about

"I wrote 'Shy Cry' at a time when I felt happiness was not attainable. I felt it was easier to be complacent than to be happy. My surroundings continued to prove and remind me that the 'straight' way was the easier way. I wrote this song as a cry for help to myself because when it came down to it, only I was in charge of my actions. Freedom was what I was constantly searching for. Freedom from myself. If it wasn't for this song and every other song on Unbuttoned's new album, I'm not sure when or how I would've gotten to the position I am today...if I knew then what I know now, decisions I have made in the past would likely be a lot different."
- Casey MQ

lyrics

It’s a holiday
Torn by the human light
Wrapped around my fingers
Peels away at night
I was once your friend
Carried all your fears
In my backpack
So they could disappear

Can I let out a sigh?
My arms and legs feel free now
Run wild now

Touch my… won’t you touch my
Shy cry… strip all of the lies down
Feel my… won’t you feel my
Shy cry… gonna run with the wolves now
Hold on… won’t you hold on
Shy cry… no this won’t be easy
We’re almost there… almost, somehow
Shy Cry… I’m running with wolves now

Hold out for the day
When you see the light
When you can touch gold
It will feel right
Life will never be
Something cursive and light
Coloured outside the lines
With drafts stacked high

Touch my… won’t you touch my
Shy cry… strip all of the lies down
Feel my… won’t you feel my
Shy cry… gonna run with the wolves now
Hold on… won’t you hold on
Shy cry… no this won’t be easy
We’re almost there… almost, somehow
Shy Cry… I’m running with wolves now

Can I just run wild?

I see him running wild
I see her running wild
Can we just run wild?

Can we just run wild
