Silverstein – True Romance lyrics

I'm not here to judge you,
I'm just here to tell you what you have done wrong.
Beautiful girl looking her best, takes off a towel,
Puts on a dress.
Fixes her hair to look good for someone.
Who waits in a car to go to a motel.
... To a motel.

I may not always be perfect.
But I'll always try.
Will you say your prayers, just to be honest with yourself?
Will you save your soul? Is this what you wanted all along?
Husband can't bear to just lie to himself.
Stock market falls and he loses it all,
He sleeps alone for the third time this week.
He's become numb, he just wants this to be over.
Wants this to be.

I may not always be perfect.
But I'll always try.
Will you say your prayers, just to be honest with yourself?
Will you save your soul? Is this what you wanted all along?

Blood on the floor.
What have you done?
Head in your hands.
What have you done?

I may not always be perfect.
But I'll always try.

[x4]
Will you say your prayers, just to be honest with yourself?
Will you save your soul? Is this what you wanted all along?

Beautiful girl sleeps by herself.
Half the bed's cold, she knows it's her fault.
She's given in and admitted defeat.
But she'll be fine.

    K well this song is about a girl who in the beginning is getting to go to a motel to meet this guy. Not so wrong right? Well, it turns out she's cheating on her husband. His life is crashing down around him; I guess he invested in the stock market, cause that falls and helps to ruin his life. Eventually he just wants it all to be over. Can you blame him? Well, I guess his wife kills him in the middle of the song. By the end, the girl is sleeping all by herself cause she doesn't have a husband anymore and she accepts that. She knows it's all her fault.

    I think that the story line is that the wife has an affair because she's unsatisfied in her marriage to the husband, whom is also unsatisfied and just generally depressed about life and work and love. The affair doesn't really mean anything to the wife, but the husband finds out and, in his depression, kills himself. So at the end she's alone but will be okay in the end, because her marriage was already loveless so the loss of her husband isn't that great.

    The song is about sin and redemption. The wife (protagonist) has sinned because instead of being faithful to her husband she become involved in an affair with an unknown man. She does this because she is searching for a "true" inner love that she doesn't find in her marriage or affair (hence because "she is fine" at the end of the song after the affair and marriage). By finding this new love she brings about her redemption and she is more "functional".
    The husband (antagonist) tries to regain some control in his life since he can't control the stock market he turns to his wife's affair. The husband has fallen because ("he wants this to be over") has murdered his wife's lover. I can't say if he ever redeems himself because he is no longer mentioned in the song.
    Therefore I believe this song is about learning to love oneself so we don't hurt ourselves and our loved ones. (didn't think this was religious, just if you think about it this way a lot of stuff makes sense.)
