Plain Jane


Lyrics & Info

Performances (32)

You wear couture clothing like a hunter wears camouflage 
Hiding insecurity hoping no one ever catches on 
You like to read scientific magazines like Vanity Fair 
There was a well-written article about serotonin in there

You keep the same company you think Coco kept too 
You wear a bracelet on your wrist that says What Would Elvis Do? 
You make snide comments in private but in public you're fashionably green 
You're ironic, but not too proud to brag, you know what it really means

Oh, cynicism has begun to numb the pain 
Fashion still works until you realize you're the same 
Plain Jane

You have a rock hard body but you only make love in the dark 
Beneath painted legs you're afraid they'll see what's really in your heart 
You say cool things like at least murder is interesting 
Cause the worst crime a person can commit in life is to be boring

Oh, cynicism has begun to numb the pain 
Fashion still works until you realize you're the same 
Plain Jane

Such a sweet face, just embrace the real you 
You will see it's just lovely and more than enough to be loved 
Yes, loved 
Loved

Oh, cynicism has begun to numb the pain 
And fashion still works until you realize you're the same 
Plain 
What's wrong with plain old Jane? 
Kinda like plain Jane 
I like plain Jane

Flower of Life
“I wrote this after being in New York for a week and being around some socialites. It’s about women – and I include myself, certainly – feeling this need to hide behind something because we don’t feel good enough exactly how we are. We have to somehow be prettier or smarter or dress better to be lovable. It’s really a song about self-acceptance and learning to love yourself and that ‘Plain Jane’ is beautiful.” Picking Up the Pieces Press Release
