Lyrics Edit

[Dan]
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

When you lived inside of me
There was nothing i could conceive
That you wouldn't do for me
Trouble seemed so far away
You changed that right away, baby
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

Love don't live here anymore
Just emptiness and memories
Of what we had before
You went away
Found another place to stay, another home
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

In the windmills of my eyes
Everyone can see the loneliness inside me
Why'd ya have to go away
Don't you know i miss you so and need your love
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore

You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore

[F. Stokes]
Love don't live here
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

[Dan]
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

[F. Stokes]
I say love don't live here
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

Daddy was a preacher,
Mama had the features of an angel
Born in Oklahoma to an aglo
Whose ango was pimpin' like a kango
Whhen they cut this backseat window
I do this for my kid, folk
Beside that hate and treat and seat
But god damn that then broke
Scribes for the king
And pleased with my pleasantries
Put the local peasantries
But though we live in hell
We can still dream heavenly
's got like a fellin'
Ain't no tellin' fella
And they told me I would shit
I had to show him better
What it's like a letter from my mistress
Who after my performance in prison's twelfth district
Got a broken English on a mesh
Put you were terrific
And your style was godly amazing
Sam was plain stainless
So in that truck she was savin'
And the no I kept and wept
On the petrol station steps,
Like the fuck who saw me?
For my bravery just applaud me
But love don't live
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

[Dan]
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore

[F. Stokes]
Love don't live here
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

[Dan]
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

[F. Stokes]
Love don't live here
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

[Dan]
Oh I'll see you in the future
When we're older and when we are full of stories to be told
Cross my heart
And hope to die
See you with your laughter lines
I'll see you there

You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore

[F. Stokes]
Love don't live here
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

[Dan]
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

[F. Stokes]
Love don't live here
And if you break my heart
Then blood gonna spill here

[Dan]
I'll see you in the future when we're older
And we are full of stories to be told
Cross my heart
And hope to die
I'll see you
With your laughter lines
