How to file income tax without foreign earned income?

I have been traveling and working for the past 4 years without having been back in the US since I left, and have been claiming foreign earned income exclusion for the first 3 years. Last year however, I did not have any foreign income while living off of savings, but still have to file a tax return.

How do I file last year's income tax without revoking my choice of foreign earned income exclusion?

I expect to have foreign income this year, and do not want to have to revoke and then reinstate the exclusion.

Thank you
