Sting - I Love Her But She Loves Someone Else Lyrics




When a man of my age shaves his face in the morning,
Who is it that stares back and greets him?
The ghost of his father long dead all these years?
Or the boy that he was, still wet in the ears?
Or the terrible sum of all of his fears,
In the eyes of this stranger who meets him?

So his glance rarely strays from his chin or his jawline,
To face up to the truth of his soul,
It's the eyes he avoids so afraid to acknowledge,
Something strange, unexpected, out of control.

There are times when a man needs to brave his reflection,
And face what he sees without fear,
It takes a man to accept his mortality,
Or be surprised by the presence of a tear.

It was only an arrangement, a practical arrangement,
I forgot the first commandment of the realist's handbook,
Don't be fooled by illusions you created yourself,
And fall in love with someone, when she loves someone else.

Like a covering of snow on a winter's night,
It glistens and it sparkles in the moonlight,
But it's gone by the morning, how quickly it melts,
You still love her but she loves someone else.

And where does that leave you?
You self-styled man of vision.
You feel stupid, you feel angry, are you losing your mind?
To destroy the one she loves, does that become your mission?
Like a pantomime villain with an axe to grind?
To regain your self-respect, hold your head up like a man,
Use the ice around your heart before it melts,
But you're not fooling anybody, you're only fooling yourself.

Like a covering of snow on a winter's night,
It glistens and it sparkles in the moonlight,
But it's gone by the morning, how quickly it melts,
You still love her but she loves someone else.

    Love you sting and your perspective of life you deliver through these songs..
    This song was my support when I fell in a similar situation..

    And fall in love with someone who loves some one else..
    You are not fooling anybody you are fooling your self..

  17. AIRELA HAYK

    Чтобы вернуть уважение к себе, держи голову прямо как мужчина,
    Используй лёд, сковавший твоё сердце, пока он не растаял.
    Но ты никого этим не обманешь, а только одурачишь самого себя.
    Но он исчезнет утром, он так быстро растает...

  18. Tao Ta

    I'm so cold and sad, I cant think of one good thing that happened in my life.

    Tao Ta But hey, someone just liked your comment on YouTube. I'm afraid that's bit more than nothing :)

  19. Crazy Howrse

    tubeyou89119

    natasha wilcox life is too short. If you both still have MUTUAL affection for each other, you should make a move, more moves. Otherwise you will be haunted in all your future relationships. You own your hearts a responsible answers. Good luck.

  23. Asya Smith

    Who hurt you Sting?? T~T

  24. Sbsd Games

    and i have been feeling the same from yesterday, i dont have any idea what to do or say, all my life i have done nothing wrong even if i did i learn n thought this girl would be my life and will think of me the same, but in the end she chose some one else, i am not angry about it, if she's happy so am i for her, but it hurts a lot, so much have happened and now this, maybe i expected too much, this time i cant move on, feeling real alone. :(

    this song says many things about my state i am in right now.

  25. Leona Black

    I love him, but yesterday I saw this song on his facebook. Maybe it means that he's in love with some other girl? That's painful. Anyway, N., If you see this, you will know that somebody loves you very much and wants to be with you every second oh her life, to support you and helps you in every possible way. It's a pity, you don't notice me. Nevertheless, I want you to find your true love, maybe that girl. Don't be sad, you are such amazing, beautiful and talanted person and musician. Love you.
    P.S. Я бы с радостью тебя позабыла, но не могу. Как писала Цветаева: "Нет на свете второго Вас."

    Ahmed S.

    Tell him

    Story of my life.. We were really close for a few years, but there has always been someone else.. at some point I came clean about my feelings and she said there were "Moments" where she might have felt something.. "Moments".. It's been almost a year and I'm trying to move on.. No luck.. came to terms that I'll never get to the point where I'm fully over her, so I decided it's gonna be that kind of emotional involvement you'd have to push to the deepest pits of your heart, while working on a relationship with someone else. I don't know if it'd be unfair to them but I guess It's all about companionship be all and end all. 

