Looking for songs that are about being with someone, but loving someone else.
Along the general lines of the following two
songs:

"Stay" by Sugarland
"Holding Her, Loving You" by Clay Walker

Any other suggestions (besides "Lips Of An
Angel" by Hinder)?

The classic (and I know a bit about this) is 'Torn Between Two Lovers' by Mary MacGregor, although my personal favourite is 'Be My Downfall by Del Amitri.



The bus is pulling out and I guess Id better go
Before I make a grave mistake and let my feelings show
And twenty miles away she waits alone for me
But when I try to picture her youre the one I see
And in another situation I could put up a fight
But you will be my downfall tonight

So the night is coming down, drowning us in blue
And it all points towards the things we know we shouldnt do
And as I look at you and I fall under your spell
Well I know I should be thinking of her lying there herself

And when faced with temptation you know a man should stand and fight
But you will be my downfall tonight

Be my downfall be my great regret be the one girl
That Ill never forget
Be my undoing be my slow road to ruin tonight

So the bus is pulling out and Im grounded here with you
And I want to say the sweet things babe Ive always wanted to
So tell me now the tail-lights have gone out of sight
Baby wont you be my downfall....
.....once again tonight.

Yeah...it's a pink moon.

I Found Someone Of My Own by Free Movement
I got up this morning
While I was having my coffee
My woman came in, sat down by my side
With tears in her eyes
She said Ive a confession to make.
I said Woman, speak whats on your mind.

She said Ive found somebody new
To take your place.
I said dont feel so all alone
Ive found someone of my own.

All those lonely nights
You left me all alone
My true love would call
And talk to me on the phone.
I said Woman, if thats the way its gotta be
Then darlin, dont you worry about me.


She said Ive found somebody new
To take your place.
I said dont feel so all alone
Ive found someone of my own.

I got up from the table
Reached down and wiped the tears
From her face
I put out my cigarette
Turned and walked away


She said Ive found somebody new
To take your place.
I said dont feel so all alone
Ive found someone of my own.
Show me a man with his two feet planted firmly on the ground and I'll show you a man who can't get his pants off.

How about "Tongue -Tied And Twisted" by johnnyguitar?
My grandad gave me some sound advice on his death-bed. "It's worth spending a bit extra for good quality speakers", he told me.

"I Honestly Love You" ~ Olivia Newton-John
"Midnight Confessions" ~ Grassroots
"Lyin' Eyes" ~ Eagles
"Even Now" ~ Barry Manilow
"Run To You" ~ Bryan Adams

Or... maybe I've got the wrong interpretation... ?
four riders behind me,
three bullets left,
two hours till sunset,
just one regret...

(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Want to Be Right~Luther Ingram

If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If being right means being without you
I'd rather live a wrong doing life
Your mama and daddy say it's a shame
It's a downright disgrace
Long as I got you by my side
I don't care what your people say

Your friends tell you there's no future
in loving a married man
If I can't see you when I want to
I'll see you when I can
If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right

Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with you
knowing I got a wife and two little children
depending on me too
And am I wrong to hunger
for the gentleness of your touch
knowing I got somebody else at home
who needs me just as much

And are you wrong to fall in love
with a married man
And am I wrong trying to hold on
to the best thing I ever had
If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right

Are you wrong to give your love
to a married man
And am I wrong trying to hold on
to the best thing I ever had
If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right
If loving you is wrong I don't wanna be right

I don't wanna be right
if it means sleeping alone at night
I don't wanna be right
if it means coming home at night
I don't wanna, I don't wanna
I don't wanna never, never, never be right

AND

Secret Lovers~Atlantic Starr

Here we are the two of us together
Taking this crazy chance to be all alone
we both know that we should not be together,
cause if they found out
it could mess up, both our happy homes.

I hate to think about us all meeting up together,
as soon as I looked at you it would show on my face.
Then they'll know that we've been loving each other.
They can never no, oh no, we can't leave a trace.


Secret Lovers that's what we are, we shouldn't be together
but we can't let it go, oh no, cause we love each other so.

Sittin at home while I do nothing all day
but I think about you and hope that your ok.
Hoping you'll call before anyone gets home
I'll wait anxiously, alone...by the phone.

How could something so wrong be so right.
I wish we didn't have to keep our love out of sight
Living two lives just ain't easy at all
but we gotta hang on and after fall.

Secret lovers that's what we are
trying so hard to hide the way we feel
cause we both belong to someone else
but we can't let it go, cause what we feel is oh so real
so real....so real...

You and me, are we fair
is this cruel, or do we care.
can they tell what's in our minds
maybe they've had secret love all of the time

In the middle of makin love we notice the time
we both get nervous cause it's way after nine.
Even though we hate it, we know it's time that we go
we gotta be careful, so that no one will know.

Secret lovers, that's what we are,
trying so hard to hide the way we feel,
cause we both belong to someone else,
but we can't let it go
cause what we feel is oh so real
so real...so real....so real....so real!

AND

Part-time Lover~Stevie Wonder
Call up, ring once, hang up the phone
To let me know you made it home
Don't want nothing to be wrong with part-time lover
If she's with me I'll blink the lights
To let you know tonight's the night
For me and you my part-time lover

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right

If I'm with friends and we should meet
Just pass me by, don't even speak
Know the word's "discreet" when part-time lovers
But if there's some emergency
Have a male friend to ask for me
So then she won't peek its really you my part-time lover

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right
(Repeat)

I've got something that I must tell
Last night someone rang our doorbell
And it was not you my part-time lover
And then a man called our exchange
But didn't want to leave his name
I guess that two can play the game
Of part-time lovers
You and me, part-time lovers
But, she and he, part-time lovers





With a sky blue sky
This rotten time
Wouldn't seem so bad to me now

May I post a song in French? It´s sung by Juliette Gréco and it´s called "Marions les".
Marions-les

Dans les bras de celle qui dort
Qui dort enfin confiante et bête
Parce qu'elle croit que tu es son maître
Moi je sais bien que tu t'ennuies
Comme tu sais que je m'ennuie
Dans les bras de celui qui dort
Orgueilleux, confiant et bête
Tu sais bien que l'on s'aime encore
Alors ces deux qu'on n'aime pas
Qu'on aime un peu

Marions-les, marions-les
Je crois qu'ils se ressemblent
Marions-les, marions-les
Ils seront très heureux ensemble !

Ils nous offrent la guérison
D'être le salut de nos vies
De briser la mélancolie
À la source de leur amour
Mais que font-ils de notre amour
Ceux qui ont pris la succession ?
Ils nous offrent que l'on oublie
C'est possible, on s'aime encore
Alors ces deux qu'on n'aime pas
Qu'on aime un peu

Marions-les, marions-les
Je crois qu'ils se ressemblent
Marions-les, marions-les
Ils seront très heureux ensemble !

Ell's nous font rire leurs colères
Etleurs rires nous font pleurer
Et leurs peines nous indiffèrent
Marions-les, marions-les, marions-les
Mais nous deux
Rentrons chez nous
