Hi -- Here are a few more songs for you. . . "Midnight Confessions," by the Grass Roots. . . "Part-Time Lover," by Stevie Wonder. Also, "Me and Mrs. Jones," by Billy Paul is good (". . .we both know that it's wrong, but it's much too strong. . .we gotta be extra careful, that we don't build our hopes up too high. . .it hurts so much, it hurts so much inside. Now she'll go her way and I'll go mine, tomorrow we'll meet the same place the same time. . .) and,
perhaps the best one. . ."If Loving You is Wrong," by Luther Ingram. . .

If loving u is wrong, I don't want to be right
If being right means being without u
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 u by my side
I don't care what your people say.

Your friends tell u there's no future
In loving a married man
If I can't see u when I want
I'll see u when I can.
If loving u is wrong, I don't want to be right
If loving u is wrong, I don't want to be right.

Am I wrong to fall so deeply in love with u
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 someone else at home
who needs me just as much.

And are u wrong to give your love
to a married man
And am I wrong for trying to hold on
to the best thing I ever had
If loving u is wrong, I don't want to be right
If loving u is wrong, I don't want to be right.

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

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

Midnight Confession is perfect. How about "Have You Ever Loved a Woman", Derek and the Dominos. "Don't Stand So Close To Me", The Police. "My Best Friend's Girl" , the Cars. :shock:
"Catch a wave and you're sittin' on top of the world".

Okay, im looking for a song about you loving someone and them not loving you back. Someone already posted something like this, but they like diffrent music than me and i wasnt interested in any reply songs. So I like alot of diffrent kinds of music, but i hate country, and im not very interested in old stuff like that, but some of it is good. I like rock-ish stuff. Like taking back sunday, brand new, metallica, nirvana, linkin park, and just diffrent songs. So if someone could name some songs about loving someone who doesnt love you back, in the type of music that i like, it would be muchly appreciated, thank you

Here are two girlies who really know what you're talking about :cool:

"Animal" by Front 242

It's always the same
I'm the only one who's always left to blame
Take what you can take
Hurt is your only idea of a game
To break away
I don't have that within me
And I'm not your prey
So I bite the hand that feeds me

When all you do is break me
And put me
You put me in a cage

When I look in the mirror
All that I see
A zoo animal that wants to be free
Just get away, get away from me
'Cause I'll never be who you want me to be
No

It's always the same
It's not easy to keep myself contained
Sit back and relax
How can I when I'm going down in flames?

'Cause all you do is break me
And put me
You put me in a cage

(Chorus)

Get away get away get away get away

(Chorus)

All you do is break me
And put me
You put me in a cage

When I look in the mirror
I just want to be free
Want to be free
I just want to be free

"Modern Angel" by Front 242

I never said those things you buried
Of all the liars you'll be so cynical
The modern angel's so hard to come by
I hate to touch your stinking cur

There are things that one should never see
There are things that one should never see

I don't know what you've started saying now
Give me no conscience, can't listen to bodies
Stay low, lock the door
I know there's more than just an aching in store

I want a gun that's sexual
You wanted size
I'll give you a big tour
Big crane grabs your brain
Pain is a gas engages your force

There are things that one should never see
There are things that one should never see

Your modern angels gone to ruin
Ignorance thinking about stealing the world
As the century fades from view
She give a f* ck if you reach twenty-two.

I want you to find happiness...

"Vow" by Garbage

I can't use what I can't abuse
And I can't stop when it comes to you

You burned me out but I'm back at your door
Like Joan of Arc coming back for more

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I cam to shut you up
I came to drag you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

You burn and burn to get under my skin
You've gone too far now I won't give in
You crucified me but I'm back in your bed
Like Jesus Christ coming from the dead

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to knock you up
I came to cut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to rip you up
I came to shut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to shut you up
I came to suck you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
Tear your little world apart
Tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

I can't stop when it comes to you
I can't stop when it comes to you
When it comes to you
When it comes to you
If you got bliss, I will follow.

Hi emf24 :: Your post made me think of this old one hit wonder from the 70's.It's beautiful and very touching.It may not be what your looking for though.Anyway here it is.

Free Movement - I've Found Someone Of My Own

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, :I have a confession to make"
And I said, ?Woman,
Speak what?s on your mind?

She said, ?I found somebody new
To take your place?
I said, ?Don?t feel so all alone
I found someone of my own?

On those lonely nights
You left me all alone
Oh my new love would call
And comfort me on the phone
And I said, ?Woman
If that?s the way it?s gotta be,
Then darlin?
Don?t you worry ?bout me?

She said, ?I found somebody new
To take your place?
I said, ?Don?t feel so all alone
I found someone of my own?

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

She said, ?I found somebody new
To take your place?
I said, ?Don?t feel so all alone
I found someone of my own?
I've topped the wind-swept heights wth easy grace where never lark,or ever eagle flew.

great list foxy! and some great suggestions by the rest of you and all. however, call me a cynic, but i always figured that 'more than words' was about a guy convincing a girl to sleep with him! y'know, more than words - wink wink! ;)

Creep- Radiohead is probably the best one. i always listen to that because i always feel the way you're feeling. Creep is just about liking someone but thinking you will never be good enough for them no matter how hard you try and you want them to be happy so you won't try and make them like you. The radio edit sucks because it doesn't show the angerness of the song.

