Jeane
by The Smiths

Jeane,
The low life has lost its appeal
And I'm tired of walking these streets
To a room with its cupboards 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...
Oh Jeane...

There's ice on the sink where we bathe
So how can you call this a home
When you know its a grave
Yet you still have that greedy 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...

Gash on the nail
Its just a fairytale...
And I don't believe in magic anymore, Jeane...

But I think you know,
I really think you know
Oh yes I think you know the truth, Jeane

No heavenly choirs not for me
And no not for you
Because I think you know
I really think you know
I think you know the truth
Oh Jeane

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

"Jeane, I'm not sure what happiness means, but I look in your eyes and I know,
That it isn't there"
Still the best lyrics of all time

Personally my favorite is from pregnant for the last time - " so you see someone new then you want someone new so you have someone new and i don't blame you we would all do the same if we had the chance too ".

@Jim Newcombe you thought you were doing something there? didn't you

Fickle Epicure

@Jim Newcombe i think with statements like that it's implied that it's obviously an opinion, but i mean maybe not, at least that's the way i see it. It's a good line, probably one of my favorites by them, but "the pain was enough to make a shy, bald Buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder" and "they said there's too much caffeine in your bloodstream, and a lack of real spice in your life" come to mind as ones I like more and I really relate to ones like "your prejudice won't keep you warm tonight", "and everything depends on how near you stand to me, and if the people stare then the people stare, I really don't know and I really don't care" and "when you want to live how do you start? where do you go? who do you need to know?". The Smiths were a band where their songs were packed with memorable lines, and different ones speak to different people.

This is ground zero, this song was the start of me being obsessed with the Smiths and then Morrissey, not a lie to say this song changed my life, i was eleven when i heard this the first time.
