Training Wheels Lyrics

on Amazon Music

Riding down, riding down
My hand on your seat
The whole way round
I carry band-aids on me now
For when your soft hands hit the jagged ground
Wheels aren't even touching the ground
Scared to take them off but they're so worned out
Promise I...

    Her crush doesn't want to move on to the next step. Not because he doesn't like her, but he's afraid he's still not ready for this relationship and might fall hard. She promises she wouldn't break his heart, but he's unwilling to commit. And so she 'explodes' getting pissed and annoyed as it's not like she wants to marry him or anything too serious or frightning, she just wants to be with him.

    She is friends with someone but she really wants to be more than that. and she knows he's ready for the commitment because his "training wheels" aren't touching the ground which means he feels the same way but is scared to admit it. And since he's scared she's helping him along the way by carrying band aids for when he falls over and keeping her hand on his seat?

    I think it means that Crybaby want's to be more than friends with Johnny and "No more training wheels left for you" means pulling on the "rubber". This song is about wanting to do the deed

    I think that cry baby just wants to be more than friends but the boy feels the same way but he is just not ready to admit that he likes her to but he is not ready to take off his training wheels(metaphorically meaning he is not ready to be more than friends or he thinks he's not ready to be more than friends)

    Crybaby is ready for the next step of her and this boy's relationship but he's scared to take the training wheels off. She wants her relationship to be perfect and she wants him to take his 'training wheels' off. She cares, but she's ready for a higher level of love.

    I think this song means she realy wants it to thenext leavel. in the song she says i love every thing you do when you call me fucking dumb for the stupid shit i do so to me basicaly she likes how they joke around and how they already have a great relation ship. in the beginning of the song she says weels aren't even touching the ground scared to take them off but theyre so worn down she is saying that she knows he feels the same way. [this is my perspective]

    I'm pretty sure that crybaby wants to be more then friends with her best friend, but she doesn't know how, and in the boy's life he was having hard times, and Crybaby wants to comfort him.

    I think that by training wheels she means time. Cry baby is helping the boy take a risk and stop using "training wheels". The boy wants her to be there as she has "band-aids" and is willing to support him throughout, but Cry baby wants to be there so she can help him get through his difficult stage of learning how to ride a bike (like get his sh*t together) aswell as overcome that and ride bikes together hence "I wanna ride my bike with you" (to be in a relationship with him). They both wanted different things and as the boy has gotten what he wanted, he leaves her. Cry baby, once again gets screwed over (this is my interpretation).

    Crybaby want's to take a step away from who they already are so she unscrews his training wheels. He doesn't know Crybaby want's to be this way that's why he doesn't go to her party. Crybaby want's to tell him but she shows him instead which doesn't go very well that's why he disappears in the video.

    There's two things this could mean 1. Sex she thinks he's ready to have Sex with her so she's allowing him to take the "training wheels"off

    2. They are at a friend stage and she want to be more than that but he's staying on the training wheels witch is the friends zone and she wants to take the training wheels off and be more than friends

    I think this song is about Crybaby wanting to not just be friends with this guy. She wants to take the "trying wheels" off and go to the next step. She is falling hard for him not just as a friend, but as a lover. The message she is trying to send is that she wants to ask him out, but doesn't know how to say it since they are friends. She doesn't want it to come of "cheesy", so she insists to take his trying wheels off and try to become more than just friends.

    This song is without doubt a song of love she is clearly just friends with a person she actually really loves but she doesn't know how to say she loves him.this is where the part training wheels comes from.her and her friend are using "training wheels"to go slowly throughout their relationship but she secretly wants to go faster through it so she wants him to take his "training wheels" off
