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.

    This is such a song of strength! Yes, she's hurt. And it's still present. But "I have grown too strong, to ever fall back in your arms" is such a powerful message. Not just to him. But to her too. That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger. This song has resonated with So many women and men. I feel this will help a lot of people heal! I hope it did for her as well. The words are awesome. In conjunction with the beautiful music. Wow! Very well done, Christina!

    This song perfectly sums up my most recent heart breaking relationship. All my boyfriend would do is run around and basically collect the hearts of other women, including my best friend. He is so convinced that he is the best boyfriend in the world and that he is God's gift to women when he's just a heart breaking jerk. After he broke up with me and shattered my heart, he continued his path of destruction and scars. Then once he was done with a few of my closest friends he came right on back to me to try and get my newly healed heart back so he could break it again, so I told him "No", by sending him this video.

    Song's not about heartbreak - it's about self respect.
    It's for when the one who trampled on your heart years ago comes back as if you are waiting for them with open arms! It's for those treat their former lovers as a back-up plan - they assume you'll put your whole life on-hold for them while they fool around, and then welcome them right back as if nothing happened. Well, something happened while you were away - I moved on with my life!
    Just when you've risen from the depths and limped back to normalcy, a former lover returns to re-ignite the horrible confusion into your life. A part of you wants desperately to fall back into their arms, while all of reason says "you'd be a fool to forgive".
    For me, love was love, and for you, just an ego boost. So you got my heart in your jar of hearts. Take it and go away. No more.

    It reminds me of a heartbreak or a personal battle within; whether it be from an ex or an addiction. Taking them back is always a huge regret. Once your sick and tired of being sick and tired, you have to let go and be strong. An alcohol/drug addiction can often be similar to a cheating boyfriend; broken promises, tearing love apart, leaving scars. But once you let go of either, you learn to put the light back in your life. It takes courage to say no more and walk away. Lovestrong!

    The meaning of this for me is:.
    The boy and the girl had their love so strong but the boy just suddenly left the girl. So even it's so hard, the girl tried to move on. So hard that it took lots of tears to fall just to forget about those promises and love that they've made with each other. Now, the boy just popped to go back to the girl but now it's too late to turn back what was with them from before :(

    This song needs no explanation. Anyone who has been used and abused by someone they really loved understands it perfectly. After being in an abusive relationship, this song is the epitome of everything I went through and continue to go through. He broke me and all of his promises. I had to get away and I did, in fact, grow too strong to ever fall back in his arms. He wants me back, but he'll never get me back. All that would lie ahead would be regret if I were to ever take him back. One of the best songs ever. Love the video as well.

    I can really relate to this song. I was madly in love with a boy. He was everything I wanted, and more. One day he decided we were done. I was crushed. He started going out with my friend, and asked out my best friend. He asked me out again the other day. My heart was screaming at me to go back to him. This song changed my mind. Who does he think he is? I'm not his to toy around with anymore.

    This song reminds me of my relationship with my alcoholic mother. Sad to say. Of all the lives she's ruined, she continues to ruin mine on a daily basis. I let go, then I have to remember she's my mother, I give her another chance and she kills me all over again. Who does she think she is?! Empty promises for 28 years, torturing myself and my children. No matter what the meaning or what the song symbolizes for you. Its still very touching. Thank you Christina.

    This song is about a lady who decides to have a better life without the man she used to really love, he caused her all the pain, heartache, and grief and now finally when she stand up on her feet after almost dying from the pain, she also decides that there's no way she'd be with him anymore, now that he wants her back or tries to be nice, she thinks its better they just never meet anymore coz meeting would only unleash old wounds, tear open old scars and bring back all the sad memories she desperately buried long ago. With the key still in her closet.

    What some people failed to mention is that She got her heart broken right, well she wants to help the other girls that got their heart broken by the same guy. She was cheated on and was sad, but she realized she had to get on with her life insead of holding on to someone who did not lover her to begin with.
    I can sort of relate to this song in a way. I listen to it every day and I just think of my past and laugh. I had my first boyfriend when I was 14, and this guy was just using me to make another girl jealous. Then had the nerve, 2 months later, to ask me out. I said no and he said I am nothing without him and I laughed and I said to him "Wow, you are really insecure. You keep thinking that to make yourself better." And every now and then I get a message from him on facebook of him trying to manipulate me to be with him. I'm 17 and I don't need a man right now. I'm waiting for "the one".

    This song was my life. Married to someone with narcissistic personality disorder for 20 years - nothing but lies and a house of cards and he just handed me a letter one day and walked out on me and our 1 year old one day. Turned out he'd been leading a double life with his mistress for at least 10 years and decided she was worth more to him since she was richer. Then he went back and forth telling me he wanted me to forgive him and he wanted to be with me - same things he was telling his mistress at the same time. Took a long time to recover from the devastation and realize what I had all along was nothing but a half life - ghost life with him. "I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed" but since I can't erase the past, better to just move on and never let him abuse my trust again.

    Its about a boy who leads a bunch of girls on and honestly doesn't care about any of them really but just likes the attention. "jar of hearts" of all the girls that hes been messing with. "i have grown to strong, to ever fall back in your arms," she knows who he is now, and she isn't going to be hopelessly in love with him anymore because she realizes he isn't worth loving.

    This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend who cheated on my and left me for his ex after I was with him for a year and a half but then he came running back and I took him back because I was so heart broken but then he just done the same thing again to me, he cheated on me and tried to leave me for someone else again but I got in there first and finished it with him because I knew by then he was just scum. After then I found out that he done that with just about every girl he had been with just jumps from girl to girl and breaks there hearts so he defo does collect those jars of hearts!

    For me, the meaning is about having a boy who you're casually seeing, who you develop feelings for, but he is too busy enjoying having no commitment to you. And even though he likes you. He doesn't quite like you enough to start a relationship. So he's running around having the same casual relationship with lots of girls, breaking all their hearts. And you eventually get the strength to leave him, even though you could carry on seeing him casually, you realise it's not enough for you and it kills you walking away when you have him (even just a bit of him) but you know it's what you have to do. Then after you give him some space, he decides he wants you back. But you know it's not a good idea, because you'll fall straight back in love with him, and he's never going to treat you right!

    In my opinion this song is about a relly bad break up. She loved this guy and he promised he'd never hurt her. But was being unfaithful and obviously didn't care about it. So when she ended it, from what I think about the lyrics, he thought she wouldn't survive without him and she's come running back to him. But she didn't, which is the hardest thing to do when you love someone. It reminds me of my ex, he said I would be back with him in a week even though he split with me. He thought he could come and go, get his end away whenever he wanted but I said no and moved on. And now he is alone and no one wants him, and I am happy.

    This song kind of reminds me of my own life, of how she once loved a guy and he didn't notice and he would kind of joke around with her but because she felt something for him it hurt her realy bad and without him even notecing he left a scar in her heart that will remain there forever and she will always remember him, but in a way she never wants to see him ever again and because he doesn't notice that he has charm and everything going for him he ripes out other girls hearts and with some girls he means to and she feels like he ment to. I also think that in the end he will end up loveing her and he will always be thinking that she was the best thing that ever happened to her and one day he will want her back :) He might be hurting you but you still love him as I do.

    This song is about how a girl goes for a guy and he brok her heart. Then he's asking people if they seen her. And if those other girls knew about her and the rest of them they all be broken down like her. But they will break up with him and then he'll be singuil! The whole point of the music vidio is to show how he was breaken all those girls hearts.

    It's just about a girl who is in love with a guy, and the guy is a serial heart breaker. Maybe he's so wonderful that girls just fall for him wherever he goes. Maybe he likes doing this to girls. She's not the only one who feels the same way. And then when she's finally over him, he comes back looking for her. Whether he will love her properly this time or just break her heart again, she's not prepared to take the risk. Pretty sure this song was actually written for me. Just experienced this exact same thing :( Feel like absolute efing s*t and just want to listen to Taylor Swift for the rest of my life. But I know I'll get over it. And it just makes you stronger.

    Reminds me of a man I fell deeply in love with years ago and I'm fairly certain he was in love with me too. For various major reasons we could not be together and he left the area. He is handsome and knows it and leaves female hearts in his wake, I am afraid, whether he means to or not. I have had to get angry, justified or not, to even be able to live with his memory.

    For those who say that they want to learn this on piano, don't be disillusioned- it's hard. It sounds easy, but I'm an accomplished level nine jazz/classical/rock pianist and it still took me a while to get the phrasing and emotion right.
    As for the meaning, I think it's just about doing what's better for you, even though it hurts. It might be like drug addicts; I bet it's a pain to stop, but it's better in the end, right? I like it. And it's the only pop song I like.

    This song reminds me of my best friend and her marriage of 21 years. I can't even count how many times he has cheated on her whether it was with another woman or just cheating by drinking, drugs ect. She has done so much for him and stood by him through out all of his misbehaving and yet he still finds a way to steel her heart and even though she has left him half her heart is still with him but I don't think she will go back this time She just lives a half of a life. Thanks to him he taught her that and is collecting another heart.

    I had it long time ago 16 years to be exact we never been together for so long just barely a year but he was my first, and such a fool to make him my world and so stupid he'll do the same. But he chose someone else and left me without a word. Took sometime to figure things out why? . Since then never feel the same. And it was only after 12 years we get in touch again at the net. And 4 years more to before I totally forgave him. And what a nerve he wants us to be with each other again. But no way to trust a person like him. Yet I choose to be at peace with myself and decided to make him just a friend. Life is cruel but still worth to live for. Because came a rainbow from after every great storms.

    Just found out my boyfriend is a cheater - all those business trips out of town - what a fool I was to trust him. My gut told me something was wrong about a year ago and I just thought I was being stupid. I heard this song for the first time when I was driving away after confronting him about the woman's phone number in his wallet - his face was all guilt - so it was a sign from God to go on with my life without the cheater.

    Speechless. And so relatable. Speaks to me of the brokenness that is an addictive relationship. Being addicted to another person's being. There was no willpower every time we saw each other. Break-up after break-up after break-up. This song speaks of the day you finally set yourself free of the pain. With the intonation that addictive love can never really be set free. But the inner torment of trying to be strong and trying to convince yourself you have moved past it all the while knowing he broke you. The bittersweet release of the hurt that created the "us".

    The first time I heard this song I really enjoyed it and it became a favorite song of mine but I didn't think it was that popular. But then for 5 days straight I kept hearing people singing it or I heard it on the radio. I mean seriously! I guess it was just a quinkidink but it was cool. I really like the video and I think it makes the song more interesting.

    This song comes at a perfect time for me. I just let an ex back into my life for him to leave me once again, not the first or even the second, btu the third time. I thought I would never break the cycle but this song. I heard it and cried my eyes out and just something clicked. I knew I could do it and be fine without him, besides someone who can do that to me isn't worth it. So I love this osng and listen to it all the time and the next time I get an email or message from him this is answer he will get.

    "I learned to live half alive". That really brought tears to my eyes. That's exactly how I have felt for the past few months. I'm going through a really rough time in my relationship and I'm ready for it to end but my boyfriend is forcing me to stay with him. In July we went on vacation and we had a great time but as soon as we got home, he started telling me he just doesn't have a connection to me anymore. For months he refused to kiss me or touch me at all. He hasn't slept with me in months. He drives my car because his is broken down and I have only been able to leave my house maybe 5 times in the last month. I just can't take it anymore, and now he's acting completely different and making me feel like I'm going crazy. He keeps saying we have to stay together and work on things but I just don't even think it's worth it anymore. He's the one that suggested we break up in the first place, and now that I'm agreeing with him, he's changing his mind. We've been together for 4 years and we're buying a house so it's going to be really hard. But this song has just reassured me that I'm making the right decision and I need to follow through. I need my life back!

    This song is beautiful, I watched the video today in fell in love with Ms. Perri I first I was a little iffy on the video but I love it. It's different from all the music you hear today, today's music is all about being in the club partying like its the end of the world your last night, drinking or dance music that makes no sense. So for this video and song to sound different it stuck out to me that's why I love it.

    A lot of people mistake this song for a normal breakup when she is in fact singing about the devastation someone with narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder leave in the wake. Those type of damaged people truly have ice inside their souls. They will use and abuse you because to them people are just objects to be used.

    Being played and cheated on is worse enough but when the person decides to wind you up even more your through with it all even the notion to come back. Its neither compassion or love that made him come back it was ego and self-gratification. Maybe you've forgiven him in the past but that was the past and it's been one too many times. You realise your self worth after slowly being broken down betrayed and shattered by someone who was supposed to love you felt half alive barely there. Then you realise clarity reaches you your not a half your a whole all you need is you he can go and step on a Lego monument for all you care.

    The Lady I am in love with, we have loved each other for since we were very young and finally found each other. The situation went south, based on me not being able to find employ after relocating to be with her. I had issues of the heart unresolved for years. I became closed and defensive, and lied and mentally cheated. I did not handle my leaving to find a job in another city, reassuring her that I still love her but needed to fix my heart so I could be the best man for her. I did a lot of work to correct the root causes of the issue, and have been working very hard to prove my love to her. We are soul mates and everyone makes mistakes.
    We are now talking again and working through the hurt I caused. It can be done if both parties are willing. We are deeply in love, as soul mates are. When I heard this song it tore me apart, the pain of feeling her pain that I caused, is extraordinarily deep. But to heal, that pain needs to be resolved, and released. But this is exactly how she feels to a degree. But the deep love will win. And I am never going to do the things I did before. Fixing my heart was painful. And will be worth it in the long run, now to make amends and help win her trust and love back is my only goal. I cannot live without my Mo Anam Cara.

    I'm one of the girl who is suffering from the same situation. I was cheated by my boyfriend. He left me for no reason. When he had wounds in his life then I was with him all the time, and when I sank down in his love he left me alone very easily. And he came back after some months, but I don't want him back in my life. I trying to move on without him. It hurts a lot that someone can't imagine it without experiencing it. But I'm still moving foreword. I can't let anyone else enter in my heart, he broke my heart, but he is still there in my broken heart. Moving on with his all memories.

    When I listen this song, it is remind me to my exboyfriend. He leaves me for his study in abroad. And I know he has found a girls out side. He said that he don't want to make a relationship anymore, he want to study hard and he want me forget all memories. He left, he has gone. It hurts me very much. I feel down. He forgot all his promises. He broke my trust and he lost. I try to forget him. Eventhough I still loved him very much. I try hardly to delete him from my heart and my mind. He didn't understand how broke I am. And few years later, when I found a man who love me very much. He want me back. He apologize to me. He tried to come back and denied all the lies. I have learned to life without him. He want me gain. Please don't come back to me. 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! Who do you think you are? @jar of hearts! Thanks #christina
    I have to forget that man. I have to be strong, wiithout him I still have new life. And happines.

    This song makes me remember of my ex, how he cheated on me, as well as on many girls, yet he still says he wants me as well as he tells all the other girls. He won't admit it yet. But anyways he keeps collecting his jar of hearts, making every girl feel loved, but then he breaks them down. This song makes me remind me of this situation so much. I love Christina too, she has an amazing voice and I love her songs c: I'm sure this song reminds many girls of someone that broke their heart.
    Someone cold hearted that cheated on them and yet tries to come back.

    Yeah that's not what the song says at all. "I know I can't take one more step towards you
    Cause all that's waiting is regret" (This one is pretty self explanatory. She knows that she shouldn't go back to him because she will regret it.)
    "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. " (She hears that he is asking for her but it doesn't matter because She is too strong now to go back to him.)
    With those two quotes alone it's obviously a song about how she was with a guy that was all wrong for her. When she finally got over him and found happiness again, he came looking for her to "Have her one more time." She is telling him that it won't work because she is not the same person and she is much stronger now and doesn't need him. So basically it is a song about being stringer and not letting an ex-love return to your life and bring you down again.

    This song reminds me of my ex-husband of 7 years. He cheated on me 3 times during the course of our marriage. I finally left him after I learned of the last one. A few months later he was begging me to come back, telling me I was the love of his life. I love the part of the song where she says "i learned to live half alive" because that's how I felt when I was with him. He broke all his promises (i. E. Marriage vows) and would push me away (i. E. Ice inside your soul). The best part of this song for me is "but i have grown too strong to ever fall back in your arms". He definitely doesn't get to get me back.

    To sep 3 11: 05 the lyrics tell everyone that they had a relationship that was strong and intimate, her bf made promises to her. She thought that their relationship will endure forever. Unfortunately, the guy broke her heart. He has a tendency to have relationships with a lot of women and he also breaks their hearts. He is a philanderer. He realized his true love was his ex-gf. The singer or the woman in this song learned her mistakes and she won't let her heart broken again by her ex-bf whom she loved very much.

    This is my meaning of jar of hearts: when a girl falls in love very deeply with a guy that loves her deeply too, but he doesn't know it, he cheats on her and she is broken. The guy uses a 1000 other women's love and takes it away from them all, just to satisfy himself, so there really is no love in every new relationship he has, he lies and cheats with every women. Then he realizes that he already has his own love and didn't need to take it away from all those other ladies, his love was for the girl he dated a long time ago, he asks for her back but she refuses as her trust in him is damaged deeply and he hurt her heart beyond repair. She knows that she still loves him but this girl is not a fool, she knows that it's too late for this guy to take her back, he should of never left. She grows strong over her pain and learns to deal with the most painful and hurtful things in life, she knows she wont make this mistake again.

    To me, jar of hearts seems like a song telling us that love went wrong - E. G. Your boyfriend cheated on you. You feel the betrayal, the pain, the love you both had shared flow into your head. I love this song so much. It's so amazing and those memories you had with him, come right back to you. This song really relates to me - how he wanted me back after hurting me so much and how I said 'no'.

    To me jar of hearts means, like there is this boy that a girl dated, he broke her heart, and she has been trying to forget about I, but he keeps doming back with a jar of hearts that he stole and broke from other girls he dated. In the line which says "you know i can't take one more step towards you because all thats waiting is regret", is practically saying that if she goes any closer to him she will fall for him again, and all he will do is take her heart and break it! Well that's what I think it means! Btw I'm 11.

