    1. Secret Love Song by Little Mix and Featuring Jason Derulo

    This song by Little Mix and Jason Derulo is all about a set of lovers who happen to be in relationships with other people. It is all about wanting someone else while in a relationship and having to hide that love because their partners may discover it.

    Best Lyrics:

    “And nobody knows I’m in love with someone’s baby
    I don’t wanna hide us away
    Tell the world about the love we’re making
    I’m living for that day someday
    Why can’t I hold you in the street?
    Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
    I wish that we could be like that
    Why can’t we be like that?”

    2. It’s Sad to Belong by England Dan and John Ford Coley

    “So I lived my life in a dreamworld
    For the rest of my days
    Just you and me walkin’ hand in hand
    In a wishful memory
    Oh, I guess that’s all
    That it would ever be.”

    3. Holding Her and Loving You by Clay Walker

    In the song, Clay Walker talks about the three hardest things that he has ever done in life. The third hardest thing was leaving without the woman he loved. The next was telling his actual girlfriend about that secret love. The hardest thing was holding his girlfriend in his arms while he loved the other girl. One thing is for sure—I really wouldn’t want to be his girlfriend ever.

    Best Lyrics:

    “If she’d give me one good reason I’d be gone
    But she ain’t done one thing wrong
    So don’t expect me just to walk out of the door
    I still love her, but I love you more.”

    4. Thinking of You by Katy Perry

    This is another one of the best songs about wanting someone else while in a relationship. In it, Katy Perry talks about how much she misses an ex while she has moved on to someone else. Like most of us, she sees the relationship through rose-tinted lenses because she remembers the good, but not the bad.

    Best Lyrics:

    “How do I get better once I’ve had the best
    You said there’s tons of fish in the water
    So the waters I will test
    He kissed my lips, I taste your mouth
    He pulled me in, I was disgusted with myself.”

    5. Be My Downfall by Del Amitri

    At home, a sweet girlfriend is patiently waiting. As the protagonist heads home, he sees a girl on the bus who becomes his downfall. He takes off with her and leaves the girlfriend behind—something we never recommend anyone doing.

    Best Lyrics:

    “The bus is pulling out and I guess I’d better go
    Before I make a grave mistake and let my feelings show
    And twenty miles away she waits alone for me
    But when I try to picture her you’re the one I see.”

    6. I Honestly Love You by Olivia Newton-John

    This is a famous ballad about heartbreak. It sounds like a woman is confessing her love, but it is actually about a married woman falling in love with a married man. The good news is that nothing comes from this secret love.

    Best Lyrics:

    “If we both were born
    In another place and time
    This moment might be ending in a kiss
    But there you are with yours
    And here I am with mine
    So I guess we’ll just be leaving it at this.”

    7. She Don’t Have to Know by John Legend

    This song is about a man who heads to the other side of town to visit his mistress. It talks about how he has to sneak around in order to hide his secret affair. It is an older song on this list, but is a good option for a song about wanting someone else while in a relationship.

    Best Lyrics:

    “Oh stealing moments just to be with you
    Though it’s wrong, it’s hard to tell the truth, oh no
    She don’t have to know she don’t have to know.”

    8. Even Now by Barry Manilow

    This song by Barry Manilow is all about having to choose between an okay life with someone you used to date and a wonderful life with someone new. Even though you know that you should move past your ex and have a better life, a part of you still wishes that you could be together.

    Best Lyrics:

    “Even now when I have come so far
    I wonder where you are
    I wonder why it’s still so hard without you
    Even now when I come shining through
    I swear I think of you
    And how I wish you knew
    Even now.”

    9. Lips of an Angel by Hinder

    This was an extremely famous ballad about getting a call from an ex-girlfriend. It is all about how the guy never moved on after dating her, even though he now has a new girlfriend. Since he hides the phone call from his new girl, it is safe to say that he has bad intentions in his mind.

    Best Lyrics:

    “It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
    It sounds so sweet
    Coming from the lips of an angel
    Hearing those words – it makes me weak
    And I never wanna say goodbye
    But, girl, you make it hard to be faithful
    With the lips of an angel.”

    10. This Kiss by Carly Rae Jepsen

    While this song may sound upbeat, the lyrics are rather dark. It is all about how Carly wants to kiss a guy at a club, but both her and the mystery guy are already in relationships with other people. If you have ever struggled with wanting some else while in a relationship, a lot of the lyrics will resonate with you.

    Best Lyrics:

    “You know you’re just my type
    And your eyes are lock and key, to my heart
    Tempting my confession, my confession
    And you’re a real hot thing
    But you know I’ve got a boy somewhere
    So can you feel the tension?”
