Jane, oh now Jane
You got me like a dog
Gone in chain
Its called biding my time
Your sitting pretty in a lie
I know when I'm gone you'll cry for me

Cause all sense I see
Those lonely eyes defying your skin
Well all the world I ignore
Turned shadow into stone
My lord
I know when I'm gone you'll cry for me
And oh when I'm gone you'll cry

All the things you used to tell me
Made me feel so sure
Now I don't know what's wrong
Or what's right anymore
Hate in me brain
You smile to deceive it
Down in the station
You said goodbye
And I lost my mind to believe it
Till I can't find a reason so much
Ask why

These three months are gone
Like lock the door
And no one will come today
I walk in a dream
Through the streets
Out to the stream
I know when I'm gone you'll cry for me

Now tongues, they can't talk
Just how they want to know in my heart
What's true
But oh when it stings
I'm terrified of all the things
I might do
I know when I'm gone you'll cry for me
I know when I'm gone you'll cry for me

All the things you used to tell me
Made me feel so sure
Now I don't know what's wrong
Or what's right anymore
Hate in me brain
You smile to deceive it
Down in the station
You said goodbye
And I lost my mind to believe it
But I can't find a reason so much
Ask why

All the things you used to tell me
All the things you used to tell me
All the things you used to tell me
No no no no no
