Lyrics

I'm embarrassed to confess
I am a jealous girlfriend
I want you to belong to me
But I think they'd call that jealousy

I never say a word
In case I come off needy
I never say a word
Leave you before you leave me

What is taking over me? Jealousy
A bubbling inside of me, it's jealousy
Controlling me, it's coming after me
It's so easy when you don't belong to me

Is it you or is it me?
When you talk about beauty
Makes me feel so ugly
But I think they'd call that jealousy

I never say a word
In case I come off needy
I never say a word
Leave you before you leave me

What is taking over me? Jealousy
A bubbling inside of me, it's jealousy
Controlling me, it's coming after me
It's so easy when you don't belong to me

I think I'm fine, I think I'm tough
Until I go and fall in love
I always try hard to conceal
But the more I hide the worse I feel

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, jealousy
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, jealousy

What is taking over me? Jealousy
A bubbling inside of me, it's jealousy
Controlling me, it's coming after me
It's so easy when you don't belong to me

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, jealousy
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, it's jealousy
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, jealousy
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, it's jealousy
