Ten by Jewel

Album: Sweet and WildReleased: 2010
  • Jewel said on her website that she wrote this song after an argument with her husband, nine-time world champion pro rodeo cowboy, Ty Murray. She explained: "I'm probably the only nerd that gets a chuckle from this, but what the heck. This is one of my favorite story lyrics. I wrote it after Ty and I got in a big fight one day. I was so mad; I had to count to ten before I totally lost it. Love is a peculiar thing - it can inspire the best and the worst feeling because we let someone in so close to us. But the reward is so great too, that always keeping that perspective is key, no matter how intense a fleeting fight can be. I wrote this song as a sort of 'count to ten' experience that can help ease you out of bad feelings, and even remind you to be thankful for their best qualities too. I like the opening line 'whoever said love is easy, must have never been in love' - I think everyone can relate!"
