Taylor Lyrics

They say Taylor was a good girl, never one to be late
complain, express ideas in her brain.
Working on the night shift, passing out the tickets,
You're gonna have to pay her if you want to park here.

Well mommy's little dancer is quite a...

    I think the most over looked thing is the whole thing with Sunny's silhouette. I don't think that sunny is a person but is instead symbolic for heaven. Heaven won't let him in because he has been with Taylor. The break lights are on means that his journey to heaven is being stopped because of his visits with Taylor. singing on Sunday is an obvious reference to church. He thinks that going to church will alow him to get to heaven even though he is with taylor. Last thing is that Hawaii is 2000 miles from the mainland u.s, so he is probably referring to Hawaii as where she is imagining herself.

    I always thought she was a hooker, "mommy's little dancer is quite a little secret, working on the streets now, never gonna keep it"

    But I like #2's version much better. Except, what does verse three have to do with any of this? I don't think that #2 quite has the ending right...

    I don't think it's her dance performances...."you're gonna have to pay here if you wanna park here." Parking lot in the city? That's what I thought, anyways.....

    He talks about Taylor, who looks bad, is a hooker, but really is a nice person.
    Then he talks about a guy who looks good, goes to church every Sunday-who's not going to heaven.
