Jealous Lyrics
Jump to:
I don't like the way he's looking at you
I'm starting to think you want him too
Am I crazy, have I lost ya?
Even though I know you love me, can't help it

I turn my cheek music up
And I'm puffing my chest
I'm getting red in the face
You can call me obsessed
It's not your fault that they hover
I mean no disrespect
It's my right to be hellish
I still get jealous

'Cause you're too sexy, beautiful
And everybody wants a taste
That's why (that's why)
I still get jealous

'Cause you're too sexy, beautiful
And everybody wants a taste
That's why (that's why)
I still get jealous

I wish you didn't have to post it all
I wish you'd save a little bit just for me
Protective or possessive, yeah
Call it passive or aggressive

I turn my cheek music up
And I'm puffing my chest
I'm getting red in the face
You can call me obsessed
It's not your fault that they hover
I mean no disrespect
It's my right to be hellish
I still get jealous

'Cause you're too sexy, beautiful
And everybody wants a taste
That's why (that's why)
I still get jealous

'Cause you're too sexy, beautiful
And everybody wants a taste
That's why (that's why)
I still get jealous

You're the only one invited
I said there's no one else for you
'Cause you know I get excited, yeah
When you get jealous too

I turn my cheek music up
And I'm puffing my chest
I'm turning red in the face
You can call me obsessed
It's not your fault that they hover
I mean no disrespect
It's my right to be hellish
I still get jealous

'Cause you're too sexy, beautiful
And everybody wants a taste
That's why (that's why)
I still get jealous

'Cause you're too sexy, beautiful
And everybody wants a taste
That's why (that's why)
I still get jealous

Oh (that's why)
I still get jealous
Oh (that's why)
I still get jealous

Jealous Info:

• Nick Jonas said this song was inspired by his training to be a fighter for DirecTV's 'Kingdom'. He said: "I was out with my girlfriend (Olivia Culpo) the night before I wrote this song… and I got heated. I was doing all this fighting training for this show I just finished up, so I was ready to go. I contained myself... and I came in the next day to the studio and wrote this song."

• "Basically the whole concept is about jealousy. It's basically saying this girl is so f*cing beautiful that you just get jealous and you can't help it and I think it's something a lot of guys can relate to but are afraid to say."

Music video:
"Jealous" on YouTube

The video was released September 16th, 2014 and shot by Peter Tunney.

Talking about the video Nick said: "The video is basically a trip into the mind of Nick Jonas by way of stream of consciousness. So the director, Peter, he said 'I think if you asked someone right now, 'Who is Nick Jonas?' I think you’d get a million different answers. After having the chance to get to know you, I feel like none of them would really be right because you are so different than the public perception. So let’s get inside your mind because this song is very personal even though it’s fun. It’s kind of a dance song in a way. But let’s dig a little deeper and see what it means to you.'

So the video is really layered, like his art. You can see he layers a bunch of different news clippings and articles and says something greater over top of it. The video is the same way. The real message is that jealousy is something we all feel from all different walks of life, whether it’s about romance or love or family or whatever it is - insecurities. It touches on all that and also has sort of a fun through line with me and Olivia is actually in the video as well"
