Phair, Liz - Jealousy Lyrics




He's got a million dollar car
He's got a thirty-seven year old guitar
He's got a family who deals heroin,
you're on the edge of your chair and then
You feel it
He's looking at you
He's laughing at you
It's happening.

I can't, I can't believe it.
But it's here on the pages I'm reading
It's all I can do to conceal my feelings of jealousy... jealousy...

I know it's just a drawer of photographs
They're ex-girlfriends, I try to remember that
I don't wanna look, but I'm already hooked on jealousy... jealousy...

I can't believe you had a life before me
I can't believe they let you run around free
Just putting your body wherever it seemed like a good idea
What a good idea...

Standing
On the corner
Watching
The ladies
Pass by
Imagining me behind your eyes
And then what did I see?
I saw hips, I saw thighs
I saw secret positions that we never try
I saw jealousy
I saw jealousy
I can't, I can't believe it
But it's here in this place and I see it
It's all I can do to conceal my feelings of jealousy... jealousy...

Standing
On the mud flats
Watching
The salmon
Fly
Wonder if I'll ever bury the hatchet inside.
Imagining me behind your eyes
And then what did I see?
I saw hips, I saw thighs
I saw secret positions that we never try
I saw jealousy
I saw jealousy

I can't believe you had a life before me
I can't believe they let you run around free
Just putting your body wherever it seemed like a good idea
What a good idea...

Phair, Liz Jealousy Comments
  1. Kurtis Smith

    i got whip-smart when it came out, but I had literally no clue this song had a video until now.

  2. Brian Jules

    Liz Phair > Courtney Love

  3. TheDestroyer2alltrolls

    She's hot and a wonderful singer and musician.

  4. Adam Moody

    Powerful Joe Rogan brought me here.

  5. Ramon Sarobé

    I would sell all my family for her.

  6. peg pollard

    this is one of the best songs I have  EVER heard.  Liz is the fuckin' bomb.  One of my fave 2 songwriters EVER.   This one  is a favorite out of about 87 Liz Phair favorites!!

  7. Speranza Tikvah

    I swear, I grew up to Liz Phair's first two albums....they bring back things I'd forgotten.

  8. Andrew Colin

    She's so damn hot.

  9. astronomical13

    Why the hell did she have to start making shit pop music? Her old stuff was so much better.

  10. miked4309

    liz is so sexy.

  11. 1thepner

    Damn, I wish there was music around today (2016) LIKE THIS.  Great video, girl squad w/Liz going after the guy on the run.  Classic look!

  12. GaryO

    is it my imagination or was that Urge Overkill's Nash Kato blowing a smoke ring ?

  13. Douglas Needham

    Love her!

  14. ShehnilaS

    honestly one of my all-time favourite music videos

  15. metal guru61

    The 'Whip Smart' album confirms there is more to Liz Phair than sexy come-ons or calculated feminist messages. Rather than an icon, she is an individual and you can find her on each of the songs.

    cockney gyal

    metal guru61 she writes her own songs ....go compare

  16. MrAdia29

    she's damn hot!!

  17. Christopher Cecil

    The riff at 2:02 is pure rock n roll. Love it!!!

  18. hotgirlsarehot

    A little?! She is off the map IMO. I listen to her newer songs and can't even tell it is from her.

  19. Superissyful

    The girls in the video are Elizabeth DeCicco, Pilar Biggers (Sanders), and Christina. Liz rocks.

  20. tattoofthesun

    i love these videos where there's all this shit goin on in every other second and Liz is playin guitar in some starry greenscreen land. also at the end of this song-- Zeppelin from the end of When the Levee Breaks it sounds like a sample which makes her and this song even cooler

  21. KEEP CALM and PLAY SOCCER IN YOUR PAJAMAS

    Thanks so much for posting this! Love to see some new videos from her.

  22. rohgenextfan

    @squamish4244 Maybe because no one cares about the Black Eyed Peas? I certainly don't.

  23. L0un9ePunk

    @squamish4244
    I hear you... but while the critics are soft on the BEP, we on the ground level are not amused, not buying their music, definitely not playing it at our parties and changing the station whenever they happen upon our radios and TVs. I was at a party where an 8 year old was sent off in tears after his dad tried to slip some BEP in the party rotation.

  24. Júlia Summers

    Liiz I love You ♥

  25. rohgenextfan

    @squamish4244 People still listen to the Black Eyed Peas?

  26. valar

    @SebastianSolorzano I thought the backlash was way over the top and probably worse because of her gender...IMO. The Black Eyed Peas totally sold out in every conceivable way and their lyrics are horrible but nobody seems to care?!?

  27. okrabay

    she has those fuck me eyes and the perfect blow job mouth.

  28. Remeday

    Jeez I love Liz. This song is so good. Liz phair is such a talented musician. She is in my top 3 artists for sure. This video rocks, this album rocks. Liz I thank you for putting out such wonderful music!

  29. cirrusflier5

    The Led Zepplin riff at the end it totally EPIC!

  30. Shane Darling

    whack sound

  31. Exilemainstreet

    I still think about the "secret positions" part.

  32. cirrusflier5

    badass, innovative, so ahead of its time. Really bridges the 70's ( the Led Zep riff at the end) with the 80's (the storyline) and the 90's (the graphics) Bravo!

  33. TerranMeUp

    yo the 90's fuckin rocked

  34. dirtyje

    I love her thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much
