Well I wrote your name and burned it,
to see the color of the flame,
and it burned out the whole spectrum as if you were everything,
mine just burned gold,
a normal flame,
I am not anything,
and all that I remember is the feeling of waking up,
when we were kids you were the sun to which my eyes would not adjust,
when we were kids I was a fountain you could never drink enough,
then came all the boys who swept you up,
played careless with your heart,
and every night there was a new girl sitting beside me in my car,
something dies when you grow older,
but you do the best you can,
I am glad,
I am glad,
you found a good man.

    General Comment:No he's not jealous at all I don't think.
    When they were kids (which pobably wasn't that long ago which show he's mature alot i guess)they loved each other, but it was an innocent love, not the kinda love that was: "every night there was a new girl sitting beside me in my car," and so they grew apart and he probably ran into her again lately and she's married and has kids and stuff and leads a great life, that why she's everthing, and since he's has none of these he's "not anything" I don't think he's as jealous as he is sad that things can't be like it was when they were young and innocent.
    Or at least that's how I see it, everyone probably has their own interpretation, that the beauty of music and this website
