"Jewel Box" as written by and Buckley....
I know you are a woman by the way you burn below.
I'll tell you secrets so good, you'll never tell a soul.
Come closer, that bonfire holds his life like stones
My years, my life unknown.
Diamonds from he pavement
Where the broken glass had been.
Just like this troubles that I'm leaving to the wind.
Like sapphires in boxcars speeding towards the end.
Like thieves, my bad luck grows.

Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Crystallize illusion shine, forgot I'm here
Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Oh, you left some stars in my belly.

Star crossed child's love on the bands of wedding golds
Silver studs of promise hide in the red crushed velvet folds.
Inaction, intention, like emeralds I stole.
My speech of custom gold.
I think I ought to know.
Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Crystallize illusion shine, forgot I'm here
Jewel box of sadness, bring to catch your tear
Oh, you left some stars in my belly.
You left some stars in my belly.
You left some stars in my belly.

    General CommentThe lyrics in this song are so quintessential. It sounds like it could be a crap ass song in the very beginning but it ends up becoming this poignant peice of art.

    And I don't know what the hell you left some stars in my belly is supposed to mean but the imagery, especially in context with the rest of the song, makes it so extremely powerful. Its what made me listen even deeper into the song. In fact I didn't even notice that the song even had mention of any jewels until 3 months after I got the CD. It reminds me of how much of a lyrical genius Jeff was. I miss him so much.
