"Am I Not Yours?" as written by Gretta Mindy Cohn, Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn, Clint Frederick Schnase and Ted James Stevens....
Who's your schoolfriend?
He's left you some messages
He'd love to see you again
He thinks your ideas are brilliant
And since you've been going out
For coffee with him lately
Well, is he a pretty good looking guy?
Jealousy, am I not yours?
We stopped for some alcohol
You stayed in the car
The bars had gotten out
That line was so long
And I saw you on the pay phone
So I was thinking
Who do you ever call at one A.M.?
Yeah, I wonder who that was
Jealousy, I am not yours
We lay so stiffly
And act like we're sleeping
But my eyes are staring
And you're not breathing heavily
I know when you're sleeping
You purr so softly on my neck
Jealousy, I am

    General CommentThe cello freakout during the 3rd "Jealousy" section is one of the best Cursive moments ever.

    General Commentthis is the absolute best arrangement of words about the green eyed monster. it is so truthfull and bold and perfect and listening to it makes me almost feel angry at feelings and people that take from others emotionally. jealousy is a wicked feeling and cursive outdid themselves, again.
