in a pretty car you're the star
see you fall in all the bars
when we're apart it hurts
my heart
in a pretty car you're the star

like a dagger through
your heart
another dagger through
your heart
drive away in your
pretty car

    My InterpretationI think this song is referring to watching a loved one get arrested. I could be wrong, but hey, it makes sense.

    The lines "in a pretty car you're the star//see you fall in all the bars" seems to be referring to a police car, as they do in fact have bars on them. In addition, this isn't just an ordinary car, but a pretty car. Police cars are not ordinary cars and are distinctly noticeable, just like something that is "pretty."

    "When we're apart it hurts my heart" is the moment where the narrator is watching his/her significant other being driven away.

    Then, of course, "like a dagger through your heart..." details the emotional impact of the moment.

    General CommentHmm, I had my own interpretation of this song being about a rich person taking advantage of their money, buying their "pretty car," causing trouble. I must say that sevenpeefive's interpretation isn't bad, though.
