Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) has some great one-liners on Nashville, but every once in awhile, she sings a song so beautiful, we wish we had a direct line into her every thought. In the Nashville Season 1 Finale, “I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive,” Juliette takes the stage at the Bluebird Cafe to honor her mother.

Earlier in the episode, Jules spent the first funeral thinking her mother was a drug addict who couldn’t stay away from the hard stuff, that she didn’t love her enough to stay clean. But later, she receives a letter from her mother, post-mortem, saying that she did what she did — read: purposely overdosed — to cleanse her daughter of the dirty image she had acquired. She gave herself to save her. Deep, huh? We’re still wrapping our minds around how we would read and process such a message.

At the end, she invites some of her closest people to the Bluebird, and sings for her mom, because that’s what she always dreamt for her daughter. The song is called “Nothing In This World Will Ever Break My Heart Again” and appears on the Music of Nashville: Season 1 Volume 2 soundtrack (purchase here). The song was written by Sarah Buxton (see video below). Here are the lyrics:

I finally kept my pride
And hailed a cab
Those cuttin words you said
Were the last stab
There’ll be no tears this time
They’ve all dried up
No more sweet poison
I already drank that cup
This tunnel’s dark
But there’s a little light glowing
Bright enough for me to run toward knowing

Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again
Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again
No pain this life will put me through
Will ever ever hurt like you

Don’t need a miracle
A superhero
There’s only one way up
When you’re at zero
You took my innocence
But it was knowing
No i don’t need you
And that made me a woman
I paid my dues
But that’s a debt i’m done paying
I’m standing strong
But I’m still on my knees praying

Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again
Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again
No pain this life will put me through
Will ever ever hurt like you
