Jealousy (She Only Dances)

i still want to get to the roots of jealousy and rip them out; this unfortunately does not mean that i do not sometimes feel it and suffer it and cause it while I am trying to understand it. i do not think that i ever intentionally try to make you suffer, and i hope the same is true for you. there are so many things to talk about, while we try to follow the feelings we share at the same time as doing everything that makes us happy when we are apart.

    she only dances with you to make me jealous
    and love is just a little game we play
    hiding our true selves and hoping for honesty
    holding our hearts where they won't get in the way

      now jealousy's nothing new, but I don't understand
      how it could bring us closer, or make me take her hand
      I don't know why we do this, we both wish that it would end
      we suffer for this daily now, why can't we just be friends?

    she only kisses me to make you jealous
    thinking a hundred things she won't say why
    when you're messing with her clothes, will I even notice...
    that new silk dress she wore to catch my eye?

      now jealousy's nothing new, but I don't understand
      how it could bring us closer, or make me take her hand
      I don't know why we do this, we both wish that it would end
      habits of old and staler times, why can't we just be friends?

    she only sleeps with you to make him jealous
    but all it does is confuse the sweetest dreams
    a most peculiar plot to plunder pleasure
    we try our best but stay entangled in these schemes...

      now jealousy's nothing new, but I don't understand
      how it could bring us closer, or make me take her hand
      I don't know why we do this, we both wish that it would end
      causing so much useless pain, why can't we just be friends?

          How do I know you really love me?
          How can I tell you truly care?

          (repeat many times)
