Wonderful song by Sam Nichol
Artist about the track:
jane is a romance, a habit, the state of man. common to us all but belonging to no one. she is alluring but empty. and I slip away.
a note from sam:
jane grows to mean more to me the more I play it. I wrote it initially as a reflection on lust and consequence, but as the lyric developed I found my mind being pulled into multiple directions and onto different subjects. for me jane can be applied to depression, or being caught in an abusive (or unhealthy) relationship, or destructive loneliness that one can’t seem to shake. to me, jane is a picture of how art and song can grow and change with the listener. I hope that you can receive something from the song that hasn’t occurred to me yet. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
“jane” was recorded in a bedroom in Nashville, TN. drums, bass, and piano were tracked in a small recording studio in the country outside of Franklin, TN. the primary production idea was to service the song in whatever way possible. we hope we succeeded.
blackened eyes cut through me as she looks me down poetry is drawn from my lips as her scythe bares down her freezing body nears me and I'm warmed to my core then back to cold in the the blink of an eye but I beg for more the grim reaper is a woman, her name is jane she puts her hands all over me she's taken down my name and I slip away I try escaping from her and end up back in her arms who could have known that the eyes of my lover would keep my heart behind bars the grim reaper is a woman, her name is jane she puts her hands all over me she's taken down my name and I slip away she's my condition that debilitating thought I've been forgiven but I still feel caught the grim reaper is a woman, her name is jane she puts her hands all over me she's taken down my name
