Discussion in 'DEVELOPING CHARACTERS & CULTURES' started by Minibit, Mar 19, 2015.

  1. Welcome to Song Girls! this is a series of challenges wherein you create characters based on the ladies from songs with lady name titles!

    We're starting Canadian and using a Trooper song for installment number one: Janine

    Lyrics (open)

    She's sitting on the corner of her bed
    In a small rented room in Montreal
    Long curly hair, hands between her knees
    With her head hung down
    She hasn't said a word since morning
    I don't understand
    She usually talks like a little bird
    Today she hasn't made a sound
    Janine, Janine, talk to me, Janine
    Don't even know if she's listening to me
    I might be talking to myself hopelessly
    While she looks right through me
    Like I'm not even here
    If only there were something I could say
    To make her believe it's going to be okay
    And there's just no way
    She'll ever have to live alone
    Janine, Janine, believe in me, Janine...
    Janine, don't you see that it doesn't really matter
    What anybody says, what anybody does
    I'll still love you
    I'll still love you
    And if the world's getting harder and harder
    To understand
    And you need a hand
    I'll be there when you need me
    I'm going to be there when you need me
    Janine, Janine, you're not alone, Janine


    Think about:

    Why does she stay silent?
    What is her relation with the singer?
    What brought her to the hotel in Montreal?
