Envy – Zelena Hull


Envy

 

A somber pop song who’s lyrics speaks volumes. Many of us want bits and pieces of others that we can never have. There are aspects of ourselves that we want to change, but we really can’t. Social media has warped the perception of what we and our lives should look like. Sometimes it’s more than just the appearance and live of someone else we want; we want their strength, able body, and power.

lyrics:

I envy the power, the feeling, the rush
I envy the strength of your touch
But I can’t help feeling jealous
No matter how much you love me

It always seemed like you had everything
Like nothing had never gone wrong
I look at my body, and my skin
and something troubles me from deep within

But I can’t help thinking, what’s the comparison.
I don’t know where it all began
All the lies that keep me awake
My dreams broken and bonds about to break

I envy the power, the feeling, the rush
I envy the strength of your touch
But I can’t help feeling jealous
No matter how much you love me

Why can’t I be like you?
It all seems so wasted
But I couldn’t do any better
I can’t tear this feeling away

I wish I could of been born in your flesh
All I’ve ever felt is unrest
A hollow deep within my soul
Has all but taken it’s toll

I envy the power, the feeling, the rush
I envy the strength of your touch
But I can’t help feeling jealous
No matter how much you love me

I envy the power, the feeling, the rush
I envy the strength of your touch
But I can’t help feeling jealous
No matter how much I love you
