You've got the untortured mind of a woman
Who has answered all the questions before.
You've got the free-givin' ways of a woman
Who has kicked all the heartache out the door.
And Jainie, don't you know?
Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'
Jainie, don't you know?
Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'

Yes, I truly love to be with you
If I wasn't with the one that I'm with.
Yes, I truly love to lie with you
If I didn't have to give what I give.
Jainie, don't you know?
Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'
Jainie, don't you know?
Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'

I brought to you my tired plans and weary faith to you
And with a smile you took me in and showed me love again
Now it has to be say good-bye or stayin', I don't know
But remember please I gave you love that's only mine to give
And Jainie, don't you know?
Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'
Jainie, don't you know?
Jainie, don't you know? I been tryin'.

    General CommentIt's about Jane who Tim met after leaving Mary (though I can't remember if it was the reason Tim and Mary split). Apparently she (Jane) was pissed off at the fact it was Jainie and not Jane.