    I fell hard for dale the moment I met him. I was addicted to him and gave him my life. We were married for 30 years the last 20 were hell. He was an abusive alcoholic and ripped my heart out. On my 50 th birthday I told him I wanted a divorce and gave him a check to go away. His money is gone 2 years later and he's back thinking I'm his for the asking. He is ice cold inside and I hate him as much as I used to love him. This song is being delivered to him with the final divorce papers.

    When I hear this song I remembered my ex boyfriend, who is so handsome, having a 6 abs. He just want me because I am s***, we always s** every night, I was inloved with him, I loved all the s** we had. But one day he said that he don't love me and he wasted my virginity. Tthose hours that were spent in s** was useless. Now I am pregnant then he is not here anymore. Missed those sexes we had. I remembered that when we will s**, I will open my mouth first then pushing it with his p****, the way he s** so fast and the way I love it, I miss it.

    Every person we come across changes our lives. We try to not let the past affect us, yet its the past that molds us. This girl wanted so much to be loved. And how dare this guy steal that from her! This is a song about strength. She once was so vulnerable to the way he was doing her wrong and causing her pain. But finally, she can stand up for herself and tell him that he can never come back. She doesn't give in and she doesn't back down. Good for her!

    This song gives me strength. The lyrics remind me I deserve better than the way my ex-boyfriend treated me. I did nothing but love him, care about him, support him, worry about him, and treat him with respect. In return he promised me everything I had ever wanted in life, then when his life got rough, he tossed me aside to save himself. After the initial anger I started to blame myself, but every time I hear this song I remember that I am worth so much more than his bad treatment.

    She loved him, he didn't. I guess this was the kind of relationship that takes too long to end. It remains alive because of the person who is in love. When she finally gets over him after a long time of suffering and confusion, he wants her back. He was used to be loved. He keeps being selfish. Who does he think he is? Who do you think you are.

    Did this for 6 years. Rare to find a song where every single word of the lyrics I can 100% relate to. Jar of hearts resonates with me completely, because I still want to be with the person, even after all this time. But I refuse to allow it. If you're ever tempted to get back together with someone who has really hurt you, listen to this song a few times before making the phonecall.

    I've been there. Someone breaks up with you, or you them, and they want to come back around when they see you doing well without them. Or want to come crawling back when they realized they made a mistake by jumping ship. Seeing as how the person in this song had a jar full of hearts, it tells me they cheated. In my case, the guy that cheated on me moved on to a situation where he ended up depressed and started blowing up my phone.

    This song means the world to me. I've actually lived it!
    I was in love with this guy after one year he went out with another girl but he was still with me! Well he didn't tell me anything I had to find that out from my friends. And now he does everything he can to have me back. But you can't love someone who cheats on you right?
    It just broke my heart.
    Great song. I think I'm lucky I have a nice voice and sang this song in two of my concerts.

    This song to me was about: a nice girl who loved this boy that she was with, so much though he thought he could do better than her. He eventually finds a pretty girl and loves her. When he gets dumped and goes out with the other girl, he realizes that she wasn't the right one and he tries to get her back. She is smart realizing that he gave her scars and she will learn from her mistakes, declining the offer. This song means a lot to me and it has happened. We will all learn from our mistakes ❤❤❤☺.

    The song is the thoughts of a girl towards her ex boyfriend. He's not a nice guy, and the speaker's opinion of him is low, saying he has no feeling, 'from the ice inside your soul'. He gets around, and enjoys making women (including the speaker in this song) fall madly in love with him then moving on, leaving them damaged, 'running 'round leaving scars' when he's taken what he wants. The 'jar of hearts' refers to the metaphorical trophies he collects, the love of the string of girls who are behind him still waiting for him to return. The implication is he revisits them all when he can't find another heart to steal, but this speaker sets herself apart from the others and refuses to play his game, and rejects him. This song is her triumph but it's tinged with sadness because she's so damaged and disappointed at herself for loving a man who clearly has no morals.

    In the last couple days I was with my fiance eddie G. Naranjo, he tried to take a liberty with me that no one should ever attempt with a person. He told me he would be with me again when we got back to new orleans. I asked him, "who do you think you are? " I loved this man with every breath of life in my body, I still feel we are soul-mates and I truly believe he felt the same way. Yet men being as hard-headed as they are, the promise he made to ride back with me from houston, he didn't keep. He said, "malinda, you said some things. " it's true I did shame him heavily for what he tried to do with me. But I knew in my heart he would be in danger if he would decide to ride back in the tacoma pick up truck I gave his 'friend' a ride to houston to buy, which is the reason I had both eddie & his 'friend' promise me that he would ride back with me in my volvo before we left new orleans. Eddie decided to ride back in the truck and when they reached 310 & i-10 east @ 5am, december 3, 2007 - an 18wheeler pulled onto the interstate from the shoulder and hit the passenger fender of the truck and flipped it twice, eddie's air bag didn't deploy and he died the next day @ 3: 02pm. I miss him terribly still and on that day I know I lost the love that I will always love the most.

    When I heard this song, I was just like in her position. Used to love this guy a lot, but smart enough to realize and wake up. Things always got the expiration date, just like their relationship which has ended. When this guy who hurted her try to get back, she won't be fool enough to fall back again, after what she'd been through, the process of being broken, rising up on her own, and those aint easy. So she aint gon' be a fool for the second time.

    To me, this song reminds me of a past relationship that I just had. My ex broke with me because he felt like he still wanted to talk to other girls. I understood that even though I was hurt. But a few days later he was begging me to get together with him again. And a week after that he broke up with me again! After that, obviously, I was done but after a few days he told me he still had feelings for me and wanted to be with me. This song expresses exactly how I feel.

    Some people don't leave love alone, yet others don't ever get a fair share. It reminds me of a boy who loved another girl while he was dating me. Now we have both left primary school I feel bad for all of the things I said and miss him soo badly. At least he was honest, don't take love for grantage, because it will swing back and hit you when you are least expecting it!

    The meaning of this song is a girl who loved a boy sincerely and then he dumped her (maybe he cheated or something) and then he wants her back. But she wont take him back because she knows whats right for her. Shes saying that she became better and then in the middle of nothing he comes in and asks for her back. Shes smart enough not to accept him.

    The meaning of this song is that she thought she could fall for you and then when she did he turned around and stabbed her in the back. She shows and tells him how she feel about him and she tells him that she wanted their love to last, but because of him she knows she can't trust him. Even after showing him what he has done wrong, he goes around steeling girls' hearts and using them.

    This song means so much to me. To me it's about a girl who dated a boy who ended up breaking up with her just like the other girls he has dated. I listen to this song when I'm alone (to be honest I sing to it and singing it I actually makes me cry as to how meaningful this song is to me). The writer of this song should get a reward.

    I think this song about a girl who had a boyfriend. But they broke up because the boy make a big mistake and hurt the girl. And then, the boy wanna back to the girl, and the girl doesn't want to accept the boy anymore because of his mistake, and the scars the girl felt. ,
    I don't know exactly about it, I just learn to know how to find the meaning of this song, if anybody want to teach me, i'll appreciate it :)

    Isn't there such a someone in everyones life? The one you're dreaming of all day and night and who plays with your heart like it was a punching ball? And after a time that one hurted you so much you think you will never ever get over it, you promise yourself never to love somebody again. And after all this pain there may come the one who loves you as much as you are worth it. Like we all hope so. Dum spiro spero. I will hope as long as I am breathing! Love this song: d

    Forgiveness is the meaning. She waited for the love promised to her. Something could have happened within the period of waiting. The one she's waiting for could have faced trials and other challenges that made the other person break promises. Possibly, promises were broken only because of miscommunication or probably lack of communication from both ends. One boldly made the first move and stepped away for some reasons after. Possible reason could be fear. I don't think a person with a cold heart will still come back for her. The person loves her so much it seems like the person doesn't know how to express the love because it is very possible that the person was once hurt before that expressing love is such a vulnerable thing to do. When you have been badly hurt before. You'll lose sight on how to freely express your feelings but sooner or later no matter how you control your feelings and hide it. The more you control the more it will come out of you. And once it does. The more a person becomes vulnerable and scared of the emotions that the only way is to step away. I hope she will forgive such a person and help the person face vulnerability because they truly love each other. And the song obviously states she loves this person so much because if not she will not be hurt this much. They love each other they need to learn how to communicate and clear things out.

    It is about being strong, about realizing you are important and anyone should hurt you, it is about having enough strenght to say stop, stop playing with my heart, even to that person you love the most but you know he is not worth because he wont care. It is about getting away from thing that hurt you even if you love them. For me, the most meaningfull part of the song is "you're gonna catch a cold from de ice inside your soul".

    It dosn't have to be a song about heartbreak but a song about the love. I'm your biggest fan girl don't you know that I'd travel round the world just to see your show and I will sing along know your every song hang on every word you say. It can be about somebody who is just so nice that they gain the love of so many people. They might just be collecting a jar of hearts but not by choice. Like a celebrity who has stolen the hearts of millions of people. I'm your biggest fan i'll follow you until you love me! This song however is of people who get into a number of relationships, are dishonest and break hearts.

    I'm a male singer, I always do this song as part of my set.
    I used to be the kind of guy to sleep around a lot and not really care about the way I hurt anyone in the meantime. I think I lost one of the most incredible girls I've ever met like this, and I regret it a ton.
    I sing it about myself, and who I was to remind myself to never become that person again, it's not good. I don't change any of the lyrics except the very last two "who do you think you are? "'s - which I change to "who did i think i was, what had i become. "

    This song reminds me so much of my best friend and her complicated relationships. She liked this one guy a whole lot and the guy pretended to like her back. He said I love you babe and hugged her but then broke her heart saying "i take it all back and i only said that stuff cuz i was feeling weird" and now he goes around doing the same thing to every girl. So when he finally went back to her after running out of other girls to lie to she detected him and wouldn't stop singinng this song. Love you so much liz. You're way toobgood for him. 143 :)

    This song is about a girl who was deeply in love with a boy that pretended to love her back, and did for only a little while. Then the boy left her and went in search of other girls. The boy stole every one of those girls hearts and scarred them for life. Then he broke up with them and went on to the next girl. Eventually he got a reputation for being a heartbreaker and went back to the first girl. But the girl was too mad to go back to him because she has grown too strong to give in to her old love. In the music video it shows the boy becoming desperate and trying to get every girl he ever broke up with because he is alone. But all the girls, and the first girl, have learned their lesson to stay away from because they are all scarred from the time they spent with him. Their emotional wounds are so deep that they are beyond repair and they know that going back to him will only lead to more regret. By the end of the song she has explained to him that he is too full of himself and he's not getting any of them back, and that her heart has been metaphorically ripped out and "the light in her eyes" has faded and that he broke all her promises.

    He is breaking up with girls over and over agian form the next girl to the next and your just one of the victioms. This is about the cold jerk that goes around loving girls and kissing them and then breaks up with them for another girl. This is from a girls that has experiensed this and has learned to live with her broken heart and thinks he need to be given a leason and how he thinks the world ravolvise around him and he can do anything he wants. And he is colecting a "jar" (colection) of hearts he stoll from girls that are now broken. There is no way that the girls he hurt can't love agian. After this boy is throw with the girl, the girl can only live half a life with there broken heart. And how when he wants this girl back he can't get her because of what he did to her. It takes her forever to get over this.

    I had been abused by a boyfriend and I became his little puppet. He isolated me from my family and friends. And I allowed it all to happen because he made me think it was only out of love. He treated me with disrespect and expected respect and love in return. I finally got out of his tight grip with the help of family and my supportive friends. I now see all the wrong and trauma he caused in my life. He wasted two years of mine and I will never get them back :( he would do anything to have me back but I need to go and be the person he wont allow me to be. I need to remember what it's like to be strong and independent and free. I need to be me.

    To me, this song means that men are to quick to turn away from a relationship that is going well. Only because he is afraid of being hurt but he won't admit it. This is a song by a girl of course, and you all know how girls react to this kind of guy she sings about. We always think he did it just to do it. We always think it was because the guy thought it was a game. I myself realize that us girls need to really think about it before we go blaming the guy for something he didn't do. Some guys actually have a heart and we need to realize this.

    A guy I once dated, who was two years older than me, he was popular with the ladies. There fights and break ups but he would always some how get me running right back to him, it was said by some people that he used me to make girls jealous, we dated for a long time so what I felt for him was mor than just liking him, I thought I loved him. It's been six months now since I finally broke up with him for good and left him but I still think about him alot and the feelings are still completely there. #Feelplayed.

    Wow! This song is sooo relateable for me! It reminded me of this guy who just couldn't decide just who he was in love with! When he actually ended up liking me (yes I actually liked him back) what do you know. He broke my heart a few weeks later! Well what else do you know but I found out he liked me again. A few more weeks later! I was totally like "no way pal!!! U had your chance with me and you threw it away!!! " so when I heard this song I liked it immediately because of my past experiance!

    For me personal it was about someone who kept leaving and trying to come back and I let him come back and keep coming back until finally I just didn't and so this song was kind of the kiss off I was looking for cause I am not a mean person I am a lover not a fighter and so this is a ballad kiss off which is perfect, it is a song that gave me closure.

    It means that life isn't fair, and that sometimes you don't get a second change to retry. It shows how love can broke all of your feelings, and that sometimes when it is over, to that person, it means that it is over for good. Sometimes you just have to carry on, and try your best to forget the past, the past is the past, and what you want is to wait for the life which is coming, into your life. Take care.

    Two people who where together, they broke up, and one person was left heart broken, while the other person didn't care at all and moved on. But later the person that moved on wanted the other person back, but the other person is basicly saying no, I don't want you, better yet, I don't need you then he/she moves on for good and wants nothing to do with the other person and describes how the other person dosen't care and how cold they actually are.

    As a songwriter myself, I believe that some songs are often two faced, like they say one thing but mean another. I think this song is truly about how this person christina perri liked was not a very good person. She wanted to not be with him but couldn't stop herself. That has happened to me as well; it is something you just can't control. The "jar of hearts" she referrs to is something I think is referring to having him "steal all the girl's hearts". When you say you've stolen my heart, that means I've fallen in love with you. So basically this person, I think is a person who goes around making people like him and leaving them and scarring them (running round leaving scars). I loved this song because it related so much to me and it reminded me of a poem I once wrote in so many ways. Jar of hearts truly is a remarkable song. I cannot thank christina perri enough for bringing into my life. -anon.

    Harry potter's song to lord voldemort, he; s saying when it says "running 'round leaving scars" as in when voldemort tried to kill harry and left a scar and also when he goes around killing people leaving mental scars on peoples families. "collecting your jar of hearts" is lord voldemorts many pieces of souls that he has created to try and become immortal. "tearing love apart" tearing families apart, and also when harry's mother lily tried to protect harry, a shield of pure love protected him. "ice inside your soul" because there isn't much of his soul left as it has been cast around everywhere. "dont come back for me" harry is sort of begging him to leave him alone so he can have a normal life.

    Jar of hearts is based on christina perri's own experience with the failure of her marriage. It is about a girl who has had an intense love for a guy and he has caused her grief by cheating on her and she regrets being with him because of this, although it scars her because she loves him the most. It describes her journey post-breakup, how her heart slowly heals itself and now the guy wants her back in his life. The chorus depicts her standing up for herself and not giving in to his persuasiveness. What makes this song so heroic is how perri motivates anyone who hears it to not give in to someone who you know will let you down.

    A certain person keeps making others fall in love with them, and doing so, takes their hearts, forcing them to live without it (half alive), because the person just simply goes away with the heart, collecting more and more hearts, leaving others in the dust, but then the person decides to come back asking for another chance after breaking every promise, but no one wants that person back. Instead, they warn the person by telling that their empty soul will make them sick.

    This girl loved this guy well and truly as did he. But while they were dating he didn't know what he had at that moment in time. So he ran off to another woman. Then they finished then the guy realized what he had when he was with this other girl. After a couple of days he ran back to the girl telling her how much he loved her. But all of her feelings for him had gone. So she told him to jog on and don't bother her.

    You know, the meaning on the side states theat the song was about a girl who got her heart broken by a boy who liked another girl. But perosnally, to me, I think the song, (and music video!) suggests that it wasn't one other girl. "collecting jar of hearts" seems more than two. I love this song, and can relate to it so well. Maybe that affects how I interpreted it. I don't know.

    Very true and meaningful! I want to sing this song to a man who is not at all a man because he is just playing around. He's such a player and a liar and after I discovered his lies, he wants me to give him another chance? I felt being abused for the number of chances I gave him. But he remains the same. I don't think I should give him another chance anymore. I want to throw him away yet my heart is telling me to hold on. Such a fool!

    When I hear this song, it reminds me of the guy I loved. I ended it with him yesterday. My friend told me "he just wants to get into my pants" and evidently that was true. So I want to sing this song to him and have all the girls I know that he has done the same thing to come out and just stare at him to make him feel uncomfortable and make him feel terrible for what he has done. I'm happy for this plan. The songs meaning is basically about a guy who was ruined many girls lives and had broken their hearts and took half of their lives away because he was almost everything to them until they realized the truth about him.

    Duuhhmm, all the pain that I've already forgotten came alive to me again body and soul coz of this song. I've been in that same situation for almost three times and it really hurts me a lot. But then, it's not me who had the big loss but them. They had made a big mistake. I always had my principle that helped me, it goes like this, "once you hurted me or left me, i will never be with you again. "
    Why would I always end up on guys with jar of hearts?

    Whenever I hear this song it reminds me of my ex. We were so happy all the time we had fun we kissed and basically did everything together. Whenever I think about a jar of hearts its the love you have gathered throughout the time. If you just started there will only be a few hearts but if you stay together longer your jar fills depending on how much you love eachother. When the glass is full eather you marry or you break up. Ok? My ex and my glass was as full as it could be. Then one day I saw something that popped the jar of hearts the lid flew of our love was gone. He was in his bedroom with my best friend. I had lost the most important people in my life. I didn't fight like the person who is singing the lyrics. I had no idea my bf would do that and it had turned out the of them had been cheating me for one year already.

