Anyone who's ever had a heart
Wouldn't turn around and break it
And anyone who's ever played a part
Wouldn't turn around and hate it
Sweet Jane, sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane

You're waiting for Jimmy down in the alley
Waiting there for him to come back home
Waiting down on the corner
And thinking of ways to get back home
Sweet Jane, sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane

Anyone who's ever had a dream
Anyone who's ever played a part
Anyone who's ever been lonely
And anyone who's ever split apart
Sweet Jane, sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane

Heavenly widened roses
Seem to whisper to me when you smile
Heavenly widened roses
Seem to whisper to me when you smile

Sweet Jane
Sweet, sweet Jane

    General CommentSometimes I think about why so many of these lyric debates center around addiction vs love. Is addiction a love?

    Or is IT always about love. Drugs, addiction, murder, hate, or whatever, its always about love? Or love and seperation anyway?

    Is love just what we do? Like pee, we do it in our undees or on a rose bush and it grows pretty, but we do it.

    Anyway great pee, Lou and CJ.
