Guitar Lesson: “Jar of Hearts” by Christina Perri

posted by

Guitar Jar has had a fair few requests over recent months for a guitar lesson demonstrating how to play “Jar of Hearts” by Christina Perri.

We’ve scanned through YouTube and there’s literally thousands of cover versions and guitar lessons of the popular song. So instead of reinventing the wheel, we’ll present a couple of videos that all ready do the job well.

We’ve also added the lyrics and chords at the bottom of the page. Grab your acoustic, a capo and enjoy…

Guitar chords & Lyrics:

Capo 1

Verse 1
Bm                                                     D
I know I can’t take one more step towards you
A                                                Em
‘Cause all thats waiting is regret
Bm                                                              D
And don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore
A                                                        G
You lost the love I loved the most
Em                           D         A
I learned to live half a life
Em                      D                        Asus4 A
And now you want me one more time

Chorus
D                                            A
Who do you think you are?
Bm
Running ’round leaving scars
G
Collecting a jar of hearts
Gm                    D
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?

Verse 2
Bm                                         D
I hear you’re asking all around
A                                             Em
If I am anywhere to be found
Bm                                     D
But I have grown too strong
A                                                G
To ever fall back in your arms
Em                                D          A
I’ve learned to live half a life

And now you want me one more time

Chorus

Running ’round leaving scars

Collecting a jar of hearts

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
Bm               F#                          D                       E
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
