spring break Up. 1 comment


Before I begin I must say that I love Georgia boys, there is simply something about them that I can never put into words but they are, without a doubt, amazing. Despite this song I still love Georgia boys and Luke Bryan, but this song makes me quite angry.

Rock or Knock: Knock.

Song: Spring Break-Up

Artist: Luke Bryan

Lyrics:

It was the last night at the Holiday Inn

There was a fire on the beach

I was trying to talk to some other girl

And she was bird dogging me

I finally had enough

I pulled over to the side

Brushed her hair back and looked her straight in the eye

It was a spring break-up,

Baby don’t cry,

You ain’t from here and neither Am I

We gotta little drunk

And had a good time

It’s a Spring Break-up

Baby bye bye

Bye bye bye bye

Baby bye bye bye bye

No I don’t need your number

Don’t want to be your Facebook ‘Friend’

I hate to break it to ya

But you won’t ever see me again

If am a bad guy, well I don’t mean to be

But there’s a beach full of buddies

Acting just like me

Spring break-up,

Baby don’t cry,

You ain’t from here and neither Am I

I know we gotta little drunk

We had a good time

Now It’s a Spring Break-up

Baby bye bye

Bye bye to the night that we shared

The memories we made on that ol’ beach chair

So long to the beer in that kiss

Hope it don’t take you long to get over this…

Spring break-up,

Baby don’t cry,

You ain’t from here and neither Am I

I know we gotta little drunk

And had a good time

Now It’s a Spring Break-up

Spring break-up,

Baby don’t cry,

You ain’t from here and neither Am I

We gotta little drunk

We had a good time

Now It’s a Spring Break-up

Baby bye bye

I will give Luke Bryan this: this song is catchy, but that is all I will positively say about this song.  I hate the end of the first verse when he brushes her hair back and looks her straight in the eye, you just know something bad is coming!  I love to have my hair brushed out of my face by the man I love but when you couple one of my favorite things with the horrid lines that follow in the chorus I want to punch someone!  The repetative ‘bye bye’ doesn’t help things either, and I can’t help but feel like he is mocking her as he says goodbye over and over again.

Just say goodbye and be done, don’t rub it in and break our hearts and say that you don’t need our number, you don’t want to be facebook friends, etc., etc.  Maybe it was a spring break hook-up (a topic completely separate from this blog) but that doesn’t mean that our hearts don’t get involved.  We are women and we are highly relational, our hearts can’t help but get involved and invested and therefore broken when you turn out to be a jerk just like all of your buddies on the beach (as if their bad behavior makes yours okay).  If you didn’t want to see me again and we aren’t from the same place you could have been a man and not allowed/initiated the spring break hook-up in the first place and/or not been so drunk as to have a spring break hook-up.  All good things in moderation.

So yes, bye bye to the night that we shared, and trust me, it won’t take me long to get over a jerk like you anyway.  Thanks for nothing.  Avoid guys who think like this as though they have the plague and about 10 STDs, whether it is spring break, summer break or any given night at the bar.  They’ve got growin’ up to do, and lots of it.

    Okay, Here’s my thoughts:
    – They were both drunk one night, yada yada, stuff happened.
    -It’s a few months later, he’s on the beach talking to this girl that he really likes, but this girl he knows is staring at him! It’s making him and the other girl uncomfortable! He needed to end it, before it got started!
    -To me, the song sounds like she is alot younger than him (high school, early college, etc.) So, he was gentle, but when he’s saying he doesn’t want her number, or facebook, I feel it’s because she keeps nagging him, and when I picture it when listening, I see the girl Crying out waterfalls!
    -Therefore, he’s not trying to be a jerk, he says it himself, but he just doesn’t want to lead her on.
