Did Luther Vandross Die From The Pain Of A Broken Heart? A Deeper Look At The Classic Song “A House Is Not A Home”

| June 28, 2015 | 0 Comments


Breaking up from a relationship is one of hardest things a man or a woman will go through. A heartache by far brings out the strongest emotions that a human will experience.

The emotional detachment one feels is similar to the pain you feel when a close relative dies. After the initial anger state comes the mourning stage and the pain can be unbearable for most.

The pain of a heartache could even seem like a part of you has died and the only thing that is left is hopelessness and despair. All you do is think about the good memories and the memories haunt you and take you to depths of loneliness and emptiness.

In the classic 1982 song “A house is not a home” by the late great Luther Vandross, he captures the true essence of what one goes through when the heartache from a lost love leads him to hope that his lover hopelessly returns home after realizing that a chair is still a chair even when there’s no one sitting there but sadly realizes that a chair is not a house and a house is not a home when there’s no one there to hold you tight and no one there you can kiss goodnight.

In the song his hope is that his lover returns home and when he turns the key to his home she’s sitting there saying that she’s still in love with him.
