Christina Perri – Jar Of Hearts lyrics

No I can't take one more step towards you
Cause all that's 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...

And who do you think you are
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your 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.
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


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

And who do you think you are
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your 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
Who do you think you are?

And 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

And who do you think you are
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your jar of heart
And tearing love apart

You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul

So don't come back for me
Don't come back at all!

And who do you think you are
Running around leaving scars
Collecting your 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
Don't come back at all
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

    This song to me was about a boy who treated her wrong by maybe cheating, or lying. And she dumped him and maybe he said something like "I dont need you" and left, a few weeks later, he comes back and wants her. He wants to cheat or lie again. So she writes this song to him saying that she does not want him back and he should get a life. I know this becuase I am accually going through this. Lifes a b*h. Then you die.

    This reminds me of my old bff: '(She ditched me for another girl and then came back when she realized I didn't do anything but I had already moved on. So I said no. I bet there's many, many, many people out there like this who have been ditched by their bff or their boyfriend or someone they really, really loved or cared for. And Christina is right: it takes so long to recover ad just when you move on and you can be happy and not be able to regret anything or shed a tear anymore, they come back an beg. God. I hope you guys never have to experience this. It's so hard! But life is life. I respect Christina now. I hated "A Thousand Years" because it was theme son for "Twilight Saga". But now she has captured everyone's feelings in "Jar of Hearts" and made herself a hell of a lot better than Miley! Go Christina!

    I gave you everything that was to give but you did not appreciate them. Instead you broke my heart. And now months later when I have mended my heart again, you come running back wanting me in your life because you know I was the best thing that had ever happened to you. But how do I know that you would not break my heart again? Also I have grown strong for I have survived with you so I shut my heart and eyes to you and strive to go forward without you as I do not want you to have my heart ever again.

    I think I'm a bit older than most of the people posting, so I'll throw in my 2 cents.
    Some guys (and girls, too) are much more interested in the chase than they are in the person that they are chasing. Once they "catch" someone, and they know that the person cares for them, these hunters are bored - and must be off on the hunt again.
    And it's not that they do it on purpose, either. It's really just the way their feelings work. They want what they don't (and especially, *can't*) have, and are bored by what they do have. They spend their lives chasing love, and never attaining it.
    As badly as these hunters hurt the people that they discard, they are to be pitied because they will never be happy, never be satisfied, never be whole.

    This goes to Pookie76. I can't imagine the pain you feel about losing your baby. The love of a mother is uncomparable. I know that. But thinking things clearly. Do you really believe our loving God would take your daughter away from you? He wouldnt give you that gift and just take away. What will give you is hope to see her again. If we have faith in Him and all he can do we will be blessed with a better future (Revelation 21: 4)
    I really am sorry for your loss. I truly am.
