FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ INXS (1991)

INXS (a phonetic play on “in excess”) were an Australian rock band, formed as The Farriss Brothers in 1977 in Sydney, New South Wales.

INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence wrote the lyrics, which describe an instant connection between two people who form a bond that will last forever. Hutchence had many passionate relationships in his lifetime, many with celebrities like Kylie Minogue and Helena Christensen, but he was never married. He did have a daughter in 1996 with Paula Yates.

Michael Hutchence died in 1997 at 37. At his funeral service, his coffin was carried out of St. Andrews Cathedral by the remaining members of INXS and his younger brother Rhett as “Never Tear Us Apart” played in the background.

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

I (Don’t ask me)
I was standing (You know it’s true)
Mm, you were there (Worlds collided)
Two worlds collided (We’re shining through)
And they could never tear us apart

You (Don’t ask me)
You were standing (You know it’s true)
I was there (Worlds collided)
Two worlds collided (We’re shining through)
And they could never tear us apart

I-I-I
I was standing
You were there
