Jealous - Labrinth



The Experience: It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way you're happy without me... Failure in love isn't just heartbreak. Sometimes you realize that there was a lot of selfishness mixed in with what you thought was true love...



Music video: Labrinth singing out his sorrows. It's slow, but it also lets Labrinth get his face into the music, and add a lot of expression.

The Meaning of Jealous: It's easy to say there's nothing to forgive, but it's a lot harder to actually mean it. If love turns to jealousy, that means your heart was in the wrong place to begin with. Because true love wants the happiness of the people you love, even if it's without me. That's why Labrinth admits that, as real as his pain is, deep down he's wrong to be jealous, and ashamed to admit it - it's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way you're happy without me.

Ask yourself: Is love about your happiness or their happiness?

LYRICS:

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
It's closer than your shadow
Oh, I'm jealous of the wind, 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

I'm jealous of the nights
That I don't spend with you
I'm wondering who you lay next to
Oh, I'm jealous of the nights
I'm jealous of the love
Love that was in here
Gone for someone else to share
Oh, I'm jealous of the love, 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

As I sink in the sand
Watch you slip through my hands
Oh, as I die here another day
Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

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

It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way

You're happy without me
