"Intuition" as written by Lester A Mendez and Jewel Kilcher....
I'm just a simple girl
In a high tech digital world
I really try to understand
All the powers that rule this land
They say Miss J's big butt is boss
Kate Moss can't find a job
In a world of post modern fad
What was good now is bad

It's not hard to understand
Just follow this simple plan

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You look at me
but you're not quite sure
Am I it or could you get more?
You learn cool from magazines
You learn love from Charlie Sheen

If you want me let me know
I promise I won't say no

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You got something that you want me to sell
Sell your sin. Just cash in.
You got something that you want me to tell
You'll love me. Wait and see.

If you want me
Don't play games
I promise
it won't be in vain
Uh-uh-uh

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction

    General Commenti dont think shes selling out. i think the song and the video are mocking every other video on mtv today, and how people get lost in the flashy lights and the dance routines. if anything, the song says to look past these things and follow your heart instead

    General CommentI agree with y2kid77. The video is mocking the media. It shows how much we are bombarded with ads and sexual music videos. Even the song is sort of about it.

    (All the powers that rule this land
    They say Miss J's big butt is boss
    Kate Moss can't find a job
    In a world of post modern fad
    What was good now is bad)

    That basically says J.Lo's all over now-a-days, and Kate Moss was a fad. Just like all the other trends and fads, she just faded away. I think the chorus talks about having to be true to yourself and everything will probably turn out ok.

    General CommentIf one has *truly* embraced the idea of 'to each his own'--then one has to give up judging what others do as somehow universally bad. As Jewel points out: "in this world of postmodern fad, what was good...now is bad". So for instance, repressing one's sexuality and feeling negative if others don't do the same (in prudish times before postmodernism) has gone from being virtuous to being immoral in the world Jewel is singing from. The video shows versatility and her undeniable sex appeal--with obvious intelligence exuding from the choreography and the humor ("Jewel's music sounds much better now that she's dancing. I love it! SCRREEEEEAAAAMMMM!" Suzi from Anchorage, AK.) This song carries the artist's message, namely of trusting one's instincts--and that each person can find their version of heaven if they use the compass of what makes them feel happy. It is clear that for people who liked Jewel's earlier work better and have no interest in diversifying their appreciation talents, they should perhaps focus on listening to her earlier albums and other artists who are in similar phases. In that case, following their "intuition" would mean not listening to the new album...and to only post critical thoughts if they are enjoying the act of supplying such criticism.

    General CommentWhat happened to Jewel??
    She went in a difference direction and wrote new songs...
    This isn't "Let's-all-say-how-terrible-Jewel-has-become"... this is SongMeanings. Her lyrics are still just as moving and well thought out as before.

    "You got something that you want me to sell
    Sell your sin. Just cash in."
    I believe this whole song is about how everyone conforms to what society expects of them. I also believe she is mocking.

    General CommentI never did get people that got mad if an artist did something different and called it selling out. Jewel has more than one dimension to her like anyone, and she wanted to explore her sexual side a little more. There was nothing wrong with that, and if anyone should understand I would have thought Jewel's fans would understand that. By judging her or abandoning her for "selling out" is against all she had sung for previously. She had no reason to sell out is the thing, coming off of her previous album before 0304. She did this for personal reasons, and to experiment. Besides the music is still good it's just her image in the video people are getting after. Newsflash Jewel is a 27 year old female (when she made 0304 I think), they're sexual beings and no one should blame her for wanting to show a more sexual side.

    General CommentI think her new sound is rather cool! Why stick to the same all the time!?!

    But I have to say, I prefer This Way above 0304!!

    General CommentI'm more disappointed in her new image as opposed to the new sound of her music. Like we needed another artist using her body to sell music in an industry already consumed with sex.

    General CommentI have to say..Jewel also likes to act like a hot chick with her sexy moves, dresses and stuff (watch the 'Jupiter' video for instance). And look at the 0304 cover ( you could say that's a continuation of Intuition)!! I mean, she should! After all she is a beautiful girl but she kinda 'mocks' with herself too then!

    Not that I am against Jewel; on the contrary, I think she's amazing. But that's just the truth!
