a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Just that something so good
Just can't function no more
When love will tear us apart again
