99 Cent Store Lyrics

I had pinwheels in my eyes for you
Blinded by the pinks and blues
Oh, you were my wind-up Romeo
We had matching bubblegum tattoos
Serenade me with your kazoo
You tricked me with your ribbons and your bows
It's so shiny in a shopping...

    i think this is about a boy she was in love with and met up with. "it‘s so shiny in the shopping cart" -> they just met up and everything is great.
    "pretty in a parking lot" -> they maybe sit down and talk, but...
    "but when you go home, that‘s when it falls apart" it turns out that this boy isn‘t good to/for her. as she‘s moving on from him she realizes it all were "cheap lies" he told her in their conversation. "i still think about you sometimes, only when i walk through the 99 cent store" i think this refers to her visiting/walking through the place they were at.

    I know people are saying this is an unreleased song but looking at the lyrics, I get the gyst of the meaning.
    So I think that it talks about the fact that people can be drawn into something, like a relationship, and it's all fine and dandy at first, but as it progresses things get worse and it isn't as nice "It's so shiny in a shopping cart
    Pretty in a parking lot
    But when you go home
    That's when it falls apart"

    This is an unreleased song but who cares go listen to The Bakery and All the Good Girls Go to Hell.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
