"So jealous" as written by Anthony Whiting and Lisa Mitchell....
I'm sitting on this bed i may as well be on the highway
Ocean bursts its banks and all the water's going my way
Even though you're poison babe i wouldn't even hesitate
There's a lie inside your head, inside your little heart now

Well listen nothing fits and nothing rings a bell in my head
lighting up the fire and the city's painted blood red
Even though you're poison babe i wouldn't even hesitate
Just let it go, i just, i gotta get away now

I was so jealous
I nearly ran away
i was so jealous
i really couldn't say
What was wrong with me
i had some bad disease
i was so sick for you babe

Well i didn't mean to break it i was just having a look
oh, i know i shouldn't touch, i should have never picked it up
but even though you're poison babe i wouldn't even hesitate
just let me go, i just, i got another chance now

I was so jealous
I nearly ran away
i was so jealous
i really couldn't say
What was wrong with me
i had some bad disease
i was so sick for you babe

So underneath the street lights
Oh i found your broken penknife
no, i don't wanna ask what
What you're doing by the wayside
ohhh

I was so jealous
I nearly ran away
i was so jealous
i really couldn't say
What was wrong with me
i had some bad disease
i was so sick for you babe

I was so jealous
I nearly ran away
i was so jealous
i really couldn't say
What was wrong with me
i had some bad disease
i was so sick for you babe

    General CommentWhen her album was being played on triple J, lisa told the listeners this song was about her being jealous of another band, who had hit the big time, and she was still wondering along..
    they're still her friends, and she was jealous at the time, but she was also happy for them..
    she had a laugh saying that the band sort of knew the song was about them, she was embarrassed but it turned out to be a wonderful song..

    General Commenti've been through this song entirely:
    basically i dated a guy a year or so ago who was older than me and had 10x more experience, and while i really liked him i was jealous of everything he'd done and so surmounted everything around me and did A LOT of bad bad bad things to be like him. the jealousy and my attraction led me to do this. "Some bad disease" "so sick for you, babe". it was a time of tons of distress and self-hate and depression for me...

    eventually we broke up.

    a few months ago i met up with him and found out and he was just TRASH-- and i'm not being bitter, i swear, -- ;he was absolutely worth nothing at all, dropped out of school and didn't give one fuck about anything, not doing any work or even trying to better his life. he thought he was a vampire, genuinely. he thought he was a vampire and figured he couldn't get along with the rest of the world...don't fucking ask me.

    anyway, I found his "broken pen-knife" (his broken pride, his destroyed self-worth) and I wasn't even gonna ask what he was doing by the wayside, in such shit conditions...

    you see, now? great music, love everything about this song + lisa for having made it!
