Clapton, Eric - Tearing Us Apart Lyrics

You know the sun is shining; it's raining in my heart.
I don't know what to do since we've been apart.
Why don't you tell me, babe, what is going on?
You know I love you darling, don't want to be alone.

They're tearing us apart,
They're breaking up my heart.
I knew it from the start:
Your friends are tearing us apart.

You know I can't go on, feeling this old way.
You know my heart is burning, it's burning everyday.
You know I love you, baby, no one else will do.
Why don't you reconsider, do what I want you to?

[Chorus 2x]

Your friends are tearing us apart,
Tearing us apart.

    How can you get better than this? Phil Collins on drums, Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler on guitar, and Tina Turner singing.

    This is what rock n roll is. Today's stuff just sucks and is so phony. Clapton is God, Tina is the Goddess!

    What a great bunch: Tina Turner is the first female vocalist I've ever seen to get Eric Clapton moving and jamming like this! Who can just stand there playing with T. T. next to you? She had the entire band in time with her!

    great song. studio version is better though. anyone know if this was ever released on a Clapton or turner album or was it just a single? heard this the other day on the radio and it was the first time I've heard it since it came out. I thought I had all of Clapton's greatest hits on cd or downloaded but obviously not.


    Corde there are 7 inch singles of this performance:
    And the vidoe is on the Prince Trust VHS and DVD:

    Corde Smith

    I also found it on Clapton's august album. one of the few albums by him that I never owned. I definitely need to get it. thanks for the info. c.s.

    Ivory Dream

    Classic! Thank you for posting this. :)

  55. BadNewsBrown23

    Its John Illsley from Dire Straits as ''kakpadshiyangel'' correctly wrote.
    Bryan Adams is not in this song,i just mentioned him as part of the entire concert.
    There is also Howard Jones on keybords right behind.

  56. kakpadshiyangel

    We have
    Drum: Phil Collins, Ray Cooper (+ congas)
    Bass: John Illsley
    Keyboard: Elton John
    Guitar: Midge Ure, Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, Bryan Adams (a bit hidden)
