I first heard you sing in the Empire Room

Your husky hum engulfed the gloom

And whatever mission that brought me there

Disappeared in the mist of your amber hair



You laughed and surrendered your gifts by degrees

But I was convinced that you spoke only to me

And my life turned on its hinge in that smoky club

As I ground out my past with my cigarette stub



Oh, I do it for you, Jane, I love you so

My kingdom is new but it's going to grow

Our castle will shimmer with silver and gold

My lady is lovely, you'll never grow old

And I offer this promise, this one thing I know

I do it for you, Jane, for I love you so



I left that town and went out on my own

I made my own kind of music as I juggled the phones

And all the while I worked, I was reaching towards a time

When I'd return to find you and finally make you mine



It took most of two years to do what must be done

Collect the pieces of the puzzle, you're the final one

I was shaking as I asked you and you know by now I guess

You made me happy ever after when you said, ?Yes?



Yes, I do it for you, Jane, I love you so

My kingdom is flourishing and still it will grow

Our castle, it shimmers with silver and gold

My lady is lovely, you'll never grow old

And I shout from the heavens, ?Hello there, down below?

I do it for you, Jane, for I love you so



If life could only stay the same but I guess it never does

But God, I still remember how excited I was

Feelings of power I'd never known before

But winning whets the appetite, I had to have more



Homes in New York and London, on the beach at Malibu

I bought one for each facet of woman in you

By then you had retired from singing to bring our baby home

And I was winging around the country and you found you were alone



Still, I do it for you, Jane, I love you so

Our kingdom is flourishing and still it will grow

Our castles all shimmer with silver and gold

But my lady is lonely, your smile is growing cold

As I search through the mists on the roads I must go

Where are you now, Jane? For I love you so
