Declan McKenna – Daniel, You’re Still a Child Lyrics

Daniel, You’re Still a Child By Declan McKenna

Daniel, you did it
You made me cry
You spent 10 days in bed when I asked you why
And requested my whereabouts through tweets
Darling, why do you bury yourself in sheets?

The hope’s going like Christmas pies
But it’s never gonna stop you turning pink

Daniel, you know what you want to do

You’ve been acting quite strangely since 10 years old
And when you were 11
They said you ought to pray to high heaven you don’t get caught
Well Daniel, don’t worry
You won’t be missed
You’ll spend 10 years in prison to pay for this
Oh, is it all a plot?
Daniel, you’re still a child

You got a death wish, child
Four cans of pesticide to drink
4:30 Western Time
The boy’s been arrested

Daniel, please don’t run
