Jar of Hearts

A few weeks back Christina Perri was an unsung gem waiting to be discovered. Now after her song “Jar of Hearts” was featured on the show ‘So You Think You Can Dance” her breakup song catapulted into the billboard charts and quickly sold more than 100,000 thousand copies. It was an overnight success. it’s only been a few weeks and reality hasn’t sunk in, but she quit her day job waiting tables at The Melrose Café and though still unsigned at this point, after performing at several popular TV shows it will only be a matter of time before some big record label ask her to sign the magic paper.

Like all those 100,000 people who bought her song I love love love it too! She has an angelic voice and eyes and seem pretty cool. I can’t wait to hear more from her. In the meantine here's some videos, the 1st one is from "SYTYCD" routine performed by Billy Bell and Kathryn McCormick.  I've included the lyrics too.

               

Jar Of Hearts lyrics


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

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

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

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

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

Who do you think you are?
runnin’ ’round leaving scars

collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
don’t come back for me
who do you think you are?

it took so long just to feel alright
remember how to put back the light in my eyes
i wish i had missed the first time that we kissed
cause you broke all your promises
and now you’re back
you don’t get to get me back
who do you think you are?
running around leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don’t come back for me
dont come back at all

don’t come back at all
who do you think you are?
