Jealous


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.

‘Cause 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.

Because this relationship has NON EXISTENT boundaries, you will find YOURSELF constantly PUT UPON and FORCED to accept responsibility for things you didn’t do or say.
