I was dreaming of the past
And my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control
I began to lose control
I didn't mean to hurt you
Im sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
Im just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside

I didn't mean to hurt you
Im sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
Im just a jealous guy

I didn't mean to hurt you
Im sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
Im just a jealous guy

I was trying to catch your eyes
Thought that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain

I didn't mean to hurt you
Im sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
Im just a jealous guy, watch out
Im just a jealous guy, look out babe
Im just a jealous guy

    I think it was an apology to paul, as john was jealous of paul's popularity and talent. But particularly of paul's experimental music and relationships with london's art community in 1965-66, while john was stuck in the suburbs being dad/househusband. He was a jealous guy and that's what ended his marriage and changed his music and his relationship with old friends.

    Simply meaning, looking back on a past love and regret the insecurities you had. An apology for you over protected nature.

    Just looking at the lyrics makes me break down and cry -- its incredibly beautiful and has so much raw emotion. John Lennon is an inspiration and will always be remembered as an amazing talent. RIP
