About Love Don't Live Here Anymore

"Love Don't Live Here Anymore" is a song written by Miles Gregory and originally recorded by Rose Royce. It was produced by former Motown songwriter and producer Norman Whitfield for Whitfield Records. Lead vocals were sung by Gwen Dickey and the song was released as the second single from their third studio album Strikes Again. The song was developed as a result of producer Whitfield's interest to work with Paul Buckmaster, the British arranger and composer. Together they asked songwriter Miles Gregory to write a song for them. Gregory's undergoing medical care for his deteriorating physical health became the inspiration behind the song. "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" incorporated the use of the Electronic LinnDrum machine, and was one of the first songs to effectively use the sound reverbs of the instrument. The song was mainly recorded at music contractor Gene Bianco's house, where Dickey was present during the recording. After its release, the song was critically appreciated, but was only moderately successful commercially. It reached a peak of 32 on the Billboard Hot 100 and five on the Hot Black Singles chart. It achieved its highest position in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom, where it reached number two. "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" has been covered by a number of artists, including Madonna, Morrissey–Mullen, Jimmy Nail and Faith Evans. Madonna's version was included in her second studio album Like a Virgin (1984), and it was the idea of Michael Ostin, the head of the A&R department of Warner Bros. Records, that Madonna record a cover version of the song to include in the album. A remix of Madonna's cover was included in her 1995 ballad compilation album Something to Remember.

You abandoned me
Love don't live here any more
Just look back and see
Love don't live here any more

When you lived inside of me
There was nothing in the world you wouldn't do for me
Trouble seemed so far away, then you changed and went away

And you abandoned me
Love don't live here any more
Just look back and see that
Love don't live here any more
Any more

Love don't live here any more
Just emptiness and memories of what we had before
Why'd you have to go away, find another place to stay?

You abandoned me
Love don't live here any more
Just look back and see
Love don't live here any more
Yeah

Through the windows in my eyes everyone can see the loneliness inside of me
Don't you know I need you so, why did you have to go?

And abandon me
Love don't live here any more
Just look back and see that
Love don't live here any more

Yeah, don't live here any more
Love don't live here
Don't live here any more
Any more
You went away and left me
Now, love don't live here any more
Any more
Love don't live here any more
