Sunday Song Lyric:
I've been taking in Consolers of the Lonely, the new album from The Raconteurs (Jack White of the White Stripes' other band.) While I like the first single, "Salute Your Solution," I am also quite fond of the title track. The lyrics begin:
Haven't seen the sun in weeks,
My skin is getting pale.
Haven't got a mind left to speak
And I'm skinny as a rail.

Light bulbs are getting dim.
My interest is starting to wain.
I'm told it's everything a man could want
And I shouldn't complain.

Conversation's getting dull,
There's a constant buzzing in my ears
Sense of humor's void and null
And I'm bored to tears.

And I can't spell "wane."

wain Look up wain at Dictionary.com
O.E. wægn "wheeled vehicle," from P.Gmc. *wagnaz (see wagon). Largely fallen from use by c.1600, but kept alive by poets, who found it easier to rhyme on than wagon. Wainwright "wagon-builder" is O.E. wægn-wyrhta.

Jack White is, hmm, what's the word I'm looking for here - AMAZING? No, that doesn't do justice. Something beyond that. We need a new word.

No correction occurred there. The lyric contains a misspelling. The blurb from dictionary.com does not show that "wain" is an acceptable spelling for the word meaning "to diminish"--the blurb shows that the word "wain" meant "wagon" and is still sometimes used with that meaning.
