The Weird Magic of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by JOY DIVISION…

Weird, really weird. My father (84) was battling cancer for eight months now and LOVE
WILL TEAR US APART
by JOY DIVISION was spinning several times in my troubled
head during that difficult period as the song I would dedicate to him if he ever would lose
his proud struggle against that awful disease. Last Thursday morning I got the bad news.
I jumped into my car and rushed towards the hospital. While driving, only a few minutes
later, Love Will Tear Us Apart was played on the radio. It never sounded so intense, so
real. And next Tuesday I will see original Joy Division bass player PETER HOOK and
his band THE LIGHT performing at a festival in Belgium. He also plays this timeless
rough diamond. Weird magic. Forever now.

For you, dad. You really deserve a long rest, big bear.
We will take care of mom now…

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, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold?
You’ve turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed?
Our respect runs so dry
Yet there’s still this appeal
That we’ve kept through our lives

But love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

You cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed
And there’s a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Just that something so good just can’t function no more

But love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
