Show You Lyrics
You're way too short to get on this ride
No I'm not, no I'm not, they're tryna tell me that I
I gotta be home when the street lights glow?
You can’t watch your TV show
I will watch what I wanna watch

I think it means that I will not listen to anyone but me and no matter what you do I will fix it

Show you is pretty much a song about saying I'm not a little kid anymore, and if I need to show you, I will. it says The first verse says "You can’t walk the streets at night, You're way too short to get on this ride" and "I gotta be home when the street lights glow? You can’t watch your TV show" and then it goes on to saying he doesn't care, he'll do what he wants to do, and if he needs to show you, he will.

To me this song is about showing you that you can do anything no matter what anyone else says or thinks because you not anyone else so you should do what you want to do. Also in the third vires it says "you really want to see me now, watch me walk across the clouds." because he got to were he is by doing was he wanted and following his dreams.

I think that it means if someone tells you something and you don't have the same beliefs that you should prove them wrong. Or tell them this is what I believe and u can't change that. Or tell them I'm old enough to do what I want. That's what I think it means.

It means no one owns you. Do what u think is best, have fun, look good while you're doing it and be confident in yourself.

I think it also means to have confidence, and stand up for what you believe in.

I think this song means you need to take action. if know one listens or thinks your lying you need to stand up and prove yourself.

I think the song is about showing people what you can do by yourself. You're saying that you can handle stuffs on your own and you'll show them if you have to.
