Jainy sells for three dimes a night
Morning helps her find her way blind
And I love her more than I can tell
Heaven help me now
Seems I found to find her just as well

Jainy yea,
Jainy yea

Jainy takes me three times a night
Morning saves me and I find my way blind
And she loves me more than she can tell
Heaven help her now
Seems she's found to find me just as well

Jainy yea,
Jainy yea

Jainy stares at stars every night
Morning takes her eyes every time
And she'll love you more than you can tell
Heaven help us now
Seems you've finally found us, just as well

Jainy yea,
Jainy yea

She'll be all right
She'll be all right

    I love this song so much I love it when they look at females problems from a male perspective and although I believe (very obviously) that it's about a prostitute that it could be any female with problems that needs that man in life to show her that she is okay nd that she will be fine.

    this is a really cool song and i love the way it sounds. i think that it is about a prostitute that has a hard life and this guy is in love with her and she doesnt really want to be selling her body but she thinks that its the only way.

    I can ignore the prostitute reference. I really want to find a girl named Jainy and go out with her, just so I can play this song when we fight.

    ok, prostitute thing, im pretty sure its just ananalogy, what prostitude really sells for 30 cents? Drug reference, 3 dimes of like coke or something that get him through the night. The drug gets him through and hes adicted "more than [he] can tell. Heaven help him now "seems shes found to find me just as well"- he found the drug and it wont leave him alone Jainy is really an adiction, not a real girl

    sorry buddy, y would you want a song about prostitutes to be like your girlfriends song???

    not 100% sure. but prostitutes dont sell that cheap. and the dime homonym is seen in more than just this song.

    I agree i think its more of a drug refrence. Like when its says morning saves me and morning takes her eyes. Its like the drug is wearing off and stuff again.

    This song is so pretty and I like it so much that I named my new kitty Jainy. I don't think that it's a song about a prostitute or drugs those are other songs this seems more about two loney people.

    Weird...it only posted the first line of my comment. OK, again: I definitely get the prostitution reference, although 3 dimes does seem a bit odd. I think the big picture of the song is more important - it's so sad but beautiful. Any ideas on the recurring theme of blindness through the song? first stanza: morning helps her find her way blind second stanza: morning saves me and I find my way blind third stanza: morning takes her eyes every time

    My Interpretation

    It seems that Jainy is blind to the fact that he loves her, even though he does. While he is blind to the fact that she loves him. So she moves on to another man who will soon be in the same situation.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
