This is the opening track from American rock band Paramore's third studio album, Brand New Eyes. Frontwoman Hayley Williams discussed this song about carving out a life for yourself with Kerrang! May 9, 2009: "One line goes, 'The truth never set me free, so I'll do it myself.' We're in a situation where we're still young and it's hard being the ones who are going out and doing something a little different to other people our age. Some friends are going to college and some are at home who are like, I don't know what I'm doing.' It's a case of where people expect things to fall into their lap. You have to take risks to find out what you want." Williams told Alternative Press the story of this song: "This was one of the first music demos I got [for Brand New Eyes] from Josh [Farro, guitar]. He recorded the guitars and put some fake drums to it, and I thought it wasn't going to work. Ha! He even wrote the melody for the tag at the end of the chorus - you know, the part where I say 'more' about a billion times. The original lyric was 'Whoa,' of course. (We like 'whoas' a lot.) The chorus came together in about five minutes, only I had no idea what it was about. It was just a bunch of words that came to me. A month later, when I finally got everything together for the verses, it ended up being about how I feel it takes a lot of risk to live fully." (Source Careful songfacts)

Careful - Paramore

I settle down
A twisted up frown
Disguised as a smile, well,
You would have never known
I had it all but not what I wanted
'Cause hope for me was a place uncharted
And overgrown

You'd make your way in
I'd resist you just like this
You can't tell me to feel
The truth never set me free
So I did it myself

You can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach a little
More
More
More
More, more

Open your eyes like I opened mine
It's only the real world
A life you will never know
Shifting your weight to throw off the pain
Well you can ignore it
But only for so long

You look like I did
You resist me just like this
You can't tell me to heal
And it hurts remembering how it felt to shut down

You can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach a little
More
More
More
More, More

The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
So I'll do it myself

You can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out
Can't be to careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won't come any closer
You've got to reach out
More
More
More
More, More
