She Looks So Perfect - 5 Seconds of Summer

www.last.fm
by Simon Cleary 

The Experience: She looks so perfect standing there - a work of art. Break away from this deadbeat town, from those who say we're too young. Do you believe in me - believe in us? Would you run away with me? All I really want is you!

Video: A deadbeat town (in 5 Seconds of Summer's Australia) breaks open into a wild party... undressing in any and every place. [I prefer the Lyric video. Didn't really see the point of watching a whole town of people in underwear.]


The meaning of 5 Seconds of Summer She Looks So Perfect is about who you want to be - who we want to be. They say we're too young to amount to anything... And we're stuck in a deadbeat town anyway. So what would you do if I showed up with a plane ticket and a shiny diamond ring? Would we break away, make a name for ourselves, build a life together? Do I have big dreams? [In the meantime, 5 Seconds of Summer content themselves with American Apparel underwear and being so down.] 

Ask Yourself: Will I disprove people who say I won't amount to anything? Have I got started on my big dreams?


LYRICS:
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Simmer down, simmer down
They say we're too young now to amount to anything else
But look around
We worked too damn hard for this just to give it up now
If you don't swim, you'll drown
But don't move, honey

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down
Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart
And I know now, that I'm so down

Hey, hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Let's get out, let's get out
'Cause this deadbeat town's only here just to keep us down
While I was out, I found myself alone just thinking
If I showed up with a plane ticket
And a shiny diamond ring with your name on it
Would you wanna run away too?
'Cause all I really want is you

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down
I made a mixtape straight out of '94
I've got your ripped skinny jeans lying on the floor
And I know now, that I'm so down

Hey, hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down
Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart
And I know now, that I'm so down

Hey, Hey!
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I'm so down (hey)
Your lipstick stain is a work of art (hey, hey)
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart (hey, hey)
And I know now, that I'm so down (hey, hey)

Hey
