Jealousy (All Your Friends in Silverlake)

Album: Greetings From California (2014)
  • We met A Band of Horses
    You recognized my voice and
    You said, "hello, have we ever met before?"
    I know the drill, you had to chill
    You played it cool cause all your friends were there

    You live in Silverlake,
    You said you hate LA, said it's fucking lame,
    You got more friends in New York anyway
    I know the drill, you've gotta chill
    Gotta play it cool cause you don't know what your friends would say

    All I want is a little bit of your time
    All I need is a chance for me to talk to you
    I know that I could make you mine

    Your friends don't know about anything
    Yeah, but it's all shit, hating on you cause of me
    That's okay, it's jealousy

    And your best friend's a guy, he didn't look me in the eye
    He said some shit, you just laughed and said he was shy
    That night I took you out, the things we talked about
    You played it cool cause you didn't know what to think about

    What they would say about you and me
    If your friends found out
    They'd be hating on you cause of me, all it is is jealousy

    All I want is a little bit of your time
    All I need is a chance for me to talk to you
    I know that I could make you mine

    Your friends don't know about anything
    Yeah, but it's all shit, hating on you cause of me
    That's okay, it's jealousy

    Have a little drink
    Don't worry about a thing
    Forget what they'd say
    Yeah, those jealous motherfuckers
    Yeah, but they don't matter anyway

    All I want is a little bit of your time
    All I need is a chance for me to talk to you
    I know that I could make you mine

    Your friends don't know about anything
    Yeah, but it's all shit, hating on you cause of me
    That's okay, it's jealousy Writer/s: JOEL MADDEN, BENJI MADDEN, ERIC VALENTINE, JARED POYTHRESS
