  • You think you're denying me of something
    Well I've got plenty
    You're the one who's missing out
    But you won't notice

    'Til after five years
    If you'll live that long
    You'll wake up
    All loveless

    I dare you
    To take me on
    I dare you
    To show me your palms

    I'm so bored with cowards
    That say they want
    Then they can't handle

    You can't handle love
    You can't handle love
    You just can't handle

    I dare you
    To take me on
    I dare you
    To show me your palms

    What's so scary
    Not a threat in sight
    You just can't handle
    You can't handle love

    You can't handle love, baby
    You can't handle love
    It's obvious
    You can't handle

    I dare you
    To take me on
    I dare you
    To show me your palms

    I'm so bored of cowards
    That say they want
    Then they can't handle

    You can't handle love, baby
    You can't handle love
    It's obvious
    You can't handle

    I dare you, I dare you
    I dare you, I dare you Writer/s: Björk Gudmundsdottir