    For me is about his exhusband. She wrote this song when she divorced him. Is about learning that he really ddn't care about your feelings and that isn't the one for you and that he only makes you feel weak so he can feel strong. This is about getting over him. Learning that you don't need me and leave him, and then he realizes what he'd lost and wants you back but you already know his games so you don't want him.

    The song is about her once being in a relationship with a boy (possibly her first love/crush) and it didn't work out a very sad break up. She had learned many lessons and realized that she couldn't see him because the feelings of hurt that she carried from the past. The boy now a man has grown and realized that he lost out on something special now is looking for her and wondering what may of happened to her. She also has grown and is healing but still carries the scars and will questions his motives. I think that may of us have a relationship or an experience that has happen in this way.

    Jar of hearts by christina perri is about heartbreak and the boy that broke her heart tring to get her back but she has to keep fighting to keep him away because if she lets him in again he will brerak her heart again. It is about love and hate, hearts of stone and pure love, peacce at war and that a broken heart may hurt at the start but if you keep fighting then it will get better and the advise is not to let the person that broke your heart the first time back in because he/she will only break it again.

    Personally, jar of hearts is about heartbreak. About a man who used women and broke their hearts. He took their souls with him as he made his way to his next victim. This is just the view of one woman, held captive by her pain and just learning to let go, as the man decides to step back into her life. It is about mistrust, sadness, heartache and learning to stand up for yourself.

    I am grateful for christina's song. I was separated from my husband and he absolutely broke my heart and broke all his promises to me. I had to work so hard to become happy and this song absolutely mirrors my heart. Especially when he found out I had moved on, began seeing someone else and then decided he wanted me back. Who do you think you are is all I could say to him. Bravo christina.

    I think it means some guy broke her heart by cheating or something like that. And after a while he comes back saying he wants her back. She says no u've made a choice to cheat on me and I'm not taking you bc. I think that's what she meant "i've learned to live half alive". And "colleting your jar of hearts" means u've done this with many girls other than me.
    Anyways I love the song so much! ^_^.

    This song makes me think of exactly what I never want to happen with me and my boyfriend. We've been together for 2 years now and never had a single fight but just recently we broke up for like a day and then couldn't stand it anymore and now we're back together! We're really happy together and we're gonna try to spend more time together. Something really weird about our relashinship though is that his best-friend is my ex-boyfriend. I really creeps me out.

    The man she once fell in love with left her broken hearted and he does the same to many more women. However she finds a way to get over her broken heart and gets him back by saying what she thianks of him (standing up to him) then she gets her life back again. He also looks like he's ding because she could be so strong now that he is not the powerful one and he becomes too weak. All it took was the first person he broke their heart to get their own back on him and he would realise what he's done. :)

    I tihnk the meaning of jar of hearts is saying that the guy she used to be in love with was a player and did her and now he regrets loosing her too many times and tries to come back but she's grown over him and won't take him back again she won't forgive the way he treated her and how he made her feel. Basically she's saying we're done, over, no longer coming back. She's looking forward and not coming back. Sh'es moving on.

    I think it's about a woman who was in love with a man truly, deeply and madly. But what she didn't know about him was that he was a player he flirted with other women after that made empty promises full of lies then he married them and left them the next night. The woman gave him her all and he took her heart and broke it just by leaving her. She went on with her life hating him. The next night he came crawling back to her. She was tired of getting hurt so she didn't take him back. But she forgave him and told him what she felt then she walked in the cold with tears in her eyes obiviously heartbroken.

    When I hear this song for the first time, I think this song about someone (in this content a girl) who loved her boyfriend very much with full of her life. But the boy made her hurt, then they broke up. The girl actually was very sad but she tried to wake up and started new life. And when she successed to built her new life, the boy came back and want to be her botfriend again. But the girl ignored him because of her hurt in the past.

    It was written about my ex-husband, who keeps cheating on me, leaving me for them, then coming back when he grows tired of them. So far he has done it to 3 women (some have had children that got attached to him too), each relationship lasted over two years before he ended it and came back to me. I don't know how many he collected with his first wife of 21 yrs. Last august, he came home 3 hours late, I had enough and divorced him. Now he says he wants to come back, yet he's still seeing this last gal and they are hooking up with men at swingers joints.

    Boys are given the chance to prove how much they love the girl. And its up to them if they'll just blew it up. But make sure that once you blew that chance you won't come back to her and beg. Some girls. Won't accept you even if you tell them the words I. Love. You. Maybe they thought that it's hard to believe on someone that you once gave your full trust but that someone just trashed it. O:)
    But for those guys who came back and beg cause they want them back. Please, if you really love her. Don't give up. Please be patient. Maybe the she still loves you. And she just keep on denying it 'cause she's afraid that she might get hurt again. Don't give up guys!
    But I think it's better if you didn't hurt her at the very first place =)

    Its about a guy playing a girls heart, he would go round collecting there hearts and smashing them, leaving them alone and desperate. He would play her, not realizing how much it meant to her, using the same lines he used with every other girl. She got over it and he came back pleading, but she asked him not to come back but cause she was worth more then that.

    This is not about a guy cheating or breaking a heart. The real meaning goes back to a serial killer who dismantles bodies of those he kills and collects their hearts in jars. The twist is that he does has his dead girlfriend's heart in a jar as well. He killed her. Perri's uncle was a serial killer and actually abducted her when she was little. The cops got involved - sad story.

    Summarization to all you peoples supposably meanings, its about a player who ended up realizing that she was the one he loved, but she wouldn't except the lies anymore. She couldn't take it.
    And just to let you know, making the meanings longer doesn't mean it's the best, or that it has more meaning, or that it's right. It just means you wasted your time writing something just to feel like you accomplished something, when in real life, you accomplished nothing.
    Yea, well bye.

    I was once hurt by a man who went round breaking hearts. He was going out with three other girls when I was dating him and it was another girl who he was dating that told us we were all being cheated on. She had been suspicious and checked his phone. She had used her phone to bring us together and broke the news to us in a meet. I have been less trusting with men ever since and my confidence has gone.

    This song reminds me of a guy who I went out with for over 12 years who cheated on me with one of my best friends. He tried to say sorry and admitted to me about everything, but I later found out that he had cheated on my old best friend with her mother. He is just like the man in the song. Collecting jars of hearts and tearing lives apart.

    This song suits my current emotions & feelings, just broke up by my ex, just because he wishes to play around outside to continue to break more girls' heart & does not want any commitment after being together for 3 years plus. And he only wishes us to be close friends which I can't deal with my feelings towards him if I agree with him. I still misses him but I will continue to try my best to forget about him.

    Jar of hearts mean, that a boy you really loved is collecting the " jar of heart " and is tearing love upart. That means he hurted you so much and broked your heart so many times and when he wants to come back you don't want to, you don't want him to come back at all. A phrase " you're gonna catch a cold, form the ice inside your soul " that means that a boy doesn't know what love is he has a cold soul and all he doesn't care about is the feeling we have, he just break's them and teares it upart. He had many of girls and all he does is " running round leaving scars and colecting other hearts"
    Thankyou.

    This song reminds me of my ex fiance. A few people who I was hanging around wit the time caused our relationship to break down after I had returned to london to care for my grandfather. He had his mother and step brother threaten my life and kept me from moving on for almost 10 months, seeing and dating other girls behind my back but maintained a sexual and romantic relationship with me (i fell pregnant and miscarried his son in that time) before he finished it just before christmas to leave me for a 32 year old. I have now met and started a relationship with someone else but he now keeps trying to contact me to get me back on side while still pursuing this other woman. He left me half alive, grieving for our son and hurting over him and now he wants me one more time.

    I think she was cheated on with alot of girls and she caught him. He so called regretted it and wanted her back. But she is thinking "wtf, who do you think you are?! " he is going around cheating on everybody, breaking their hearts. She is regretting dating him now. So I basically think its means, you can't just break someone's heart and expect them to forgive you and get back together.

    For me, its the boy girl thing too, but some of it also applies to a girl I thought was my friend, but she decided that I was the one with the problems and broke the friendship, starting rumors that were so bad I lost all of my other friends and ended up having to move away. A few years later, when I had moved back, she came up to me, ignoring the horrible rumors she spread about me, and wanted to be my friend. I couldn't be friends with someone who hurt me so deeply.

    This song touches me so much. My first love became my world and was the best thing in my life. But one night, he cheated. He got what he deserved, the girl he cheated on me with called it rape and he's been in jail for two years now. But there was a time when he got out and tried to win me back saying he loved me and that it was a mistake an that it wasn't rape. Everyone told me to never see him again. My mom, dad, brother, sister. I knew I should hate him but I stilled loved him and it killed me to have to lie to his face, "i don't love you anymore". This song represents that time when he tried to get me back. I remember hearing this song and realizing I had to close that chapter of my life. Atleast now i'll know how to spot a guy with a jar of hearts.

    This song means of a girl who never get back together with her ex as he had broke her heart and their promises. And I surely the girl really regret for loving this guy so much, and now she sing the song to tell him how she hate him in a proper way. That's why she only say "who do you think you are? " and not say any bad word to show her anger and hatred towards her ex. This thing happen to my ex of my boyfriend when my boyfriend try to get her back. What a life! : '(

    I think it means that this guy just goes around breaking girls hearts and what she kind of meant was like he 'lives' of the broken hearts because he's always done it. And how she says she is much stronger and how you've already done it once and I learn from my mistakes kind of thing, and how it took really long for her to get back on her feet and how she regrets even kissing him.

    This song is about a man called Anthony H. from Texas. He married his true love after hard work of convincing her. Then he took her away from her home country and family because duty was calling and true love follows everywhere, so she did. She ended up in the usa in texas. Not even one year into the marriage he stared cheating on her, again and again and again. One day she found out-by that time they had beautiful daughter (emily) and she stayed with him, forgave him for replacing her with other women as soon as she was not around him. She decided to forgive him, so emily could have a chance at a healthy family. As soon as she was gone again he did it again. He replaced her with another woman and then again and again. He had lost so much of him self. Her heart was broken, shattered. He asked her to come back she did. He did it again and also kept getting worse in his physical abuse and after having her heart ripped out of her chest and stepped on, besoiled with muddy shoes, kicked and stabbed to make sure she was broken, as broken as he is, she decided that it was enough for her. His soul is ice cold, hers isn't and emily needs her mommy to keep her safe from the man that wants to also break her heart. Emilys mommy will never fall back into his arms, I am half alive right now, but I better everyday. He broke all his promises. Don't come back at all!

    This song can look like it is between to lovers. But it can also mean that the dark side or satan is stealing people souls. She is tired of it and wants to turn toward christ. She wants her soul back and at the end of the video it shows how the darkness in her changes to the light of christ. The man represents satan (dark clothes) and the good or christ is in the white clothes of the singer. When she gets her soul back she defeats the demon.

    She falls for this guy, she believes he's the one for her. She then comes to realize he isn't & he is just good for breaking hearts. He gets these women to fall for him deeply, to just break their hearts in the end. Then when he does come to realize she's the one for him it's too late now. As she has learned not to let any man do that to her again. A life lesson she wished she didn't need to learn. It's like fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Then she learns how to pick up the pieces & moves on, in hoping someday she will find her one true love.

    Jar of hearts os about a man who has been playing many women. This one in particular has had enough, and is standing up for herself and all the other women he has played. She is saying with all the ice he has in his sole, he is sure enough going to catch a cold. She has learned to live half alive because of him. She thinks back to when they were together, all the memories they shared. However, he needs to stop doing what he is doing, and find himself.

    When I heard this song I said someone understands my pain. There is a man I've known for 27 years and he has broken my heart everytime I see him - he has destroyed so many hearts of women over and over and he won't stop. He keeps coming back looking for me over and over and I know its me who is allowing him to come back and I try over and over again to resist. My mind knows he is poison but my heart is treacherous. I plead with him to let me go to release me but the cycle continues. He picks up another woman breaks her heart and holds on to dear life for me. This song was written about him. Please pray for me to be set free!

    It makes me feel that I'm not alone.
    But I like maddi jane to sing this. Sorry. Please understand. I love christina perri too.
    This song remind me not give all of you for the one you love, you should give some to yourself. So when this time comes that the one you love breaks your heart. You should live. It doesn't deserve your love if it just breaks it all of the time.

    It's a man who is so emotionally closed off to everyone in his life. He doesn't have light of his own, so he takes it from the women in his life. He's a player. He gives a little bit to these women, so they feel special and they end up giving their hearts to him and he just continues to take more and more from these women. He is controlling and will manipulate women who will allow him to do it. The girl singing in this song has had enough and has finally grown stronger as time has gone by without him and she no longer has a need for him. So, at the end, she takes back what he took from her and filled the light back up in her heart. I know, because I lived that story in the song.

    I think that this song is about a girl that was dating this guy but found out he was cheating and didn't love her as much as she loved him. Breaking up was really tough for her and it left her a scar and "half a heart", so to speak. She then found out that he was looking for her again but she grew stronger over time and was finding out who he really was. Now that guy is still running around and doing what he did to her, but this time to everyone else and that's why christina perri has the /chorus as. " and who do you think you are, running 'round 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"
    That my view on the song and I find this song could also be related to as of someone dying and god is taking everyone's hearts even when they are young or old (i believe in god, so I mean this in a good kinda way).

    This song is about this girl who loed a boy with all her heart and even though he loved her back he didn't want to change who he was for her. They break up and though it almost kills her she manages to move on, while he becomes pretty much a player. So one day he realizes what he really feels but things don't go as planned, she's moven on without him and now asks him who does he think he is to act like that, to damage more hearts than he can count, as referred to "jar of hearts" he wants her back but she doesn't because she stronger now than she was before him.

    It reminds me of the hurt in love which I've been through now and then. When I look at him, I know I fall into him, do so does he. But just a moment later I know we're apart. We could never belong to each other. I'm listening to this song and it hurts inside
    I know I can't take one more step towards you
    cause all that's waiting is regret.

    This song is about a girl who is heartbroken, probably was cheated by the guy she loved the most. And the guy she loved is a playboy, collecting all the girls' "hearts" from them, leaving an empty space in the void, not caring if they got hurt because his soul is ice. Even if all that happened, the girl doesn't break down, she grew stronger not weaker. She remembered how to put back the light into her eyes and together, along with the other girls the guy played on, they battle against him. And in the end, they win and the guy drops down in defeat and the "hearts" goes back to their owners.

    Jar of hearts may describe the attitude of someone who is care free, immature and unable to hold on to a relationship. Someone who doesn't care about the feelings of others and someone who is not contented and unappreciative of what he/she have. In a real world scenario, many relationships fail because of insensitivity towards the feelings of your boy/girl friend which may lead eventually to heartbreaks and regrets.

    My meaning is, when the guy you love breaks your heart. Then you try to forget and when you do. He tries to get you back.

    When I heard this song brought back memories of my ex boyfriend I was with for many years, cheated on me with an older woman he worked with. He tried to come back and denied all the lies. Painful but was better off. Now the that woman he ended up marrying and good luck to her with his karma and jar of hearts.

    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 read more "78887888.

    This song is the story of a person who takes the best from people, then leaves them like they are no longer worthy. Until they come back. One more time. To see if there is anything left of their heart for them to take from them. And this is also the story of the one who said enough. I have been putting my life back together. You cannot come back and take more from me. Don't come back at all.

    This song is good for people that fighting from their cancer or something the way it say, 'who do you think you are' and 'tearing love apart' prove it. Just like they say it to their cancer or else who do you think you are. And I think ' collecting the jar of heart' is when the cancer or something take someone's life that is what I feel and I think it's the meaning.

    This song means that she was with someone who she thought really loved her but then he did something awful liked cheated on her with someone else. Then he came back and said that he wants her but she was like too bad. You already hurt enough girls. Hence jar of hearts. She left him behind and it was the right thing to do because now he can't hurt her anymore.

    Jar of hearts: collecting love through many relationships. This song talks about what many relationships go through, when two people are together but do not have the same feelings for each other. When love isn't mutual. It sounds like she's broken up with a man whos been going through many relationships without having true feelings of love for any of them. Maybe even using them. Therefore she feels let down and "scard", but has grown stronger from the experiance and now knows better.

    This song is about a woman who loved a man dearly, but he was a player who had been with many other girls before her, and after he dumped her, she found out about the many other women who loved him and received the same fate. Then when he had no one to turn to, he went crawling back, where she rejected him knowing he would run off to the next girl once again when the time came.

    Suits my situation v well. My girl(or so I thought to be) played with me for four years. Hiding N. Lying n what not. Atlast my brain took over my heart n I had to. Take a decision. She now realizes what she did. Begs n pleads. But I guess I. Have gone numb. I still wish her the best in life. But she isn't getting me back. Ever!

    It's about a relationship, that went wrong. The man or woman (it depends on the singer gender or sexuality) being sung about, has gone around having relationships with many others. Hence "jar of hearts. "
    but. Has also being destroying them, hence "running 'round leaving scars" and "tearing love apart. "
    it also talks about conquering that issue. And the feelings of adultery, hence "i have grown to strong, to ever fall back in your arms"
    I believe it talks about the man/woman wanting back that person after committing adultery, but being strong enough to ignore it. Hence "and now your back, you don't get to get me back"
    Zoe's idea of the meaning of jar of hearts.

    Christina perri gave a lot of meaning to this song. I like it the instant I heard it. I connect it to my ex who's been having fun with me all the time, although he actually is deeply is love with another girl. When I was just about to express my feelings to him, he denied all our fun together and took the other girl as a girlfriend. I cried nearly every day. Yeah, it means a whole lot to me. But now they're not together again and I have a nicer, cuter boyfriend. Am I a jinx for him? I just like this song very much.

    This song means to me that my boyfriend dumped me for another girl. She was blonde and I was brunette. She was a cheer leader and I was a soccer player. So, then it took a lot of time for me to forget him. Eventually I did. After a couple weeks I saw him dump the girl and leave her just like that. I could tell she was hurting like I was. I walked over and told her that I felt the same way. Shortly after he dumped her, he came to my house and asked me out again. He kept on repeating himself saying that he made a mistake and that he was sorry. My only response to him was, "no. If i go toward you i'm afraid that you will steal the other half of my heart. And i'm saving it for someone who won't abuse it and trap it in a jar. " I just couldn't trust him anymore. I moved on. He can't and won't give me happiness.

