​Parking Lots

This song is by The Juliana Hatfield Three and appears on the album Whatever, My Love (2015).

Original video
They cut you open to get at your heart
Sounds like a metaphor for something but it's not
Like a bad memory lodged in your mind
With your eyes taped shut, a metaphor for blind
When you were coming out, roads were closing up
Fugitive kindness and love like raindrops
It was so much more than the physical

Don't break down till you get to the parking lot
Keep it together until you're in your car
Betrayed by the promise of a child
That took away half your smile
This is not where you thought you'd ever be
When you finally made the move to leave
So many questions still remain
So many metaphors for pain

They cut you open to get at your heart
Sounds like a metaphor for something but it's not
Like a bad memory lodged in your mind
With your eyes taped shut, a metaphor for blind
When you were coming out, roads were closing up
Fugitive kindness and love just like raindrops
It was so much more than the physical

Don't break down till you get to the parking lot
Keep it together till you're safe in your car
Betrayed by the promise of a child
That took away half your smile
This is not where you thought you'd ever be
When you finally made the move to leave
So many questions still remain
So many metaphors for pain

Don't break down till you get to the parking lot
Keep it together till you're in your car
Betrayed by the promise of a child
That took away half your smile
This is not where you thought you'd ever be
When you finally made the move to leave
So many questions still remain
So many metaphors for pain
