Christina Perri...a new Alanis Morissette?

When I first heard Christina Perri's "Jar of Hearts", I thought of Alanis Morissette because it was so edgy, defiant, and vocal about the pain felt in the heartbreaking relationship. It reminded me of "You Oughtta Know" in that the lyrics were quite angrily directed at an ex-lover who caused pain by obviously leaving them for another woman.
However, there is one marked difference in the two songs. In Alanis Morissette's song, she sticks around and wants to be sure the ex is constantly reminded of the pain he caused her; whereas, in Christina Perri's song, she just "begs" him to stay out of her life.

Dis you listen to it? Touching, isn't it? Perhaps now you should go check out her official music video on YouTube.
