Jar of Hearts | Day 240

DONATE TO THE GREEN HILLS ANIMAL SHELTER

This Christina Perri song was,..challenging, to say the least. It took me about 5 takes to finish the song. It’s one of those things of “how to sing it”. I could have gone full blown Opera man on the piece, or falsetto on some of the parts. Breathy was always an option, but I decided to keep it pretty simple as sadness does not often yield complexity. I will say that this is a damn fine song and reminds me of my single days, thus me offering up thanks for being married and no longer having to worry about the hazards of dating. Jar of Hearts was a good one to sing on day 240. This will always be, as all the other songs I’ve done under the overpass, the original performer’s song and I’m just a dude singing the tune. Christina Perri’s performance is great and I can’t do any better.

Lyrics:

I know 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?
Runnin’ ’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?

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?
Runnin’ ’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?

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?
Runnin’ ’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
Don’t come back at all

And who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
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?
