The glove compartment is inaccurately named And everybody knows it So I'm proposing a swift orderly change
'Cause behind its door, there's nothing to keep my fingers warm And all I find are souvenirs from better times Before the gleam of your taillights fading east To find yourself a better life
I was searching for some legal document As the rain beat down on the hood When I stumbled upon pictures I tried to forget And that's how this idea was drilled into my head
'Cause it's too important to stay the way it's been
There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade And now that it's gone, it's like it wasn't there at all And here I rest where disappointment and regret collide Lying awake at night
There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade And now that it's gone, it's like it wasn't there at all And here I rest where disappointment and regret collide Lying awake at night, up all night When I'm lying awake at night

Alex from San Marcos, TxIts definitely not about cheating, "there's no blame to how our love did slowly fade" if she cheated there would surely be blame.
Ellen from Rotorua, New ZealandI Love this song. "And there is no blame to how our love did slowly fade, and now that its gone its like it wasn't there at all" is just so pretty!
Nick from Okemos, Miive got to disagree with the thingy up there. this isnt about cheating at all. he just sees a picture of an old love and it hits him hard. its about that flood of memory and what happened about it.
Amanda from New York, NyI think the title fits perfectly with this song. Just like Gibbard always does he makes his audience put the puzzle pieces in his words and we stick them together. I love the way glues life to his lyrics as perfect as he does. The song is incredibly beautiful although it does seem to imply somewhat about cheating...
Benjamin from Monroe, Wait is not about cheating. are you guys retarded?
"When I stumbled upon Pictures I tried to forget"
if they we pictures of his ex cheating why would her keep them in the glove compartment? he would rip them up or burn them. duh.
Chelseanne from Alma, MoThis song made me cry....but I love it. I also think its about a past relationship...
Leah from Humboldt, Iaawesomely sweet song. i never really thought the name fit the song though...
Derek from Newark, DeI agree. The message I get, is someone finds pictures of themselves and someone from a past relationship in the glove box of their car. They are reminded of it, and are disappointed that there is still no reason that it had to end.
Natasha from Aurora, CoYeah, Kyle is incorrect. It's about a past relationship.
Molly from Amherst, MaThis song is not as difficult to decipher as some of DCFC's lyrics. It's about a relationship that is ALREADY over, and he comes across pictures of them in the past and it makes him relive those days. He is nostalgic and also regretful that the relationship has ended. This is not about cheating. "there's no blame for how our love did slowly fade"
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
