She's got a bumper like a billboard
Covered in stickers of her favorita band
She's got a hangful of records that she turns to
When she needs to land
She's a saturday night parade through the streets
That all eyes some to see including me

She carries memories around like souvenirs down in her pockets
She should have let some go by now but can't seem to drop it
Says forgiveness ain't nothing but a lifeless tire on the shoulder of her soul
That never rolls

For as much as she stumbled she's runnin'
For as much as she runs she's still here
Always hoping to find something quicker than heaven
To make the damage of her days disappear
Just like Guinevere


She don't hold onto nothin' new for very long
Yeah she writes you in as just one more tale
and then you're gone
'Cause she once fell hard 'cause she dropped her guard
And no one gets to stay it's just too late

For as much as she stumbled she's runnin'
For as much as she runs she's still here
Always hoping to find something quicker than heaven
To make the damage of her days disappear
Just like Guinevere


For as much as she stumbled she's runnin'
For as much as she runs she's still here

For as much as she stumbled she's runnin'
For as much as she runs she's still here
Always hoping to find something quicker than heaven
To make the damage of her days disappear
Just like Guinevere
Just like Guinevere

Lean into me Guinevere
Be mine tonight Guinevere

    My InterpretationIn this song he is singing about a girl has a passion for music. She uses music as an escape when she needs it and to cope with the scars of her past. Through music she found herself again. Others sees her a smart, kind,talented and inspiring. She find joy in helping someone out of their own darkness.Although she has found a way to live with her past, she still hasn't master the part of letting go. She hangs on to resentments to gaits her heart from being hurt again. Her biggest fear is falling in love, she has no desire for what's so ever. The problem is, she easy to fall for when you get to know her. She finds this as her curse. That's why don't hold onto nothing new for very long. Once they start to fall in love she runs away, no goodbyes just good memories. He is singing to her to give into him and let him love her. Fact is, out of this whole story the only sad part is the guy singing is wasting his time. Her spirit is free, she's happy again and she chooses not to fall in love. Unlike most people, falling in love she no longer desire in her heart. That's who she is now and no one will change that.

    General CommentGuinevere has been portrayed as everything from a weak and opportunistic traitor to a fatally flawed but noble and virtuous gentlewoman.
    that's what the girl in the song is supposed to be portrayed as too
    that's what the singer is trying to say about the girl that he likes. she's run away from him because she doesn't want to hurt him (as guinevere hurt king arthur) but he still wants her even if she keeps running to lancelot(the guy she cheated on king arthur with)
    amazing song

    Song MeaningThis song isnt neccessarily about the historical figure Guinevere, but the song is using her as a basis for their comparison of the girl in the song that the singer loves. She runs to escape the hurt-filled past she created, but she remains still, stuck there because she knows she is the only one who can fix it. just as guinevere messed up her life with King Arthur. The song uses records for her to turn back to when she needs to land, basically saying she looks to the past to bring her back to reality because even though you run, the past never leaves you and just like that song stuck in your head, its hard to get away from. In my opinion, I LOVE THIS SONG. HAHAHAHA

    General CommentIt's about a girl who has been betrayed one too many times and so never trusts again. As a result she keeps on going round and round in circles never going anywhere. Sounds like too many people I know.

    General CommentTo me the song sounds like it is about a girl that the singer is fond of, she's well liked by everyone. She carries around the guilt and such things from the past, even though she doesn't need to. And she wants to get away from all of her problems, but she continues to stay in place. At first, not thinking the lyrics through, I thought possibly Guinevere was a friend of hers who had done away with herself, 'always looking to find something quicker than heaven to make the damage of her days disappear, just like Guinevere,' sounds quite like she is contemplating suicide. I may be completely wrong (!!!), but that's what the lyrics sounds like to me.
