About Love's Unkind

"Love's Unkind" is a song by American singer and songwriter Donna Summer from her album, I Remember Yesterday, which combined modern disco beats with sounds of previous decades. "Love's Unkind" has stories of high school crushes and love triangles. It became one of her biggest hits in the UK, peaking at number three, while it reached number 32 in the Netherlands. Though never released as a single in the USA, it topped the dance chart as part of the I Remember Yesterday album, as at that time entire albums could count as one entry on that particular chart.

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