    Anh Khoi Vu

    Thanks Bro. At least I know I'm not the only one.... So is my life now. But how can I move on now? :(

    James Holmes

    Ahmed S. It happened again with the same woman. Her relationship fell apart with the guy she was with. we started talking again and we grew very close once more. we started dating on last Christmas and it was going great until recently. She left me, again and now not even 2 weeks after she left she found a new guy. I'm hurt. I try to trust her and tell myself it won't happen again, but it did. I love her, but it's killing me. she said she'll explain everything, but I don't really know what there is to explain.

    Ahmed S.

    There's no recipe for moving on I'm afraid.. It's a very personal experience and each go about it a different way.. My best wishes mate

    Ahmed S.

    I'm very sorry, James.. I don't know what to say, but I know exactly how you feel... Take your time healing up, cut ties and move on.. Seems you are a wonderful man, you did nothing wrong an you're awfully loyal. Maybe now you know that person just isn't right for you.. You waited on, you gave her one chance after another and they just don't seem to appreciate it, but now you've read that book and know exactly how it ends rather than spending the rest of your life wondering how it'd be, and that in it's own is a big win.

    Carry on my friend, It shall pass

    Jesus Perez

    Ahmed S. Its been 7 years and still not over her. When you meet a soulmate and don't get them. Sometimes even when old you remember them

  33. JosieJo2014

    Love it just love it

  34. Jay Kimishima

    i love her,she love him :'(
    i cried everytime when i saw her with him togeher..what should i do?  :((

    Musk

    i don't know, but i feel the same thing when I see her with the guy that she's "dating"

    S.H. Han.

    and he loves you :)

    Jesus Perez

    Jay Kimishima You leave mi friend. Don't be selfish and ruin it for her.

  35. Bill Cayemberg

    Sting at his best.  Brave your reflection and accept what you see.  It seems to be one of the tougher tasks to age gracefully.  Surrender the things of youth.  What some great art/music.  Thank you Sting.  Note: The book is Broken Music not Broken Strings.

  36. robdog15001

    You guys should check out Sting's Book-Broken strings'-It has a sad but real life story of his Dad and Mom's relationship--'Sting's Dad was just cool..just cool...

    naneeLeo

    " Broken Music " is the title of his book ;)

  37. Алексей Пипов

    this song is beautiful. But, what should you really do? Im in love with girl, she rejected me 3 times and her boyfriend is total douche.

    Musk

    I'm in love with girl, but can't talk with her, just like a friend, but i really feel bad when i saw the she was "dating" with somebody, so, i still trying to forget her :\

  38. Onix Phoenix

    awsome song hes great

  39. pensacola159

    or i love him but ....

  40. dr. Czimmermann Zsolt

    The true power of the song reveals itself when you think that the "Someone Else" she loves is actually no one but YOU. But you were too blind to see. You almost destroyed a relationship with your imaginary jelaousy.

    robdog15001

    "Can't be she, she never told me--as I cried away my nights and wished for the bad
    dream to end".

    robdog15001

    @robdog15001"She heard my cries but  never said a word". 

  41. Katy

    This song is wonderful :D 

  42. Bart George

    splendid

  43. blondedbythelight703

    Who is his "HER" I wonder.

  44. straycat316

    That album is amazing :)

  45. Hugh Carpenter

    Like a covering of snow on a winter's night
    It glistens and it sparkles in the moonlight
    But it's gone by the morning, how quickly it melts
    You still love her, but she loves someone else.

  46. MusicMMi

    This is simply one of the most beautiful ballads that Sting has ever written!

  47. Kimberly Yuk

    Love love love <3

  48. Piggy-218

    Sting and I must be on the same celestial plane subconsciously. I wrote a poem just like this..some lines are exactly the same back in 1996...strange. . I have to wonder if the universe has not stolen souls. I know this song well..showed photos of myself to others and they said "WHO IS THAT MAN":.I could not do a thing...TIME is its own Keeper.
