Tell me do you think it'd be all right
If I could just crash here tonight
You can see I'm in no shape for driving
And anyway I've got no place to go
And you know it might not be that bad
You were the best I'd ever had
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
I might not be alone

Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place... Hey jealousy
And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down

'Cause all I really want is to be with you
Feeling like I matter too
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
I might be here with you

Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place... Hey jealousy
And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down

Gin Blossoms

Gin Blossoms are an American pop rock band formed in 1987 in Tempe, Arizona. They broke out with the song "Hey Jealousy" from their successful major label debut, New Miserable Experience (1992), but this achievement was coupled with the firing and eventual suicide of the song's author and band co-founder Doug Hopkins, prompting the title of their followup album, Congratulations I'm Sorry (1996). After a series of charting singles, the band broke up in 1997. After they reunited in 2002 they released a fourth album, Major Lodge Victory, in 2006, and their fifth, No Chocolate Cake, in 2010. more »
