Breaking Benjamin - The Diary of Jane



This song is about a guy who loved a girl, but he finds out that she never loved him back, hence: "I'll still try and find my place in the diary of Jane."


The band did three versions of this song. The first version is pretty much the song as you probably know it. The second version is exactly the same, only the ending note is lower than the first version. And the third version is much softer, acoustic rendition of the song featuring Sebastian Davin on backing vocals.


The single moved rapidly up the charts in its first week of official release, debuting on the Billboard Hot 100 at #55, making it the fastest added single ever in the history of Hollywood Records.



Lyrics


If I had to


I would put myself right beside you


So let me ask


Would you like that?


Would you like that?



And I don't mind


If you say this love is the last time


So now I'll ask


Do you like that?


Do you like that?



No!



Something's getting in the way.


Something's just about to break.


I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.


So tell me how it should be.



Try to find out what makes you tick.


As I lie down


Sore and sick.


Do you like that?


Do you like that?



There's a fine line between love and hate.


And I don't mind.


Just let me say that


I like that


I like that



Something's getting in the way.


Something's just about to break.


I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.


As I burn another page,


As I look the other way.


I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane.


So tell me how it should be.



Desperate, I will crawl


Waiting for so long


No love, there is no love.


Die for anyone


What have I become?



Something's getting in the way.


Something's just about to break.


I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.


As I burn another page,


As I look the other way.


I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
