The sweet agony of unrequited love in songs

Oh, what could be if you weren't so blind to the great love story that is us.
  1. Sweet Emma "I'm alone because I love you" (original Eddy Armold)

  2. Björk "It's oh so quiet" (original: Betty Hutton)
    "...You've never been so nuts about a guy You want to laugh you want to cry You cross your heart and hope to die..."

    "I tried to give you consolation When your old man had let you down Like a fool, I fell in love with you You turned my whole world upside down"
  4. Killers "Mr. Brightside"
    ..."And my stomach is sick And it's all in my head But she's touching his chest Now, he takes off her dress Now, let me go..."
  5. Adele "One and only"
