Jealousy

Album: That Girl (2014)
  • One, two, three

    You moved so gracefully, nothing at all like me.
    Give us a smile and wave, you always did know to kill 'em baby
    I can't remember ever feeling this way,
    A burning feeling rushing all through my veins.

    What's got in me is something more than envy.
    I should be above it I know, but I just can't let it go.
    You might have heard it, I said you don't deserve him.
    But girl don't take it personally 'cause it's just jealousy

    I didn't really mean to cause such an ugly scene.
    Showing up at your house,
    Half drunk and crazy bitch I called you out,
    Or at that party where I made such a mess
    And poured my whiskey down the back of your dress.

    What got in me is something more than envy.
    I should be above it I know, but I just can't let it go.
    You might have heard it, I said you don't deserve him.
    But girl don't take it personally 'cause it's just jealousy

    Killing me, all this jealousy
    Killing me, all my jealousy
    Killing me, all this jealousy
    Killing me

    I'll stop clowning all that make-up you wear,
    I won't tell anyone you bought a new pair.
    I'll even tolerate your skanky fake hair
    'Cause we both know you win, honey you got him.

    Killing me, all my jealousy
    Killing me, all my jealousy
    Killing me, all my jealousy
    Killing me, all my jealousy

    You can have him, you can have him, you can have him.
    I'm looking for something in green, I think you know what I mean. Writer/s: JENNIFER NETTLES, KEVIN GRIFFIN
