SHAKE HANDS WITH ENVY

Would you be angry if I said I never wished for anything
Would you be saddened if that time never meant a thing

I’ve never wished upon a star
While laying on the hood of a lover’s car
I only remind you because you smile
And I love to see you happy, even for a little while

But now you’re angry
And you’re going to sleep early
Someone better turn on the dark ‘cause I’m afraid of the light
And I’d hate to see what’s happening on the other side of the room

You know, I never thought I’d meet jealousy
Never been the kind to shake hands with envy
But you just had to introduce him to me
That is the man I never wanted to be

But you bring him out in me all of the time
Yes, you bring him out in me
That is the man I never wanted to be
But you always seem to bring out envy in me

Would you be angry if I tried to apologize in bed
Would you be saddened if I laid down with you instead

You know, I never thought I’d meet jealousy
Never been the kind to shake hands with envy
But you just had to introduce him to me
That is the man I never wanted to be

But you bring him out in me all of the time
Yes, you bring him out in me
That is the man I never wanted to be
But you always seem to bring out envy in me

By this, I mean me and you
Is there room under there for two
Is the blanket big enough for you
Well than, hell, it’s big enough for me too
