How can I stay in this place
All that I see is her face
And every room just seems to haunt me

Why would she throw love away
Guess there's no reason to stay
Maybe it's time to close the door

Darlin',
Love it doesn't live here anymore
Why can't it be like before
I know that she still wants me
Tell me why, why did she have to go
Love doesn't live here, I know

I thought our love would go on
But somehow she knew all along
That we could never find an answer

Putting an end to our plans
Leaving my heart in my hands
Saying goodbye is such a chore

Darlin',
Love doesn't live here anymore
Why can't it be like before
I know that she still wants me
Tell me why, why did she have to go
Love doesn't live here

And we had something,
There can be no doubt
Now there's nothing left to talk about
She's the one thing I can't live without
How can I leave it all behind

And how could she throw love away
Guess there's no reason to stay
Maybe it's time to close the door

Darlin',
Love doesn't live here anymore
Why can't it be like before
I know that she still wants me
Tell me why, why did she have to go

Love doesn't live here anymore
Why can't it be like before
I know that she still wants me

Tell me why, why did she have to go
Love doesn't live here,
I know
I know
I know
I know
