"Jawbreaker" as written by and Jack White Jack Lawrence....
I run so far away from you
Don't matter where I've been
Run around the world from you
And here you are again

You're a real jawbreaker
A real crook, obscene
I'd call you a heartbreaker
But I reserve that for prettier things

I tried to kill the memory
?
You must get a psychic sting
And here you are again

You're a real jawbreaker
A real crook, obscene
I'd call you a heartbreaker
But I reserve that for nicer things

I run so far away from you
It don't matter where I've been
I run around the world from you
And here you are again

You're a real jawbreaker
A real crook, obscene
I'd call you a heartbreaker
But I reserve that for nicer things

    General Commentyeah preety much thats it. i think "I try to kill the memorie by shaking up with living things" is her saying i try to forget the bad memories by having sex with other people to not think obout my partner. and the "Living things" verse probably is her calling her former partner a dead person; not a loving, living person?

    General CommentI run so far away from you
    It don't matter where I've been
    I run around the world from you
    Here you are again

    You're a real jawbreaker
    A real crook obscene
    I'd call you a heartbreaker
    But I reserve that for nicer things

    I tried to kill the memory
    By shacking up with living things
    But you must get a psychic sting
    Here you are again

    You're a real jawbreaker
    A real crook obscene
    I'd call you a heartbreaker
    But I reserve that for nicer things

    I run so far away from you
    It don't matter where I've been
    I run around the world from you
    Here you are again

    You're a real jawbreaker
    A real crook, obscene
    I'd call you a heartbreaker
    But I reserve that for nicer things

    General CommentDrippingBlueBlood has the correct lyrics.

    I think it's obviously about someone who's had their heart broken by someone they dont even particularly like or think that well of, but fell for anyway, and tried to get away from because they could only be hurt but that person always found them and brought back the bad memories.
