Jealously - Lori McKenna

I know jealousy is a terrible roommate
I know judgment's a hard friend
I have seen the look of anger
Again and again and again
I want to be warm and happy
Don't want to find myself cold
I want to feel so young and pretty
But I feel so old

Preacher says to love thy neighbor
Listen to the sound of the prophecy
Should others reap the fruit of your favor
You won't find yourself tormented by jealousy

Well I love my sister
I love my brothers too
Don't want to feel myself
Holding resentment towards you

Preacher says to love thy neighbor
Listen to the sound of the prophecy
Should others reap the fruit of your labor
You won't find yourself tormented by jealousy
Sweet jealousy

Loneliness is a horrible lover
And hatred can't fill your soul
But it creates for you this illusion
That you are whole
And greed is a good ambition
But passion will treat you right
I want to live my life by love and appetite

Preacher says to love thy neighbor
Listen to the sound of the prophecy
Should others reap the fruit of your favor
You won't find yourself... tormented by jealousy

Jealousy is a terrible roommate
Judgment is a hard hard hard hard hard friend
It's a hard friend
It's a hard friend
