Jewel recently played "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" on Instagram. She debuted the song at 2 Never Broken Foundation benefit fundraisers in December last year.

Lyrics:

Quote
The last time that I saw you,
A yellow canary lit on your shoulder
You laughed
I took a photograph
It lives in a box
Full of old buttons
And things that are lost

You didnít think I could see you
But there was a mirror over your shoulder
I watched the smile fade from your face
As you turned away

Love steps lightly from the door
It leaves with just a sigh
Oh, I canít ignore
The musicís died
So turn the lights way down low
Close the curtain on the show
I know, I know
Love donít live here anymore

And Iíve been a mess
Trying to pinpoint
Exactly what happened
Isnít it just like a woman
To look inside her own heart
As if sheís to blame
For everything that goes wrong
In the dark

Step lightly from the door
Leave with just a sigh
Oh, I canít ignore
The musicís died
Turn the lights way down low
Close the curtains on the show
I know, I know
Love donít live here anymore

Let it go now, let it go now
You canít hold back a river
Let it go now, let it go

And step lightly from the door
You can leave with just a sigh
Oh I canít ignore
The musicís died
Turn the lights way down low
Close the curtains on the show
I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know
Love donít live here anymore
Love donít live here anymore

I like the song a lot. It sounds derivative of Leonard Cohen's Famous Blue Raincoat though. :(

Thoughts?

It sounds way too much like that song and other parts of it are regurgitations of other songs I've already heard.

What happened to that blog post about really buckling down and coming up with the best ideas in 20+ years or whatever?  Everything on PUTP is better than everything from this era. This one's going to fade off into angelfood land or whatever because it's perilously close to a lawsuit, but hot damn this is the best of hundreds of songs?  F'n terrible.

Except for the screaming near the end, I really like this song. Too bad it won't be on the album.  :indifferent:
It feels like someone's face is stuck to the bottom of my shoe

I'm glad it didn't make the album. It kind of made me scared for the new album. I really hope it won't be half as hysterical as this, that's a new bad habbit of her.
No longer lend your strenght to that which you wish to be free from.
