Alisha's Attic - Dare You To Kill Me Lyrics




Free spirited young man
Why did you have to grow
From a sparky little jewel
Into something so pointed and cold
Cold feet
And then I do a runner
I couldn't breathe
Coz you had the power
And I feeled sorry for you
Coz you don't bother me
And coz I'm in control now
I Dare You To Kill Me
I've erased all your twisted ways
From my memory
And coz I'm in control now
I dare you, I dare you
You're gonna have to kill me

(oooooo, oooooo
oooooo, oooooh)

I could forgive you
But then I would say that, wouldn't I
I wasn't jaded back then
And I still had a twinkle in my eye
But funny how it is with a hand around your neck
And a pounding in your chest
What thoughts you have..
"I haven't been to India yet"

And I feeled sorry for you
Coz you don't bother me
And coz I'm in control now
I Dare You To Kill Me
I've erased all your twisted ways
From my memory
And coz I'm in control now
I dare you, I dare you
You're gonna have to..

I haven't been to India yet, no no
I haven't been to India yet

Free spirited young man
Why did you have to grow
From a sparky little jewel
Into something so pointed and cold
Cold feet
They took me on a runner
And now I can breathe
Coz I have the power..

And I feeled sorry for you
Coz you don't bother me
And coz I'm in control now
I dared you to kill me
I've erased all your twisted ways
From my memory
And coz I'm in control now
I dare you, I dare you
You're gonna have to kill me

  1. imad7x

    I listened to this song because Rosie Emily once listened to it on a radio then got a job.


    She replied to a reply of a comment on a post-

    "I’m pretty certain my entire life’s events from when I was 18 to now, can all be traced back to hearing one song on the radio when I was a teenager. Basically I heard a song on the radio, became an instant fan, joined an online forum of other fans, met up with one of them to go to a concert, we became friends and he got me a job in the company I worked at when i met my current husband. Now we’ve been going out almost a decade, married for three years and have two children!

    Edit: since some are asking, it was a band called The Dum Dums who had a pretty small but loyal following in the UK for a couple of years in the early naughties. This was the song: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mInErFA2z6I&feature=youtu.be"

  2. K G Bailey

  6. Michael Nash

  7. Toxic Thor

    Indie... Boyband ?? I remember this. Got alot of airplay at the time. Listening now it makes Third Eye Blind sound tolerable... Having said that, if this was mainstream pop 13 years ago then pop has got a whole lot worse.

  8. potatopotatopotato

    Josh Doyle!!!!

  9. hobsholelane

    i used to see steve and the other lads at church

  10. Just Me

    I am busting a gutt-- iow, LOLing...it's good , clean and fun .

  11. Richard Wyatt

    Dum Dums were a proper band but were marketed as a boy band by their record label. I remember them really resenting this (article in Melody Maker etc). Their live shows were a lot rawer in sound compared to their studio recording, which was overt polished.

  12. eaachh

    Really love the band.

  13. khwalt2

    @billydeeuk Ahh, no...

  14. Christopher Churchill

    the singer doyle just released his latest ep just google josh doyle bandcamp or add him on facebook

  15. Jeoff Harris

    @billydeeuk Josh - Lead Singer is actually living in Nashville right now with his wife and kids doing the solo artist gig. The other guys are still in england to my knowledge.

  16. Sim M

  22. wtfuchattin

    HOLY SHIT I FUCKING LOVED THIS SONG!

  23. Esmé Foster

    Wow this song brings back memories lol

  24. jeffdestroyer84

    I dont think u can be a boyband if the lyrics to ur song is "So what if I want to be a virgin and not do pills
    Or felonies, I don't want to go to jail,
    I don't want to go to jail
    And get butt-raped by an ape, by mistake
    On our first date and catch aids"

  25. billydeeuk

    If you look "boyband" up in Oxford English Dictonary & Encyclopedia it describes boy band as "a type of group playing popular music featuring several young male singers. One could label a band a "boy band" for following mainstream music trends, changing their appearances to adapt to new fashion trends, having elaborate dancers, and performing elaborate shows." The last two dont apply, but DumDums were marketed to tap into pop-rocks increasing popularity. They are a boyband same as McFly & Busted

  26. mikey porto

    #1 made me laugh. metallica is made up of boys. do you call them a "boyband"?

    nsync, bsb are boybands. it's how they were marketed.

  27. billydeeuk

    They're a boyband, just like McFly and Busted were a boyband.

  28. billydeeuk

    They've split up now. The lead singer, from what I can gather, spends all his spare time updating their MySpace page, but other than that, I'm not sure

  29. billydeeuk

    1. They are a band made up of boys
    2. According to their official website, the band were formed in 1997 and released their debut LP in 1999.

  30. Annemarie Cabble

  31. Bensam Films

    these guys were great. i just heard them for the first time in years today in work. what happened to them?

  32. David Ellis

    They were amazin, Lead singer josh was hard core rock and roll, Billy sort it out m8!
