Labrinth – Jealous lyrics

[Verse:]
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


[Chorus:]
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

[Verse 2:]
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

[Chorus:]
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

[Bridge:]
As I sink in the sand
Watch you slip through my hands
Oh, as I die here another day
Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

[Chorus:]
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

[Outro:]
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

    This song is about a heartbroken man who's lover has left him. "I'm jealous of the rain that falls upon your skin." He describes his jealousy towards what is able to touch or be around his lover. How these things are closer to her than he is or ever was. "I wished you the best that all this world could give. And I told you when you left me that there's nothing to forgive." He's wishing her the best and saying that he doesn't need to forgive her for leaving him. "As I sink in the sand, watch you slip through my hands. Oh, as I die here another day cause all I do is cry behind this smile." Everything about her is slipping away from him. He feels as if he is dying because he still loves her. "But I'd 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." This man is jealous because his lover is doing just fine without him while inside he's still breaking.

    There is a powerful irony at work throughout this song, but it is revealed only in the single line that ends the chorus. He misses her desperately, he still wants her, but he believed that when he let her go, she would realize he was the best thing for her and that she would return to him, sorry that she had left int he first place. Then he realizes she is never coming back and he has to face the truth that he is torn apart by the fact that she has moved on and that she has found happiness that will never include him. Powerful song.

    Very soulful song that brought Denver Tacalan to tears. What a very sad song about a guy who lost his princess as he wish she would come back. About a guy who has a girl who broke up with and now he wants her back to tell him that she needs him and is giving reasons to make her come back. He must love her lot to be saying that but she is not is not going back with him because she already has another guy.
