lyrics

I dare you

she is 30 going on 9 skipping running wild
Mary-go-round on the playground
acting like a child
making play dates
brand new play mates sittin' in a tree
spinning round we all fall down
go home with bloody knees

i dare you
i double dare you.
go find somebody new
go find somebody new
i dare you
i double dare you.
go find somebody new
go find somebody new

careless as a child
all you do is play
i have grown too old
for this kind of game
selfish as a child
every single day
i would be a child to stay

she is 30 going on 13
cutest girl in school
she rebels, she raises hell
she's breaking all the rules
slamming doors
and screaming out
she wants to be alone
middle finger to the world
she runs away from home

i dare you
i double dare you
go find somebody new
go find somebody new
i dare you
i double dare you
go find somebody new
go find somebody new

careless as a child
all you do is play
i have growth too old
for these kinds of games
selfish as a child
every single day
i would be a child to stay

aging queers
reliving years
of adolescence
now we act like kids
but we're too old
to feign our innocence
boyish girls with pretty curls
do what they wanna do
trying on misogyny
and call it something new.

i dare you
i double dare you
go find somebody new
to play these games with you

i dare you
i double dare you
go find somebody new
go find somebody new
