Lori McKenna – Jealousy lyrics

I know jealousy is a terrible roommate
I know judgement's a hard friend
I have seen the look of anger
Again and again and again.
I want to be warm and happy,
Don't want to find myself cold.
I want to feel so young and pretty,
But I feel so old.

Preacher says to love thy neighbor.
Listen to the sound of the prophecy
Should others reap the fruit of your labor
You won't find yourself tormented by jealousy...

Well I love my sister, I love my brothers too
Don't want to feel myself
Holding resentment towards you.

Preacher says to love thy neighbor.
Listen to the sound of the prophecy
Should others reap the fruit of your labor
You won't find yourself tormented by jealousy,
Sweet jealousy...

Loneliness makes a horrible lover
And hatred can't fill your soul
But it creates for you this illusion that you are whole.
And greed is a good ambition
But passion will treat you right.
I want to live my life by love and appetite.

Preacher says to love thy neighbor.
Listen to the sound of the prophecy
Should others reap the fruit of your labor
You won't find yourself...

Tormented by jealousy...

Jealousy is a terrible roommate,
Judgement is a hard hard hard hard hard friend...
It's a hard friend,
It's a hard friend...
