"Hey Jealousy" as written by and Doug Hopkins....
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
Anyway I've got no place to go

And you know it might not be that bad
You were the best I've 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

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

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
Anyway I've got no place to go

And you know it might not be that bad
You were the best I've 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

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

She took my heart
There's only one thing I couldn't start

    General CommentObviously in the song it's like he's talking to his ex.
    About how he wishes he hadn't fucked everything up in their relationship. Kinda like asking her if there is any way he can have another chance. Because he knows she was the best he'd ever have. And since she was gone he's been lonely as shit.

    General CommentI really like how they flipped the arrangement around, instead of just copying the song.

    General CommentHit the Lights did an amazing job of covering this song, i think this version is wayyy better than the original. not knocking what the Gin Blossoms did but Hit the Lights did a way better job. they completely switched the sound around...great song.
