I tried to get high, but you wanted me low Good things are happening, but happening slow It's some kind of mystery from long ago
I finally know who I'm supposed to be My mind was locked but I found the key Hope it don't all slip away from me
Hard times, fine lines Moments pass by and I cry Rewind, step behind It's hard to find the flipside
I can't stand when you tell me to get back If we're all free, why does it seem we can't just be?
I saw your reflection all over the news Your temperature's well past a hundred and two Put the guns away, or we'll all gonna lose
Stand by or take flight Eat or throw your peace pie Walk on, or be mine Moments fly by and I cry
I can't stand when you tell me to get back If we're all free, why does it seem we can't just be? I can't stand when you tell me to get back If we're all free, why does it seem we can't just be?

Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
A key line in "Africa" is "I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become," which is about drifting away from what you really want in life. Toto keyboard player David Paich, who wrote the song, felt his work was consuming him.
