Video Premiere: Labrinth - Jealous

Labrinth returns with an emotional visual for his brand-new single "Jealous". The song was written by Labrinth (real name Timothy McKenzie) together with Josh Kear and Natalie Hemby in Nashville, Tennessee. The heart-breaking piano ballad serves as the second single from the 25-year-old English singer-songwriter's upcoming second studio album, 'Take Me to the Truth', set for early 2015 release via Syco Music. Both the song and the video are very personal in nature as they are directed at Labrinth's father who left the family when he was a 4-year-old boy.

Labrinth gets emotional while sitting in a chair during what appears to be a psychotherapy session in the music video directed by Sophie Muller. The clip is a real tear-jerker!

While you watch the visual for "Jealous" below, you can scroll through the lyrics and follow along for a karaoke-like experience.

Lyrics to Jealous by Labrinth

[Verse 1]
I'm jealous of the rain
That falls upon your skin
It's closer than my hands have been
I'm jealous of the rain
I'm jealous of the wind
That ripples through your clothes
It's closer than your shadow
Oh, I'm jealous of the wind, cause

[Chorus]
I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back, tell me all you found was
Heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

[Verse 2]
I'm jealous of the nights
That I don't spend with you
I'm wondering who you lay next to
Oh, I'm jealous of the nights
I'm jealous of the love
Love that was in here
Gone for someone else to share
Oh, I'm jealous of the love, cause

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
As I sink in the sand
Watch you slip through my hands
Oh, as I die here another day
Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

[Chorus]

[Outro]
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me
