"The Ballad of Jayne" as written by Mick Cripps, Tracii Gunns, Philip Lewis, Kelly Nickels and Steve Riley....
She was always something special
Diamond shining bright in the rain
Everybody dreams of angels
No one would ever know
How much I love you so

Now it all seems funny, kinda like a dream
Things ain't always what they seem
What a shame, what happened to Jayne

You were always on my mind
Shine like a summer day in the sun
Slowly wishes turn to sadness
Time don't heal a broken gun
I wish I never let you go
Even now I just want you to know

That it all seems funny, kinda like a dream
Things ain't always what they seem
What a shame, what happened to Jayne

Now she's breakin' hearts in heaven
Shinin' bright in the sky
I still hear her voice in the wind
I still think of you in the night, oh yeah
Well I guess you'll never know
How much I need her so

Now it all seems funny, kinda like a dream
Things ain't always what they seem
What a shame, what a shame
What happened to Jayne

Now it all seems funny, kinda like a dream
Things ain't always what they seem
What a shame, what happened today
What happened today

    General CommentThis may be my favorite of the so-called "Power Ballads" from the early 90s. It's one of those songs that you hear once and it sticks in your mind for hours, if not days. Even in 2013.
