Playing House - Katy Perry

We can't keep playing house
With such a big world outside
How do we shut it out?
At a fork in the road
Should I stay or should I go?

I'll keep the cat
Leave a spare under the mat
If you need to crash one day

'Cause I know we swore forever
But it seems so far away
Don't you think we're just too young
To play these grown-up games?

'Cause you know me too well
It'd be like me lying to myself
But I'm so scared to be alone
And go back to sleeping with the lights on

'Cause I can be myself
A drunk or sober, fat pro-active poster
Wouldn't it be nice
If we were older?

'Cause I know we swore forever
But it seems so far away
Don't you think we're just too young
To play these grown up games?

Some days I wanna take my chances
And not live so modernized
One day I wanna be your Mrs.
But it's not yet quite right
No it's not yet quite right

So there go our future children's names
I put the rest of us in a box in the closet
That I cannot open
Without getting full,
Full of emotion
'Cause you know I loved you
You know I loved you
You know I loved you
Oh, you know I loved you
Oh, you know I loved you

'Cause I know we swore forever
But it seems so far away
Don't you think we're just too young to play?

Some days I wanna take my chances
And not live so modernized
One day I wanna be your Mrs.
But it's not yet quite right
No, it's not yet quite right
No, it's not yet quite right
