Love Doesn’t Live Here

Tits & Ass Demo, 25 February 1996

I wake up each day
I wanna sleep that day away
I catch a train in the rush hour rain
Some people are talking to me
I don’t care what they say
’cos I know

Love doesn’t live here
Now you’ve gone away
Love doesn’t live here but I’m left to stay
And I thought it was me and you who gave it all
Yes I thought it was me and you who couldn’t fall
But it’s all over now
Over now

Friends on the phone
Life is good, life goes on
But I spend my days in a heart broken haze
Of movies and lonely tunes
Every song seems to be about you

Oh, love doesn’t live here
Since you went away
Love doesn’t live here but I’m here to stay
And I thought you and me
We were the chosen ones
Yes I thought you and me
We’d sail into the sun
But it’s gone, it’s over now

Do you ever think about it?
Do you wanna talk about it with me?

Love doesn’t live here since you went away
Love doesn’t live here but I’m left to stay
And I thought it was me and you who had it all
Yes I thought it was me and you who stood so tall
But it’s all over now
Yes it’s all over now
Over now
It’s all over now, baby
