Pink - Barbies Lyrics

Another day, another sin
Another day I'm late again
Oh, just like that my money's spent
Where did it all go?
Another night, another heart
Another one leaves in the dark
And I'm searching for my counterpart
Where did they all go?

And I lock every single door
And I look behind me even more
Now turned into someone that I swore
I would never be

I wish I could go back to playing barbies in my room
They never say that you gotta grow up, quite this soon
How fast things change, and now I'm here and all I wanna do
Is go back to playing barbies in my room

I see it on my father's face
Another line that comes with age
I know that time will have its way
Where did it all go?
They say that things were simple then
Although I don't remember when
I wanna know what happens next
Where do we all go?

And I lock every single door
And I look behind me even more
And now turned into someone that I swore I would never be

Oh, I wish I could go back to playing barbies in my room
They never say that you gotta grow up, quite this soon
How fast things change, and now I'm here and all I wanna do
Is go back to playing barbies in my room

Pink canopies and grass-stained knees
Putting fireflies in a jar
Getting home before it's dark
Scotch-taping posters on my wall
Rolling pixie sticks to smoke
Couldn't wait 'til I was older

But I wish I could go back to playing barbies in my room
They never say that you gotta grow up, quite this soon
How fast things change, and now I'm here and all I wanna do
Is go back to playing barbies in my room
Back to playing barbies in my...
I wish that I could go back
I wish that I could go back
I wish that I could go back
Back to playing barbies in my room

Pink Barbies Comments
  1. Pawprint hero's

    sometimes childhood trauma and abuse is easier when you are still a child. now that im older i know just how much of a shit hole my life was as a child but back then i was too busy playing alone with my toys. to me the abuse was normal and i never thought anything of it. it was almost easier to handle when it was happening then it is now when its not. the innocence for being almost too stupid to understand life is something i miss. this reminds me of how stupid i was for wanting to grow up and how i wish i could go back to not even knowing what was happening was wrong

  2. Lara Kaemmerling

  3. Songbyrd_Edits

    I sang this song for a solo at my choir concert last year! A lot of people cried, and I almost cried myself while performing it. It was one of the best moments of my life, and this song continues to be so special to me.

    I wish I had her voice range 😍😍😭😭 and this song makes me miss being 7 and playing barbies with my sister. It makes me happy and sad cauze this song reminds me of that memory and that makes me happy but is also makes me sad that my sister won't play with me anymore. I miss playing barbies in my room (with my sister)

  57. Olivia Sioannon

    Just saw Pink in concert, she threw herself from the stage and flew across the stadium doing backflips whilst singing xD

  58. Buffy Monday

    This woman is so surreal ... she seems to sing my life story in every album where I am in life... it's like our lives run parallel... it's such a blessing to have someone know what you are going through and to know you're not alone and give you hope again and courage to move forward and when to fight back!!! We are all winners and never alone.. Thanks to P!nk for singing what I feel but could never say.. Music is my outlet.. yes I too wish I could go back to the good old ken and Barbie days when I controlled Life and how the ending was determined with no mistakes and the perfect family...

  59. Naimo Home

    I love it

  60. Jonathon Miller

  63. Maggie williams

  64. Rafail

    This song is one of my favs in "Beautiful Trauma". I always think of life when i was younger and how i didn't need to feel stress and pressure from everyone like all the time, like everyday i would feel stressed about everything and having songs like this, always helps me understand that life isn't like that! Pink, your one of my inspriations!

  65. ласточка точка

    дуже гарно! <3 Приїжджайте в Україну з концертом. Ви нас надихаєете з 14-го року дуже. Ваші пісні та музика нас підтримують! <3

    César Cestoni

    Where? :O
    What was the secret?

    David Carnell

    Sorry, it is a secret, cannot give it away.

  72. Abbey Sharpe

    I actually love you so much. this song makes me cry, after your concert, I went home and cried because I wanted to touch you and sing for you or dance for you and just talk to you, I WISH I could meet you. I wish I could talk to you through the phone or texting. I WISH I could be your son/daughter or related to you or even a friend.

