Play Date
Melanie Martinez Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You call me on the telephone, you feel so far away
You tell me to come over, there's some games you wanna play
I'm walkin' to your house, nobody's home
Just me and you and you and me alone

We're just playin' hide and seek
It's gettin' hard to breathe under the sheets with you
I don't wanna play no games
I'm tired of always chasin', chasin' after you

I don't give a fuck about you anyways
Whoever said I gave a shit 'bout you?
You never share your toys or communicate
I guess I'm just a play date to you

Wake up in your bedroom and there's nothin' left to say
When I try to talk, you're always playin' board games
I wish I had monopoly over your mind
I wish I didn't care all the time

We're just playin' hide and seek
It's gettin' hard to breathe under the sheets with you
I don't wanna play no games
I'm tired of always chasin', chasin' after you

I don't give a fuck about you anyways
Whoever said I gave a shit 'bout you?
You never share your toys or communicate
I guess I'm just a play date to you

Ring around the Rosie
I never know, I never know what you need
Ring around the Rosie
I wanna give you, wanna give you what you need

I don't give a fuck about you anyways
Whoever said I gave a shit 'bout you?
You never share your toys or communicate
I guess I'm just a play date to you

You know I give a fuck about you everyday
Guess it's time that I tell you the truth
If I share my toys, will you let me stay?
Don't wanna leave this play date with you

Overall Meaning

"Play Date" by Melanie Martinez talks about a relationship where one partner is just using the other for their amusement. The song explores the dynamics of a one-sided relationship in which the partner who just wants to play games and have fun doesn't care about the feelings or needs of the other person. The lyrics suggest an insincere partner who neither communicates nor shares their emotions with their companion. The song's upbeat melody and playful lyrics create an ironic tone that emphasizes the sadness and loneliness experienced in the relationship.


The singer portrays a partner who is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the other person interested, but no matter how hard they try, they can't seem to create a genuine connection with the other person. The line "You never share your toys or communicate" emphasizes the disconnect in the relationship. Despite this, the singer is willing to continue to play along because they don't want to be alone. They wish they could have control over the other person, wishing they had "monopoly over your mind." The singer is aware of the emptiness of the relationship, but they continue to play along because they fear the uncertainty of loneliness.


Overall, "Play Date" is a confession of a person who is aware of being used by their partner but can't seem to let them go. The playful and ironic tone of the song contrasts with its sad theme, highlighting the complexity of the situation.