    It's about a man who is a boy. He pushes and pulls a woman until he shakes her apart. He loves her and destroys her all at once, and it rips her to shreds. What remains takes so long to put back together, and as the last piece is put in place, he returns, only to destroy her once again.
    This song is written after the final time she allows him back in her life. She can't take the torture any more, and she finally declares she isn't letting him hurt her anymore.

    If you love someone so much learn who they are before you put a lot in to the relationship and don't expect others to make you whole other wise it will be really hard to feel that way agian best song in the world. I think this song is about a girl who loves the guy but can't seem to stay with him, even though she knows he loves her to. So she rights a song about her feelings. She learned to live half a life with him, but he keeps coming back for her. He trys to find another women that he will love, but can't seem to find any that he feels the same way about. So she says who do you think you are? She just doesn't understand that he still loves her. He wants to collect her heart again! That's what I think it means to me, and I hope you understand what I mean!

    This song for me, is what we go through with every person we fall in love with and they break our hearts. You can never trust them, or let them love you again. I cannot tell you how this song has touched my heart and speaks my feelings in so many ways. I am going to get a tattoo with a few verses of this song (if not the whole thing!) I want to have it with me always. I never thought a song could be so personal when it wasn't written by me or for me.

    This song reminds me of my ex-boyfriend who cheated on me for another younger woman. I don't think he ever really cared about me. I found out when I came home from work one night and I found a pair of underwear that wasn't mine on our bedpost. He brought her to our house while I was at work. In fact, she's probably out having s** with the baster right now unless she left him.

    This song is probably about a girl who broke up with this boy she really used to like. Anyway, something went wrong like he cheated on her or something. Then she broke up with him because he probably cheated on her or something. Now he's all trying to get her back and she's all like you cheated on me. Then she wrote a song about how he broke her heart. It's a shame, he probably went and did it to other girls too. Boys are really something. It sounds like she's really torn up about it. And he's out doing the same thing to other girls. That boy sounds like a real jerk face. Whatever he did, he sure didn't learn his lesson.

    He (an ex) is going around breaking all girls hearts and she has had enough, she doesn't want him to come back to her, he has finally seen who he really is and is not afraid to tell him that he is not better than her 'who do you think you are'. 'don't come back at all' sums up the whole song for me, she has had enough! There is a lot to learn from this song.

    The song is about a girl who never felt loved or whole. There was never that loving light in her parents eyes or that acknowledging smile that makes a young person feel secure and cared for. As a result she always felt she was somehow not good enough and full of flaws. Consequently she sought partners who were similarly cold and lacking in feeling. No matter how hard she tried she could never thaw her partner's heart, went through years of being only half alive. And she's still trying to get away.

    The boy lost the love the girl loved the most. They must have many beautiful moments together, but after all, they broke up. I think the boy didn't appreciate the girl and their love enough to continue this relationship. And although the girl still love the boy, she don't wanna come back. This is maybe the hardest decision and make her so hurt to do it, but she does! He don't deserve.

    I think for me this song is about a girl being dumped by her "boy". And she try to live without him, she thinks that her "boy" only do whatever he wants, he break promises to the girl. She remember the first time they kiss, while the "boy" dumped her away.
    So, the girl thinks that "don't come back to me at all". For me the girl still love him, but the she have become stronger that when the "boy" wants to come back to her, she doesn't want to come back to him.

    I think this song is about a girl who shared great, real, deepest love her and his heart could give. But he left because he didn't realised or he was scared of their love. Months or years pasts. He is back. And he is sure of her love. And he knows that she wants to be with him. But he didn't know that know she knows that he doesn't deserve her, no matter how big their love is. He left once. He will leave again! She is bigger than him. She is stronger! She always knew what their love means, he didn't! And that's why he don't deserve her!

    Someone who kissed you and held your hand down the stairs. He lock the door to a dark room and with his hands on your hips he made the rest of the world nonexistent. He was the first to kiss you that way and tell you things you had never heard before. One day, he will think about you and remember and come back and want you again. You will have grown to strong to forgive him for forgetting you. Who does he think he is assuming he can just have your heart?

    For me this song is about a guy who didn't know the real meaning of love, he treated her so badly, that she desides to stop the pain by getting out of his life. And when she finally can continue whit her life, he comes back asking for another chance. But she knows better this time, she's stronger and she is not willing to loose her heart to someone that doesn't even know what love is all about. This song remind me of my ex-boyfriend, he didn't care about me.

    And who do you think you are, runnin' round leaving scars.
    Serial heartbreaker wants you back in his life. You awake with a vengence, wondering why you want me back when all you're gonna do is hurt me. I love you, and I died when you left, but I'm not gonna fall for your lies again. I learned to live on my own, and I don't need you to come and make more mistakes.
    From the ice inside your soul.
    Don't come back for me.

    This song reminds me of a guy who used me when I was 16 for s**. He was the worst thing that could have happened to me and I hope karma hits him so he can realize that what he did wasn't right. He scarred me and i'll never forget him, which isn't a good thing I'm still not over it. He always comes back and I keep denying him. I hope I can stay strong.

    Even though this song was written by a girl, guys, you can get something out of this too. I walked into me and my girlfriends's apartment after business, and she was having s** with my best friend, and then denied while I was looking at her. "dont come back at all" this song means, breakups are rough, but you don't always have to give in to the fake love that some people give.

    Its a deep song that expresses her anger for this guy that broke her heart in a previous and failed relationship. It hurt her deeply and now that he has come back, asking her for another chance at this, she questions his dignity and common sense at this, she pours her pain out at him. Whoever this prick is, in real life he says he is happy and glad that he made her write this song about him. Seriously!

    That she doesn't want to be with that one person and that all she ever did was follow you around and she learned to live basically live for this one person and she left him but now he wants her back and now she wants to know who he think he is and why he is coming back and that it took her a long time to feel better and remember how to love people and that she doesn't want that person back.

    My meaning of jar of hearts is that her heart was stolen and that she is sad for every other girl that gets their heart taken and that she knows he wants to get her but she stays hiden and at the end she faces him and she tells him that your a monster and your a cold in your heart so you steel others to try and make yourself feel better.

    I find it to be that in the past someone who broke your heart in order for them to have done that you wold have had to have been in love with them & you will see them as they keep on breaking peoples hearts because you know that they will always love you but you have to move and be happy and live a life with out the pain of knowing what they are doing and eventually their jar of hearts will come crashing upon them and bring them down and they wont ever hurt anyone and when they realize that they love you and want you they will come running back to you but you have to let go and move on over them and let them pick up they pieces of his heart because he left you to pick up yours.

    I think this is a good song with great lyrics. It's talking about how painful love can really be. I think there are a lot of people out there who have let themselves fall in love only to end up hurt. Now that he has hurt her, he wants her back and she is strong enough to say no, but you can tell by the melody of the song that she is sad that she has to say no because what they could've had would have been beautiful.

Love but I trust everyone until I have a reason not to and he found his reason even if she is my friend I will admit she has dated alot of guys. Her longest relationship was 2 weeks. I got her to argee that if she ever dumps him see will smush his heart like a bug while I watch and we will skip arm in arm away from him. Because guess what? This player isn't about to collect a jar of hearts :)

    I think that the meaning of this song, is that its about a girl who had a boyfriend, who had cheated on her. When she found out, she also found out that he had been doing this same thing to plenty other girls. He was a heart breaker, and I guess kept "a jar of hearts" of all the girls that he had dated, because he took them all and kept them, and leaving them with only the scar of what had been.

    This song makes me thank of a guy who I loved for many years, went behind my back and cheated on me. It has alot of meaning to me becuz every time it comes on or I hear it I just think of him. I was so mad at him that I sent this song to him in a text message and said that this song is true and it is about you. He was like baby I still love you and I was like well look back at what you did to me and see why I don't love you any more. He took my heart and my love and through it in the trash.

    This song speaks to me because I fell in love with a guy who doesn't yet wants a commitment. I gave all my heart while he was still "shopping around". It was an on and off thing. And everytime I was left heartbroken. So as much as I love him. I know it wasnt worth it to put myself to the emotional torture again and again. I don't blame him because he didn't lie. I knew what I was getting into. But I need to stop. So I finally told him we can't see each other anymore. Because I don't want to eventually ended up hating him.

    Jar of hearts is about a girl who lived a guy so much that she could hardly live without him. When she broke up with him it was because he never really understood what he meant to her. She became angered with him and said that all he did was go around and break every girl's heart without ever really loving them. She goes through all the things that e has done and says how cold his heart is and how much of an awful person he is. She told him never to come back because she knew he wouldn't understand how she felt and he would just do the exact thing again.

    What I think this song means is that a girl had once loved a boy so much but he didn't quite understand what he had with her, she knew that something was missing in the relationship, she was certain it wasn't her because her love for him was real and always had been so she knew that it was him, it was a really hard decision for her but she broke up with him because she didn't want to have a relationship where she was the only one who deeply loved him and her partner would be thinking about the love instead of feeling it. Then she had gotten used to him not be around even though he was her one true love, she understands that he had come searching for her and be with her again because he knows he made a mistake doubting her and the relationship they had together! She felt that he had just pulled love out of her and ripping it apart again because of what happened previously so she turned him down. In the end she thought of him as a cold-hearted who only really ever thought of himself, so she judged him which is where the term came "who do you think you are? "
    This is what I think the story is about behind the song words and inbetween the lines.

    The man in the video once loved christinia. And she loved him. Until she caught him with another woman. She left. Once a cheater, always a cheater. The man goes around, emotionally collecting a jar of hearts. Then, he realizes he still loves christinia. And wants her back. But you can't change the past. Christinia avoids the man, for fear of falling in love. That's what I think is the meaning of jar of hearts.

    To me this is about my relationship with my husband who is suffers from a personality disorder. We have a very challenging and at times painful relationship but the further his disorder pushes him, I feel this is where the end point is of a relationship where one half has to go through so much hurt just to understand what is going on. With little or no personal reward until you must save yourself.

    This song is about a boy who goes around and sweeps girls off of their feet and "steals" their hearts. The boy still loved christina but he didn't show it and just went off with other girls. Christina is the only girl that showed him that you can't do that and didn't fall for any of his lies and didn't say "okay, ill give you another chance". She showed him that you can't do that and she got her heart back. :)

    I could go on about how this song a tale of love a betrayal, I could say who this tells the story of, who I think of be, possibly a conman, who doesn't care about anyone. "and who do you think you are? Running 'round leaving scars. Collecting your jar of hearts, and tearing love apart. " meaning "what gives you the right to do this to people, to gain their love and leave? You've hurt so many people, what number am i? You're tearing love apart, love is meaningless with you, you don't love. "
    "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" meaning, in my point of view; "it's going to catch up to you; all the things you've done, all the heart you've broken; in your jar of hearts. You say you want me back? But you don't love. Don't come for me, you don't have me, don't come back at all, you won't fool anyone else.

    I can see a girl with a tear stained face writing in a note book. She had just found out that the guy she loved with all of her being was cheating on her with not 1 but 3 diffrent girls and had scored with all of them. " i don't know what was wrong with me, " she writes. " you told me I was and ugly b*h and that I was doing everything wrong. I want to say that I never even though about even touching another guy but I guess that was too tempting for somone who is a player. You hurt me more than anyone has before. I realize that I will never love you anymore and I will tell anyone who is ready to date you what you did to me and my heart. You go ahead and play your game while us girls play our hearts and collect your jar of hearts but soon you relized that when you really do want to love somone, there will be none who want to take that chance of hurt again. I thought that I loved you but I realized that I didn't feel love. I will know when I do feel the love I didn't have for you. I will never forgive you.
    P. S.
    I'll be taking my heart out the your jar because it's not yours to keep. It mine.
    Girl who wants her heart "
    She realized that she had done nothing wrong and she went and found somone who she found true love with while her ex boyfriend went through 3 marriges and 3 divorces. She married one man and lived with him happily.

    I think the song is about a man that has been known to cause things to go entirely wrong with relationships and then got joy out of the agony that followed after the couple broke up and tortured this one couple and the woman from the couple is telling him to go away and never come back to tear them apart. This woman thinks he is a horrible man and wants nothing to do with him any more.

    This song is about a guy, who plays with feelings. He feels that love is just a game, and the hearts is his price. However, once he realizes that one of his victims has ran away, he ran after her. Not because of love, not because of yearning, but because he doesn't want to lose. That might also be a misconception of love, however if perri decided to go back to him, she will realize that after a few 'moments', he would go back to his original ways.

    So this song made me cry the first time I had heard it, because it reminded me of my senior year it high school, where I was dating a boy named ryan, and he was the first guy I was ever serious with, the first guy I ever loved. I lost my virginity to him, which was a huge thing for me because I had promised my self that I will not have s** with anyone apart from the love of my life, which he was, or so I thought. One day I found out that he was sleeping with another girl, she was a friend of mine, we were in french class together, and they were sleeping together for a whole two months. I also found out that he had cheated on me with two other girls briefly, whilst we were dating, I was so mad at him, I couldn't control my rage and ended up having to do counseling for a year. It took me a very long time to finally forget about him. A few years passed, and I saw him again at our 5 year high school reunion, all of my feelings that I had tried so hard to get rid of came right back to me, but I still tried to enjoy my reunion and tried not to let my emotions show. But when ryan came up to me and started flirting with me like nothing had ever happened (he was probably drunk but its not really an excuse for that), I got so mad I slapped him across the face really, really hard, and then walked out of my reunion in tears. Its been 4 years since the reunion and I am now married to a wonderful man, the past is finally behind me.

    The song resonates with me. It came out on the radio when I had cheated on my husband. My muse and I kept seeing each other on and off. Each time it became harder and harder. Everytime I would leave and say I was done for the last time he would pop up and call me and want to c me, right when I was trying to work on things with my husband. I would c him, of course and give into his bull crap words and passion only to be left with the lies and guilt every time, alone.

    The song is all about heart aches that she get when the man she loved left her. And when she finally cope up with it the man come back and wanted to win her back again. The thing is the woman finally cope up and don't want the guy anymore because she know that the guy is going to hurt her again and again if she will accept him once more.

    Simple. But very painful. Fell for what I thought was the right man, who couldn't make his mind up or didn't know what love was or who he wanted. So kept coming back to me and like a fool, I let him in my head and heart. He went around collecting hearts but didn't break the others, just myne. Its a great song and makes a great statement, and many people will relate to this. Hugs to you all who do: o) x

    This song reminds me of my soon to be ex husband. Almost 20 years of being happy(i thought) and when I got sick he told me I wasn't worth the money needed for medicines. He told me money would always be his real love and he walked out leaving me penniless and taking care of a my terminal parents. Came back 3 times. And walked out again. Now I'm strong enough emotionally to tell him to go to hell.

    Jar of hearts is about this lady who loved this man. But the man broke up with her, and so she is telling a story about how mean and cold he is because he came back for her but yet again, he was the one who broke up with her, and now she is not giving the man another chance to love her after what happened. Very good meaning. If you read the lyrics, you will understand what I am trying to say if you do not get it.

    It is about a girl who had a boyfriend that she thought loved her but he went and broke her heart and goes around stealing other girls hearts away too. When she finds this she will never forgive him for betraying her like this. The song is trying to say that this man who she thought once loved her goes around stealing girls love to keep and memorize for the rest of his life and remember all the pain he has put these girls through and the girl will do anything in her power to get the love she once gave him. Back to her and leave him with the pain he caused her.

I love this guy and he is amazing everything about him is amazing. His eyes his heart is persoilityy everything if god wasent perfect then he would be but god is my everything and all. This guy is just so wonderfully perfesct he just doesn't see it why? I may never know he doesn't love me like I love him. I don't know whats wrong with me but he is beautiful and funny and curious about life I love him, his dad is a preacher and I know he wants to preach as well I love him with my everything but he doesn't see it, I love him so much but I hang on as much as I can I do cry myself to sleep over him a lot but god will heal my heart soon and send me the guy of my dreams if it gets any closer than this, I am so tired of trying to cover up my feelingd and not tell my friends but its so hard I just want somebody to tlk to.

    I think the meaning of this song is about a girl who was with a guy she loved and she was heart broken by him but over the years with him gone shes learnt to go her own way and be strong along the road of her future and forget her past shes saying that he can't just go around thinking love is a tiny thing that can be broken and fixed when it isn't that simple love should be amazing and cherished by the person you share it with and if you fail to show them that then they will never take you back move on and forget you. I think that is the meaning of this song from my point of view ~ninga unicorn carrot.

    Jar of hearts is basically a girl (christina perri) and her boyfriend has cheated on her and she broke up with him when she sussed it out. It took her a while to get over her boyfriend, but she did it. She felt as though she should try warn off the other girls from him but didn't. She heard that her ex-boyfriend was trying to get back with her. He searched far and wide for her and when he finally reached her she refused him and then his"powers"drained away, keeled over. And died.

    To me I think that jar of hearts mean that somebody has been in your life and meant the world to you. Then one day he just ripped your heart out of your chest and forgot about you. Now he's doing it to every girl he's with. In the song it trying to say that not every boy is perfect so don't get sad when someone breaks your heart it just means that it wasn't meant to be and you could do better. Forget it and do whats best move on.

    This song brought back many memories as it was deeply related to my past. It's technically about a girl who loved this guy with all her heart but he just used her and threw her in a corner as if she were nothing. She grew stronger with each passing day and watches as he plays with other girls' hearts. Until she finally gets revenge and pieces her heart back and forgets him completely.

