Chinese Satellite Love

— 1 minute read

I love this verse in Phoebe Bridgers' song, Chinese Satellite, from her 2020 album Punisher:

You were screaming at the Evangelicals
They were screaming right back from what I remember
When you said I will never be your vegetable
Because I think when you're gone it's forever
But you know I'd stand on the corner
Embarrassed with a picket sign
If it meant I would see you
When I die

True love is being willing to join an evangelical religion in the hopes that you'll get to spend eternity together.
