Jealous

21 Oct

The pre-song interview pretty much says it all; and aside from the line in the chorus that says, “But I always thought you’d come back, tell me all you found was Heartbreak and misery”, well the rest of the lyrics speak a very uncomfortable truth. I miss my children and I am desperately jealous to know they are happy without me. Not that I’d want them to be unhappy – and certainly not that I’d want heaven to be anything less than all I hope it will be, but I find myself jealous that heaven has their sunshine and I do not.

On this, the day after my youngest daughter’s birthday, this song seems especially appropriate as the following (partial) lyrics testify:

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There’s nothing to forgive
As I sink in the sand
Watch you slip through my hands
Oh, as I die here another day
Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

It’s hard for me to say,
I’m jealous of the way
You’re happy without me
It’s hard for me to say,
I’m jealous of the way
You’re happy without me
