Verse 1

You want to take me down,

Bury me six feet under the ground.

You're doing everything that you can.

But I don't get it, I just can't understand.

Pre-chorus

What did I ever do to make you hate me with such intensity?

Was I rude? Was I cruel? Or is it just plain old jealousy?

Chorus

Jealousy is a fire

And you're the one burning in it, not me.

The dark toxic flames

Have completely engulfed you, can't you see?

Jealousy is a fire

That's burning the good in you, not me.

Jealousy is harming you, not me.

Verse 2

You have sunk far too low,

You want to hurt me blow by blow.

You must have lost the ability to feel.

Maybe you sold your conscience to the Devil.

Pre-chorus

But what did I ever do to make you hate me with such intensity?

Was I rude? Was I cruel? Or is it just plain old jealousy?

Chorus

Jealousy is a fire

And you're the one burning in it, not me.

The dark toxic flames

Have completely engulfed you, can't you see?

Jealousy is a fire

That's burning the good in you, not me.

Jealousy is harming you, not me.

Bridge

I still remember

How you'd slap me on my back suddenly from behind,

It would hurt my spine so much, my eyes would go blind,

And I would jump up with a start.

I still remember

All your cruel, sharp, polished, hurtful words and taunts

About each and every little thing I did, yes, they still haunt

And pierce right through my heart…

I was just looking back and remembering everything.

So I wrote you a song, even though you can't hear me sing.

And I want you to know that

Chorus

Jealousy is a fire

And you're the one burning in it, not me.

The dark toxic flames

Have completely engulfed you, can't you see?

Jealousy is a fire

That's burning the good in you, not me.

Jealousy is harming you, not me.

Outro

What did I ever do to make you hate me with such intensity?

I wasn't rude, I wasn't cruel, it must be plain old jealousy.
