Jar of Hearts Lyrics
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.

Men must know what they truly want in a woman. Until they know what their likes and dislikes about themselves and when it comes to the opposite gender, they will have issues in their relationships. Unless they reveal who they truly are, a woman will not understand them. Like men, women can't read a mind. They will not know how you truly are if mwn will not be open and will not communicate. Perhaps these types of men who collect the jar of hearts are broken mentally and emotionally. That they feel it's their right to collect the hearts of girls and break their hearts. It's truly a matter of principles and priorities. I still believe men can stick to only one woman if she really gets him and they are free to talk about anything without being reprimanded. The right woman will be the only woman a man can give truly his heart and soul. Until then, he will have difficulty when dealing with women and in his relationships. Good luck to all gals and guys.

A man dumped her and many other girls. He begs for Christina's love but she won't risk getting her heart broken again.

For me this is about Eating Disorders. That's my opinion, and I guess only people with an eating disorder can understand. Love this song!

Absolutely about a narcissistic man. There's no dismantling this song he's a pathetic narcissist.

Completely agree with May 3rd, November 11th and #2. You got it right it's a song about a man with a personality disorder I believe sociopathy. She is that one woman he keeps going back to because he thinks he controls her and she kept on allowing him to come back. Meanwhile, he's running around seducing, charming, using and probably sleeping with anyone who he can. He's an attention seeking narcissistic sociopath who lacks empathy and has no remorse. He does not care if he breaks many hearts his heart and soul is icy " your gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul". Finally the female decides she's had it with him. She has realized who he really is and says don't come back. I know a sociopath. Watching him was textbook the eyes, the mirroring, the fake emotions, the fake love and interest, etc.
Back to the song.... You can't break her spirit so don't try anymore.

I believe this song is about overcoming addiction
Whether that be drugs, alcohol, gambling etc
These things destroy lives and our evil
The corporations and people who profit from the are running around leaving millions of people scarred everyday
Collecting there jar of hearts
When your hooked you learn to live half alive
The people who profit from these immorale enterprises are ruthless people with ice running through their viens
But if your strong enough you remind yourself that you can't take one more step towards it because all that's waiting is regret
You realise that your not your addictions ghost anymore

I love this song you just hear the sadness in her voice. She sings of a man who can't be true to one. She must have fallen in love with him and he hurt her. This is what he does he needs to much attention. When he gets it and the women fall for him he moves on the next but trying to still hang on to the others. "Collecting his jar of hearts". I can relate I have been there before and watched the man who stole my heart say the same words to others right in front of me. It was so hurtful it takes time to heal. "Your gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul, but don't come back to me". Perfect words for this type of person he has an Icey soul but one I can almost feel sorry for. Someone like this is lacking feelings and needs emotional help. Hurting others and leaving a path of broken hearts.

I agree with the May 3, 2012 poster completely. Some men are like that and they will never be cited. You can offer them all the love you have and it will never be enough. They just move on to the next victim. Whatever or whoever can give them a fix.
