Song Meaning of Another Love by Tom Odell


This guy was severely hurt in a prior relationship, and despite his best efforts, he is unable to love and care for his current partner. The music is beautiful and depressing. You can actually sense his sense of helplessness and self-disgust.


The song was a huge financial success in Europe in 2013 and peaked at number ten on the UK Singles Chart, making it Odell's first top-ten hit there. It was also successful in Belgium, Austria, and the Netherlands. The song returned to the charts in Australia and Europe in 2022 after being popular on TikTok.


Lyrics of Another Love by Tom Odell


I wanna take you somewhere so you know I care

But it's so cold and I don't know where

I brought you daffodils in a pretty string

But they won't flower like they did last spring

And I wanna kiss you, make you feel alright

I'm just so tired to share my nights

I wanna cry and I wanna love

But all my tears have been used up

 

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up, up

 

And if somebody hurts you, I wanna fight

But my hands been broken one too many times

So I'll use my voice, I'll be so fucking rude

Words, they always win, but I know I'll lose

And I'd sing a song that'd be just ours

But I sang 'em all to another heart

And I wanna cry, I wanna learn to love

But all my tears have been used up

 

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up, up

 

(Oh, need a love, now, my heart is thinking of)

I wanna sing a song that'd be just ours

But I sang 'em all to another heart

And I wanna cry, I wanna fall in love

But all my tears have been used up

 

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up

On another love, another love

All my tears have been used up, up
