Sara Evans Shares Heartbreaking New Single ‘All The Love You Left Me’

 

Sara Evans has selected “All the Love You Left Me” as her latest single, and it’s one of the strongest tracks on her 2017 album Words.

Like a lot of Evans’ better material over the years, the song deals with matters of the heart. The moody ballad finds Evans unable to shake those lingering feelings after an apparent breakup. Despite its lyrical content, the song sounds pretty upbeat. It’s as if the narrator overcomes heartache by facing it head-on. In all, Evans sticks to the type of song that catapulted her to fame in the early aughts.

A product of a time when more women got a fair shake at commercial airplay, Evans made a point to work with female songwriters for her latest album. “Jesus, Take the Wheel” writer Hillary Lindsey co-wrote “All the Love You Left Me” alongside Gordon Sampson and Ben West. Evans’ other counters to fruitless claims about “tomatoes” include songs written by Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Pistol Annies member Ashley Monroe and other talented Nashville-based songwriters.

Evans’ own Born to Fly Records issued Words, her eighth career studio album, last July.

“All the Love You Left Me” Lyrics:

It’s here when I wake up every single morning
Follows me down the stairs
And the paper on the wall and the plaster on the ceiling
Every single drop of air that I’m breathing
What am I supposed to do
What am I supposed to do with
All the love you left me
All the love you left me

It can’t hold me, it don’t kiss me
But in these sheets, it lays down with me
All the love you left me
You left me, left me, left me, left me
You left me, left me, left me, left me

Can’t wash it off like makeup
Leave it in the closet like a dress out of style
Can’t light it up and burn it
Box it up and send it like the shirt you left behind
What am I supposed to do
What am I supposed to do with
All the love you left me
Yeah all the love you left me

It can’t hold me, it don’t kiss me
But in these sheets, it lays down with me
All the love you left me
Yeah all the love you left me
All the love you left me

It can’t hold me, it don’t kiss me
But in these sheets, it lays down with me
I turn the lights on, I turn the lights off
But it don’t matter, baby, all that I got is

All the love you left me
Yeah all the love you left me

It can’t hold me, it don’t kiss me
But in these sheets, it lays down with me
All the love you left me
Yeah all the love you left me

It can’t hold me, it don’t kiss me
But in these sheets, it lays down with me
Yeah all the love you left me
Yeah all the love you left me
The love you left me
All the love you left me
All the love you left me
The love you left me
