songs about secrelty loving someone and not being

Recommended Posts

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 ::

"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

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?

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.

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.

Previous thread

I just noticed....Newark, Texas, and Newark, Delaware.

yea that is the first thread I visited thank you and I took one of the songs, but I am really trying to find more that r about loving someone who doesn't love you back!

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 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.

It´s not the right thread but pls, let me post this, a beautifull song credited Bacharach/David which you all must know...

What do you get when you fall in love?

A guy with a pin to burst your bubble

That's what you get for all your trouble.

I'll never fall in love again.

I'll never fall in love again.

What do you get when you kiss a guy?

You get enough germs to catch pneumonia.

After you do, he'll never phone you.

I'll never fall in love again.

I'll never fall in love again.

Don't tell me what is all about,

'Cause I've been there and I'm glad I'm out,

Out of those chains, those chains that bind you

That is why I'm here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?

You get enough tears to fill an ocean

That's what you get for your devotion.

I'll never fall in love again.

I'll never fall in love again.

What do you get when you fall in love?

You only get lies and pain and sorrow.

So, for at least until tomorrow,

I'll never fall in love again!

I'll never fall in love again!

Secretly - Skunk Anansie

I've been biding my time

Been so subtly kind

I've got to think so selfishly

'Cos you're the face inside of me

I've been biding my days

You see

Evidently it pays

I've been a friend with unbiased views

Then secretly lust after you

So now you feel rusty you're bored and bemused

You wanna do someone else

So you should be by yourself

Instead of here with me

Secretly

Trying hard to think pure

Bloody hard when i'm raw

You're talking out so sexually

About boys and girls

And your friggin' dreams

So now you feel lusty you're hot and confused

You wanna do someone else

So you should be by yourself

Instead of here with me

Secretly

So now you've been busted

You're caught feeling used

You had to do, someone else

You should have been by yourself

You had to do, someone else

You should have been by yourself

Instead of here with me

Secretly, secretly.

When I had a secret love, Closer by The Corrs was my theme song!

Here's a sample of the lyrics:

You don't see me

Watching everyday

My smile could warm your frown

And I'd never look away

(Never look away)

There's more to me

Than what you see

When you look closer, closer

Closer, closer

Closer, closer

Closer, closer

hey everyone. I need some songs about loving someone secretly and not being able to let the feelings show. i like all kinds of music except rap and the real hard "smash your face off of stuff" rock. Anyone know of any?

Henry lee; Definitely a nasty piece of work, if she couldn't have him no one could.  VICIOUS

I didn't join 15 years ago, but I do my best to *bump* the "All Things Music" subset. Ever since Last.fm terminated all forums and fan posts, I've been hanging out here to see if there is "Life on Mars." (It seems to be very sparse.)

Folks in search of Music on the Interweb don't have many choices these days, between "Buy 'N Large" (Apple) or "We Think You Like This?" (Spotify). For really obscure music, I sometimes drop by CD Baby, if a "Toy Cows in Africa"-like track catches my eye/ear on YouTube.

So now I travel the "Roads to Moscow" while "Dancing in the Moonlight," on the way to "Scarborough Fair.";)  Patrick Abe
