Jewel – Carnivore

Jewel – Carnivore Lyrics

So much space can fit in a sigh
More than words can say
I'm left here standing with my hands all awkward
Trying to mend space
I used to know you
But not anymore
Your substance has been subtracted
Word by word

Silence in my ears where once you offered your conviction
Your promises are dry beads that crack with nostalgia
But that's alright, that's okay
Never shoulda given myself to you anyway
Never trust your pink fleshy heart
Never trust your pink fleshy heart
To a carnivore
To a carnivore

Your soul is an ink stain
Your perfection is a mend
And you're as fragile as your thoughtlessness
But you're as strong as you can bend
You could only believe in embryos
So you held all your high hopes through a telescope
And lavender haunted you
So I could only laugh in yellow
Yes, you have a genius for subtlety
I slip through the fingers of your ambiguity

But that's alright, that's okay
Never shoulda given myself to you anyway
Never trust your pink fleshy heart
Never trust your pink fleshy heart
To a carnivore

And I don't know what I did
But I won't do it again
This time I'll be my own best friend
And I take back my songs and my poetry
Next time I won't be so easy to read

And I'll never trust my pink fleshy
No
Never trust my pink fleshy heart
No
Never trust my pink fleshy heart
To a carnivore
To a carnivore
To a carnivore

“Carnivore,” by Jewel Murray.

“I’d forgotten I’d changed the bridge over time into this low, mellow little-red-riding hook spooky bridge and I didn’t realize there was ever another bridge over time. My fans on Twitter reminded me to go back to the original bridge on “it.  I was sent a bootleg of it and now it’s more dynamic. My fans speak up a lot. They really wanted “Carnivore” on the album.”

Are we resigning to the fact that we prob won't get band studio carnivore? I want it, but I think my new huge Jewel CD for my car is going to have to stay with some old 90s bootleg of Carnivore with a band, and maybe a more recent live version.

Best line in that song:

"Lavender haunted you, so I could only laugh in yellow"

What a great description of what it's like to have to walk on eggshells with someone.

That's always been my favorite line in the song :wub:

It reminds me of that line in Painters about blueprints being too sad, so they make them yellow. :wub:

The red light cannot change the mood of the blue guitar that's played

Love the verses in this song. they're so appropriate to any dying or stagnant relationship. I love the lavender line and the genius for subtlety/fingers of ambiguity phrase. So appropriate to my relationship right now.

Such a powerful song with raw lyrics that Jewel always delivers with such passion!  She sure has a way with words.

Could you imagine Major Lazer of someone having a go at this song? It could be a huge club hit with the right production.
