Hey Jealousy
Gin Blossoms Lyrics


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
Hey jealousy, hey jealousy
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

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
Hey jealousy, hey jealousy
Hey jealousy

Well 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

Hey jealousy, she took my heart
Well there's only one thing I couldn't start

@The Elder "Hopkins had suffered from chronic depression since childhood and had been battling alcoholism for several years. However, in 1990, the Gin Blossoms were one of the hottest local bands in Tempe and the surrounding areas, and they signed a contract with A&M Records.[2]

Hopkins was resistant to signing to a major label, feeling like its property, and reacted with stubbornness and more drinking.[5] When the band recorded its second studio album New Miserable Experience in February 1992,[2] it was reported that Hopkins was unable to stand during his recording sessions. Faced with the prospect of firing Hopkins or being dropped by A&M, the band terminated Hopkins. Doused in aftershave and mouthwash to cover the effects of his days-long drinking binge, he was flown back to Arizona.[5]

Hopkins was replaced by Scott Johnson. The band then withheld $15,000 owed to Hopkins until he agreed to sign over half of his publishing royalties. Hopkins was also required to relinquish his mechanical royalties to Johnson, his replacement. Hopkins reluctantly agreed to these demands because of his dire financial situation."

The band fired him and cut him out because he was showing up to recording sessions so plastered he couldn't even stand up. AM Records was threatening to drop the band. They had no choice.

Now why they withheld the 15k I don't know, and neither do You, as no actual information on that front is recorded.

Remember, your opinion dies not make something a true fact.

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

If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down

The older I get, the harder it is to reconnect with that feeling of blissful happiness that came with being a kid.
But a song can open that door for just a second and fill my heart with a gust of happiness I thought long gone. Even if it’s only for a moment, sometimes a moment is all you need.

Justin Brooks

The most well spoken comment I have heard in a long time. This music speaks to a lot of good people.

Mikey James

yup when you degrade the brain goes with everything else...the spark is gone but the fire still burns in some of us

Really? I've heard a few of their songs, and each and every one of them are really, really depressing, including this one. That's not a bad thing. Emotion makes music special. But I've yet to hear anything remotely close to happy song from them.

As a black kid growing up in the US this is the song where I said, "fuck you if you think I'm not black enough! This song is art!"

Corey Messick

Cussing on the Internet for attention isn’t anywhere near art.
