99 Cent Store Lyrics
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...
anonymous Mar 20th 2021 report
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"