  91. Melon Mel

    Omg so beautiful

  92. C Mc

    They say that things where simple then although I don’t remember when. I wanna know what happens next where do we all go.. and I lock every single door and I look behind me even more and I’ve turned into someone I swore I’d never be...😢💔R.I.P. Tommy I miss your soul with me on earth

  93. C Mc

    I lost my big brother on March 7th to an overdose it haven’t even been 2 months this song i can’t say thank you enough for these lyrics I feel like if my soul could write a song right now this would be it. I have 3 older brothers my brother who passed away Tommy was the closet in age to me we where best friends. We grew up in a family that never said I love you. We didn’t like that so we changed it and would always tell each other that. I am thankful because he left me two beautiful nieces but the pain of his loss is so raw and unbearable right now. I needed this song I needed to feel like it was okay to feel this way and to cry hard alone for 4 mins felt good.

  94. ImplodingCringe

    *First Concert Ever* I Went To The Concert Yesterday And It Was My First Concert. My Friend Had Invited Me. I Got In The Seat And Music Was Playing And Then The Music Stopped And Everyone Was Cheering. The Curtains Dropped And P!nk Was There Singing. A Few Seconds Later I Sit There Crying Tears Of Joy I Was So Happy And Excited. P!nk Pointed Out A 6 Year Old Girl At Her First Concert And Sang Happy Birthday To A Girl Named Courtney???? P!nk Started Signing Stuff And Thought She Was Gonna Sign Someones Forehead. In The Back Up High Where I Was Some Girl Shouted Out "Sign My Tit!!!!" We Listened To Her Sing More. I Loved Her Presentation Supporting You No Matter Who You Are Her Story About Her Daughter (I Get To Kick A 6 Year Old's Ass!) I Squeezed The Death Out Of My Friend And Thanked Her A Million Times. We Got A Shirt ($45???? Still And Awesome Shirt Though) I Love P!nk So Much I Sang Every Song The Best I Could (Even Though At Points When I Could Hear My Voice It Sounded HORRIBLE) I Am Inspired By P!nk So Much! When It Came To So What (My Personal Favorite) I Stood Up And Sang (More Like Shouted) My Heart Out To The Song Holding Up The Rock Symbol. I Wanted To Bring A Sign Telling Her How Much I Loved Her But I Didn't. I Did Not Get Any Sleep That Night I Was To Excited With The Thoughts Of The Concert. I Was Talking To My Friend About How I Wanted To get My Hair Cut Like P!nk Over The Summer And She Said She Wanted To As Well. The Next Day I Go To School Wearing The Shirt And The Annoying Table Mate In Science That I HATE Said Whose P!nk? I Was Highly Offended And I Replied With "An Amazing Person And Singer." He Just Had To Search Her Up. (Of Course Though, Who Wouldn't Want To Search Her Up?) And When He Saw Her He Started Making Fun Of Her. He Called Her A Man Woman And Other Insulting Things And I Stood Up For Who I Loved! I Told Him That She Was Better Than He Would Ever Be. (Because She Is And Always Will Be) So Yeah. I Feel Like I'm Rambling Now. *Important Part Because This Is A Long Ass Paragraph So You Might Just Wanna Skip To Here* But P!nk I Love You Girl! You Go! You Are And Always WILL Be My Favorite Singer. And Because Of You And How Much You Inspire Me Someday Instead Of Sitting In The Back Seat Of A Concert I'm Going To Be On The Stage Performing And I'm Going To Be Able To Tell People About This Amazing Experience And How I First Got Inspired To Be A Singer/ Performer. <3

  95. Saralyn Todriff

    Pink you should come to San Luis Obispo area. you have made such a huge impacted in my life. you helped me through my teen years and fighting with not feel like I belonged or feeling wanted, you helped me though my 10 year abusive relation ship to my ex. I wish I could meet the woman who has changed my life in such a major way. I wish this song came out when I was younger but it means more to me now.... it is helping me through the loss of my father the only man who ever showed me how much I was loved and wanted.... thank you.

  96. Rafael Mörker

    Man, I only started to listen to P!nk's new album because this song was produced by The Struts and I'm so happy that I did. There's a lot of hidden bops. By the way, it's kinda funny that The Struts, who did this beautiful production with guitar, violins and etc also produced most of Tove Lo's songs like the very electronic Cool Girl.

  97. Reaper

    I love this song, and the best part about the Beautiful Trauma album, is that most of the songs remind me of something that has happened in my life beforehand
