You never were one for resting easy were ya
So much that when they told me how you left us here behind
I didn't even bat an eye to leavin
And words I should have said to make you stay but couldn't find
I just hope that road will one day watch you walk right back to me
Till then I'll be, jet black and jealous

And I'll dare not let em know that now you're gone
I'll still be a fool for the way we used to be
I'll just keep laughing out loud and play along
As if I traded you for one the way you traded me
Cause with your beat up bag and your laced up shoes you walked right out the door
And I hit the floor, jet black and jealous

[Chorus]
Tell me how was I to know
Tell me how could I let go
When I know where you are tonight, you look just like a queen
Still in the scene, jet black and jealous

And I bet by now you're rolling through Pittsburgh
Watching the rain and passing headlights from some roadside corner booth
Still smiling bout the choices that you made
Hoping the clouds are breaking up ahead, skies blue instead of gray
But if you get out there and you find that it's not what you thought it'd be
Remember me, jet black and jealous

[Chorus]

Ya if you get out there and you find it's not what you thought it'd be, come back to me

Tell me how

Tell me how was I to know
Tell me how was I to know
