INXS ~ Never Tear Us Apart




Never Tear Us Apart is a single (August 1988) from 
INXS' sixth studio album, Kick.



The music (written by Andrew Farriss) was given to Michael Hutchence 
who wrote the hauntingly beautiful lyrics for this sensuous ballad.

The original video was filmed in Prague, directed by Richard Lowenstein.

The song held on the UK charts for seven weeks, peaking at #24, 
while in the US it reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Never Tear Us Apart is thought of by many INXS fans as 
Michael Hutchence's anthem.  The song played in the background
 as his coffin was carried out of St. Andrews Cathedral after his death.

Another great musician
who left us way too soon






Never Tear Us Apart
Lyrics


Don't ask me

What you know is true

Don't have to tell you

I love your precious heart



I

I was standing

You were there

Two worlds collided
And they could never tear us apart

We could live

For a thousand years

But if I hurt you

I'd make wine from your tears



I told you

That we could fly

'Cause we all have wings

But some of us don't know why


I
I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never ever tear us apart
