Just My Imagination Lyrics
We would hit the town on Friday night
And stay in bed until Sunday
We used to be so free
We were living for the love we had and
Living not for reality
It was just my imagination [x3]
There was a time I...

I like to think this song is about a short and intense relationship that ended abruptly, but the singer keeps imagining that love and she still does the same things but without that person.

This is about a woman who is imagining she is married and has children and thinking of the consequences of her getting married and her preference of staying with her husband in bed during Sunday mornings. If she wanted to be free and without any care for her children, she should have discussed with her husband that they don't want to have kids.
However, is having kids while being married a loss of freedom? It seems she has no love for her kids. She should have used protection every time she makes love with her husband. Kids are to be loved and they are a blessing.
As per Dolores O'Riordan herself at the introduction of the song from the 2010 concert in Paris, the song is about life before having children, then when having children, and concluding when the children have grown and gone.
As she put it, having to go to the park instead of going to the bar. Freedom, the loss of Freedom, and regaining Freedom.
The song is generally about escapism, with shades of one who've lost faith in Christianity and all of hte born-again stuff -- reminds of that song byu the Christian group JARS OF CLAY's "5 Candles" song (also check THE OFFSPRING's "So Far Away", and Michael W. Smith's "Place In This World")), which rings quite surreal to a realists perspective about life, God, and the world in general - similar to the book of Ecclesiates found in the Bible itself and was acknowledged by Christ himself as found within one of the scriptures' gospel record passages.
