a pastiche of Labrinth's Jealous lyrics
I'm jealous of the bed sheets
That wrap around you when you sleep
They’re closer to you than I am beside you
I'm jealous of the nightdress
That hugs you tight as you sleep
It's closer than my hands have been
I'm jealous of the dreams
That I don't see myself in
I'm wondering who you dream of
I’m jealous of the fantasies
That I know you have but for someone else
I’m jealous of the silence
That keeps you company
I’m wondering who you share your burdens with
I'm jealous of the love
Love that I feel isn't there
Kept for someone else to share, in secret
I’m jealous of your friends
Whom you heartily laugh with
They make you happier than I do
I’m jealous of the smile
That spreads on your face
I’m wondering why I never make you happy

I gave you all of me
And I told you when I married you
There's nothing more I want, only you, I live for you
But I always feel you’re slipping away, pulled by other love
You stopped caring, all I have is silent heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You seem happy not by me

I sink in hopelessness
Hoping to find love in our children
As I watch you slip through my hands
slowly dying, silently crying
Hurting behind this smile
