"Queen Of Hollywood" as written by Glen Ballard, Dane Anthony Deviller, Sean Syed Hosein, Andrea Jane Corr, Caroline Corr, James Corr and Sharon Corr....
Yeah, yeah, oh, oh, yeah, yeah
She drove a long way through the night
From an urban neighborhood
She left her mother in 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 glamor 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

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 hand prints 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)

She's believing in a dream
It's a loaded fantasy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

La da da, la 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 is the queen of Hollywood
Queen of Hollywood (queen of Hollywood)
And her friends still talk on corners (queen of Hollywood)
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
She is the queen of Hollywood
You see the queen of Hollywood, yeah

    General CommentNot sure the inspiration they had to write this song but it my favourite Corrs song. I Love how the verses build up to tell a story flowing easily into the sweeping choruses

    General Commenti think it's about a small town girl who becomes a celebrity and how people start to reject her, out of jealousy or wanting to be gossips.

    General Commentthis song was inspired in a movie and it's about a girl pursuiting the dream of being a famous actress. But the Hollywood world it's not easy and she ends up doing things that she's not proud of, in order to get somewhere.
    "She's got hand prints on her body/ Not so innocent a child" - she has been used and she has done bad things.

    It's such a beautiful song. My favourite ever.
