"Hollywood Girl" as written by John Hutchinson Dean, Christopher Gentry, Simon Ian White, Matthew Everitt and Stuart Black....
A danish and coffee to take away
By cab I'm only minutes away
From breakfast at tiffany's
A place I feel so much at ease

The man upstairs is trying to sleep
He wants to take some photos of me
In my birthday suit
It's driving him through the roof

Hollywood girl on the fire escape
Don't you wait ''cause it's getting too late

She took a roman holiday
She needs a place to hideaway
Escape the masquerade
Miss go lightly's rent is paid
Moon river wider than a mile
Sometimes live is such a trial
On the silver screen
Nothing left to do but dream

Hollywood girl on the fire escape
Don't you wait ''cause it's getting too late

Hollywood girl on the fire escape
Don't you wait ''cause it's getting too late

Hollywood girl on the fire escape
Don't you wait ''cause it's getting too late

    General CommentObviously inspired by the Truman Capote short-story turned movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and the Holly Golightly character. I think the song mimics what the story is about - spending a lifetime chasing after something or someone that exists only in your mind, instead of seeing the opportunities for happiness that are right in front of you. In the end you discover that you'll never find what was in your mind, because the real world and real people are filled with imperfections that you never drempt of.
