jane fakes a hug
she throws herself down on the rug
what's wrong?
my dragging days are whipping long
i can't go on
time chained friendless
oh jane i thought
let's end this
i'd tell her more my thinking
but she'd just stare back blinking
can't find attraction hate our new house
she don't get
she don't get my work
jane's made me flirt
in fact i've met this girl, annette
i made a pass my life's a crumbled mess
i took the girl's address
she just broke up with paul and i think jane knows her
boredom crept up and found me
temptation follows mounts me
our oaths, our reality, a good job, a husband
a husband or what
christ, jane, i'm not, i never was
she turns, spits out
"we're done, get out
i wanna say good luck
but i don't wanna hold you up
you bastard, son of dirt
can't picture our house without you"
two aprils go
i'd offer all to god on high
tell why i got this far with none for wife
this charming life
i can't un-jane me
she married paul that fall
aprils ago

    General CommentThis is the saddest song I can think of. It always makes me want to cry, especially the high part where he sings "Husband / A husband or what? / Christ, Jane, I'm not / I never was"..... it's nothing short of heartwrenching.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song. It actually sounds like the singer's crying most of the time. The last verse (from 'i wanna say good luck' on) is just gutwrenching. The Wrens write the best breakup songs!
