Hey Jealousy

from 10 Covers by Richard Turgeon

about

This is my second cover of the Gin Blossoms work ("Found Out About You" is also available here on Bandcamp for free download).

This song and "Found Out" was written by the band's co-founder and guitar player, Doug Hopkins, who suffered from depression and sadly took his own life after being kicked out of the band for alcohol issues—just as this song and "Hey Jealousy" were hitting the top of the charts.

For more about Doug's life and the Gin Blossoms—one of the most underrated bands of the '90s—read my in-depth blog post here:

As always, thanks for listening.

lyrics

Tell me do you think it'd be all right
If I could just crash here tonight
You can see I'm no shape for driving
And anyway I've got no place to go

And you know it might not be that bad
You were the best I'd ever had
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
I might not be alone

Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place... Hey jealousy
Hey jealousy
Hey jealousy
Hey jealousy

You can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down

'Cause all I really want to be with you
Feeling like I matter too
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
I might be here with you

Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place... Hey jealousy

Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place... Hey jealousy

Hey jealousy
She took my heart
There’s only thing I can start…
