Everyday is always the same
She is the center of his universe
She doesn’t even know his name
And everyday he continues loving her
Loving her in vain
If she only knew the way he felt
Knew that she was his whole entire world
As she keeps loving someone else
As he could love no other girl
If she only knew how perfect she was
She is his angel in the dark
But now he’s come to realize they could never be
If only he could get inside her heart
But no matter how he tries
His angel’s too far out of reach

Nothing is so painful as to love in vain
The way he feels for her a love he will never know again
His mind tells him, “Love is not for me, not for me”
His heart loves her as her heart feels love
“She gives her love, but not to me, not to me…”
He sighs as deep inside his desire madly burns
One could only hope to love and be loved in return

Another day that’s filled with pain
Just one more day of loving him
Just one more night her tears fall like rain
Her aching heart full of love for him
Just to love in vain
Every night she dreams of him
If he could hear her silent prayer
To love like this should be a sin
Prayers and dreams won't get her anywhere
If only he could say the words
The words he says everyday
To the perfect girl, who’s the love of his life
But to her, these words he’ll never say
For a love like that, she would kill or die

Nothing is so painful as to love in vain
The way she feels for him a love she will never know again
Her mind tells her, “Love is not for me, not for me…”
Her heart loves him as his heart feels love
“He gives his love, but not to me, not to me…”
She cries as deep inside her desire madly burns
One could only hope to love and be loved in return

If you only knew how much I love you
If you could only see what you mean to me
For all my strife, what will I gain
To live my life loving in vain
I’ll always love you, but I can't go on
For the agony I feel inside
I would much more rather die
Than be imprisoned in my love for you
I’d rather be alone
I’ll go find someone who feels the way I feel
I hope you find the one you have always dreamed of
You were never mine, my fantasies weren’t real
So I’ll go, I wish you well, I wish you love

Nothing is so painful as to love in vain
The love I feel for you a love I’ll never know again
I’m all too aware that your love is not for me, not for me
My heart loves you as your heart gives no love
Not to me, not to me
I pray that you will never have to love in vain
I hope you find a love that will never go away
When your heart tells you that “This love is for me”
Meant to be…
I hope to find someone and give my love
As they give their love to me, only to me
The greatest thing is to love and be loved in return
As I could only hope to love and be loved in return
