The Dresden Dolls The Jeep Song Lyrics

Last updated: 06/24/2009 11:00:00 AM

I've been driving around town
With my head spinning around
Everywhere I look I see
Your '96 Jeep Cherokee

You're a bully and a clown
You made me cry and put me down
After all that I've been through
You'd think I'd hate the sight of you

But with every Jeep I see
My broken heart still skips a beat
I guess it's just my stupid luck
That all of Boston drives the same black fucking truck

It could be him or am I tripping
And I'm crashing into everything
And thinking about skipping town a while
Until these cars go out of style...

I try to see it in reverse
It makes the situation hundreds of times worse
When I wonder if it makes you want to cry
Every time you see a light blue Volvo driving by

So don't tell me if you're off to see the world
I know you won't get very far
Don't tell me if you get another girl baby
Just tell me if you get another car

It could be him... or am I tripping
It could be him...

The number of them is insane
Every exit's an ex-boyfriend memory lane
Every major street's a minor heart attack
I see a red Jeep and I want to paint it black

It could be him or am I tripping
And I'm crashing into everything
I can't wait till you trade the damn thing in
By then they will have put me in the looney bin

It could be him my heart is pounding
It's just no use, I'm surrounded
But one day I'll steal your car and switch the gears
And drive that Cherokee straight off its trail of tears

Anthem for the Broken-Hearted Female | Reviewer: Angelique | 6/24/09

For "Paint it Black," I don't think she was inspired by the Rolling Stones song but, since she saw all of the black trucks, she wanted the red ones to be black, too, so it could be a possibility of him driving by.
This song is, basically, my theme song.

My life. | Reviewer: -Me | 1/15/09

This is basically my life. I'm a car geek. I'm that guy you know who can name cars and rattle of a spec sheet when they see one. So every ex, every lost friend, every fucked up story I tell when we're drunk is translated into a car.

How do you get away from your own life if you see it following you?

Paint it Black | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/5/07

I love how this song has a line inspired by a rolling stones song. "I see a red jeep and i want it painted black" hahaha!

Amazing <3 | Reviewer: KiddiexGrinder | 5/27/07

I love this song because it depicts my feelings EXACTLY towards a certain ex-boyfriend of mine.
It's not the same car, but my last boyfriend and I used to drive around for hours, and now that we're not together, I see his car everywhere...

<3 Amanda Palmer is my hero

awesome song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/07

i agree with what you said, with one minor change, i think it sounds happy either because she's actually happy to see the car all the time, hoping that it is him comming back to her, or possibly for just for irony, idunno.

5 Stars | Reviewer: SapphireHaze | 7/27/06

I really love this song.

I guess it's about being haunted by thelove of your life, who's let you down. But she is being reminded everyday because everyone has the same car as him and he is still breaking her heart. But the song sounds kindof happy. I think this is because she'ssupposed to be high, trying to drown away her sorrow. She's talking aobut hiding away until of the popular car in Boston eventually goes out of style.
