about

It takes a great deal of maturity and empathy to taking a step back and evaluating the root cause of a hurt someone has dealt you. However, I think it took an even greater degree of compassion to understand that the pain I felt was manifested in my own feelings and what my ex did was a result of her own broken heart. Because of this realization, Jaded Jasmine is my favourite song on this album. By taking myself out of the equation, I saw a person who was deeply wounded and sought to indulge herself in order to find a unity she was lacking.

lyrics

Jaded Jasmine lies in her bed alone
With a paper-thin paperback romance
She must’ve read a thousand times before

Discrete sighs roll out from lips
She must’ve kissed a thousand times before
Oh she knows how to get what she wants
Yet her needs are tangled up in knots

Who says she can have too much
Of a good thing, of a good thing?
When her heart, it starves to feel
Anything at all

Jaded Jasmine stays awake all night
Closely watching the same old films
She must’ve seen a thousand times before
And when the credits are rolling, she’s on the screen
In this moment of pure vulnerability

Who says she can have too much
Of a good thing, of a good thing?
When her heart, it starves to feel
Anything at all

Who says she can have too much
Of a good thing, of a good thing?
When her heart, it starves to feel
Anything at all

She must’ve heard this, she must’ve heard this
She must’ve heard this a thousand times before
A thousand times before, a thousand times before

Somewhere in her treasured chest
A heart of gold is collecting dust
Like the medals on her vanity
That are all just starting to rust

Somewhere in her treasured chest
My heart of gold is collecting dust
I’m still hanging from her vanity
And I’m just starting to rust
Who says she can have too much
Of a good thing, of a good thing?
When her heart, it starves to feel
Anything at all

Who says she can have too much
Of a good thing, of a good thing?
When her heart, it starves to feel
Anything at all

Her heart is screaming, her heart is screaming
Her heart is screaming, her heart is screaming

Jaded Jasmine has lost all her self-worth
She must’ve tried a thousand times before
Searching for the love she deserves
