For a couple of years now my sister and I have had a running joke that the song Downtown Girl by Hot Chelle Rae is about me. We laugh because while I am not a hooker as the song suggests, a lot of the qualities described I can relate to! If you don’t know already, I’m a REALLY typical extrovert. Depressed and dysfunctional, maybe, but extraverted all the same. So read the lyrics or take a listen, take a look into the life of Heather. And tell me what you think!
She’s a weekend beauty queen of the black like clubs wearing out the scene
Well I do love the weekends, but no, I don’t go to clubs.
You know her type, out all night
Yup, pretty much 🙂
Starry eyed for the dirty dream, always looking for the prince where the cash is king
Starry eyed? Yes. Dirty dream with a prince where the cash is king? I sure hope so not, although I think sometimes it comes out that way. But anyone who really hangs out with me know that money is the last thing I care about.
On the boulevard in a big black car, She’s everywhere you are
Well I’ve never been in a limo, or any sort of big black (fancy) car. Normally its an old car, trimet bus, or as of lately, me walking with my “homeless gypsy cart.” I am everywhere you are however 😉
I smell her sweet perfume making rounds around the room
I do hope I smell good as I make my “famous” rounds around the room 🙂
Cause she is a downtown girl a downtown girl
I LOVE downtown Portland. LOVE IT!!! PDX makes me feel ALIVE.
Her lips are red and those hips are turning heads
I have been rocking the red lipstick lately! I didn’t think I could pull it off but I love it! And as selfish as it sounds I love when heads turn when I walk through a room. This often happens when I am at a church service or a swing dance event! I’m always tearing through the room trying to find the people I love!
Living like a celebrity all the guys lined up and the drinks are free
I’m not sure if the song is saying the drinks are free for the guys or the girl. My drinks are NOT normally free, and I normally end up paying for everyone else too. But that is because I genuinely like to!
She’s knows she’s hot but that’s all she got
This line makes me cringe a bit. Half of the time I am convinced that I am an ugly skeleton, and the other half of the time a know I look damn good. Sometimes I feel both at the same time! That was be beautiful paradox of my Corpse Bride costume for Halloween and my musical, I got to be super-skinny, scary AND pretty!
BUT. The idea of that being “all [I’ve] got” is really scary. That is my nightmare. But I know that my looks is not all I’ve got. I have a sense of humor, a joyful personality, and of course…MY SAVIOR!
Everybody knows she’s on the move with her six inch heels and an attitude
I actually almost never wear heels. I say its because I’m too tall for heels, but its really that I just have a lot of short friends. And I’m a BIG klutz. But when I do wear heels, I do feel VERY sexy. And I’m actually really good at walking in them, and dancing for that matter. Hmmm…maybe I’ll wear heals today.
When I’m out and about…I DO have an attitude. It changes in nature, but I do.
To seal the deal she shoots to kill, but I’m not going down
This is another line I don’t understand. I can be intense, but I’m not going to kill anybody 😉
Likes the attention gets the attention her name is on the bathroom wall
I’m an extrovert; I do like attention. I can’t lie. And when I need it, I get it. But I’m trying to do it in the most mutually respectful way possible.
The party never over she’s always coming over even when the music stops
YES YES YES A MILLION YES! Most of the time, whenever a certain social event is over, I’m still ready for more. And really its because I have a hard time going from lots of friends and excitement to NO friends and excitement. I just have a really hard time making that switch. That is why after swing dancing or another event, I’m almost always trying to get people to go out to eat or at least carpool home. I love that “winding down” time almost more than the actual event. And when I don’t get that “winding down” time, I normally end up bawling my eyes out while driving myself home all by myself.
All the boys staring at the girls, staring at the boys
Its hard to admit, but sometimes I like it when the guys are staring at me and visa versa! And I think that is ok and healthy!
Staring at the downtown girls the downtown girls
