Bastille Love Don’t Live Here Lyrics

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

Ah, 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 of me

Why’d you 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

Love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

Just a vacancy

Love don’t live here anymore

I said love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

Daddy was a preacher

Mama had the features of an angel

Born in Oklahoma to an Anglo

Whose Anglo was pimping like a Klango

In the cutlass backseat window

I do this for my kid folk

Who saw Katrina hit and said

“But goddamn it, have we been broke

Scribes for the king

And please with my pleasantries

To the local peasantries

But although we live in hell

We can still dream heavily”

(Don’t live here, don’t live here anymore)

Scholar’s a felon

Ain’t no telling, fella!

He told me I wasn’t shit

I had to show him better

Poetic like a letter from my mistress

Who after my performance in Paris 12 district

Wrote in broken English in a match book:

‘You are terrific

And your style was godly amazing!’

Signed with pink stained lips

And a chocolate she was saving

And that note, I kept, it wept

On the metro station steps

Not giving a fuck about who saw me

For my bravery just applaud me

But love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

You abandoned me

Love don’t live here anymore

Love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

Just a vacancy

Love don’t live here anymore

Love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

Oh I’ll see you in the future

When we’re old and when we’re 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

Love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

Just a vacancy

Love don’t live here anymore

Love don’t live here

And if you break my heart

Then blood’s gonna spill here

I’ll see you in the future when we’re old

And we’re full of stories to be told

Cross my heart and hope to die

I’ll see you with your love [?]
