Jewel abandons naïve lyrics for a more mature sound on 'This Way'

Jewel Kilcher's most popular songs can be divided into two main themes. There are the "Why-don't-you-love me?" songs, such as "You Were Meant for Me" from 1995's Pieces of You, and there are "Believe-in-yourself" songs, such as "Deep Water," from 1998's Spirit.

Through the years, that prophecy has rung true. Within hours of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, it was being compared to the Japanese surprise attack on our naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
