I was dreaming of the past
and my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control

I didn’t mean to hurt you
I’m sorry that I made you cry
Oh my, I didn’t want to hurt you
I’m just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside

I thought that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain
I didn’t mean to hurt you
I’m sorry that I made you cry
Oh my, I didn’t want to hurt you
I’m just a jealous guy

Watch out, baby, I’m just a jealous guy
Look out, baby, I’m just a jealous guy
