Today’s song prompt is “Tenerife Sea” by Ed Sheeran.
“Tenerife Sea” – Ed Sheeran
He looked at her, in her awful dress; he —
Told her, the way her hair fell was pretty.
He never noticed me, my jealousy.
All he saw was her; their love made him witty.
He was joyful around her, said forget —
Lies people tell, talking behind their back.
Envious I spread more discord, I was set —
To move in; that Beth, she was such a brat.
He liked me first, but then he saw sweet Beth,
Told her: “If she’s the last thing he should see–
He wouldn’t be sad, forget or regret;
[I bawled] she was all he would ever need.”
Her eyes were the the blue of the Tenerife Sea,
Envy upset me; he loved Beth —not me.
