Local Natives - Shy Lyrics


Sometimes I don’t understand
Why you want me to
Sometimes it takes the right plan
To get less confused
Went for a moment but it’s never right
You lean over and whisper, «Baby, don’t be shy»
Take another minute, Carla, 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 a flooded city
I know I shouldn’t stare, Carla, but you’re so pretty

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

Shy
Shy
What would you have me say
God, it’s a perfect safe
It’s been 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 wine)
(I see but don’t recognize)
(Afraid and able)
