Hackett, Steve - Jane Austen's Door Lyrics




Has Jean Paul Sartre deserted you
Do you still listen to the blues
Is there a needle beside your hand
A poisoned chalice or the promised land
Some doors open some doors close
Do opposites still seem close

Did Ruby Tuesday get to you
Or the caretaker whose film we used
A purple rose that was ignored
The child behind Jane Austen's door

Oh has your life seemed unkind
With all those friends you left behind
We burned our bridges fast those days
Don't think about them it doesn't pay

My drunken guitar Sloane Square tube
Falling backwards me and you
Tumbling over to the floor
You cried inside Jane Austen's door

So long

Let it die let it go

Heureusment vivre dans une cage
Un homme et femme peut-etre mon age
I'll take your part when this wheel turns
How many lifetimes it takes to learn

So goodbye goodbye little star
Forgive yourself heal that scar
A purple rose that was ignored
The light inside Jane Austen's door

Shine on

Hackett, Steve Jane Austen's Door Comments
  1. A Sammler

    Has Jean-Paul Sartre deserted you
    Do you still listen to the blues
    Is there a needle beside your hand
    A poisoned chalice or the promised land

    Some doors open, some doors close
    Two opposites still seem close
    Did Ruby Tuesday get to you
    Or the caretaker whose film we used
    A purple rose that was ignored
    The child behind Jane Austen's door

    O, has your life seemed unkind
    With all those friends you left behind
    We burned our bridges fast those days
    Don't think about them, it doesn't pay
    My drunken guitar Sloane Square tube
    Falling backwards, me and you
    Tumbling over to the floor
    You cried inside Jane Austen's door
    So long, so long, so long, so long


    (let life, let it go)

    Heureusement vivre dans une cage
    Un homme et femme, peut-etre mon age
    I'll take your part when this wheel turns
    How many lifetimes it takes to learn
    So goodbye, goodbye little star
    Forgive yourself, heal that scar
    A purple rose that was ignored
    A light inside Jane Austen's door
    Shine on, shine on, so long, shine on, shine on

    This is the same solo he performed for Ritchie''s 1983 hit Voo de Coracao. Check it out. Ritchie is a brit that went to live in brazil in the 70s and hit it big in 83 with an album packed with hits.

  6. extremadrummer

    I love this song. Never played alive probably due to the double guitar melody. What a master!
