Jealous Heart, Oh, Jealous Heart stop beating
Can't you see the damage you have done
You have driven him/her away forever
Jealous Heart, now I'm the lonely one.
I was part of ev'rything he/she planned for
And I know he/she loved me at the start
Now he/she hates the sight of all I stand for
All because of you, old Jealous Heart.
Jealous Heart, why did I let you lead me
When I knew the end would bring me pain
Now he's/she's gone, he's/she's gone and found another
Oh, I'll never see my love again.
Through the years his/her memory will haunt me
Even though we're many miles apart
It's so hard to know he'll/she'll never want me
'Cause he/she heard your beating Jealous Heart.
Many times I trusted you to guide me
But your guiding only brought me tears
Why oh why must I have you inside me
Jealous Heart, for all my lonely years.
