Listen to Love Will Tear Us Apart by Joy Division

Part again
Part again
Part again
Part again

Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
When our hearts are in chains
Love will tear us apart again
When we’re lost in a maze
With no way to escape
The end claims no start
Makes no sense to remain
When light in our eyes lies exempt in the shade
Love will tear us apart again
.
First impressions
They fade
Our perceptions then change
What starts as affection
Departs to disdain
Best intentions are questioned
Regarded as vain
With no beating heart left to maintain
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
When our vacant eyes glaze
Love will tear us apart again
When our dreams start to fade
With no means for reawakening
Worst fears arise
For it appears we have been taken in
When something easy feels akin to labouring
Love will tear us apart again
.
Guilt and shame
Play their parts
Taking aim at our marks
We campaign to make plain
Adulation has passed
In the name of cancellation
We break down communication lines
Become lost in translation
Unaware where inspiration lies
Minds in isolation
Hearts declaring their migration rights
One wild accusation placed from breaking ties
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
When our hearts are in chains
Love will tear us apart again
When we’re lost in a maze
With no way to escape
The end claims no start
Makes no sense to remain
When light in our eyes lies exempt in the shade
Love will tear us apart again
.
Some treat love as a game
Others feel pained to play
Staging plays to lay claim
On unstable terrain
Search for weakness
And drain veins in sequence
To gain greater stake
Than their depreciated equals
.
Deceitful eyes
Tell needful lies
Unheedful of the light that dies
May never be revitalized
With every feeling itemized
Even though they might survive the title fight
Lack of love is blackened sludge to vital signs
Time flies on blind side
All lifelines denied us
Little to prize
Beneficial to guide us
Love really need not conquer and divide us
For it’s simple what a single blush provides us
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
When our hearts are in chains
(When our hearts are in chains)
Love will tear us apart again
(Love will tear us apart again)
When our hearts are in chains
(When our hearts are in chains)
Love will tear us apart again
(Love will tear us apart again)
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
Love
Love will tear us apart again
.
When the trains are delayed
And our veins feel near drained
Love need never tear us apart again
When our hearts pride misplaced
Find a way to break their chains
Love need never tear us apart again
When wings long impinged
Sing their sweet serenade
Love need never tear us apart again
First impressions may fade
But should the second we remain
Love need never tear us apart again
Love need never tear us apart again
Love need never tear us apart again
.

Path to gain
(Path to gain)
Path to gain
(Path to gain)
Path to gain
(Path to gain)

    This is a very relatable experience which like this beautiful piece, has now turned from negative to positive. Forgiven and loved.
