Queen Of Hollywood lyrics

Thumbnail

Yeah-eh yeah yeah... Oh-oh Oh-oh
Yeah-eh-i-yeah... Yeah, yeah

She drove a long way through the night
From an urban neighbourhood
She left her mother with a fight
For a dream misunderstood
And her friends they talk on corners
They could never comprehend

But there was always something different
In the way she held a stare
And the pictures that she painted
Were of glamour and of flair
And her boyfriend though he loved her
Knew he couldn't quite fulfill
He could never meet her there

She's never gonna be like the one before
She read it in her stars that there's something more
No matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood (Queen of Hollywood)

And the cynics they will wonder
What's the difference with this dream
And the dreams of countless others
All believing in TV
They see their handprints in a sidewalk
Flashing cameras on the scene
And a shining limousine

She's never gonna be like the one before
She read it in her stars that there's something more
No matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood (Queen of Hollywood)

Yeah-eh - eh-eh-eh...
She's believing in a dream (Queen of Hollywood)
It's a loaded fantasy...
Yeah-eh-eh, yeah, yeah, yeah

Da-da-da, da-da-da
Da-da-da, da-da-da

Now her mother collects cut-outs
And the pictures make her smile
But if she saw behind the curtains
It could only make her cry
She's got hand prints on her body
Sad moonbeams in her eyes
Not so innocent a child

She's never gonna be like the one before
She read it in her stars that there's something more
No matter what it takes no matter how she breaks
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood (Queen of Hollywood)

No she's never gonna be like the one before
She read it in her stars that there's something more
No matter what it takes and even though she breaks
She'll be the Queen of Hollywood (Queen of Hollywood)

She's the Queen of Hollywood... yeah, yeah
Queen of Hollywood, (Queen of Hollywood)
And her friends still talk on corners
Yeah yeah, Oh oh, (Queen of Hollywood)
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah-eh Yeah-Yeah...Yeah, yeah
She's the Queen of Hollywood...
Queen of Hollywood, Yeah, yeah...

Song Details

Queen of Hollywood is about a powerful and successful Hollywood actress who is confident in her ability to control her life and career. However, deep down, she is unsure of herself and her relationships with others.

The lyrics highlight the contradictions of fame and the pressure to maintain a public persona while silently facing personal insecurities. She longs for a genuine connection with someone who will love her for who she is, rather than for her status or wealth.

The video clip features Marylin Monroe which leaves you pondering as to whether or not the song is about her, or simply that she is the epitomie of so many women that have experienced fame and fortune and the circumstances that they find themselves in because of it.

The song was a commercial success, reaching the top 10 on the Irish, Swedish, and UK singles charts, and receiving critical acclaim for its catchy melody and poignant lyrics.
