Week 1: #3 Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri (lyrics)

My third pick for the week is definitley going to be Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri.
She is an american singer and song writer from Philadelphia. Her song Jar of Hearts comes from her album lovestrong.

It a great song probably because it hits more in the heart for those broken hearted people. This song talks about love and relationships where your in the recovery road from being heart broken and somehow recovered a bit, building a sense of worth along the way and not to be fooled once again. At least, that’s how i interpreted it, haha! I know a lot of people can relate to it.

The lyrics are found below which I got from here.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

I know I can’t take one more step towards you
Cause all thats waiting is regret
Don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live, half alive
And now you want me one more time

Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting a jar of hearts
Tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?

I hear you’re asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

Ive learned to live, half alive
And now you want me one more time

Who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting a jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don’t come back for me
Who do you think you are?

It took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish i had missed the first time that we kissed
Cause you broke all your promises
And now you’re back
You don’t get to get me back

Who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars
Collecting a jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Dont come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars
Collecting a jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You’re gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me
Dont come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

  1. another great song selection…I am impressed 🙂 but just curious, which part of this song did you relate to? is there a story behind it? a heartbreak in the past? sorry if I sound imposing but I do ask those type of questions when I’m intrigued. You are in no compulsion to answer. 🙂 again, great selection. looking forward for number 4. 🙂
