-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning: Standard

Woo! my first ever tab! any problems, make a comment. just dont be a dick and go "wrong, 
wrong, this is rubbish" without even making a suggestion for improvement.

This great song was written by Joy Division, and was only performed by them once before 
suicide of Ian Curtis. It was released in 1981 by the remaining members of Joy Division, 
formed New Order.

Ok, so first theres the bass intro which is just

Chorus and Riff 1 one more time, then end on a c major chord

Lyrics-

This is why events unnerve me,
They find it all, a different story,
Notice whom for wheels are turning,
Turn again and turn towards this time,
All she ask's the strength to hold me,
Then again the same old story,
World will travel, oh so quickly,
Travel first and lean towards this time.

Oh, I'll break them down, no mercy shown,
Heaven knows, it's got to be this time,
Watching her, these things she said,
The times she cried,
Too frail to wake this time.

Oh I'll break them down, no mercy shown
Heaven knows, it's got to be this time,
Avenues all lined with trees,
Picture me and then you start watching,
Watching forever, forever,
Watching love grow, forever,
Letting me know, forever.
