Jaded Jean

lyrics

If you could see like jaded jean

You wouldn't have a need for dreams

Like jaded jean in her jaded scene

She's planting seeds

A garden queen
You can find her at home almost every night

Writing letters on sheets of white

Or jade green

From her garden stream

She's consciously falling asleep

Jaded jean

Would you believe

Her father's at home

Watching the clocks

While mommy's alone

And would you believe

In all of these things

If you could see

Like jaded jean

If you could work out everything

And fill the holes the ashes bring

You wouldn't have a need for dreams

Like jaded jean

In her jaded scene

The stories come before she falls asleep

She draws the people she wants to meet

They live in houses filled with schemes

The sun rises up

And floods her streams

Would you believe

Her father's at home

Watching the clocks

While mommy's alone

And would you believe

In all of these things

If you could see

Like jaded jean

If you could be like jaded jean

You wouldn't have a need for dreams
