"Another Suitcase in Another Hall" is the third and final single off Madonna's third soundtrack album Evita for the movie Evita.

Background

Unlike the musical, in the film the song is performed by Eva after ending her relationship with Agustín Magaldi, deciding she wants to improve her life. The song was not promoted and only a video was created using footage and scenes from the film.

Composition

The song is set in common time, with a slow tempo of 50 beats per minute. It is composed in the key of C♭ major, with Madonna's vocals spanning from A3 to E♭5. The song has a sequence of C♭–F♭ when Madonna sings the opening verse "I don't expect my love affairs to last for long".

Lyrics

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
Being used to trouble I anticipate it
But all the same I hate it wouldn't you?

So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?

Time and time again I've said that I don't care
That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through
But every time it matters all my words desert me
So anyone can hurt me and they do

So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?

Call in three months time and I'll be fine I know
Well maybe not that fine but I'll survive anyhow
I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion
But that's no consolation here and now

So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?

Don't ask anymore
