Eifersucht

Album: Sehnsucht (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about jealousy and what it makes you want to do, which goes from everything from being jealous of someone being richer ("If I am richer, then take everything from me") and ends with jealousy in love ("If I have your wife, then kill me and eat me up"). The chorus "Es koct die Eifersucht" is German for "Jealousy is cooking." >>
