about

Melatonin is an unusual blend of laid back guitar music and Americana banjos.
Lyrically focused, the song brings to mind a west coast nostalgia,
with images of pink sunglasses, wired telephones and Cadillacs.

lyrics

Verse 1:

Now Jane

Standing over in her nightgown

She’s got the phone cord twisted ring finger

She’s a sight to see

See jane

Why you staring out the window

With the red eyes tell me his name

That got you tangled up

Verse 2:

Now Jane

She’s a lover like a pipe bomb

She’s got the pink sunglasses high heels

Gonna walk it out

Now Jane

Whatchya doing in the backseat

I always thought you were a front seat

Cadillac burning up the town with us

Prechorus:

She said you feeling all right

Cause you look like hell

I think I’m doing just fine

As far as i can tell

Chorus:

Well its just so easy

When everybody talks so carefully

But you’re my melatonin daydream

Pretend you don’t but you know

You know you know

That they all want you

Theres nothing else you really can do

And if you could you wouldn’t want to

Oh i know

Verse 3:

Now Jane

Where the hell did all your friends go

They got a job in the city and a kid

Used to be so close

Jane

You remember what you told me

When we were standing in the bathroom,

Midnight baby we were so messed up

Prechorus:

You said well you can be mine

I wouldn’t mind being yours

I wouldn’t take up your time

And i could sleep on the floor

Chorus:

Well its just so easy

When everybody talks so carefully

But your my melatonin daydream

Pretend you don’t but you know

You know you know

That they all want you

Theres nothing else you really can do

And if you could you wouldn’t want to

Oh i know
