"Good Girl"

For my next blog I wanted to take a song and compare it to Carlos and Kiara's relationship. After much searching, I found the perfect song. The song I chose was "Good Girl" by Carrie Underwood. The song is about a girl who is so smitten by a boy that she doesn't realize he isn't right for her. He's a typical bad boy and the song is trying to warn her that the boy is only going to break her heart. It's a very common thing for girls to fall for the "bad boy". There is something very mysterious and dangerous about the bad boy, but in the end you always end up with a broken heart. Maybe that's why girls are so drawn to the rebellious type, but we''ll never really know why. This song is to warn girls of the bad boys.

If this song would have been around for Kiara to listen to, maybe Carlos and Kiara would never have beame what they did. Kiara might have realized that Carlos wasn't the kind of guy she was looking for and that she was wasting her time. Even though by the end of the story Carlos changes and becomes the man Kiara needs, it doesn't start out that way. Carlos is involved in a gang and starts out in Colorado hanging out with the wrong crowd. Carlos even knows of the type of guy he is and warns Kiara. Kiara is so rapped up in their attraction that she doesn't care. The song says: 
Hey, good girl
You got a heart of gold
You want a white wedding
And a hand you can hold
Just like you should, girl
Like every good girl does
Want a fairytale ending, somebody to love.

Kiara is the typical good girl. She doesn't get into trouble, she's sweet, loves her family, always does her studies, and doesn't hang out with the wrong crowd. Then here comes Carlos and once Kiara falls for him, she wants the full relationship. The only problem is, Carlos doesn't want the same thing. He wants a girl he can hook up and not have any strings. The song also says, "better back away honey, you don't know where he's been". Carlos points out that he once had a very serious relationship and isn't a virgin, but now he only does meaningless hook ups. It's clear that Destiny, his ex-girlfriend, really damaged Carlos. He really cared for her but now he feels he is unworthy for any girl, especially Kiara. He has past damage that has caused him to be this way and after his several hook ups, no telling what he has done with who. Its much more safe is Kiara stays far far away. But of course that is impossible, because like I said, good girls love bad boys. 

Heres the link to the song lyrics,

Do you think there is a better song to represent what Kiara and Carlos are going through?
