Greetings folks.  A little bit of cross pollination going on today for this interlude.  Last Saturday we were looking for female power anthems – songs that inspire and make you want to grab the world by the lapels and give it a good shake.  Finding songs by dudes about taking names and kicking ass, was easy.  Finding female artists with similar thematic material not so much.  This song by Christina Perri was on the list of ‘girl’ power anthems.  It is clean and elegant song that speaks fluently to my heart, and speaks volumes of how differently the world is perceived depending on how you were socialized.

[Verse 1]
I know I can’t take one more step towards you,
Cause all that’s waiting is regret.
And don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore,
You lost the love I loved the most.

[Pre-Chorus]
I learned to live half alive,
And now you want me one more time

[Chorus]
And who do you think you are,
Running around 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?

[Verse 2]
I hear you’re asking all around,
If I am anywhere to be found
.
But I’ve grown too strong,
To ever fall back in your arms
.

[Pre-Chorus]
And I’ve learn to live half alive,
And now you want me one more time!

[Chorus]
And who do you think you are,
Running around 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?

[Bridge]
Dear, 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!

[Chorus]
And who do you think you are,
Running around leaving scars,
Collecting your jar of heart,
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!

[Outro]
And who do you think you are,
Running around leaving scars,
Collecting your jar of hearts,
And 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?
