JEALOUS TIME
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1998 YUMMY POP TUNES / PENNYBARK MUSIC (ASCAP)


I KNOW YOU'RE SEEING HIM
WITH YOUR PARLOR EYES
AND YOUR PAPER PROMISES INKED WITH SECRECY
I'M NOT BLIND
TO YOUR VANISHING ACT
OR YOUR THIN DISGUISE
CAUSE YOU'RE SO TRANSPARENT
I CAN SEE HIS SHADOW
THROUGH YOUR EYES

WHO'S TO SAY THAT TWO CAN'T PLAY
SO LET THE GAMES BEGIN
I BET YOU WON'T LIKE THE SOUR TASTE
OF YOUR OWN MEDICINE
LET THE PUNISHMENT FIT THE CRIME
CAUSE THIS IS JEALOUS TIME

WHILE YOU'VE BEEN SEEING HIM
I'VE BEEN OCCUPIED
WITH ANOTHER DALLIANCE BORN OF JEALOUSY
SO UNKIND
OH HOW I FOOL MYSELF
IN THIS WAGE OF CHANCE
TO BELIEVE THE LIE I LOVE
ONLY TO WATCH IT SLIP
THROUGH MY HANDS

(CHORUS)

BUT YOU KNOW EVENTUALLY
OUR FILTHY BAGGAGE
WILL FACE THE BRIGHTEST DAY
AND THE FAITH WE MASSACRED
WON'T BE WORTH THE COIN
WE FOUND WE PAID

I KNOW YOU'RE SEEING HIM
WITH YOUR PARLOR EYES
AND YOUR PAPER PROMISES INKED WITH SECRECY
I'M NOT BLIND

WHO'S TO SAY THAT TWO CAN'T PLAY
A GAME THAT TWO CAN'T WIN
A GAMBLE GREATER THAN THE RISK
OF LOSING EVERYTHING
LET STUPIDITY TAKE MY PRIDE
CAUSE THIS IS JEALOUS TIME
