Melanie Martinez – Play Date lyrics
Verse 1
You call me on the telephone, you feel so far away
You tell me to come over there's some games you want to play
I'm walking to your house, nobody's home
It's me and you and you and me alone

(Pre chorus)
We're just playing hide and seek
It's getting hard to breathe under the sheets with you
I don't want to play no games
I'm tired of always chasing, chasing after you

(Chorus)
I don't give a fuck about you anyways
Whoever said I gave a shit about you?
You never share your toys or communicate
I guess I'm just a play date to you

Verse 2
Wake up in your bedroom and there's nothing left to say
When I try to talk you're always playing board games
I wish I had monopoly over your mind
I wish I didn't care all the time

(Pre chorus)
We're just playing hide and seek
It's getting hard to breathe under the sheets with you
I don't want to play no games
I'm tired of always chasing, chasing after you

(Chorus)
I don't give a fuck about you anyways
Whoever said I gave a shit about you?
You never share your toys or communicate
I guess I'm just a play date to you

(Bridge)
Ring around the rosy
I never know, I never know what you need
Ring around the rosy, I want to give you, want to give you
What you need

(Chorus)
I don't give a fuck about you anyways
Whoever said I gave a shit about you?
You never share your toys or communicate
I guess I'm just a play date to you

You know I give a fuck about you everyday
Guess it's time that I tell you the truth
If I share my toys, will you let me stay?
Don't want to leave this play date with you

    I feel like this song is about Melanie (or Crybaby) being in a relationship where the other person is distracted. Melanie has a good touch for using childish themes to hide adult themes. “Play date” is a good example. A play date is usually where two children (or more) will play with each other’s toys at each other’s houses. I’m this song I think that Crybaby is at her lover’s house and trying to play it serious in their relationship but the other person is distracted and not ready for it. When she talks about sharing her toys... that’s more of an adult thing... but what’s she says is that she acts like she doesn’t care because of her position but she really does. When she says “I don’t want to leave this play date with you” it’s her saying she wants to be in the relationship and she’ll do anything to save it. This song’s pretty dark in itself.... but it’s one of my friends favourite Melanie Martinez songs.... so I’d never really heard it until I let her choose the songs.... I’d never thought about it...

    In the end Melanie says that she was the one 'not sharing her toys' and since her character is a child I'm guessing her mom/dad could be coming to get her and she doesn't want to leave. This is my theory so it may not be what the last paragraph is.
