Well I seem him every morning in the schoolyard
When the school bell rings
And when he passes in the hallway
Well he doesn't seem to notice me

He's got a crush on my best friend
But she don't care, 'cause she loves someone else
I'm standing on the outside, no the inside where I wanna be

Love's unkind, love's unkind
Love's unkind, love's unkind
'Cause he's not mine

Just the other day I was praying that he'd give me a chance
Hoping he would choose me for his partner
For the high school dance
I was standing outside the class

But it wasn't me, but my best friend, he asked
I went running back inside teary-eyed
And left the two of them behind

Love's unkind, love's unkind
Love's unkind, love's unkind
'cause he's not mine

Oh, how I love him, but I can't even let him know
'cause he loves my best friend
But she don't care, she loves someone else
And I asked my mama, and she said: love's unkind

Love's so unkind
She said: just keep it alive
'Cause you may find love's unkind

Love's unkind, love's unkind
Love's unkind, love's unkind

Oh, Why did I have to love him so
Why did I have to love him so
