Training Wheels Lyrics

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...

    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 that she means trying to go to the next step.

    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
