About Jealous Guy

"Jealous Guy" is a song by English rock musician John Lennon from his 1971 album Imagine. Lennon began writing the song in 1968, when, as "Child of Nature", it was among the many songs demoed by the Beatles before they recorded their self-titled double album (also known as the "White Album"). The lyrics were originally inspired by a lecture given by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in early 1968, when the Beatles attended his spiritual retreat in Rishikesh, India. In its rewritten form, the song serves as a confessional in which Lennon addresses the feelings of inadequacy that resulted in his failings as a lover and husband. "Jealous Guy" is one of the most commonly recorded Lennon songs, with at least 92 cover versions. Released as a single, Roxy Music's version reached number one in several countries three months after Lennon's death in December 1980.

I was dreaming of the past
And my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control
I began to lose control
I didn't mean to hurt you 
I'm sorry that I made you cry
I didn't mean to hurt you 
I'm just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure 
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside

I didn't mean to hurt you 
I'm sorry that I made you cry
I didn't want to hurt you 
I'm just a jealous guy

I was trying to catch your eye
I thought that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain

I didn't mean to hurt you 
I'm sorry that I made you cry
I didn't mean to hurt you 
I'm just a jealous guy
