To ask for the thing I love...
But I love..."

Quotes from Jewel


Having mutilated
and freed myself
from the very wings
which for so long
held me aloft
I have cast my heart
like a purpled fruit
toward the violent earth,
far from the Heaven
of your arms


There is a pretty girl
on the
of the magazine
all i can see
are my dirty
turning the page

"My hands are small I know, but they're not yours, they are my own, they're not yours, they are my own and I am never broken... In the end, only kindness matters..."

"The more I live, the more I know... what's simple is true, I love you."
~"What's Simple Is True"~

"When you're standing in deep water, and you're bailing yourself out with a straw... and when you're drowning in deep water, and you wake up making love to a wall... it's these little times that help to remind it's nothing without love."
~"Deep Water"~

"A blind man on the corner said it's simple - like flipping a coin... Don't matter what side it lands on if it's someone else's dime...

But I've been down so long, it can't be loner still... I've been down so long that the end must be drawing near."
~"Down So Long"~
