  • Sometimes I don't understand
    Why you want me to
    Sometimes it takes the right plan
    To get less confused
    Waiting for the moment but it's never right
    You lean over and whisper, "Baby, don't be shy"
    Take another minute, Cara, are you sure?
    Maybe I can be a mirror for your pleasure

    Shy under the weight of design
    Afraid and able
    Shy under the weight of design
    Afraid and able

    Diving under the sheets
    Under rainbow lights
    It was more like a cage
    We were forced to fight
    Remember when you gave me a vial of your blood?
    I hid it in my closet until I gave you up
    Sitting on a roof above our flooded city
    I know I shouldn't stare, but Cara, you're so pretty

    Shy under the weight of design
    Tame turning into the wild
    I see but don't recognize
    Afraid and able

    What would you have me say?
    God, it's a perfect save
    It took me thirty years and now I feel right
    How did we get this way?
    How did we get this way?
    How did we get this way?

    (Shy under the weight of design)
    (Tame turning into the wild)
    (I see but don't recognize)
    (Afraid and able) Writer/s: Kelcey Ayer, Matt Frazier, Nik Ewing, Ryan Hahn, Taylor Rice
