What About Jane?

Print songSend correction to the songSend new songfacebooktwitterwhatsapp


Child of misfortune, victim of the rat race
Waiting in a chair that now she calls her home
She sits there all alone
Wheel you to a section, feed you by a number
Turn the other way and where's the grace of God?
This God we call our own

Such a dismal picture gazing out a window
Thinking of your life and where the hell it's gone
The world keeps moving on

It's only love she wants, but we ain't got the time
She's such a pretty girl
Can't you hear her when she cries?

What about Jane?
Won't you look into her eyes
She's much too young to die
Why can't you see the pain
What about Jane?

Father of the symphony
Will you play your song and comfort me?
My only wish, don't want to die alone
Child of the promised land
Will you touch my soul? Will you take my hand?
And after all is said and done, we'll go on

It's only love she wants, but we ain't got the time
She's such a pretty girl
Can't you hear her when she cries?

What about Jane?
Won't you look into her eyes
She's much too young to die
Why can't you see the pain?
What about Jane?
