Jealousy

Tigerlily Cover Album

O, jealousy

Is she fine So well bred The perfect girl

A social deb?

Is she the sort

You’ve always thought Could make you

What you’re not?

O, jealousy

Is she bright So well read Are there novels

By her bed?

Is she the sort You’ve always said Could satisfy

Your head?

O, my jealousy

Does she talk The way I do Is her voice reminding you Of the promises The little white lies too Sometimes, tell me While she’s touching you Just by mistake

Accidently do you say my name?
