Jane, be Jane
You're better that way
Not when your trying
Imitating something
You think you saw
So 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
But 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 it's your life
You can decorate it
As you like
Beneath the pain and armor
In your eyes
The truth still shines
Jane, be Jane

Jane, be Jane

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. It reminds me of the Alanis Morissette song "Mary Jane" because they both share that desire to help someone who can't see all the beauty they possess.
