Downtown - Lady Antebellum



The Experience:

Why don't you take me down town anymore? Little details. That's where friendships start to unravel. Details that wouldn't matter if you weren't friends. Details that hurt, when you suddenly realize that you're not cool anymore...

Music Video:
Dumped by her friends, Hillary Scott decides to get cool again... the hard way.

My Take:
One of the things we need most is friendship. That's why losing a friend hurts so much. When we do, there's always the temptation to do anything to get back in with our crowd.  But where do we draw the line? How much is "cool" really worth? Is it worth compromising who you are and what you believe in?

Ask Yourself:
Would a real friend dump you? Would a real friend want you to stop being who you are, just to get back "in"?  

LYRICS:


Well, all the parties on the streets are talking, store front mannequins sleeping in lights.
We used to smoke while we were jaywalking like it was your birthday every other saturday night.
Knew The bands so we never payed our cover.
Wrote our names on the bathroom tiles.
We never dressed to impress all the others,
They would let us in on a laid back kind of style.
But Boy you know it's been a while.

I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
I'm only counting on your cancellation,
When I should be countin' on you at my door.
Did you forget about how we went around,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
Ohhhhhhhh anymore.

I got some platforms sitting in the corner.
They wanna stroll on a city sidewalk.
I got a dress that'll show a little uhhh uh but you ain't getting uhh ohh if you don't come pick me up (damn),
Show me off (wow), you might be tired but I'm not!

And I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
I'm only counting on your cancellation,
When I should be countin' on you at my door.
Did you forget about how we went around,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.

I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
I'm only counting on your cancellation, when I should be countin' on you at my door.
Did you forget about how we went around,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
Ohhh anymore. Yeaaaaah don't know why you don't take me downtown,
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
I just don't get it
