Bek Lyrics

Soldier Jane

(From the "The Information" Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen, Nigel Godrich]

No one cares what dress she wears at all
Tattered rags and paper bags and all
She's the one, sleeping in the dirt
Drag her down, don't let her drown in dirt

Lovers drag their canes across the gates
Gamblers light candles for the days
No one wake her up, she's sleeping still
So put a candle on the window sill

Soldier Jane, don't be afraid
Taking heart, out of the shell
Taking heart, out of the shell
Throw it away

Stars, they strike the darkness in the room
Knives, they take the poison from the wound
Cars, they drive us down into the ruins
Sweep our cares away with dirty brooms

Soldier Jane, don't be afraid
Taking heart, out of the shell
Taking heart, out of the shell
Don't be afraid
