Death of an Interior Decorator Lyrics

You were the mother of three girls so sweet
Who stormed through your turnstile
And climbed to the street
But after conception your body lay cold
And withered through autumn and you found yourself old

Can you tell me why you have been so...

    Man and woman marry and have three children all girls. Man doesn't love his wife and only touches her to procreate. He cheats taking his lover to an island as she (the woman)plans the wedding of one or more of their children. It does sort of sound like she committed suicide or either was severely depressed since they keep asking why are you so sad. The lover could be male since he has no interest in the wife besides making babies. I don't really know. I love the song

    It's taken direectly from the plot of Woody Allen's film 'Interiors'.

    I somehow came to the conclusion that this woman had her three kids, at which point she died. then she got to watch her husband remarry.
    either that, or she was alive when he left her and remmarried, and then she suicided.
