Being a huge Wes Anderson fan, Whitney absolutely wished she was in the movie Moonrise Kingdom, so instead of wishing, she made a song about it and Dear Ears made a mini version of that movie themselves. At 12 can be found on YouTube as our first music video ever sponsored by Vine back in June 2016.


I wish I fell in love you when I was 12
Run away from home
Find places to roam
Pack all the nonsense that only comforts me
My parents worry
We’re in a hurry
Go, go, go
I can’t believe that people actually care
We thought they didn’t
We thought they wouldn’t
I guess its best if we find an island
Dance to old records, songs you’ve never heard

This is what it’d be like if you fell in love with me at 12
It’d be so adventurous, we could get married as well

I’m glad not that many people understand me
Yeah so I’m different
It’s irrelevant
Not even you get why I do the things I do
Youre willing to learn
So now its my turn
If everyone decides to give up on you
You’ll know its not true
While they have no clue
Cause I will vow myself to you until I die
Who cares if we’re young
Don’t mind getting stung
By love
