"Love Don't Live Here Anymore" as written by and Miles Gregory....
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

You're the windmills of my eyes
Everyone can see the loneliness inside me
Why'd ya have to go away (away)
Don't you know I miss you so and need your love

You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore 
(Love don't live here anymore)
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore

You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore 
Live here anymore
Love don't live here anymore 
Love don't live here anymore 
No no don't, don't live live here anymore

You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore 
No it don't live here anymore
Love, don't, live here (love don't live here anymore )
Anymore
It don't live here anymore

    General CommentDude, I am shocked no one commente. This song was probably her best from the beginning. The anger and betryal she sings with is so apparent.

    How many times have we found the person we thought was the "one" only to break up and then feel as if our entire world was crashed. I always envision this as one of those times when somone just freshly dumped tries everything to get that person back.

    Words arent too creative but the message and the emotion that she sang with was more than enough.

    General CommentAgreed with previous three bloggers! In early ballad Love Don't Live Here Anymore, never has Madonna sounded so sad, dejected and heartbroken in her life. Subscribes to the First Unwritten Rule in Classic Rock-When a Cover is Not a Cover. When Lady Madonna was in the middle of recording Like a Virgin in 84, she cried at her first teacher Nile Rodgers and she screamed "Nile, I'm having a nervous breakdown! You see, my mother died when I was a little girl! I Am also a ballad singer!" Nile wondered "Madge, I hear you're naughty and controversial. Now let me hear what you're really made of. I Know you're sad. Go on and sing and cry to and for your mother!" When the song finished, Madonna cried with all her might and sang Love Don't Live Here Anymore in one take. Suddenly the Detroit Rock City Torch Balladeer was well on her way and a ticket to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Madonna seemed visibly sad, heartfelt and choked-up. Her friend and collaborator on 08's Bunny Masterpiece Hard Candy named Justin Timberlake was speechless and exclaimed "Madonna-A Beautiful Stranger and a True Friend! Madonna, with Sad Tears in Her Eyes and a Happy Smile on Her Face described her music as "Planting seeds and watching them grow. Mo matter what I do, it'll always be about the Music. Thank You." Love Don't Live Here Anymore would be the first of such songs. Madonna was now immortal and brilliant. As we celebrate the kickoff of the MDNA Tour, may it ever be so for Madonna Louise Ciccone. Love Does Live Here-in Our Hearts. Madonna Forever!

    General CommentOne of her most heartfelt and emotional songs. This song is one of her oldest but definitely one of her most underrated.
