Verse 1

I told myself I'm cool with her, no, really.

Promised myself I'd control my insecurity.

But my months can't possibly measure up to her years.

So just tonight, I'm allowed to have to fight my tears.

You look good together, I have a right to be upset, okay?

I'll try to be stronger some other day.

Pre Chorus

But tonight I'm just breaking down,

To the tunes of the world snoring while I go numb.

I'm jealous but I trust you completely,

And I'm hoping life doesn't prove that I'm dumb.

Because

Chorus

They say pictures tell tales,

Yeah, I can see it very well.

I can see you standing with her, wearing your happy smile,

My heart drops to the cold hard marble tiles.

And of course my jealousy swells.

They say pictures tell tales,

I don't even have to look far.

It's a different body language when you're with her,

And I wish I didn't, but I'm hearing alarms,

I wish I could unsee you grazing arms,

And from what I can see, possibly knee.

And I realize it's never been that way with me.

Verse 2

I don't have a single thing against her, she's sweet.

We'd bond if we ever stumbled across the streets.

But I never dated someone who's friends with an old flame.

Maybe it's all in my head, I'm the only one to blame.

But how you never bring up love doesn't really help either.

And yet I want you to stay close to her.

Pre Chorus

But tonight I'm just breaking down,

To the tunes of the world snoring while I go numb.

I'm jealous but I trust you completely,

And I'm hoping life doesn't prove that I'm dumb.

Because

Chorus

They say pictures tell tales,

Yeah, I can see it very well.

I can see you standing with her, wearing your happy smile,

My heart drops to the cold hard marble tiles.

And of course my jealousy swells.

They say pictures tell tales,

I don't even have to look far.

It's a different body language when you're with her,

And I wish I didn't, but I'm hearing alarms,

I wish I could unsee you grazing arms,

And from what I can see, possibly knee.

And I realize it's never been that way with me.
