"The Devil in the Wishing Well [Music Video]" as written by and John Ondrasik....
I met Jane at the center of the earth
It was dark there was dirt all around
But I gather you can figure that

And Jane says, I'm your body in the night
And I'll lead you where you might find yourself
Better if you follow me

So go right you'll be left at a big hotel
You'll meet the devil at the bottom of a wishing well
You know you better give him something
Give him something good
Like everybody else he's misunderstood

Jane says, it's a long way out
But I'm gonna make it out
'Cause I'm about her

See Jane says, you're as holy as a ghost
But who loves you the most, if you offer
I might let you carry me

And Jane there's nobody here but yourself
In the end it's the wealth of your spirit
Now hurry up get on with it

I went left, I got right at some big hotel
There was a devil at the bottom of the wishing well
He said, you better give me something
Give me something good
Like everybody else I'm misunderstood

Jane says, it's a long way out
I'm gonna make it out
'Cause I'm about

Jane says, it's a long way out
I'm gonna make it out
I'm gonna make it out
I'm gonna make it out

I took a guess and cut a portion out of my heart
He said that's nowhere close enough but it's a damn good start
I wrote the secret that I buried on the wishing well wall
He said, I've seen one it follows that I've seen them all

We spoke of human destination in a perfect world
Derived the nature of the universe found it unfulfilled
As I took him in my arms he screamed, I'm not insane
I'm just looking for someone to understand my pain

It's a long way out
I'm gonna make it out
It's a long way out
I'm gonna make it out
It's a long, it's a long way out
I'm gonna make it out
