lyrics

Why does she creep round my thoughts
Like a parasite she eats me
From the inside out, there's no doubt
She'll be the end of who I wanted to be
Girl with the sad eyes
Like a ball and chain, she won't release mine
Give me a chance
To snap out of this trance
Get rid of the name that's haunting me

Jess
Girl who's down the street
Jess
Why did we ever meet?
The one who's after my heart
Killed me from the start
Jess
She tears me apart
Jess

A tall glass of something else
She looked like a drink I would enjoy
Oh man, did I fall for her concocted plan
And my doubts a sip would destroy
Hands, so pale a fragile
Always held under
A cotton threat, to put my suspicion to bed
But what lies lay covered?

Jess
Girl who's down the street
Jess
Why did we ever meet?
The one who's after my heart
Killed me from the start
Jess
She tears me apart
Jess

Pain, to the self-medicate
Beautiful girl has to hurt to relate
In the end, how could I ever forget?
The woman I watched slip away

Pain, to the self-medicate
Watching, and hoping it will all be ok
In the end, things will work out
Or so I have to believe

Jess
Girl who's down the street
Jess
Why did we ever meet?
She's after my heart
Killed me from the start
Jess
She tears me apart

Jess
Girl who's down the street
Jess
Why did we ever meet?
Jess
She's after my heart
Jess
She tears me apart

Jess
Girl who's down the street
Jess
Why did we ever meet?
She's after my heart
Killed me from the start
Jess
She tears me apart
Jess

Tears me apart, yeah
She's killed me from the start, yeah
She killed me from the start, Jess
She won't let go of me now
Please just let go of me