    To kristin korolowicz.
    I will miss our life together of sunny days.
    Where world wars do not matter.
    Remember diets we did to save money that would take us.
    To see us again? I don't be able to walk never again in my country, because we infected every possible corner with a love that I thought would last at least a century.
    Living not necessarily be on my side,
    Because I always carry the love on my shoulder as a heavy load.
    And because I've still with the love on my sigth as always, is that my soul hurts. But I'm sure nobody will be able to dream our dreams, because.
    Less, broke the barrier of fear, love without language, and because.
    Beat expected long flight.
    That's why this sadness don't fit on my body.
    So I always miss the wonder of small things that never.
    Cease to amaze.
    Our first concert of rumba and the excuse to accompany you to smoke,
    To protect, but more than that, to protect a woman's miracle.
    I have always risen and some say I'm that person makes others happy.
    But the sadness in me hurts so much.
    I get up. I apologize for not being able to give you everything I wanted.
    I have done everything possible, your hug is just my salary.
    If I come back home I don't will able to live in my old street and look through the same balconies, because I will looking forward pick you and clean your mountain of cigarrete butts, and I will miss see you on the skype screen, and cross the seas with tenderness that we had.

    This song is so meaningful to me, because I just dumped my ex boyfriend on february 28 from this year, we had a relation from about 7 months. It all started in july 30 2011, and he was all to me, he was my boyfriend and my bestfriend, he was my life, he was my everything. I love him like I never loved someone else in this world, but things happens. I will always love you jonathan D.

    I would like to think of this as a clash of ideologies. The guy who wasn't ready to settle down and wanted to engage ina philiosiphy of free love, and the girl that loved eternaly and deeply in a monogamous way and this was not the love he expressed for her. Although his philiosiphy alowed him to express feelings with many others, her's did not and it ultimatly hurt her boyond all belif that he couldn't consider her the only one. And even though he still wants to be 'friends' or lovers with her she just sees it as unfair that he would want to do that to her. And the feeling is probably simliar with all the other girls he does this with. And one day he will end up stuck with his own cold soul that cared not about the feelings of others enough to control his own.

If you av just broke up wiv ur boyfriend/girlfriend then listen to this song, cry for a bit, let all of your emotions out instead of bottling them all up. Sometimes having a nice old weep is good for you and this is perfectissimo! Love you christina perri!

    It's about the pain of relationships. It reminds me of my ex-girlfriend who broke up with me for no reason and then went out with an older guy two weeks after our break up. I knew her for four years. Thing is I want to start dating again but I'm afraid of hurting her because we are still friends. This song is helping me move on. It's a beautiful form of catharsis, just like hallelujah.

    A girl who used to be with this guy and loved him with all of her being and he took her for granted and went around 'collecting his jar of hearts' which is him basically making other girls also fall in love with him and in doing so left her. She's moving on a bit but before that she had to learn to live 'half alive' but now he's coming back to get the other half of her and she's tempted but rejects him and in doing do he 'catches a cold from the ice inside his heart' which basically means he has took her for granted and when he wants her, she's just walked away and left him. What goes around comes around.

    Its about a really hard break up, and a girl left with a broken heart. It took her really long to get over it, but the guy came back just after she got over him, and she is telling him to go away cause she is strogner now and shes never gonna believe his lies again cause his love was a lie. And she realised it after a lot of tears. But I got the feeling she still feels something, but knows it not mutual love.

    he bullied other people who used to be his freinds creating big dramas through out the school I know from the 1 and a half year we spent attached to the hip that he loved the drama and attention.

The girl she chose left him too, and he's stalking me now. What should I do? I have my new boyfriend now, but it looks like my feelings for him came back, and I don't want to hurt mu boyfriend.

    It's about your first love- that boy or man you once knew who captured your heart and will always have a piece of it. The sweet boy who wrote you love letters and kissed your eyelids when you slept. The sweet boy who turned into a jerk and knows just what to say to make your heart melt. The once sweet boy who now tears apart your soul and will forever keep a large chunk of your heart locked away inside him forever. The boy you'll never forget. The boy you try to forget every day. The boy who is a serial heart breaker. Your sweet boy- he no longer exists.

    This song is about a boy who dates girls and then breaks up with them and then goes to another girl. Then he met the girl in the song, dated her, and broke up with her just for her love not because he truly loved her. The girl figured out his plan. Then the guy wanted her love again and since she didn't want to be another of his hearts to break again she of course said no. I mean really, if a guy did that. You wouldnt want them back. I had this happen to me also. Hope this helped :)

    This song is about a girl that fall in love but then broke her heart. Boy was happy and went of, to break other girls hearts and in the end he knew that he need her all this time but the girl does not want him back because she does not want to get heartbreaken again. She will never forgive him for what he did. She is not looking for a relesionship right now. In the end she tells him how she feels and feels strong again and like she's got a new life. Before that she might have not forgetten what he did to him.

    She loved him deeply but he callously broke her heart.
    Turns out hers wasn't the only heart he'd ever broken and, to add insult to injury, he never feels any remorse.
    She pieces her life back together after the breakup but he tries to worm his way back into her arms.
    By this time though, she's realised she deserves better and, though it pains her enormously to do so, she finds the strength to send him packing.

    I think the meaning is of someone who used to be in love buit he broke her heart in some way shaope or form of a sort. He has broke many otheres heart and has become bored with his new conquests and has come back to look for her. She knows what will happen if she tyakes him back. She still loves him but wiont get hurt bty his " love" ever again.

And yet he wants her back, but he doesn't know till the end hen she takes away all of his hearts away and he dies because he has no one to love him.

    "jar of hearts", to me, is about a girl who got heart taken away by a player who keeps takin' girls' heart away and she got just as hurt as everyone else. Somehow, to me, this song makes me feel like the bad guy who keeps taking everyones heart. But the reason is because I broke up with the guy I love. Because I thought he didn't like me and I only wanted the best for him. And now he hates my guts. Because he did still love me.

    To me its a song about a girl who was totally in love with a guy who was a player. And he used her time and time again. She finally got the strength to stay away for what ever reason and then, out of the blue, he wants to fool around with her again. This song is about her finally moving on and realizing that she was only "half alive" while she was still pining for him and she doesn't want to go there again. She tells him no when he comes back for more. Good girl for waking up!

    I loved this guy alot, so did he, we spend wonderful time together, but later I found out that he was olready engaged and all he was telling me were lies, but still I tried to make our relationship work, but he completely ignored me, it hurt me so deep dat cried days n days, but he never bothered and left me alone. All I could see was his happy pics wid his grl. It completely broke me apart, and took me soo long to be back to my life, now after 3 years, he called me asking for us to patch up, wen I saw him, dat love was still in me for him but so much hatred dat stopped me from goin towards him,.
    So this song is entirely dedicated to him.

    Having lived with an abuser for almost 8 years, who still wants me back after I divorced him, this song relates to me. There will always be those out there among us who don't mind playing around with someone else's love and life for their own personal gain or just to amuse themselves. Christina's voice effectively expresses the pain of losing what you've invested into your relationship, as well as the strength that comes from within us to overcome and learn how to live life to its fullest again.

    The singer has come to the realization that a man she was once in love with is merely toying with girls feelings. He has obviously been in numerous relationships, without truly feeling love for them. He has a cold soul- not feeling love for the girls whose hearts he's capturing. The singer is aware of this and while she may have given him her heart in the past, she is not naive enough now to let him have it again.

    B, I have loved you, waited for you, defended you, gotten really mad at you, forgiven you, loved you again, and let down by you, lost faith in you, made peace with what happened. I cannot let my life pass by like this anymore. I want to piece myself together, my life, my happiness, my peace. Sorry I have to go. I didn't say bye because I couldn't. Let the past be the past. I am a different person now. I will remember though. All the tears, tough hang-in-there, waste of time and energy, unbearable patience, incredible tolerance, and, growth, the sweetness, though in the far away past, the sweetness. Let me go, find someone else who I can again taste the sweetness with.

    Being hurt by someone you love so much for so many times is so unfair, especially when you continue to forgive and accept the person because of love. Never make someone your priority when to them you're only an option. There's a time to say "ive had enough" and it's over. One has to close the book even one wants to continue the story because not all stories have happy endings. Instead search for another book and see what happens.

    The lyrics to this song are so right-on-it. It is about a sociopath who is out for their own selfish gratification, a control freak who likes a challange and then when they get what they want they enjoy casting the victim aside when their feelings are spewed out all over the floor. If the victim is strong & recognises what the person is about (as the author of the lyrics would suggest), this serves to add fuel to the sociopaths challange as they will enjoy the chase again at the next level. The sociopath will probably have more than one 'iron in the fire' as it were, and for sure at the least will be 'booking ahead' with the next one(s). *Excelent* chorus!

    Hmmm. This song. Relates to me so much. It's lyrics really contains all the things I wanna say to my ex. That I've already moved on to my ex. And that. I don't need him anymore. I'm not gonna let him ruin my life again. And if he ever come back to me. I'm just gonna return to him the painful words he once said that crushed my heart into pieces. Or maybe fine like powder. :)

    She loved him; he didn't know when he was on to a good things, so strayed and played and trashed her heart - something, it seems, he made a habit of, casually getting women to fall in love with him when he had no intention of settling down.
    Finally, after much heartache, she feels strong enough to live without him - which has been made more difficult by the fact she keeps hearing on the grapevine that he is having regrets (genuine? She does not know and does not really care to know, any longer.).
    She has picked herself up, slowly and is learning to love herself again; however, it seems she is still nervous about loving again - hence her stating she has "learned to live half alive".
    At the end of it all, she is indignant: who does he think he is, treating her (and other woman) like objects to be toyed with and then thrown away when he gets bored?
    She could not, would not trust him again - ever.

    I love this song. Christina perri has such a beautiful voice. I wish I could sing like her. First time I heard this song it reminded me of my ex. I can't avoid him. When he broke up I was so sad. And "i learned to live half alive" now he wants me back. He talked with my cousin about me asked if she knew if I wanted to be his girlfriend again! He was my first kiss, so I wish I never kissed him. He promised to love me and so much more, and he broke all of them. When I heard this song first time I felt like "how did she know? " but I guess many girls tried this. Thanks christina perri, thank you for a beautiful song that made me realize everything.

    I heard this song over my winter break, and it made me realize how horrible my boyfriend was. He cheated on my within the first month of us being together, and who knows how many times after that. He cheated on me, and he used to beat his exgirlfriends. Everytime I hear this song it makes me realize that I need to be a little pickier about my choices in boyfriends. I have had a terrible past with relationships. From rape to abuse to cheating. And christina perri has apparently that past too and it helps me realize I'm not the only one.

    I feel that this is a girl who just got out of a horrible relationship. Cheating, lies, ect. She's speaking to the guy that hurt her trying to let him know he is in the wrong if he thinks he'll get her back. And that he's also wrong for doing the same to others. I feel its also about a girl who thought he was the one, but was proved wrong.

    A broken heart! She know she can't go back even though she still longs for him, she is too afraid of the pain. Her lover must have been one of those unattainable/player men who could not love her the same as she. Now he wants her back but she finds herself angry and full of resentment. She expresses her regret and realizes she deserves better than him by asking "who do you think you are". These words sound familiar to me as I too have had all the emotions behind these lyrics that are sometimes too painful and hard to say!

    For me, I related it to a relationship I had with a guy in the past who was dating a bunch of girls at the same time and not taking them seriously. Eventually he and the other girl broke up and told me he was never in a relationship. He continued to lie up to this day yet to tried to keep me looped in yet not commit to a relationship. I feel that jar of hearts for me refers to someone who doesn't care about the feeling of others nor have the ability to feel love him or herself yet uses "love" to manipulate their "loved ones" to be able to take advantage of them.

    Guy comes back once he realizes that the girl can actually live without him. The girl does want him back but she doesn't want to get hurt again so she listens to her brain instead of her heart this time. She feels that she made the right decision not going back but there is a sense of doubt. "jar of hearts" meaning he has broken many hearts before. She loves him, but she loves herself more to not let him hurt her again.

    I think this song is about this girl and she falls in love with this boy. At first he likes her. Everyone else knows hes a player but no one ever told her. One day he breaks up with her and she doesn't know why. She sees him dating other girls and she is so confused. Shes asking herself what went wrong. She finally realizes that he was using her and that he was a player. Out of no where he come and asks her to come back to him. She still has feelings for him but she doesn't want her heart broken so shes stands up to him and tells him.
    This is basically the story of me and my ex.

    Young men disease: to look after many women, to promis everything just to hold them in theire arms. The body is what's important, not the soul inside. When you know that you can play with them without involving your feelings to much, or you put your choice on an older guy who understood already the beauty of real love in a partnership. The song is absolutely eautiful and the voice reach me to the guts

    To me this song is about however much you love someone and want them to want you, in the long term they wont. And however hard it is you have to learn that there good intentions wont last forever, or even for very long. Sometimes you have to listen to your head and ignore you heart because what may feel right in the moment wont feel right when your back to crying your eyes out alone and all the work you did to lift yourself up is wasted. Because hes walked in and back out again. Sometimes its better to just stay well away because it will hurt far less in the long run.

    After a tearful breakup, the guy carries on playing with others' feelings. When the guy finally gets dumped, he tries to renew the lost love between him and the girl. However, in this period of time, she has learnt to live without him (her other half, thus half-alive).
    Although, she still has lingering desires to be with him again, she knows she'll regret it soon since he will never keep his promises. Instead, she claims to have "grown too strong" living without him and will not succumb to his beckoning.
    This song is ultimately about heartbreak and the emergence of new found confidence.
    Aside: damn I love this song. May all players have bad karma, bcoz what goes around comes around.

    I like this song. When I get my blackberry curve 8520 on wednesday I am gonna make it my ringtone. But I might need help from amy because I haven't had a blackberry before and she knows all about them because she has got a curve 8520 same as I will. I suppose my mum could help me because she had a stom but she dropped it down the toilet so it stopped working and all the camera could see was brown. She said I could try that one out before getting a curve be I said I didn't want it. So she gav e it to my grandad and he didn't know how to use it because he is new to all this touch screen stuff. So he went back to his old phone. Which is and lg.

    It's about a girl who falls in love. She falls deeply in love, and the guy she's in love with feels the same, at first. But then he leaves her, and her heart is shattered and left in pieces all over the floor. Over the years the way she feels about him changes. Then one day out of the blue. He comes back. He comes back to her, but she turns away, knowing that if she had to let him back into her heart she'd get hurt badly. It would be exactly the same as the last time. He would love her, until he sees someone smarter, or prettier, or sexier.
    Then he would just leave her. And so she says that she can't go back to him because she's realised she's better of without him. "jar of hearts" is a song about life, love, and loss.

    It is just a jar that full of hearts which were collected from a man who doesn't know the really meaning of true love. Jars that full of blood from a woman's heart. And once the jar broke, all happy memories also broke up and like a glass jar it can never be recycle like it was a new one. You'll just realize all your fault until you get cut and be wounded by the "carma" yourself. And you'll realize that the trust you gain easily is now like a broken jar. Try to use it again, you'll be wounded. Try to recycle it, you'll never get rid of the marks and signs that it has been broken once. Regret in the end but a man like you doesn't deserve a woman like me.

    Tearsturntojoy describes it so well. I am a grown man who went looking for that jar of hearts and wished I never had. Lost everything but more importantly lost the one that meant so much to me. When will ever learn, like the girl I will be scared all my life too. I caused the scar and to the outside world I felt no pain but on the inside my soul is one big scar, like a piece of roadkill my inside is destroyed, right now not sure whats being destroyed by someone else and knowing you did that too them or knowing youve destroyed yourself.

The girl want to forgot about him so she move to another country starting new life but till this day she never been with someone because she scared to get another broken heart.

    For me, who's an otaku and an avid fanfiction reader, this songs tells about her dating a heartbreaker. Eventhough she knows he's a playboy, she still loves him with all her heart. But then the guy actually fell for her, but was confused with the feeling of love, since he's never seriously loved anybody. Trying to avoid being 'in love', which he thinks as weak, he breaks up with the girl. The girl knew that the guy loves her, but when the guy denied his feelings, she becomes depressed and slowly feels that the guy is pathetic. A new victim after another, he still thinks of his ex, his first love, and begins regretting he broke up with her, thinking that he was so stupid. The guy tries to get her back. But the girl was too fed up, the guy's dates with the newer girls was the same as the ones when they dated. She thought she was special since they went to his 'special' places and all, apparently she was wrong and hated him.

    This song is about a man who came into my life and seduced me during a bad time in my marriage. He broke apart my marriage, my soul, my life. I learned later that he has done this many times before and there are many women just like me left in his path of destruction. He always tried to get me back but I wouldn't be so desperate again. We all deserved better.

    I thinks this song means everything but anything that people exsperiance they fight for love but at the end its not worth it knowing there is probaly broken hearts just like you from that one person no one feels the same but does understand how much it kills you in side and tears you heart apart and not thinking theres what to glue back and so you fight with words and commandes to stay away and never coming back again to get the chance to hurt you any more.

    It's the art of letting go and finally moving on of the girl, who always taking for granted. It's really hard to know where and when you will start moving on but in the end you will just end up smiling without knowing that you have finally let go of the past, but the cruel thing is, when you already accept the fact you've been hurt for the rest of your life because the love you have for him, he will standing in your face making you feel like you will be just like before. He thought that he can still do anything to you. But if you really let yourself find the peace in your mind, you will not be affected again. You will not be hurt anymore.

    This reminds me of an issue I have right now! This guy says he likes me. Whatever, and we almost got into a relationship a few months ago, but I assumed he wasn't interested since he was talking to other girls. However I still had some feelings for him up until about a month or so ago. But yesterday he called me and said I'm beautiful and said he really likes me. Well, today I saw him flirting up girls every chance he gets. He's" not getting my heart back:)
    I think perri is trying to say he stole her heart once, she got it back, now he wants to go through all that s*t a second time and she has the willpower to stay strong and not be dependent on him again. She's so inspirational. :)

    I was just recently seeing someone and it all ended because he was getting too close and was scared I would cheat on him because his last long term girl did. I like the guy a lot but I'm not going to be the girl who keeps coming around when he misses me, in the hopes he'll decide I am worthy of his trust. I'm stronger than that and I have no time for bull s*t. I hope he finds a great woman who can tear down his wall, but for now he's just going to go around breaking the hearts of other fantastic girls that don't deserve it. This song reminds me to stay strong and move on :) love it!

