Childish

Don’t make a sour face eating lemons
I like the bitter taste on my tongue
Ignore what doctor say about corrosion
Any ting’s better than being numb

Chewing bubble gum for hours
My jaw is sore, the flavor’s expired
My pockets filled with empty minty wrappers
But I can’t seem to spit it out

What do I do now
I feel childish how
Elementary you make me, like kids love’s a daydream
Kiss me on this playground

Punished if I misbehave
Mama, she say issa phase
Throw a fit if I get caught
But temper tantrums don’t look hot

Fool me once but don’t fool me twice
Loves a game but I roll the dice
My one and only don’t reply
Dontcha be playin’ me babe, just play nice

What do I do now
I feel childish how
Elementary you make me, like kids love’s a daydream
Kiss me on this playground

Loving you tasted oh so sweet
Now I’m only eating in my dreams
I know its petty, but u can’t blame me
For starving playing hide 'n seek
Loving you tasted oh so sweet
Now I’m only eating in my dreams
It’s pretty petty, but u can’t blame me
For starving playing hide ’n seek
So baby tell me…

What do I do now
I can’t figure it out
Why my brain’s made of daisies, my headspace is hazey
I’m just thinking out loud
What do I do now
I feel childish how
Elementary you make me, like kids love’s a daydream
Kiss me on this playground

Artist Statement

"Childish" is a song I wrote my freshman year of college. Inspired by Billie Eilish's song "Bellyache". I am so very proud of this project. It's my debut single as an independent artist and I hope y'all love it as much as I do. :)
