Tegan And Sara – I Was Married lyrics

I married in the sun
(Tell me where, tell me where)
Against the stone of buildings built before
You and I were born
(Start again, start again)
And to my heart confusion rose against

The muscles fought so long
(Fought so long)
To control against the pull of one magnet
To another magnet, to another magnet

Now we look up in
(Tell me who, tell me who)
to the eyes of bullies breaking backs
They seem so very tough
(It's a lie, it's a lie)
They seem so very scared of us

I look into the mirror
(Look into)
For evil that just does not exist

I don't see what they see
(Tell them that, tell them that)
Try to control the pull of one magnet
To another magnet, to another magnet
To another magnet, to another

    This is clearly about marriage, specifically a marriage between two women. (Or two men, if you wish. Either way, it's a gay marriage.) It's about a woman who married another woman, who she'd known all her life and despite her confusion and initial resistance, she knew she was in love with this woman and that they were destined for each other.

    Now that they are married and open, they face people (homophobes, obviously) who bully and threaten them because of their love for one another. They call them evil, say their love is evil, but they don't see what they see; they don't see what's wrong with them and with their love.
