Barbies

Written by Pink, Julia Michaels, Ross Golan, Ludvig Soderberg, Jakob Jerlstrom


Another day another sin
Another day I’m late again
Oh, just like that my money’s spent
Where did it all go

Another night another heart
Another one leaves in the dark
And I’m searching for my counterpart
Where did they all go

And I lock every single door
And I look behind me even more
Now I’ve turned into someone that I swore
I would never be

CHORUS
I wish I could go back to playing Barbies in my room
They never say that you gotta grow up quite this soon
How fast things change
And now I’m here and all I wanna do
Is go back to playing Barbies in my room

I see it on my father’s face
Another line that comes with age
I know that time will have its way
Where did it all go

They say that things were simple then
Although I don’t remember when
I wanna know what happens next
Where do we all go

And I lock every single door
And I look behind me even more
Turned into someone that I swore I’d never be

CHORUS

Pink canopies and grass-stained knees
Putting fireflies in a jar
Getting home before it’s dark
Scotch-taping posters on my wall
Rolling pixie sticks to smoke
Couldn’t wait ’til I was older

CHORUS

Back to playing Barbies
I wish that I could go back
I wish that I could go back
I wish that I could go back
Back to playing Barbies in my room
