Jet Black and Jealous
by Eli Young Band



No you never were one for resting easy were ya
So much that when they told me how you left us here behind
That I didn’t even bat an eye believing
In words I should have said to make you stay but couldn’t find
I just hoped that road would one day watch you walk right back to me
‘Till then I’ll be
Jet black and jealous
And I’ll dare not let ‘em know that now you’re gone
How I’ll still be a fool for the way we used to be
I just keep laughin’ out loud and play along
As if I traded you for one the way you traded me
‘Cause with your beat up bag and your laced up shoes
You walked right out the door
And I hit the floor
Jet black and jealous

Chorus:
Tell me how was I to know
Tell me how can I let go
Well I know wherever you are tonight
You look just like a queen
Stealing the scene
Jet black and jealous
And I bet by now you’re rolling through Pittsburgh
Watching the rain in passing headlights
From some roadside corner booth
Still smiling ‘bout the choices that you made
Hoping the clouds are breaking up ahead
Skies blue instead of grey
But if you get out there and you find
That it’s not what you thought it be, remember me
Jet black and jealous

Repeat Chorus

Yeah if you get out there and you find
That it’s not what you thought it’d be, come back to me
Tell me how
Tell me how was I to know
Tell me how was I to know
