Biography

The sound of Dear Jane is sculpted by music, experiences and the persprectives of two very different generations. She is 21, he's 51. Listeners can hear the influences as woven textures of melody and color. Sometimes the sound is stark, in shades of grey, other times in swirling earth tones. The sound is simple and easy to grasp, playful and catchy, threading through different genres.

Lyrics

Man to You

Written By: Ron Slimm

if I was a man
you know I’d find a way
to take you out into the woods
you could tell me all your secrets
all your little dreams
i’d make you feel like no one ever could
i would take you in my arms
with the strength of ten
till I almost take your breath away
i’d kiss your quivering lips and hold your shivering hips
i’d hold you tighter as you pull away

but me and my friends
are nothing but boys
doing only things that little boys do
i’d leave all my friends and my family behind
i’d give my soul to the devil too
to be a man to you
be a man to you

in the dark of the night
the restless night
i sweat from the thoughts of you
only a man with a will of stone
could make the dreams of you come true
you’re haunting all my nights
and all my days
i can taste you in the air I breath
i’m being eaten by a serpent
living in my head
and there’s no chance
that I will get reprieve

in the lee of your smile
no more than a child

if I was a man
you know I’d find a way
to take you out into the woods
you could tell me all your secrets
all your little dreams
i’d make you feel like no one ever could
i would take you in my arms
with the strength of ten
till I almost take your breath away
i’d kiss your quivering lips and hold your shivering hips
i’d hold you tighter as you pull away

Simple Man

Written By: Ron Slimm

Simple man

i am just, a simple man
and i'm doin, oh the best i can
i'll ask nothin, from woman beast or man
i'd give it all, cause i'm a simple man

i am just, a simple man
and i'm workin, on a simple plan
and you might notice, there's nothin in my hands
it's in the heart, of this simple man
feel the full moon glow, touch the winter snow
sit and watch the clouds roll by
embrace the summer night, watch the birds in flight
feel the ground, beneath your feet
she is just, a simple girl
and she's longing, for a simple world
trapped in silence, like a pearl
i could free her, oh with just a word
kiss her loving lips, no need for more than this
the love she gives, is more than true
put your hand in mine, we'll see what we can find
lets take a chance, just take a chance
i can take, a simple stand
and hope for movement, all across the land
i'll draw a line here, in the sand
so throw your caution, throw your caution to the wind
feel the full moon glow, touch the winter snow
sit and watch the clouds roll by
embrace the summer night, watch the birds in flight
feel the earth beneath your feet
kiss her loving lips, take her by the hips
the love she gives is more than true
put your hand in mine, we'll see what we can find
take a chance, just take a chance
feel the mountain high, let your spirit fly
just give a chance, a chance for peace
hear the children play, walk out in the rain
watch the grasses growing high
i am just, a simple man
and i'm doin, oh the best i can
and i'll ask nothin, from woman beast or man
that's how it is, for a simple man
