I take it all back
All that I said
It comes out to fast

So I

Just couldn't help
The way that I felt
I started the fire.

Watching you walk
I followed you there
Standing too close

It's hurting.

I pictured the words
The warmth of your breath.
I started the fire

It's burning.

And it feels like jealousy
And it feels like I can't breathe
And I'm on, down on my knees
And it feels like jealousy.

Seeing a light
A face in the crowd
My lonely heart is racing.

And my whole world
Is under attack.
What kinda love am I facing?

Is it me that you want
Cos it's me you can have
Can you give me an answer?

I'm tired of waiting.
I'm tired of thinking.

And it feels like jealousy
And it feels like I can't breathe
And I'm on, down on my knees
And it feels like jealousy.

I'm tired of waiting.

I'm tired of thinking.

And it feels like jealousy (hey)
And it feels like I can't breathe (I can't breathe)
And I'm on, down on my knees (ohh)
And it feels like jealousy

    It's basically about loving someone, but they love someone else, and yet you still hold some kind of hope ("is it me that you want? Cos it's me you can have"), and you're jealous when you see them together because you wish that was you... I'm kind of in this situation now :(

    Most uplifting song of the summer in cape town. Ripping up the emotions on the dancefloor at the late sessions. Good production and an awesome performance by the artist.

    Jealousy is the only feeling we can never stop. It can be the most powerfull motivation for a number of feelings resulting. Will and his producers grasped hold of a most emotional and destructive feeling, with a stunning and uplifting feel. Hope resounds in the melody while massaging the broken heart. Awesome and moving masterpiece. Henry cromhout.

    Seeing somesome so perfect in your eyes and watching them drift away, reaching out to pulled them back and hold them close, but not being able to reach quite far enough. The inch that bars the tips of your ever grasping fingers from the person you so badly need. The guilt washing over you as you watch the angle slip from your reach, knowing they were never really yours. The glares to the one who has what you could never have had and the overwhelming feeling to be like them, the nigling feeling that, in your heart, nothing will ever be enough.

    Jealousy is not a single emotion, it is a mixture of emotions all bundled in together. Not always an easy trait to recognise and certainly ever be comfortable with. In the context of the song, the expression of feeling jealous is overwhelming and controlling as the situation is desperate and hopeless.
