Jane Doe

Album: What Is Love? (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Never Shout Never (aka Christofer Ingl) told Artist Direct the story behind this song: "I was actually sitting in a Santa Monica restaurant, eating with one of my buddies. There was this beautiful waitress, and I didn't know her name but she served me an awesome veggie burger. I was like, 'I'm going to write her a song, I'm going to go back and play it for her and I'm going to win her heart.' I went back to my beach house and then started writing this crazy song about a girl named 'Jane Doe' because I didn't know the waitress's name yet. I never ended up playing it for her though. It was really sad that I chickened out [Laughs]."
