Jar of Hearts 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...

    ok, if anyone is thinking its a serial killer its not. First of all i love this song from the beginning. Its about Christina going out with this guy and he was cheeting on her. He told her and she want back to him. He continued to cheet on her and this time he wanted to be back to her she said "no." and she finally moved on with her life and he was crawling back to her. She didnt let him.

    I think it's about a guy who broke her and a bunch of other girls hearts. He wants Christina back but she says no. She tells him off("who do you think you are running around leaving scars collecting your jar of hearts").

    serial killer? Really? No, i think it is about how this guy breaks all these girls hearts including Christina's and he wants her back but she says no, breaking his heart and making all the girls happy and "giving their hearts back."

    the song is about a guy that she was with who was kinda like a player. He took all the girls' hearts and then in the end she takes her heart back which gives all the other girls their hearts back as well.
