Sam Nichol – jane

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.

LYRICS:

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
