on July 10, 2010

friends. old friends. new friends. its been twelve days since “jar of hearts” happened to the world. its been the best twelve days of my life for so many reasons. not just because all my dreams are coming true. not just because my career took off. not just because i quit my cafe job. not just because i flew to new york city and played the cbs morning show. not just because people believe in me. not just because it’s all happening. i’ve had the best twelve days of my life because i feel right. i feel loved + am loving the world back. im listening and responding.

JAR OF HEARTS. piano chords.

on July 02, 2010

hi everyone.

i am so touched + speechless over your overwhelming response to jar of hearts. 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. i couldnt take one more break so i wrote the song instead. i had no idea that six months later you’d all be playing the song, singing the song, dancing to the song, learning the song and loving it so much. im humbled + grateful + so excited to release more. and more. and more.
