  • I know I can't take one more step towards you
    'Cause all that's waiting is regret
    Don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
    You lost the love I loved the most

    I learned to live, half alive
    And now you want me one more time

    And who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round 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?

    I hear you're asking all around
    If I am anywhere to be found
    But I have grown too strong
    To ever fall back in your arms

    And I learned to live, half alive
    And now you want me one more time

    And who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round 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?

    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

    And who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round 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
    Don't come back at all

    And who do you think you are?
    Runnin' 'round leaving scars
    Collecting your jar of hearts
    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? Writer/s: Barrett Noubar Yeretsian, Christina Judith Perri, Drew Lawrence

  • Taylor from KentuckyMe and my soccer team listen to this song on the bus home after we lose a game. We love this song
  • Nick Dv from HawaiiJust listened to this on an old Christine CD and thought, she does an amazing cover of this song.

    Was totally chuffed to see she wrote and debuted it, totally awesome song - one of the must haves for anyone serious about music.
  • Chris from Germany The refrain reminds me of The World I Know by Collective Soul
  • Gabby from Las Vegas, NvI LOVE this song. It can be so sad yet hopeful at the same time.
  • Suzie James from Kingston, Jamaicathis songs is beautiful...I first heard it when she proformed it on "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE" i think song is about letting go of unhealthy relationship where this person is only in her life to hurt her ...she reminds herself and the man that he is nt good for her and that he needs to leave
