​It's A Sin When You Love Somebody

This song is by Joe Cocker and appears on the album I Can Stand A Little Rain (1974).

Original video
Now the Lord will forgive you if you're cheating
And the Lord will forgive you if you're lying
Yes, he'll forgive and he'll help you to live
But he sure frowns down soundly on you and I

'Cause it's a sin when you love somebody
Damned if you do, twice damned if you don't
It's a sin when you love somebody
As much as I'm lovin' you

Now the Lord, he's known for his kindness
Always willing to set poor sinners free
He'll forgive and help you to live
But I still don't see no angels shine their lights on you and me

It's a sin when you love somebody
Damned if you do, twice damned if you don't
It's a sin when you love somebody
Love them like I'm lovin' you

(It's a sin when you love somebody) Somebody
(Damned if you don't, twice damned if you do)
(It's a sin when you love somebody)
As much as I'm lovin', I'm lovin', I'm lovin' you

(It's a sin when you love somebody)
(Damned if you don't, twice damned if you do)
(It's a sin when you love somebody)
As much as I'm lovin' you (ooh)
