Album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich
“I’ve got a picture of your house
And you`re standing by the door
It`s black and white and faded
And it`s looking pretty worn

See the factory that I worked
Silhouetted in the back
The memories are gray
But man, they`re really coming back
I don`t need to be the king of the world
As long as I`m the hero of this little girl

Heaven isn`t too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
We`ll find a way

How I love the way you move
And the sparkle in your eyes
There`s a color deep inside them
Like a blue surburban sky

When I come home late at night
And you`re in bed asleep
I wrap my arms around you
So I can feel you breathe
I don`t need to be a superman, ah ah
As long as you will always be my biggest fan

Heaven isn`t too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
We`ll find a way

Now the lights are going out
Along the boulevard
The memories come rushing back
And it makes it pretty hard

I`ve got nowhere left to go
And no one really cares
I don`t know what to do
But I`m never giving up on you

Heaven isn`t too far away
Closer to it every day
No matter what your friends might say
Yeah, we`re gonna find a way

Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh
Whoa oh, oh, oh, oh oh

It`s not too far away
Eh yeah
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away
It`s not too far away”

-Jani Lane

“..The ‘80s hair metal scene produced its share of reckless hedonists who adhered to a strict diet of sex, drugs and booze. Some, like Nikki Sixx and Slash were able to kick their vices. Others, such as Warrant’s Jani Lane, were never able to abandon the rock and roll lifestyle. Lane died on August 11, 2011, of acute alcohol poisoning. He was 47. Lane’s descent into oblivion was neither sensational or romantic. He died alone, with no money or ID at a Comfort Inn in Woodlands, California. Police reported that Lane was surrounded by liquor bottles and pills…”
Jani Lane ‘biography’ letter posted by ex-wife Bobbie Brown
by craig on Aug.29, 2012, under ROCK NEWS
“..Bobbie Brown has posted a hand written biography on her facebook page written by her late ex-husband Jani Lane. Apparently dated July 2011, it was written just weeks before Jani’s death on August 11th, 2011.

In the writing, Jani revealed that he may have been coming to terms with his place in life as the “Cherry Pie” guy. And in a erie way – he sends a message to all when he says; “everyday above ground is a gift”in his closing coments. Metal Sludge first brought the posting to light. Check them out at:

“Wow i just read this . a hand written bio jani wrote about his life a month before he died. my cousin apparently did the web site or helped with it. but it’s really amazing…” Bobbie Brown..”

The Last Days Of Jani Lane By Brooke Ellis August 11, 2016 Classic Rock
“..Oddly enough, many of Jani’s problems seemed to stem from his greatest success. He felt regret over his belief that, despite his integrity as a songwriter, he would only be remembered for one song, the enormously successful 80s anthem, Cherry Pie, which he downplayed as “a gimmick”. In a VH1 interview he shared his disdain for being known as the “Cherry Pie guy” stating, “I could shoot myself in the fucking head for writing that song” It is an unfortunate truth that when one reveals vulnerability, it invites insensitivity. Throughout a 2007 interview I did with the 80s metal parodists Steel Panther, they repeatedly asked their manager whether or not a person they referred to as “Cherry Pie guy” would arrive. I assumed it was a nickname for a friend, but it was, in fact, Jani Lane. He did show up, and not only did he sing the first Warrant single, Down Boys, onstage with them, he also performed that hit he so hated: Cherry Pie rocked the capacity crowd and Jani was in good spirits. He was drinking this night, and after I ushered him to the VIP room of the magazine I was representing, we drank cocktails. He never lost his composure and remained the nice guy free of pretence I’d grown to admire.
