Lyrics [1]

Jeane

The low-life has lost its appeal And I'm tired of walking these streets To a room with its cupboard bare Jeane I'm not sure what happiness means But I look in your eyes And I know That it isn't there

We tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried

Jeane There's ice on the sink where we bathe So how can you call this home When you know it's a grave? But you still hold the reedy grace As you tidy the place But it will never be clean Jeane

We tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried

Cash on the nail It's just a fairy tale And I don't believe in magic anymore Jeane But I think you know I really think you know I think you know the truth Jeane

No heavenly choirs Not for me and not for you Because I think that you know I really think you know I think you know the truth Jeane

That we tried and we failed That we tried and we failed We tried and we failed We tried and we failed Oh Jeane
