The Smiths JEANE Lyrics

Last updated: 10/13/2012 11:57:49 AM


Jeane
The low-life has lost its appeal
And I'm tired of walking these streets
To a room with a 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, 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 a home
When you know it's a grave ?


But you still hold a greedy grace
As you tidy the place
But it'll never be clean
Jeane


We tried, 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 fairytale
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


Oh ...


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


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

Pure kitchen sink brilliance. Such utterly poignant phrasing - what a terrible shame that it was never recorded properly (outside that leaden Troy Tate session, that is). The Billy Bragg version comes closest to doing this song justice, but a would have loved a better composed take by The Smiths.
