Dare Dare Double Dare


How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
From here to leave,
When you are right at the door.

How could you,
Dare dare double dare,
Daring to go?
From me to leave,
Like the daring that you do...
Is on an errand.

How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?

Baby don't you think you could,
Understand it closer to me?
If we got ourselves together.
And...
Baby don't you think you could,
Stop to think...
Why,
We don't touch and cuddle like we should.
And could.
But don't!
Or wont even try.

Baby don't you think you could,
Understand it closer to me?
If we got ourselves together.
And...
Baby don't you think you could,
Stop to think...
Why,
We don't touch and cuddle like we should.
And could.
But don't!
Or wont even try.

My eyes have opened up so wide to see,
To believe...
You've got another lover under cover.
You've got another lover under cover.
Is that why you threaten me,
To go?
And you throw it in my face,
To know...
You've got yourself another secret lover.

And baby don't you think you could,
Stop to think...
Why,
My eyes have opened up so wide to see...
To believe,
You've got yourself involved with someone other.
Under cover.
Yes you've got yourself involved with someone other.
Under cover.

How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
But don't.

How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
When I know...
You've got yourself another secret lover.

Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
When I know,
'That' I know.

How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
When I know,
'That' I know.

How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
When I know.
How could you,
Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
When I know.
'What' I know
To be known....
Like the daring that you do is not apparent.

Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
Like the daring that you do is not apparent.

Dare dare double dare...
Daring to go?
Like the daring that you do is not apparent.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
