Drunk Girl - Chris Janson




The Experience: "That's how you know the difference between a boy and a man..." how you treat the woman in your life. Are you a man who is there to give yourself for her or boy who is there to get what you can from her?



Music video: The music video for Drunk Girl is both painful and beautiful as we see a young lady who grew up with an abusive father try to make her way in the world. She has never seen true love and thinks that abusive relationships are the norm and so in her own life she settles for guys who just want her for her body and who are coward enough to get her drunk and then have sex with her against her will. Finally she meets the hero of the video who challenges her to be better and turns down the chance to be like the rest of the guys. Instead he steps up and treats her as the priceless treasure she is, even if she does not know it yet.

The Meaning of Drunk Girl: "Take a drunk girl home, let her sleep all alone..." it would be easy to take advantage of her moment of weakness, but that is not what a true man would do. No, a true man will "leave her keys on the counter your number by her phone". She might have forgotten what she is worth, but that is when it is your turn to step up and remind her as you "pick up her life she threw on the floor, leave the hall light on walkout and lock the door".


Ask yourself: So, are you a man who is there to give yourself for her or boy who is there to get what you can from her?

Album: EVERYBODY (2018)

LYRICS:

Couple of cover charge stamps got her hand looking like a rainbow
In and out of every bar on a whim just like the wind blows
She's either a bachelorette or coming off a breakup
Take a drunk girl home

She's bouncing like a pinball
Singing every word she never knew
Dancing with her eyes closed like she's the only one in the room
Her hairs a perfect mess, falling out of that dress
Take a drunk girl home

Take a drunk girl home
Let her sleep all alone
Leave her keys on the counter your number by her phone
Pick up her life she threw on the floor
Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door
That's how she knows the difference between a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

You leave her drive for a dive
You get something bad to eat
They're singing closing time at that little bar across the street
Then two by two strangers and lovers headed for the covers hooking up
That TV in your two bedroom sounds turned off
Through the paper thin walls you can hear the neighbor's cigarette cough
There's a million things you could be doing, but there's one thing you're damn sure glad you did

Take a drunk girl home
Let her sleep all alone
Leave her keys on the counter your number by the phone
Pick up her life she threw on the floor
Leave the hall lights on walk out and lock the door
That's how you know the difference in a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

Took a drunk girl home
In the sober light of dawn
She left you a message she thanked you on the phone
Cause you picked up her life she threw on the floor
You left the hall lights on walked out and locked the door
That's how she knows the difference between a boy and man
Take a drunk girl home

You took a drunk girl home

Take a drunk girl home