    Jar of hearts to me could be about a man or woman. The person is singing about this person that they fell so in love with. Once the other had stolen their heart they may have done something tragic that hurt for so long. Maybe they were just cold hearted but they continue to play their games. Right when the person singing finally has gotten over them, they decide to pop back into their life for one more go, stirring up old emotions with an already scarred heart. I have had this happen before and yes it makes you believe that love does not exist. The song is touching and I am happy that christina has come up with such beautiful lyrics that paints a picture of what everyone has probably gone through once or twice.

    I think the meaning of this song is about a girl and everything was perfect between but he couldn't help but see others on the sly he told her he loved her and made her believe it and then just stopped it all, she greived for what they'd lost but he carried on doing it to more girls and she realised she was nothing special. She'd love to be back in his arms again but she knows that it would kill her if he did it again. =/

    It's about learning that no matter how much you love someone, it doesn't make them love you back, if they did they wouldn't be collecting a jar of hearts, and being strong enough when they start to miss you(not love you) not to take them back, even if it is the one thing in the whole world you really want, he will never love you like you love him, he proved that the first time around :)

    I think it means that she's scared of seeing him again, because she knows she'll just fall for him again, and have her heart broken again. Her head tells her not to, but her heart tells her otherwise. She knows she'll just regret it all in the end again, she'll just cripple under herself from sadness, that she'll just want to take it all back. She's telling him to back off before she does something terrible to both of them.

    The lyrics to this song are sooo beautiful. Heard it for the first time tonight on dancing on ice and just had to google the lyrics. No one likes to have their heart broken but it makes you stronger and unfortunately with me hardens your heart just a little where it takes longer for anyone to capture your heart. If the person who had broken my heart had come to me 2 months ago I would have taken him back, even knowing what he is like and would have let him break my heart again. Now, after thinking about him and the way he is and has been with other women there is no way that I would give my precious heart and love to him again. I'm worth more than that x

    This song is about me and my girlfriend of 11 yrs. She's the only gf I've ever had, I think I've torn her heart out every way I could. We always managed to get back together. We are currently separated as of 3 weeks ago due to the fact I wasn't emotionally there for her. Shes hurt me too and I shut down never to turn back on. Until now, I die inside everyday I can't have her I'm trying to get her back for the last time but she won't have me.

    It was a girl who fell in love with a handsom amazing boy, and she loved him with all her heart. But after some time found him cheating with many girls and ran away from him, the boy didn't really care but couldn't get her off his mind and finally new that he really did love her. He went back to her and told her how he felt but she knew never to trust him and she told this boy to get out of her life, and as he left through the gates of her house never to see him again she said "who do you think you are? "

    I think this song means that someone has fallen in true love with a guy but he is just going around playing all the girls when he doesn't realise how painful it can be for the girls. I think this song means that you can't just fall in love once you fallen into it again and again just like the word love is a trap. You need to stay strong and not crumbly and fall down.

    Sometimes it doesn't even take the actual person to be there for them to be coming back for you. Sometimes the memory of a person just sticks with you so much that it feels like you are being chased by them even though you know you will never see them again. It takes a long time to truly break free from the influence someone has had over your life and I don't think you ever truly get your heart back from their jar.

    Cliche.
    This is just another "i am woman, hear me roar" song, that all the other women warriors sing about, just in a different "look at me i've been oh so hurt" pity party of a song. "artists" like this just add to the notion that us women are melo dramatic and over emotional, and all we do is whine about all our problems. Yeah, a guy broke your heart and hurt you, it's happened to every male and female I've ever encountered. If you were all that strong you wouldn't be dwelling on it, writing this song to put embarassment and shame on this guy. Get over it.

    It's about me. From all the girls hearts I've collected over the years, crushing and throwing them on the ground. Becoming numb to the word " love", ignoring my concious. Using what I needed, and throwing the rest away. After my divorce I didn't care anymore, I was hurt deeply, and felt that there was no such thing as love, no one deserves to be happy, not to me. I hurt so much, and is why I make others hurt as I do. No. Not physical abuse, but the abuse of love is what I am guilty of.

    For me this song tells about a girl who had fall for a guy that treated him, but after all she learned how to fight her own fear,(that the guy could hurt her again) and also that she now knows how to live with a broken heart and that life goes on even if you fell like nothing gonna cshange, no one will came to rescue you, but then you realize that no matter what, earth wont stop, and that you are the one that have to push your self up and grow strong so zou can't fall again.

    This is about a girl loving a boy so deeply and how he doesn't realize how much she truely loves him. How she would do anything to make him happy. This is about how that girl had to let him go. "if you truely love something let it go, if it loved you in return, it will come back" but he didn't come back. And that girl had to hope and pray with every fiber in her body that it was the right choice. She had to fight the urge to run straight back to him, even if just for one more night. But she had to see him every where she went. Everywhere. And her heart broke every time. That is the story behind th song. Wait. That's my story. That's my life. That's my heart shattering every time I think of him knowing I cannot have him ever again.

    He came out of the blues, swept me off my feet, we danced under the stars in the bright moonlight to my favorite song. He looked me right in the eye and promised never to break my heart. He did the opposite of what he promised. A new girl came into the picture and without reason he dropped my heart from the top of the world and left me to pick up the pieces of my broken heart. And I'm still trying to put it back together again.

    This song means so much to me. It is about a guy who hurts his girl very bad. He leaves her for a few weeks and then comes back, wanting her again. However much she wants him, she doesn't want to get hurt again, so she refuses. This song brings back so many memories - good and bad - and I hope that this song comforts you as much as it does me letting me know that I am not the only one who suffers. Thanks.

    To me, the song has a different meaning. That's the beauty of music- it means different things to different people. I am a recovering anorexic and had been doing well in recovery and suddenly, I can feel the eating disorder waiting and wanting me again, promising to make me happy, but it's fake promises. It's just wanting to add me to its jar of hearts of victims. I won't give in.

    Wonderful song. One way love. You can have a broken heart but if you lose your soul to someone their is no way back. My friend got dumped and we found him dead 3 weeks later so sad, and do you know what I went round to surport her? I know I know and she has just broke my heart as well. How did that happen? What makes these people tick.

    This song tries to tell the listeners that love isn't a thing that can be traded. She explains that love affects not just your physical body but your soul as well and tell that boy's soul is as cold as ice. This girl was hurted so much that not just her heart of thrown away and broke but also her soul is like not even alive that even if he was coming back and giving her apologies she would still be dead and his love will never be able to reach her. This song is not just for entertainment but it is to teach people how much love can means to one person that which can be either gender and to be honest it really affected me, I was truely touched by this song, because I was one of the victim that have been attacked that heart collectors. I really hope people would understand the true meaning behind it.

    Its about a girl who fell in love with a guy, whom she later found out was nothing but a liar and a cheater, who also did it to many other women. He seems to have regret for whatever he did to her and then wants her back. But by then she has already moved on. She knows what he is all about and doesn't want to risk getting hurt again by him.

    My meaning of this song is that it is a serial heart/trust breaker. A person has been so hurt in their past that both consciously and unconsciously all they want is to break others, to make them feel how they do. Its a punishment of sorts even. To make you believe in them then cut you down before you can hurt them as they are hurt or feeling hurt. For me, its a song of strength of awakening, to open your eyes and see and saying no more. To say I love you but I know you will hurt me and walking on without them. I wish I had the same strength.

    When I first heard this, I loved that line - you're gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul - but then I thought about it too much. I mean, as a metaphor it makes no sense, since ice wouldn't give you a cold. More importantly, it's used as a curse - a dark portent aimed at the person who hurt her. Is 'you're gonna catch a cold' seriously the worst she can think of doing to him? It's pretty tame, as curses go.
    I still love the song, I just think they've arranged it to showcase that line, and it's the weakest line in the whole song.

    Wow! Did we date the same guy!? It really hit home for me I could totally relate as I had fell in love with someone who was a fake a fraud, cold and callous. Ya', so true. "you're gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul". Our relationship was a lie, just make believe. He did this to many woman- "collecting his jar of hearts". It was the worst pain I had ever felt, so betrayed. "i learned to live half alive". After the break up. Now, he keeps trying to come back and all I can think of is this song! I might just send it to him. Thank you for writing it christina perri. You rock girl! J~.

    After giving some one three chances, there wont be time for a 4th. Three strikes and you are out! How many times can a person keep breaking your heart, eventually it will turn cold and give you the strength to let them listen to this song. It says it all, and exempts you from having to say it. People are going to catch a cold with the ice in there in there souls evenually.

    I have had to learn to live half alive. Makes you stronger but in a sad way. You know in your heart you still love them but you can't go back to someone who broke your heart and walked away and broke every promise. Not going to happen. He has my heart in a jar I need it back so I can give it to someone who wont just lock it away and then walk away.

    Basically, the woman is saying that she doesn't wanna get back together with the other guy, because he cheated on her and now he wants her back. She is saying that she won't come back because she's got too many scars from the love that they had. She is also saying that he has a cold soul - bad person ;) and that he shouldn't bother try to come back for her. The guy is kinda like a person who goes around with other girls breaking their hearts as well (who do you think you are,| going 'round leaving scars|collecting your jar of hearts).
    So basics, a guy cheated on her and broke her heart and continued to cheat on her and this time when he asked to get back together, she finally said no because she has finally moved on and she doesn't want him in her life at all anymore.
    At least that's what I got from the song ;) ♥.

    When my boyfriend dumped me, and I found out he was cheating on me thi song came out. It was the only thing I could understand the meaning of at the time. It means to me that my ex boyfriend is gonna get his heart broken one time, and he's gonna tear everyone and everything apart. I'll be sitting at my house watching this whole thing, and he'll be crying like I did.

    I was with my boyfriend off and on for a about a year. We broke up 3 times because I would not put up with his selfishness and verbal abuse. But, of course, there were many good things about him, too. The last time he came back to me and told me he loved me. I took him back only to find out he was seeing another woman who he spent the entire thanksgiving weekend with, but told me he and his brothers were visiting his sister who has cancer. As I found out, he was looking for other women online before we ever broke up. I regret the first time we kissed, made love, and every time I took him back. But, now I'm too strong to ever fall back in his arms, so I told him don't come back for me. Don't ever call me again. This song has such strong meaning that I gave him the song lyrics when I told him goodbye. But, the music behind the lyrics is so powerful along with the words. I feel the force of her feelings as she sings that song. I feel like I lived it.

    ' cause you broke all your and now you're back you don't get to get me back, and who do you think you are running 'round leaving scars collecting your jar of hearts and tearing love apart, you're gunna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul, so don't come back to me, don't come back at all, ' to me this reminds me of my mother who is always breaking promises she makes, and she comes back and rips my heart out time after time, she comes back and gets all to love her, and she trys to split up my big brother and his fiancee, she litrally has ice inside her soul, but I finallt told her never to come back, so yeh this song has a strong meaning to me.

    In my opinion, the meanig for the song jar of hearts by christina perry is for guys or who every you are girls included to stop going around and breaking others hearts. Then, going back for them a second time to destroy their soul. Its meaning is to not play with peoples hearts. Its not a toy that you can just give away when your done because what if its destroyed? What if it had perished in your strangling hands? Just what if who wants it after you have tortured it to that degree.

    "jar of hearts" isn't a love song, it's the opposite a regret and distrust song. It portrays a relationship in which a girl fell for a guy, but he broke her heart. With this happening she saw that he has done this many times, and decided no matter how much this so called "player" said I'm sorry and regreted what he did she will never feel the same or trust him ever again. He will never be able to repair the damage done. This independant girl goes on to say "who do you think you are? " telling him he can't push people down and hurt people like that all the time, increasing her self confidence.

    I loved my husband with all my heart. He walked out onme and our 3 week old baby. I've learned to live. Half alive. After so much trying on my side with a cold hearted man. I walked away. Its been 5 months now. I walked away. I took so long to even remotely feel alright. Now? . Hes been in touch. Don't come back for me. People can't always see what they have. They are blinded by other things and that the grass is greener. It isn't. Then they wake up. But the persons gone.

    I love this song, reminds me of my ex when I broke up with him because he kept cheating on me. I finally realized I didn't need him. And of course he tried to come back to me. I guess. Its about those guys who take things for "granted". And once they realize they did wrong. They want to fix it. But its too late. So this is to us girls who say enough is enough.!

    Its about someone who wants you, doesn't want you, then once your off the table he wants you again. It's a vicious relationship that goes around and around in circles until one day they break your heart that once too many times so you give up hope and belief that anything they ever say or promise again will be true.
    The sad part is that you know you will always love them and never someone as deep, you just can't let yourself ever go there again.

    Unfortunately it is not always a man who is collecting " jar of hearts" and it is true it is hard to learn to live half alive but as it says in the song I have learn to be too strong. .
    That is why to me it's a good song! If one does not learn from the life's push down to the floor then one can not get up and start running round, love is the strongest feeling the all universe and it always win!

    I see it as a girl who loved a guy a lot but the guy didn't value her he didn't appreciate what he had and cheated on her he left her then when he realised that he wants her again for something but she moves on and doesn't want him back she learned how to be strong without him and realized what kind of person he was. I love this song.

    "jar of hearts" is about a girl who fell in love with a boy that never truly felt the same about her. While he meant the world to her all she was to him was another notch in his belt. Once she finally realized the true extent of his "love" for her she did what she should have done from the beginning, run. I'm guessing sometime afterward once she's found a way to pull whats left of herself together he reenters her life trying to win her back, and with her new found strength she denies him and shows him the door, regaining all that he took from her in the process.

    I think this song is about a girl who was deeply in love with a man who didn't treat her right. The man then leaves and comes back expecting the girl is still in love with him. She repeatedly takes him back until one day she realises that she doesn't need him because he is badly treating her repeatedly. So she leaves him, he then continues to try to get in touch with her and tries to get back with her but she refuses him.

    It's about a girl who was very in love with a guy who didn't treat her right. The guy leaves then comes back then leaves then comes back again thinking that the girl is desperately in love with him. The girl repeatedly accepts the guy even though he keeps on hurting her, not just emotionally but also physically. Then one day she woke up realizing the fact that she doesn't need a guy who keeps on hurting her repeatedly. She left the guy and found a new one. Now, her ex bf is keep on sending her private messages through fb and ym. I should know. I've experienced it: p

    This reminds me of my past situation. The guy had played her dirty and decided on leaving her in which it left her completely heart broken. He did his bouncing around with girls and decided he wasn't happy with the rest so he goes back looking around for that girl wanting her back, and she wants nothing to do with him.! Perfect song for anybody who has been left and weeks later the other person wants to get back to together!.

    For me, the song jar of hearts is a story of a girl who decided to move on and forget the boy instead of moping and crying. She found out that the boy was a womanizer, breaking many girl's hearts and as the song says, "collecting your jar of hearts". The girl was hurt, yes but then, she realized that she could do better. She wanted to show to the boy that it was his loss, not hers. Very inspiring for the heartbroken. .

    This song to me was about how they use to date. He then cheated on her or lied to her and she found out. She tried to forget it and he moved on to another girl. He broke up with his present girlfriend and realized he should be with her. He ask for one more chance, only she doesn't want to be with him anymore. She doesn't want to be heartbroken. Shes telling him that shes not her old self and she will never be with him and its a little late to come back. This is kind of the story of me and my ex and I cry when I hear this song.

    Basically, I think she talking about this person who cheated or did something to her that she didn't like, the person let her fall in love with them and the person just used her just like the others, the person meant so much to her that it hated eventually the person is going to realize what they lost and want it back but it might be a little to late to come back to them so they are going to have to move on but it took the hurt person to get over them but it's hard and stuff like that.

    She once was deeply in love with the boy who ended up going away because he thought she wasn't good enough. She learned to live but she was scarred. Then he came back but she refused to see him. She heard him asking around where she was but he could not find her, for she had become strong and would never fall back into his lies and betrayals. She wishes she had never met him so that she would never have been scarred. She wonders who the boy thinks he is.

    It's about karma. The girl clearly loved the boy and he cheated on her by collecting other women's hearts. Once she had finally grown strong and started to live again, he decided he wanted her one more time. But she is too scarred and can see he has a heart of ice to be able to treat her in this way so she no longer wants to fall back into his arms.

    The song is about a boy who uses a girl by going out with her andgiving her the false image that he loves her, the girl actually falls in love with him but he breaks her heart. Some time later the boy realises that he actually loves the girl and wants to get back with her, so the song is from the girls point of view, with telling theherboy that she no longer loves him since he used her.

    It's about a broken girl who gave her heart for the man she loved and would do anything for. But he did not understand the passion she had for him. She lost all recogonition she had of herself while with him. He always thought that he could come to her and she would forget herself, her well being, and run to him. She made the most difficult decission leaving him and staying strong and standing her ground. She will prosper in the end and he will miss the great thing he had and always compare all others to her.

    I guess what I'm about to say is the same as the reviews above. Well, life just sometimes like that. We can't neither expect someone to love us the way we should be love nor be faithful to us. "happily ever after" is difficult to find in this cruel world we live in. The lesson here is to really wait for that someone who's love means being faithful and loyal for the love we gave to him/her.

    To me this song is about girl who gives her love, her heart, and her soul to this guy. For some reason the guy doesn't feel the same. But he does love her but not the same way she does for him. So she breaks up with him. She feels so hurt and depressed and wants to let everything out. The thing is that the guy isn't worth fighting for. You gave your best. And if that's not enough for the guy then forget about him that's his loss. He won't find another woman that loves him and that would take a bullet for him as you would. So don't be sad and depressed because there are many fish in the sea. Think it this way its just one heart break to a happily ever after. :)

    This song is about a boy who doesn't know what he is missing.
    He had everything but threw it away cause he can't be with only one girl, even if that one girl loves him more than anyone else could ever love him,.
    But she loves herself too, and everytime she sees him it's hard not to runn into his arms, but she rembers what he put her through, and she can't go back. She's a girl who finds it odd that the person who brought her so much joy at one time can also bring her more pain than anyone else. She wonders how could a boy be so heartless, how can he live with himself? Does he even know she really loved him? Does he know how much heart break he caused? Not only to her but to many other poor girls like her that also fell into his trap, he's collecting his jar of hearts. But she won't let you have hers back.

