"Jealousy" is a cover song by LorD and Master, originally by Pet Shop Boys, from their album, Behaviour. When asked what the song is about, Neil Tennant once replied dryly, "it's about jealousy". //Jealousy// was the first song Pet Shop Boys wrote together in 1981.
At dead of night When strangers roam The streets in search of anyone Who'll take them home I lie alone The clock strikes three And anyone who wanted to Could contact me At dead of night Till break of day Endless thoughts and question Keep me awake It's much too late Where've you been? Who've you seen? You didn't phone when you said you would Do you lie? Do you try To keep in touch You know you could I've tried to see your point of view Could not hear or see for jealousy I never knew Time passed so slow I wish I'd never met you Or that I could bear to let you go At dead of night Till break of day Endless thoughts and questions Keep me awake It's much too late Not poppy Nor mandragora Nor all the drowsy syrups of the East Shall ever medicine me to that sweet sleep Sweet sleep Which thou owedst yesterday I never knew Till I met you
