Jewel's, "Innocence Maintained"
Misheard Lyrics:
I saw a man with a hole he could not fill
He couldn't make the world work for him and didn't work and still
There was a hole inside his soul
that whiskey could not still
So he found himself a girl to love
while babies choked in the windowsill
Original Lyrics:
A hero's torso built of steel and novacaine
His heart a bitter beat inside a bloodless frame
There was a hole inside his sould a manicure couldn't fill
So he found himself a whore to love
while daisies choked in the windowsill