    In my opinion, to me this song was purposed to a heartfelt crowd in which, a girl had dated a guy. Thus the guy used her for his own reasons, (s**, reputation, mind games ect.) but in the end, the result of this caused her to fall in love with him, so to speak, but understand, afterwards, what his intentions were. Seeing as his reputation or so, based upon the music video, he had a sick reputation for breaking peoples hearts. I think that what christina is trying to say or reflect upon the people is to not, let your walls down, and not to leave the vulnerable for manipulation. People don't change, the peoples view upon others changes. Sincerely,.

    To me it feels like a woman who was madly in love with a man, who went around with other women, cheating on each of them. He collects 'jars of hearts' and doesn't tell each lady about the other women. The man wants this one woman back but she tries to escape his life. She runs from his vision, but he talks her into loving him again. She grows stronger and smarter and soon forgets the insane man who cheats on women.

    Perri penned the song about a serial heartbreaker she once dated. The singer stated in her blog the story behind the tune: "i wrote the song after i went home to philadelphia for the holiday last december. I sat in my childhood bedroom and hid from the boy (with the jar of hearts) who wanted to see me. My heart wanted to see him, my head knew better. " the song's music video was directed by jay martin and was shot on a soundstage designed as a new york city street.

    When you finally realize you meant nothing to them, an you realize your strong enough to let go its the best feeling in the world. He walked all over her and used her when he had no one else. Hes just a player and does the same thing to every girl. Hes insensitive and insecure but he always ends up coming running back to her because he has no one else. But shes done with him, hes not taking her heart this time.

    It is about a girl who loved who loved a man so much. But the man, did not feel the same way. They were dating, and he was cheating. He was cheating on this girl with many women, she figured out what was going on and told the many other women. They all left him and he was in rage. So he ran back to the original woman. She stood up for her and the other women, and told the man that he couldn't have any of them. Ever again!

    The whole song has a lot of in depth meaning. Don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore. I think it means. "dont you know im not your follower or dont you know im not following you anymore" or it could mean. And this is real in depth. That when he broke her heart (he killed her) she became this ghost that he thought would haunt him. (in his mind would always be there in case he wanted to get back with her) because he knew she would keep coming back. But now shes saying I'm not chasing ou anymore by gabriel thomas.

    This song makes me feel very sad and brings tear to my eyes. :( this one, maybe, could be dedicated to me by my ex-bf if only he learns about this song. Its not about cheating or whatsoever. Its about me, took forgranted the way he loved me. And now that our relationship is getting colder, I've realized how precious and genuine his love for me is. I wish I could bring him back. :(

    This is song is about a girl having a real wake up call after her man had dumped her, making her realized of who the man is: a heart breaker. And after that he kinda want to make up to her and wants her back but she decided that she doesn't want him anymore, the fact that he had stolen and broken the precious treasure she ever had: her heart. And this song is truly awesome and addictive!

    People should understand for me this song is metaphorical. Depression, was the lover and it broke me. Now I am stronger and will not take another step towards it or allow life to bring me down. I became cold, unfeeling, and of course depressed. Life leaves scars and hurtful memories. I remind myself with this song that I to be grateful for all I have, and that I have a love that helped me. I remind myself not to fall back into the arms of the coldest, most ruthless lover their is depression! I am wonderful now and I wish that everyone can fight off this creature which attacks your heart and destroys the love within us.

    My mother has continuously used me. And I continuously put my trust and faith in her because I thought she was a good mother. Then, she stretched me too far. And now, I don't love her anymore. I refuse to put my trust in her. Disappointing love. She thinks that we're a family - I don't see anything. This song is dedicated to her - used over and over again. It's over. Never again.

    The meaning of jar of hearts is about a girl who loved his boyfriend more than everything. But then the girl had to make decision whether to stay with the boy or to spilt up. When they spilt up the boy found a girl but he didn't like the girl as he was still in love with his ex girlfriend. And the girl was still in love with the boy. But years later the love for the boy faded.

    The meaning of this song is a simple one. Which is some man broke her heart more then likely by cheating on her, and alo more then likely. She probably had gotten back with him and he did it again. This kept happening untill she lernt her lesson. Then he came back to try and winher back but she won't let him back in. Simple really. It's about love gained, love lost, heart broen, heart taken, only to be put in a "jar of heart's" with all his other conquest.

    This song is about a girl who deaply loved a man. She broke up with him because she thought he was in love with another woman. She only wrote this song because he wanted her back but she didn't want him. She didn't know what to do so she wrote down what she was thinking and made this amazing song about it. I think that deep down she has loved him from the start but she didn't know what to do. Christina perri was hurting he wanted her back so bad but she was scared what he would do to her. That's all I have to say about it writen by

    It's about a guy in who she was in love, and she still is, but she knows that he is no good because he's a player. Whenever she saw him, she felt tingling. She went away, but he is still on her mind. Whenever she'll go, he will be deeply in her heart. He is her greatest love. But in the end. He is not the guy who will give himself to any girl, not her, not anyone. So that's why he is collecting a 'jar of hearts'.

    Its a song that makes me sad but I love it. I am a guy and think of it the opposite way when I hear it I'm in her shoes and my x-wife is the one I'm singing about. Basically I hear the song and hear someone did their lover wrong and left them for someone else. When they got that someone else realized it wasnt what they wanted and tried to get back with the person they left and hurt so badly. But the person has learned to survive without them and has moved on.

    Though it is a song to be strong, to give value to a person itself, not letting others to play with its heart, I would only sing it to a really bad person. Despite of this it is a great song, and it is helping to me a lot in this moment, specially becuase I think it is not a song of hating, but a song of self respect and love :)

    This song is about a girl who gave her heart to a boy who was more of a playerish guy. He obviously threw her heart in the trash {metaphorically speaking} and she moved on. She grew stronger and now her wants her back. She doesn't want to get back with him and thinks "wow! Really he goes out with all those girls and he actually thinks he can get back with me. " she ends up telling him off and asking who do you think you are?

    I think she realized all this time this guy was using her, maybe loved her at one point but that's doubtful. She was always just his shadow and fell in love with him, but it was the fake him and maybe she caught him cheating. There were some good times, but the bad times were more and cloud up the good times. She's a smart one and learned her lesson.

    I think the meanin of this song is when you really love someone and you think your gonna spend the rest of your life with them and you think they love you the same way and you find out that you thought wrong. Because the guy is dating another girl and tellin her the same thing he's tellin you so then you feel heart broken and scared. I really love this song it's reminds me of the son of A. I use to date but I am alot stronger and now I have a boy that really loves me.

    I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions. Most people aren't aware of the almost unbelievable deals that they can get from online auction sites.
    The site that has the best deals is saveonbuycøm
    And I checked with the better business bureau and was told that it is all legit. How they can sell gift cards, laptops, cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don't know. I do know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 loews gift cards for $48. Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?

    I can't really say what this song means. But I can feel the vibes and feelings of the writer. It's sad. I heard this on the radio, I didn't know the name of the song yet, just listened to the lyrics. This song is telling me that someone either broke the writer's heart, or cheated on her. She felt sad, didn't want to see that man anymore. That is what I can feel from this song.

    It's about a woman that believed her male companion was perfect and how blind she was because she let love cloud her vision. It's about a romantic ideal that doesn't exist. A story of betrayal that could apply to either partner in a relationship. Love is an illusion and we allow ourselves to be mislead because we put our faith in something and someone. A belief that it will protect and keep us together forever a naive hope. Human frailty.

    This song is exactly how I feel about he who broke my heart and lied to me as he moved on to marry someone else out of the country. Then back home because she's not here yet have the nerves to call me out to go to our usual spots and hang out like we once had. I was once blind and weak but when he left I cried my heart out and at the same time finally saw the truth and I am so much stronger and he does not deserve my love. I love this song because it is so powerful if you get the words.

    Jar of hearts is about a guy who makes his girlfriend feel like she's the most important person in the world and she's the only girl for him. But its just lies, because he's a cheater and a player. He just promises lies and leaves when he's had enough or seen someone else. The songs about getting over this guy and becoming stronger and carrying on living after you've been cheated on.

    I believe that this song is about a boy who plays with a girls heart. She has been hurt too many times by him, so she tells him she's done, but its hard for her and he took a little part of her with him. He keeps on coming back acting like he still wants her and she starts hoping he's changed but acts the same way, so she has finally gotten stronger to tell him no. She finally knows that he will never change and she needs to let it go.

    The tune starts in a mellow of a lonely beat, the beat of sadness due to her boyfriend's words and actions. Then, maybe unexpectedly she saw her boyfriend with another girl. There she struggles to forget him and on the day he finally started to move on and get her life, the boy came back but the girl refused and move on.

    A woman, who has been longing for love for so long, has been played, meaning her emotions have been stretched from one to another constantly with a man, he has had the reputation for so long but she chose to ignore it and have a relationship. She realises what mistakes she has made, and the song is speaking to the man who played withher emotions. She has been hurt before and it too her so long to pull herself back up on her feet again, strong enough to be able to hold her head held high, she opened up to another lad and the same thing happened again, 'who do you think you are' speaks as if to say to the man 'who do you think you are, you cannot keep doing what you are doing' the song explains how badly hurt all female roles get from connecting with the male role, and he completely destroys the object of love. He is cold hearted and shallow and the woman singing, in this case, christina perri, is saying how she doesn't care for him any more, he can sod off because she's so fantastic and if there's one thing she's leart from this experience, it's that she should wait for the right person, she knows it's not him so he shouldnt come running back.

    I loved my bf, not knowing that he had a wife. When he left to go home, I found out about her. He came back to me saying he loved me but that he couldn't leave her. I agreed, I love him. So now he left again, leaving me again. But he'll come back, eventough I don't want him to. He'll keep coming back, and i'll always be 'the other woman'.
    This time it's a no. I won't be his again.

    In the scheme of love, love lost and love gained there is an underlying theme of loss. The collector of the jar of hearts operates preemptively, that is striking before struck.
    Like the collective songwriters of this poignant, triumphant song, many people -- as this is not the domain of male-to-female -- follow the path of loving and leaving. It is a man/boy who doesn't know himself well enough to know what he is really doing to his partner and the depth of the pain he causes. Hopefully, you have not experienced the jar of hearts relationship but if you have been playing the field for more than a few years, chances are you have.
    Take heart, listen to the power of the lyrics and don't fall prey again. Live and learn. Embrace your own power.

    Abput a girl who has been broken in love. She feel for a man, who broke her, and messed her around. And the man doesn't really care about the girl and just goes around breaking people's hearts. And now he wants the singer back, but the girl is saying no, because he broke her, and it took so long for her to recover, she isn't going to risk that all again, for someone who she n o longer trusts.

    This is exactly what is going on with me right now. I just can't let him go yet. Even though he choses over and over to hurt me and lie to me and replace me, but every single time he comes back to me. Expecting everything to be okay if he says "im sorry, i love you. " if he loved me he wouldnt do this. It can't be okay every single time.

    I think the top meaning on the left says it all, but ido think the part when she says "and tearing love apart" it might mean she is now with someone new who she loves and he is trying to come back in her life and tear them apart. I could be just thinking that as I am in that siduation. We all seam to bring our own meaning of how we relate to the song with our own lives!

    When me and my mate first heard this song it brought a tear to our eye, for some reson we do not know. We think it is about a man who builds a relationship and then lets the person down just for the sake of it and being horribale! It is a crule thing and know-one should go throgh it! It was a heartbreaking song but we still love it and sing it every day! We love it!

    As a songwriter I got the idea for this song years ago but for some reason I put it aside waiting for the right moment and feelings to write it. Well I don't have to do that anymore this girl has nailed it spot on. Maybe one or two words I would have chosen different but this is what I wanted to say. She has been hurt and is tired of all times of trying to work it out with someone who thinks they can just keep coming back and break hearts and collect them as if he has no feelings of doing it. She learned to live half alive because that's all he would let her and that's what she had to adjust to from all the pain he put her through. She wishes she didn't remember the first time they kissed because that is what usually haunts you when you break up with someone you love. Not too many songs give me goose bumps but this one leaves me with tears and goose bumps. I would love to meet this girl one day and write a song with her. She writes like me. I am very picky on the music I listen to today because there is not much out there that makes any sense. God bless xo.

    I love this song. It reminds me of jr(my bf) I love him all this time. I never realized that all I've done for him wasn't enough for him to stay. He just left me, and says he would come back because he love me. I knew this news through his sister (april) the day before he left me. He never contacted me for almost two months he comes back and wants me and now his back as if nothing happens. He always say he loves me, but his too different right now. His with another girl and I don't know if they were in relation with each other. It hurts me a lot if I hear this song.

    He takes peoples hearts and puts in a jar in which he saves for later. He minces them and puts them in meat pies and serves them in his pie shop. It's famous and people from around the world come to his store. She was a customer once but she was short on money. When she references "the ice inside your soul" she meant how he was so mean, he wouldn't give her a discount.

    I was in a great relationship for about 4 years almost 5 and towards the end things got really stressful with his family member being sick and him feeling like I wasn't doing enough (i did alot. I but I couldn't perform a miracle and make it all go away.) so he became very cold and very distant and verbally abusive. He's seen his error and come back like a puppy with tail btwn legs. I just can't take him back. I get there was stress but if that's how he handles stress its not what I need to be around.

    This song reminds me of my dad. He cheated on my mum and beat her when I was very little, eventually they divorced and he got with the woman he had cheated with. I didn't see him for over seven years and when I finally let him back into my life and tried to trust him, he just threw it back in my face by ignoring me and rejecting me because he prefers my sisters. I don't even feel like a person to him, it feels like I'm just a trophy and when I do something for him to be proud of then he'll acknowledge my existance and try to show me off, but I won't let him. I won't be another trophy in his cabinet or, as christina perri says, another heart in his jar.

    This song has a different meaning to me, my father left me and my mother when we trusted a lot in him and of course, my mother loved him. When he left I promissed I would never ever trust him again. Then now he came and told me to go to live with him, he took me to expensive restaurants and buy me unnecesary things thinking then I would go to live with him. But in the end, I realized that I am just another daughter cause he has a lot of daughters he left apart and i'm not planning to give him my heart just for him to put it in his jar of hearts.

    This is a story that you typically see in high school. The guy moves from girl to girl (-running 'round leaving scars, collecting your jar of hearts) but this girl fell deeply in love with him. She was his shadow meaning she followed him everywhere. He broke her heart by moving on to another girl which left her half alive. Now he wants her back but she wants no part of it because she knows what he is and he will only break her heart again. He's cold hearted (-ice inside your soul").

    My meaning of jar of hearts by christina perri is that she has been dumped and her life is like she has no heart to love somebody else.
    And shes accusing her ex boyfriend of stealing her heart and as he goes around falling in love he also steals other girls hearts who are innocent and her song is representing all the girls who are the victims to his totture and thievery.

    Boys are geared to proving themselves as men. Rites of passage. They do this in various ways, and learn with their friends and in locker room bragadosio, that one of the biggest ways of proving manhood is to conquer girls. To capture their hearts and dump 'em like vanquished foes. Girls are proned to believe their lies, because they so want to be loved. It's tragic, isn't it, that girls often have to learn the hard way not to trust guys motives. If I could talk to them, I'd tell them that guys in heat will tell them anything, likely or not. Every now and then, a guy is truly in love. But he's got an uphill journey ahead of him in convincing a 'sadder but wiser' girl he's the 'real deal'.

    This song is about how a girl loved a guy so much and the guy did but he cheated on her with other girls and totally broke her heart and he tried to get her back but he couldn't because he broke her heart too far and he tried everything but nothing would work so eventually he just gave up but the girl still loved him but couldn't get over the fact that he cheated on her with other girls so she will forget him before the broken heart gets more broken.

    To me, jar of hearts is a story about how a girl has been deeply in love with a boy, but he's played her. However, he suddenly realizes what he's missing out on, and wants her back, but can't have her, because he's treated her so badly. She's glad she escaped the circle before he could hurt her more, and he carries on going around, breaking more girls hearts, slowly getting a "jar" of them.

    I think the reason why I love this song is because I've loved a boy for 6 months without him knowing. Then when he knew I had a big crush on him we started to go steady. After 3 weeks he left me because he found someone new at our school. When he was so sick of her he came back to me asking for forgiveness but it was too late. -_- the trust that I knew never came back after he broke my heart. :(

    Like she says: "collecting your jar of hearts, tearing them apart".
    He's going around and every chance he gets he breaks a girls heart, my guess; she was one of them. I'm not saying he's a cheat, liar or whatever, maybe he was. But this song has touched so many girls who's heart got broken and it's just sad that guys would go around doing that. But not all of us girls are perfect because this song could also come from a guys side of opinion who's heart was broken. Thus she not only sings for the girls but "all the teared up hearts, who got stuck within a jar. "

    The song is about a guy who broke the heart of a girl who was totally in love with him. He did not understand what the girl had for him and he went away for someone else. The girl in the other hand, had no choice but to go on with her life and only time could heal the pain and wound that the guy left in her heart. But what goes around, comes around. The guy once again pleaded for a chance to be once again at the girl's heart but she was too strong and let she him go because she knew that it won't be impossible for him to hurt her once again.

    The title "jar of hearts" represents all the girls this man she is addressing has hurt by cheating, lying, or neglect, including herself. When they broke up she had to put herself back together and build a new "heart". Now he's back asking to reconcile their relationship and she speaks up for herself and all the other girls this man has hurt. She does not want to risk betting her heart ripped away again.

    My meaning to jar of hearts is that there is a little girl named taylor love and she has cancer and the chorus speaks out to me and says that cancer is running around in taylor's body leaving scars and that cancer is tearing taylor apart. I pray that god heals that cancer and I think that abby miller is such an inspiration and I'm glad that someone is reaching out to taylor and trying everything under their power to help her!

    Having the person you love treat you like you mean the world to them. Then stab you in the back and go for someone else. Then once that doesn't work out for them they fall back to you and treat you like they care again. And after they ripped out your heart they think they can just steal it from you again. That's what this song "jar of hearts " means to me.