I need some songs (prferably 1985 & newer), that are about loving someone who doesn't love you the same way, and also about loving someone secretly!!

jasam, here's a thread we had a while back, similar to what you're looking for. Some of the songs are older than what you've asked for, but I'm sure there are some you'll be able to use.

Welcome to Songfacts.

You can't get better than Martin L. Gore's cover of Tuxedomoon's "In A Manner Of Speaking" from his 1988 e.p., Counterfeit. That e.p. also has "A Smile In The Crowd" originally done by The Durutti Column :puppyeyes: I can post the songs later on for you to listen to them, but it'll have to be around Monday :headphones: Meanwhile, you can look up the lyrics and see for yourself if they're the kinds of songs you're looking for.
If you got bliss, I will follow.

"If Theres Any Justice" by Lemar

Not exactly what you're looking for, but still a good song about loving someone who is with someone else.


:headphones: :headphones: :headphones: :headphones:
If there's any justice in the world,
I would be your man,
You would be my girl,
If i'd found you first you know its true,
He would be alone,
I would be with you,

When you decide, dont let me down,
Coz there's nothing to be certain in my life,
And you've seen a thousand times
There's not much justice in the world
If there's any justice in your heart,
You love pity it changed,
Ease it into heart,
Oh no,
Why dont you remember how it feels,
Not to give a damn,
For anyone but me

I cant believe you'd be decieved,
Changing memories from truth to fantasy,
Where there's nothing left but tears,
And there's not much justice in the world

Just because he's wrapped around your finger,
Don't fool yourself with dreams that might appear,
If in time you'll stop and trust your feelings,
The truth is out there somewhere
It's blowing in the wind

If there's any justice in the world,
I would be your man,
You would be my girl,
Oh yeah,
If i'd found you first you know its true,
He would be alone,
I would be with you,

When you decide, dont let me down,
Coz there's nothing to be certain in my life,
And you've seen a thousand times
There's not much justice in the world

If I should lose you girl you know,
That theres not much justice in the world

If there's any justice in the world,
You're gonna be my baby,
You're gonna be my baby,
You're gonna be my baby!

Secretly Loving Someone?...try

Dreaming (of You) by Selena

Dreaming of You

Late at night when all the world is sleeping I stay up and think of you
And I wish on a star that somewhere you are
thinking of me too
Cause I'm dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
than here in my room dreaming about you and me
Wonder if you ever see me and I
wonder if you know I'm there (am I there, am I?)
If you looked in my eyes would you see what's inside
Would you even care?
I just wanna hold you close but so far
all I have are dreams of you
So I wait for the day (wait for the day)
to take the courage to say how much I love you
Yes I do
I'll be dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
than here in my room dreaming about you and me
Corazón No puedo dejar de pensar en ti Como te necesito Mi amor, como te extraño
Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe
that you came up to me and said I love you
I love you too
Now I'm dreaming with you tonight
Till tomorrow (till tomorrow) and for all of my life
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
than here in my room
Dreaming with you endlessly

This is not only about loving someone secretly, but it´s so good...
Steve Forbert
Sadly Sorta Like A Soap Opera



The walls closing around you, and he won`t be home tonight.
He's out somewhere and gambling and perhaps he's in a fight,
and yes you know about the woman, and you know its three or four,
and perhaps he's out there laughing now and dancing on the floor.
And yet you try to make the best of it, wich is'nt much I know.
You thought you've had your fill of it, but you see that it wasn´t so.
No....
Now your babies are sleeping soundly, and you hang your head and think.
He damn near broke your nose last night, and harder does he drink,
and as the wind blows at the window, and the clouds go by the moon,
the walls closing around you and your sadnes fills the room
And yet you try to make the best of it, which is'nt much I know.
You thought you've had your fill of it, but you see that it was'nt so.
No....
You know you make your own decisions and you live the life you choose,
I watch it from the sidelines and it sure gives me the blues,
you know you're sure to find me waiting, should you ever come around,
I´m the one who loves you while he drives you further down.
And yet you try to make the best of it, wich is'nt much I know.
You thought you've had your fill of it, but you see that it wasn´t so.
No....

i think one of my favorites ones is "nothing came out" by the moldy peaches:
Just because I don't say anything,
Doesn't mean I don't like you.
I open my mouth and I try and i try
But no words came out.

Without 40 oz. of social skills
I'm just an ass in the crack of humanity.
I'm just a huge manitee.
A huge manitee.

And besides you're probably holding hands
With some skinny, pretty girl that likes to
Talk about bands and
All I wana do is ride bikes with you
And stay up late and watch cartoons.

Duck Tales, shirt tails, Talespin, Sailor Moon, GI Joe, Robotech, Ron Jeremy, Schmoo.

I wanna watch cartons with you.
Josie and the Pussycats and Scooby Doo,
I want you to watch cartoons with me.
He-man, Voltron and Hong-Kong-Fui

I tried to ask you to your face
But no words came out.
I put on my hood and walked away,
That doesn't mean I don't like you.

And besides your probably holding hands
With some skinny, pretty girl that likes to
Talk about bands and
All I wanna do is ride bikes with you,
And stay up late and maybe spoon.

Just becase I dont say anything
Doesn't mean I dont like you.
No...
I opened my mouth and i tried and i tried.

And besides you're probably holding hands
With some skiny, pretty girl that likes to
Talk about bands and
All I wanna do is ride bikes with you.
And stay up late and watch cartoons.

I'm just your average Thundercats ho.
I don't want you to adore me, don't want you to ignore me when it pleases you, I can do it on my own
