We wait outside her window

In the shadows of the street

I know you loved her dearly

But somebody took your seat

Call upon sleeping master

Thieves and lepers roam the town 

The man who gave me nothing

Stole the daughter’s wedding gown


Takes a jealous hand to lead the blind

Takes a jealous mind to stay ahead

It’s the jealous will’s dark dead green eyes

But it’s the jealous heart to break the man


Trust me, I’m your honest man

No one else is as they seem

The devil’s dressed in golden

But your woman’s wearing green

“No one can love the drunkard”

Convincing yourself or me?

“You’re right” I tell you gently

All it takes is one small seed


Takes a jealous hand to lead the blind

Takes a jealous mind to stay ahead

It’s the jealous will’s dark dead green eyes

But it’s the jealous heart to break the man


It’s done her lights have gone out

Your sins still lie awakened

My shackles drip with cruel blood

The house all but forsaken

You played your part, you violin

Your hands still bearing regret

None left from their devices

In this tragedy I’ve set (aside)


Takes a jealous hand to lead the blind

Takes a jealous mind to stay ahead

It’s the jealous will’s dark dead green eyes

But it’s the jealous heart to break the man
