"Trophy girlfriend"

ça c'est plus très jeune, ça date de 1995/1996 je crois, mes années étudiantes où beaucoup de choses passaient dans mes oreilles. Heavenly était un groupe de filles qui faisaient dans la poprock sucrée, "twee pop" ou "C86" comme on avait coutume d'appeler le genre... mais pour ce titre elles avaient monté les potards des amplis, et ça envoyait gentiment de la bûchette... même si on sent vraiment la veine "popinou" derrière la saturation.


"Granny dress, bleached hair
Always nicks her underwear
She's kissing boys and girls
Can't decide which she prefers

She pouts a lot
Tries to seem
Pensive and pretty
Just looks mean

Trying too hard to be what she wanted
Trying to look like she's a loser
Trying to act like all her dumb heroes
Trying to be a trophy girlfriend who
Could just win you

Eats a lot, then starves
Broke her birthday crisp in half
She often faints and while
She is out, you see her smile

She's holding back
So so proud
Sure to be noticed
In a crowd

Trying so hard to be what she wanted
Trying to look like she's a loser
Trying to act like all her dumb heroes
Trying to be a trophy girlfriend who
Could just win you

Holding back
So so proud
Sure to be noticed
In a crowd

Trying so hard to be what she wanted
Trying to look like she's a loser
Trying to act like all her dumb heroes
Trying to be a trophy girlfriend,
Trying so hard to be what she wanted
Trying to look like she's a loser
Trying to act like all her dumb heroes
Trying to be a trophy girlfriend,
Trying so hard to be what she wanted
Trying to look like she's a loser
Trying to act like all her dumb heroes
Trying to be a trophy girlfriend, ooh"
