"Jane" as written by and Ben Folds....
Jane be Jane
You're better that way
Not when your trying
Imitating something you think you saw

Jane be Jane
And if sometimes that might
Drive them away
Let them stay there
You don't need them anyway

You're worried there might not be
Anything at all inside
That you're worried
Should tell you that's not right
Don't try to see yourself
The way that others do
It's no use

You're worried there might not be
Anything at all inside
But that you're worried
Should tell you that's not right
You've had it harder than anyone could know
So hard to let it go

But its your life
You can decorate it
As you like
Beneath the pain and Armour
In your eyes the truth still shines

Jane be Jane
Jane be Jane

    General CommentI love this song, it is no doubt one of my favorites. It's just telling a girl to be herself, not to care about what everyone else think of her. Even if they don't like you, don't worry because if they can't see how great you are "you don't need them anyway." And don't try to see yourself through someone else's eyes, because you won't see the truth, you'll just see everything that's wrong with you. Then the last part, saying it's your business and you don't have to listen to me, but no matter what you try to be I still see you for who you are. Anyways, it's a great song.

    General CommentI'm not sure what this song is about. I guess him just telling a girl (or anyone listening to the song) to just be yourself or something...no matter what. It's a really beautiful song. I love Ben Folds :)
