"Jackie Cane" as written by and Cathy/callier Dennis....
Jackie cane was everybody's sugar
She gave it all wherever it took her
They used her up before the sell-by date
To be so sweet was her only mistake
The only flower in a concrete garden
Destined to be the rock that wouldn't harden
Jackie cane was everybody's sugar
She'd melt away if only she could of
Taken for granted
Abused and drained
They ran her dry and
Then it never rained
She was the queen
Of the 25th hour
They looked so sweet
But the after-taste was sour
Salty days for Jackie Cane

    General CommentJackie Cane is about a female popstar that hit her 15 minutes of fame and then went into the downward spiral into drug abuse and finally overdose. The band released a concept album years later (Hooverphonic presents Jackie Cane) which told the compete story of the fictional Jackie's downfall.
