  • I'm jealous of the rain
    That falls upon your skin
    It's closer than my hands have been
    I'm jealous of the rain
    I'm jealous of the wind
    That ripples through your clothes
    It's closer than your shadow
    Oh, I'm jealous of the wind

    'Cause I wished you the best of
    All this world could give
    And I told you when you left me
    There's nothing to forgive
    But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
    Heartbreak and misery
    It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
    You're happy without me

    I'm jealous of the nights
    That I don't spend with you
    I'm wondering who you lay next to
    Oh, I'm jealous of the nights
    I'm jealous of the love
    Love that was in here
    Gone for someone else to share
    Oh, I'm jealous of the love

    'Cause I wished you the best of
    All this world could give
    And I told you when you left me
    There's nothing to forgive
    But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
    Heartbreak and misery
    It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
    You're happy without me

    As I sink in the sand
    Watch you slip through my hands
    Oh, as I die here another day, yeah
    'Cause all I do is cry behind this smile
    I wished you the best of
    All this world could give
    And I told you when you left me
    There's nothing to forgive
    But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
    Heartbreak and misery
    It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
    You're happy without me

    I-I-It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
    You're happy without me Writer/s: Josh Kear, Natalie Hemby, Timothy Mckenzie
