Recorded in Santa Fe and Seattle during the summer and fall of 2007. The song was inspired by a girl I went to grad school with whom everyone referred to as "Crazy Jane". ~Garrett Hobba


I see that you’re still hanging round
just tell me what you want

something lonely about your smile
don’t think I can love you
want someone to love you

you got a love that doesn’t sell
you’re just like a rose that fell
people thinking that you’re weird
can’t help feeding on your fears

people call you Crazy Jane,
but that’s not your real name
just tell me your real name

you follow me around the school
seeking a world that isn’t true
you ask me to come ad see your place
but I know better than to play with flames

always running through the dark
to free the aching in your heart
you want someone to make you whole
and find a friend to take you home


released December 15, 2007
