I Was Married

  • Sara Quin wrote this song while fantasizing about what it would be like if she were able to openly marry the person of her choosing. The first verse sets the scene while the second verse questions the reasons why people would oppose gay marriage. >>

  • Sydney from St. Louis, Molike daniel said its about gay marriage. she talks of those opposed to gay marriage as "trying to control the pull of one magnet to another magnet" the pull of the magnets being the love between her and her partner and more generally the love between all couples regardless of sexuality, gender, race, age, etc. also, she says, "i look into the mirror, for evil that just does not exist, i don't see what they see (tell them that tell them that)" and she is trying to show how she cant see the "wrong" or "evil" others (anti-gays) see in her because of her homosexuality. in the mirror she sees no difference between herself and anyone else in the world