    I think that this song is about a person who broke up or broken up with by another person. The first person finally is getting over that other person and moving on, and then the other person comes back and says " be with me again? " and the first person says you broke my heart, I got over it and now you are back to break my heart again? Uh. "

    It's wonderful to fall in love but it is really heartbreaking to feel neglected by the person whom you thought was the best gift you have received. The best person you want to be with forever. But that's just it. One can think of many reasons why not to fall in love but only one reason to staying in love. However, you're just a person, you're not god who always understands and is omniscient. Love hurts.

    This song fits for kc conception an actress from phil who recently broke up with her bf and through her interviews that she gave everything and yet she was taken for granted by the man she love the most. And he asked for another chance but she can't accept cos' she has given him 7 chances and for the 8 times she gave up! This really fits her cos' the content of the song is what really happens in her life.

    The first time I heard this song it really catches the whole out of me because this song really suits for what I'm going through right now. I was left by the man I really love for someone but just after a few days he talked to me and told me that he was a big fool in choosing that girl over me. I was surprised when I heard those words from him. I sufferd so much when he left me, I even think to end my life but thanks for my friends and family who were always there for me to cheer me up. And now I realised that he is not that worth loving for because he gave me so much pain for an unsure relationship with that girl.

    I think, for me, it was about a girl who felt like cheated with the boy he treated like his everything. That made her feel she's just "nothing". The girl who was really inlove with her boyfriend but that guy always made her feel, he's just nothing, like a past time. And then when she realize that, she's really tired of showing him love. (even if it hurts so much inside) she decided that, it's better to break-up with him. And when he break up with him, the boy comes running to the girl, and realize that he lost something special. But now, the girl have learned a lesson. It's better to be thankful. He made her really strong. At least. She wont feel pain anymore. That's a lesson. You need to appreciate someone's feelings for you. Because if you don't. She'll probably become tired. And when that happens, you can never have her again.

    To me, this song is obviously about a boy who doesn't treat people right.
    I think that she knew this boy, and knew that he'd broken countless hearts before. But she thought that he would be different for her, that he could change. And then she realises that he's exactly the same for her as he had been for other girls. So she leaves him.
    But then he realises that no one wants him anymore, because of what he's done, so he goes running back to her, saying that he was sorry and he never meant it. And this song is her way of telling him and everyone else that she's strong enough to live without him, and that she doesn't need him anymore.

    This is about jack the ripper, who went around london cutting people up and stealing their organs for unknown reasons. His victims were found with various scars, and jack himself was unknown, meaning he lived "half alive" as his alter ego. Symbolically this makes sense, because jack the ripper's victims were often young women, and he would leave them dead, presumably after rape, much like this "player" is leaving her after he gets what he wants.

    I think this song is about a girl who loved her boyfriend. She thought that he was everything to her. That she was lucky to have him. Until she has had enough of his games cause it was killing her. Then she managed to take hold of her life and left him. Now he is realising he was the lucky one and wants her back but its just a little too late. Also on the part collecting a jar of hearts. In my head I see the boy walking around with a jar of bloodied hearts. To make him feel good. And deep down he is nothing. Just a piece of s*t

    I think it means a boy whom she cared and loved very much for, perhaps a first love. Maybe he lies to her, or they keep getting back together after constant break ups. He probably makes promises he doesn't keep, says he won't hurt her but he does. And.
    Then she puts her foot down, and won't take the heartbreak anymore. This guy sounds like a player if he's collecting jars of hearts. This song exactly.
    Reminds me of my ex. A perfect description.

Loved with everything I had. He told me he loved me but left me and now is with another girl. I'm just trying to stay strong and remind myself that its for the best. My heart isn't for collection in a jar anymore.

    Although I am quite young and never even had a boyfriend, I definitely feel sympathy. You can tell that she truly feels what she's singing about, and didn't just write it for popularity. It is so. Sad. But this song makes you want to listen to it all the time. I think it reminds people that others sometimes feel the same, or close to the same way, but on the opposite side, also reminds people to be careful, and they might be hurting people more than they think.

    The song is about a person who had relationship ended either the reason is third party or being neglected. A person thought leaving was the best things because maybe it was thought the love was not enough. However after sometimes a month or year he or she decided to come back but the problem was she or he doesn't want to reconcile. Once broken will be forever broken same as relationship, if the relationship were taken for granted it is hard to put it back especially to those person who love honestly. If a person give everything to the relationship and it was throw away so easily when that person able to mend definitely it will never allow to hurt by same person. It is better to be alone than hurt for second time. Never take for granted, love will fade if were not taken carefully.

    It reminds me of my dad, he cheated on my mum with various different women then he knew she was the weakest of all the women so he dumped the rest and collected his jar of hearts to go back with her to help him with his problems and jar of hearts, asking for forgivness, she basically turned around and to his surprise she told him to deal with his own problems and as much as she still loved him she knew it was wrong to be with a man who didn't love her back, so he added another heart to his jar.

    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.

    These lyrics are so upsetting relevantly to my breakup with my love of 9 years. Every time he'd abuse me, I'd leave and come back because we were too dependent on eachother. Neither of us cheated but he was physical and controllive so I couldn't escape in same room staying with him. One day it was so serious violence I had to run away. I knew I can't forgive same mistake he knew I had nowhere to go now he regrets but wll never change. So despite his loveletters and everyday sorries and roses chocolates to my shop. Jar of hearts done dusted I'm not weak now.

    This is proberly my favourtie song, it's so beautiful and so true. Most girls can releate to this song, and boys sometimes but mostly girls. I've been in love a few times, but most of the reletionships didn't exactly work out. I went out with this one boy in my year who begged me to go out with me and people warned me he was a player but I didn't listen so, I went out with him. Our reletionship lasted a week? He dumped me. He didn't care, I cried. So, my 'friend' went out with him, they broke up, got together, broke up and yeah. He asked me I said no, he begged me, tried everything he could, I finaly said yes because I thought he'd change so then I heard he and 'the friend' cheated. He would't admit and he never did. I dumped him, he asked me out. Now I said no for the last time and he's showing his true colours now by being nasty to me, and my mum. I hate him, and if he asks me out again I think I'm gonna have to slap him one. Ugh, boys.

    I think it's about the elusive chupacabra & his wiley skills. I believe the vague lyrics can only lead one to believe it's a glimpse into his tattered soul or the fact that he had some bad sushi. Particularly apparent in the metaphors is the underlying angst & distress experienced in regards to his relationship with his mongoose mother--a very oedipus rex dynamic if you ask me. What a shame. The union could have been so magical.

    This song reminds me of an ex, who I loved so much, but he cheated on me with a friend of mine, and now hes left wishing he had me in his life again, but he went and collected his jar of hearts and is now with someone he doesn't care about, so karmas gone and bitten his backside, and he knows how I feel. I love the song, its more about female empowerment and being able to show your ex that its them that missing out and not you.

Our r/ships kinda fades away due to distance, carrer etc, and sometimes I even still get in touch wit them and we discuss our new lifes. Mind you, these r/ships are not one night stands, 7, 5, etc. I dnt knw how I do it. Is better than collecting hearts of jar.

    When I listened to this song for the first time, it's normal. Now I listened to it again, then I understand how my loved one feels now. I love him very much, but I just took it for granted, bcs I know he loved me too. I act like he is my family, who gonna stick with me until forever, without I realize I don't show him enough attention. In fact, I love him very much. But the mistake did keep us separate. I do want him back. But I need to change first. He is hurt much. I will work hard to win him back. Idk now who is he with. But I do want him back. I love him very much.

    It reminds me of my ex boyfriend whom I was with for 5yrs. We had a planned to get married when he came back in the phil. But when he went to korea he lied to me that he has a gurl in korea and now she was pregnant. He wants to pretend that everything was ok and come back to me. Who do you think he was?. He ended up with his gurl and gudluck to him. I was waiting for nothing. =((

    It's crazy I saw it coming but I always fought myself that she would change and that ou relationship would work and she ended up hurting me bad and I know this song will be the story of my life soon because I know she will be back trying to win me back but I won't be there anymore. Goodbye I thought you were the one but you proved me wrong.

    This song really struck me. Every words reminds me of my liar bf, ex-bf should I say. He hurts me not just once but a lot of times. And one day I realize that I was too tired of hoping that our relationship would last forever. I broke up with him, and he did everything to win me back. But the scars that he cause was too deep and it somehow made me strong. I may forgive him of what he'd done but will never forget the pains that scar my heart.

    No song has ever made an impression on my heart like this song but I am the one that scarred my first love. He kept coming back for more but I still rejected and broke his heart time after time. Now I realise that I love and need him more than anything in my life but he won't take the chance on me again. Serves me right - the biggest mistake I made. I cry every time I hear this song and I think I always will.

    I am this guy with a jar of hearts. I hurt the one I love, I broke her heart, I broke my promises to her, and now I just long to be with her, to hold her again. I heard this song after I had cheated on her and I cried, I knew that when she found out I would lose her. I deserved to lose her. I know what this songs is saying because I've done it. I'm sorry, I wish I had been a better man. Jo.

    The first time I heard this song, the first though that comes up to my mind is the man that I live in now. (if its really called live in). We been living in for 5 years, but on that five years we only share 5months together. He is working in europe while I'm hear in philippines now. We still together now but I never his love for me, but still I keep on waiting and waiting, and waiting and waiting and sometimes hoping that he come home an say I can't live without you because I love you. I love him so much. Even though I'm not really sure if he come home for me. I miss him so much.

    This song reminds me of the boy who broke up with me today after telling him I didn't trust him. I caught him texting another girl. He says he met her after we broke up a while ago. He has an smart answer for everything and somehow blamed me. Well this song helps give me the courage to back away if he comes back again. It hurts to let him go but I also feel empowered cause I know I deserve better!

    My sereal boyfriend off 12 years on and off (childhood sweetheart) called it off again for the last time about 2 weeks before I heard this song. It has now been two months and I still refuse to return his calls, emails, texts and love. Thank you to christina perri for penning a song that speaks louder than I have ever experienced. You literally saved me from my reoccuring effort to try and make it work. I will never forget this song.

    I love this song, although it's sad, it's easy to realate to because I had a boyfriend like that once and I feel for her. It's a vey believable video and I love the clever way it was chorographed and the meaning of the lyrics. I want to be a singer when I'm a bit older and a always keep the lyrics of songs I like to sing, songs with lyrics I treasure, just songs that are close to me. I mostly sing dramatic emotional songs like this one. I practise over and over, sometimes for fun and sometimes for big singing competitions. My three favourite songs right now are this one, jar of hearts by christina perri, angels to fly, by edd sheerin and the only exception by paramore. I highly recommend these three songs to anyone who loves songs they can relate too or just want good music! Like another person who posted on here, I sing this song all the time and I also agree that this song is haunting and upsetting, yet somehow in a good, mystirious way.

    I think this song is about a girl that haves her heart broken by a gentlemen and that she can't take 1 more step towards him because she thinks all that's is regret. Also she fells like trash cause probably he threw her away and decided to try a new piece of gum just like her. She probably still haves scars that still wont let her forget about what happen with her and him. What I think should have been done is her. Like trying to break up with him since the begining because these should have been prevented sine the first dat.

    This song can actually mean anything to anyone who's ever had their heart broken. Obviously the guy did something because he was selfish and after he finally realized what he'd lost, he wanted her back and she tells him to beat it! Which is exactly what I'm in the process of right now. As much as you love them and want to forgive, once you cross that line it's too late to ever go back.

    My boyfriend dedicated this song to me. After I kissed another guy at this party. It wasn't exactly my fault though. The boy kissed me. And my boyfriend didn't believe it because before that, I kissed one of kiss friend's. And both kisses were just a simple 1 second peck, that didn't mean anything. So, we've got back together after the first cheating and the second cheating we've never gotten back till now, I'm just waiting for him. Its been 6 months.

    This song to me, is about a girl who tried so long to get the heart of a boy she loved, but he was too wrapped up in f*ckin and ckucking to notice her. She spent years just a shadow and was turned down many times. Once the boy started to grow up, he realized she was there and he now wants her, but she has already learned how to live without him, and has seen the scars he leaves.

    I'm so upset. This song so mean to me. My husband always cheating on me. And when I found out he promise he wont do it again but it still happen again and again. Now he was changed 100%. He promised if he lie to me again, if he contact her ex again, he will die. But its too late. I don't trust him anymore. My heart was broken badly. I dnt know how to live with him anymore. No one knows that I'm crying badly. -ira ariana-.

    This song was just being released when I started dating a man who, as it turned out, is unable to love anyone. Thought it was odd that he did not like to kiss but let it go. After four months of dating I told him that I was falling in love with him and he became very upset and told me I was "rushing things". Well, after eight months I asked it he could possibly hold my hand once in a while and he became very upset and told me that I needed to give him more time because he had been burned in the past and it was difficult for him to open up to anyone. Well. That was the final straw. I have a feeling he will die a very lonely old man, if he doesn't die from the cold within his soul first.

    Christina perri wrote Jar of Hearts because she kept going back to this one boy repeatedly and one day she just woke up and said that this was the day when the word no had meaning to it. She broke up with him for real, the last time, and wrote about it. Later this song would be featured on So You Think You Can Dance and get signed to Atlantic Records. Christina perri will be remembered for her debut song and she will soon become a legend.

    This song reminds me of my ex. She broke my heart twice. The first time I took her back and she swore she'd never hurt me again. And of course I shouldn't have been surprised by her actions because I knew she had a pattern of cheating or moving from one guy to the next in her history. I just never judged her for it and always tried to be understanding and wanted to believe she was capable of fidelity and changing her habits. Never thought she'd hurt me like this.

    Is it harry potter ost, isn't it?
    More like a love songs to me. It's clear enough that she and her boyfriend having a 'broken up-back together-broken up-back together' relationship.
    And at the time they were broken, the boyfriend fine other girls, and had broken up with them also.
    So he leaving scars not only to the girl I the story, but to the other girls.
    But this time, she had enough. She doesn't wanna back together once more, even she really2 had broken and losing half part of her life.
    This song make me strong. At first, I heard this song in radio, try to remember the words, and I remember it as 'what do you want for me? ' Ended up in adam lambert's song. But guess what, when I wake up in the morning, my concious reminds me about the words. So yeay, already download it. So?(•^? ^•)? ^^

    I think jar of hearts has a meaning like this: A girl found a boy she loved, He made her feel important and special. Soon she finds out he didn't feel the same, He loved her once but he has had too menny hearts too feel real love. She feels atually sick because she has lost someone that made her feel wanted. She relises that there was no point being upset over someone that treats people like nothing
    fall in love with someone special.

    A heart breaker - moving on from one girl to the next, not caring that they fall in love with him "collecting your jar of hearts", just that he needs (wants) to play the field and leave a trail of destruction in his wake - a tornado of emotions in turmoil.
    His pride makes him think that every girl he has ever had will want him - always - and all he has to do is snap his fingers and she will be there.
    But some girls are strong - as the pain fades, resolve takes its place - she is aware of what he is.
    "who do you think you are"
    And what he has done.
    "going around breaking hearts"
    And will not weaken again to his advances as she knows all he will do is reopen the wound which she will already bear forever.

    This guy is a classic addict personality. He literally runs from lover to lover, leaving his lovers scarred. He is a serial scarrer.
    He makes smoothe promises to all his lovers and then breaks them. This actually leaves his lovers feeling like the relationship didn't really exist (a ghost) and that they are just part of this guys collection of broken hearts. Back in the day we called that being a notch on a bed post.
    This one scarred lover learned to smile again and realizes that this guy's real name is "regret." She has grown strong and has the nerve now to ask the guy "who do you think you are?" Don't come back. Bravo to her.

    The first time I met her, new years 2007. Surpassed all my expectations. We couldn't see eachother often but when we did, it was amazing. I broke her heart twice but she had the final blow and left me for another guy. I only realised then, what I truly had. For one year I missed her, my first love. Then she found her way back into my arms. This time I'm not letting go (",) takie.

    After reading some of these post I've heard a couple similar stories about broken hearts and stuff, and as a 16 year old dude, I probly know more than I should about heartbreak, but one thing I do know, is that if you love somebody enuf, ur not gona let go of them, no matter what. My first and only love hurt me in a way you can't imaginen I was devistated, and there was a point where I said I could never forgive her. But then I remembered how much I cared and what I really felt and I said to myself, no matter what, ima stick with this girl til the end, I'm not givin up, because true love is an unbreakable bond. How many times do you think we hurt god with our sin, what if he just said I'm done and stopped lovin us, its our job ti keep the love going, especially if the other person is tryna rekindle the flame. These are my words of wisdom, pain is apart of life, but love is the bandaid, that makes it better.

    I really lv this song, and I think what Genevieve888 said about the guy that keeps coming back, relates to me in so many ways. Its so poweerful in meaning, and I can relate to christina so much. I so know where she is coming from. I sing along to it all the time I hear it. But I can also kinda relate to my dad as well, too many broken promises. Love this song.! Too true lyrics xx too true.

    I personally believe that this song will help alot of young girls with their relationships. Because, younger girls tend to girl for heartbreakers but they need to realise that they don't need them in their lifes. One of my bestfriends was dating this guy and for no reason he would just break up with her and date other girl for a couple of days or weeks. And then after he got over his new girlfrend he would go back to my friend, and her being as silly as she was went back to him, and kept getting heart broken. I tried to help her but she wouldnt listen to my advice so I just said listen to this song and she did. She hasnt been back and has moved on. She said this song had a lot of meaning and she could relate to it very well. So if it can do it to one female, then after it has been out for a while who know all the heart breaking men might realise they don't always get what they want and they need to stop doing it. But then again not all males are scum.

    I believe this song is about a girl who fell in love with a man, someone she thought was her prince charming, and she put her whole self into the relationship and gave her heart to him. She thought he gave his heart as well but it turns out that he's just an immature little boy who lies and dates one girl at a time until he gets what he wants and moves on. He's completely heartless until he realizes that he's just empty inside and being with her filled him and he had true happiness with her and he was just scared to take full commitment but wants her back becasue he's ready to take that step but he ruined his chances. She has learned not to trust him and that if he truly loved her, he wouldn't have been afraid. There are real men out there waiting for a special girl like her to give her heart to him and for him to give his heart.
