20 Song Lyrics For Love’s Unrequited Listeners


     Since my somewhat impersonal music blog is clearly the most appropriate place to divulge information from my personal life, I’ll fill you in on a not-so-secret, tidbit of information… Since maybe the 2nd grade, I have been beaten to a bloody pulp by the mistress known only as Unrequited Love. Pretty fucked up, right? Yea, it gets dark like that here at SEED killer. But hey, most people have this side to them, right? If you do, here’s a tip: Lay back, and turn up your music!

     Off of my initial confession, as fucked as it may be, one could imagine how strong my connection is to music which is heavily emotive, gravitating often to music that lyrically and sonically appeals to the broken romantic inside of me. When I’m not dancing the pain off with some high energy music, I’m sulking in an astringent concoction of hard cider… and soft tears… This all occurs to a playlist aptly titled “THAT Playlist”, which consists of an endless amassing of empathetic cuts. {I wish I were joking…}

     Getting to the point here, BLAM! I’m back with another numbered list. This here is a list (in no specific order), for the broken hearted.

20 Song Lyrics For Love’s Unrequited Listeners:

     (DISCLAIMER: Not all of these songs IN FULL directly address the topic. Hence, my listing of individual song lines)

1. Fiona Apple"Valentine"
“You didn’t get my valentine, I sent it via pantomime | While you were watching someone else, I stare at you and cut myself”

3. Corinne Bailey Rae - "Another Rainy Day"

4. Kimbra - "Withdraw"

5. Frank Ocean - "Bad Religion"
“This unrequited love, to me it’s nothing but a one man cult | and cyanide in my styrofoam cup, I could never make him love me”

6. Tegan And Sara - "Call It Off"
“Maybe I would have been something you’d be good at | Maybe you would have been something I’d be good at | but now we’ll never know”

7. Quadron - "Crush"
"If for one day I could be any bug, I’ll let him kill me for a taste of his blood | And maybe one day he will notice me, if I keep a close proximity | How soon will I get to know, if dreaming of you is wasting my time?"

8. Elizabeth And The Catapult - "The Rainiest Day Of Summer"
"Everyone’s got a bicycle but me | Cruising down the avenue like feathers on the sea | Everyone’s got a bicycle but me | It’s so unsettling. Unsettling"

10. MURS & 9th Wonder - "The Pain"
"I’m tired of getting shot down put down and dissed | I wanna be picked up, held tight and kissed | But things like these don’t happen to dudes like me | Because I’m more Coldplay than I am Ice-T"

11. eLZhi - "Someone As Real As Her (S.A.R.A.H.)"
"It’s a cold, cold world, I steady put myself out there wearing it thin, eventually becoming lovesick | She’s beautiful, personality sweet as a fragrance, as usual, my mouth shuts, speaking in body language"

12. Amy Winehouse - "You Sent Me Flying"
"His message was brutal but the delivery was kind | Maybe if I get this down, I’ll get it off my mind | Oh it serves to condition me and smoothen my kinks | Despite my frustration for the way that he thinks"

13. Michael Jackson - "Butterflies"
"All you gotta do is walk away and pass me by | Don’t acknowledge my smile when I try to say hello to you | and all you gotta do is not answer my calls when I’m trying to get through | To keep me wondering why, when all I can do is sigh"

14. Ra Ra Riot - "Can You Tell"
"What am I supposed to do, it’s hard to stay cool | When you smile at me, and I get nervous every time you speak | My bed’s too big for just me"

15. Alicia Keys - "You Don’t Know My Name"
"Doing more than I’ve ever done for anyone’s attention, Take notice of what’s in front of you | Cause did I mention you’re ‘bout to miss a good thing, and you’ll never know how good it feels to have all of my affection?"

16. April Smith & The Great Picture Show - "What’ll I Do"
"These thousands of miles of arteries | lead to heart that beats just for you | What’ll I do?"

17. Robin Thicke - “Would That Make You Love Me”
"If I came to you from a different place | would my message finally be heard? | If it’s just me and you and there’s no one else | Would you see how much we’re the same?"

18. Sucre - "Persuasion"
"Realize I want you, in the strangest way I create you | But I couldn’t dream you up, no I couldn’t dream you up | They say I don’t deserve you, but it’s true I would prefer you | over anyone’s persuasion"

19. Kat Edmonson - "Nobody Knows That"
"I’m the one that you tell, you say I understand you so well | Well, I understand perfectly | Cos you don’t know that everyday, I’m wishing I could steal your heart away | Nobody knows that but me"

20. The Pharcyde - "Passing Me By"
"Why does the apple of my eye overlook and disregard my feelings, no matter how much I try? | Wait, no, I did not really pursue my little princess with persistence, and I was so low-key that she was unaware of my existence | From a distance I desired her, secretly admired her"

     Friendly reminder that you’re the furthest thing from alone ;)

With love,
