Looking for song based on a few lyrics

I'm probably paraphrasing this lyric I remember, but I searched for key words and couldn't find anything. I'd know it if I saw it.

I'm sure it's a fairly older song, like maybe 70s or 80s, it's a ballad type of song, and the line I remember is something like, "it's so sad to learn that the one you love is in love with someone else".

Ring a bell with anyone?

Re: Looking for song based on a few lyrics

Could it be:

England Dan and John Ford Coley - It's Sad To Belong
Released 1977
Album: Dowdy Ferry Road

Met you on a springtime day
You were mindin' your life
And I was mindin' mine, too

Lady when you looked my way
I had a strange sensation
And, darlin' that's when I knew...

That it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

Oh, I wake up in the night
And I reached beside me
Hopin' you will be there

But instead I find someone
Who believe in me when I said
"I'd always care."

Oh it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

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.

Wish I had a time machine
I could make myself go back
Until the day I was born,
And I would live my life again
and rearrange it so that I'll be
Yours from now on.

Oh it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along,
Yes, it's sad to belong to someone else
When the right one comes along.

Never mind. Finally found it. England Dan & John Ford Coley: "It's so sad to belong to someone else, when the right one comes along."

I had it a little out of context.

EDIT: Thanks, 12thmonkey. Looks like we found it at the same time.

HA! I was just excited that I was able to post the answer before anyone else. Simple pleasures, I guess.

Man, my head is jammed with useless knowledge...

And that fulfills our England Dan & John Ford Coley reference quota for the next two years.

I love them but I sometimes feel I am the only person that does.

They make Seals and Crofts sound like Motorhead.
