Yuna - Unrequited Love Lyrics

Only when I look into your eyes
My senses ignite
I feel alive
I was waiting for an answer
Like a feather falling
From the sky

You don't want to belong to me
'Cause freedom feels better
Then I could give
You love inadequately
But you steal hearts like mine

Why you gotta be—
Why you gotta be my unrequited love, unrequited love
Why can't our love be—
Why can't our love be possible?

For as long as I can remember
Like oil and water
We collide
But you don't seem to want forever
This adventure
Was only real to my eyes

You don't want to listen to me
'Cause freedom sounds better
And I can see you love inadequately
But you steal hearts like mine

Why you gotta be—
Why you gotta be my unrequited love, unrequited love
Why can't our love be—
Why can't our love be possible?

You're a man with excuses
'Cause we've had something real
But it was only what I feel alone
Oh, you're a man with your muses
Always wanting something new
And I was just someone that you could use

Why you gotta be—
Why you gotta be my unrequited love, unrequited love
Why can't our love be—
Why can't our love be possible?

    I swear this song kills me everytime I listen to it. One of the worst pain is a broken heart. It kills you slowly,you feel it in your body în your mind, it takes over you,you find yourself waking up at night with tears în your eyes and a pain in your chest. It's not fair for someone to make you open up to them to show them parts of you no one else saw and after that they just become strangers that know all your secrets.

    Sometimes you find yourself trying not to press Pause. But it´s like, you haven´t been listening enough this time. And you feel like you belong here. You are one with the vocal waves and music.

    I'm a Rhythmic Gymnast, I started over 4 months ago (which is very late considering how old I am) and I started crushing on probably the best girl at my club 8 days ago. I've only spoken to her three or four times but I just can't help but like her. I've never felt this strongly about anyone before and this is probably one of the most convenient situations to like someone I've ever had, which says a lot considering the fact that I'm almost 100% sure she doesn't even like girls.
    She makes my heart feel so happy and her smile makes me feel so incredibly indescribably happy that I want to cry.
    I messaged her on Instagram this morning and told her, maybe I should have made it more clear but she said she'd "love to be friends"..... I don't really know whether that was just her not understanding what I meant or her rejecting me in one of the cruellest ways possible.
    I'm so glad that I can hang out with her and be friends but it saddens me gravely that I don't truly feel like I got an answer. I love liking her so much that I almost don't want to get over her. I wonder if I'll just be hanging on to hope for years.
    One of the saddest parts is the fact that I actually thought she liked me. Of course, I had doubts but on Thursday evening I had a training session and I don't spend a lot of time in the main gym where she is but every time I was; I stared at her and so many times she caught me staring and quite often smiled back. Once, as my group and I were leaving the ballet room, we passed each other in the doorway and she grinned at me and I swear to satan that I was so surprised and nervous and wanting to cry that I whispered "Faen" (fuck in Norsk) as I was walking down that hallway. And at the end of gym; my bestfriend and I were walking past her and I looked over at her and once again she gave me that grin and I desperately tried to smile back but just basically ended up quickly looking down at my sleeve and dying on the inside.
    It's such a painful indescribable feeling that I feel like crying all day and night.
    Thank you for reading, I hope this ends well <3

    This insane song and Best of Me are the best songs on this incredible album🔥💯💙. I love those 2016 R&B albums. That was my favorite year in music(Hip Hop 1998). 🔥🔥Chapters🔥🔥 was my 2nd favorite album that year(#1 was Kiara Craft A Rumor about Love)

    Just K

    Yes.. This Chapters album really dope. I love Best Love and Unrequited Love so much!!! 💥

  45. CyberShiroGX

    So glad Tyler collabed with her otherwise, I would never have stumbled upon this opening poem.

    Recently just went through a sort of break up trying to figure how to fill the void she left me. She texted me just yesterday probably an attempt to go back to "what we were", but it was an unrequited love which I needed to let go... And this poem really put into perspective what I am feeling

  46. Janelle Soc

    the most beautiful words

  47. handri i

    She never love me, but the stupid thing is i still hoping she will love me one day, i act like idiot because of her

  88. Anna Villatoro



  89. Miranda TheGerm

    This song is just filled with so many metaphors, and such a deep message at its core. The simplisticness of the video and the beautiful melody, along with Yuna's songbird voice makes this song such a masterpiece.

  90. Amber Kay
