"A Complete History Of Sexual Jealousy"

[ from the album "Slender Sherbet" (1995) ]

Lyrics

I'm jealous of the people the people I fall in love with
Fall in love with
I'm jealous of the people the people I try to be more like
Try to be more like
I'm even jealous of the people the people who hate me
Hate more
A Complete History of Sexual Jealousy Parts 17 to 24

I'm jealous of the man the man you broke the heart of
Broke the heart of
I'm jealous of the men you knew before
In a life that I can never be a part of
There's more than meets the eye
In the way a stranger meets your eye, I know there's more
A Complete History of Sexual Jealousy Parts 17 to 24

If looks could kill I'd kill the men
Whose looks would kill you if looks could kill
And the men who say "no competition"
Know the competition love instils
I'm jealous of the people who ask you to ask me "Who's keeping score?"
In a Complete History of Sexual Jealousy the scores are 17 to 24

Hey hey hey, hi hi hi
Am I in your way?
Hey hey hey, hi hi hi
Can't you feel how you're killing my pride?
I die every day

I'm jealous of the dangling men
You know you'll never go to bed with
I've felt the fire that fires them
I've known the unrequited love it's fed with
And I don't believe in Platonic love
But I'm still jealous of Plato
What a bore!
A Complete History of Sexual Jealousy Parts 17 to 24

Come into my arms my lover, let me be your sanctuary
Come into my arms my lover, where you no longer have to look at me
You've been stupid enough to love someone who's hurt you a lot
I'll hurt you more
A Complete History of Sexual Jealousy Parts 17 .....
A Complete History of Complete Promiscuity Parts 17 .....
I'm writing the book on Fury and Infidelity Parts 17 to 24

If you really love me you must love my insecurity
If you really love me, take lovers
If you really love me you must really love my jealousy
If you really love me, love the others

If you really love me you must love my insecurity
If you really love me, take lovers
If you really love me you must really love my jealousy
If you really love me, love the others

If you really love me you must love my insecurity
If you really love me, take lovers
If you really love me you must really love my jealousy
If you really love me, love the others

If you really love me you must love my insecurity
If you really love me, take lovers
If you really love me you must really love my jealousy
If you really love me, love the others

Love the others
Love the others

Love the others
