"Love Is Dead" as written by and Miles/maurice Gregory....
This is the hardest part
When you feel like a fake
All that you have has become unreal
Collapsing and aching

All I want, all I want is right here
But love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)

I am all that you think of me
When you're beside her, inside her
It must be so hard for you to deny it and hide it

All I want, all I want is right here
But love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)

Love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
(Love is dead, love is gone, love don't live here anymore)
And love don't live here anymore

    General Commentin a video interview, she explained that she wrote this about a man she was in love with but he didnt love her back. so at the time, she was heartbroken and wrote this. and after further listen, she found more meaning in the song. as in, she realized it also means the world is aching for love and drenched with hate.
    i love this song.
    it's so powerful

    General CommentThis song is seriously beautiful
    Aside from the 'I know that you think of me when you're
    beside her
    inside her
    It must be so hard for you to
    deny it
    and hide it' part, I can relate to this song because I honestly can say I can't feel love towards anyone anymore.
    It just feels like such a lie.

    General CommentI really enjoy this song. She has an amazing voice, that reminds me of Bjork. The video is so great also. If you have not viewed it, I suggest searching it. To me, this song is quite obvious, I guess. I suppose someone was in a relationship, and the other person left them for someone else. It is a beautiful song.

    General CommentI can't remember where I read it, but Kerli said that this was her favourite song that she'd written - I can see why. :)

    General CommentI honestly don't think it's a coincidence that she sounds like Bjork in her "All Is Full Of Love", especially in the chorus when she says "Love don't live here anymore" and near the end of the song when she cries out. In her interview she said that Bjork is her all-time favorite artist for her uniqueness and "balls". Therefore, Kerli's "Love Is Dead" could possibly be her juxtaposition of or rebutal to Bjork's "All Is Full Of Love". Bjork's version is happy-go-lucky and the hope in her voice builds and climaxes towards the end, reaching a new high. Meanwhile Kerli's version is broken-down and the heartache in her voice builds on itself before collasping, reaching a new low.

    Just throwing this out there.

    My OpinionThis song is just amazing. I love how her voice seems to change toward the end of the song.

    My InterpretationI can really relate to this song;;
    After seeing so many people I love get hurt from relationships, I have learned that love really IS dead.
    It might as well be, because most of the time you get nothing out of it.

    I love this song because it just screams that.
