Demi Lovato Wiki
This is a song about wanting to be loved—but wanting it to be done carefully. It’s kind of self-explanatory, but it’s really about offering yourself up to somebody. One of my favorite lyrics in the song is ‘I could be your favorite dream/Baby, nobody can love you like I do.’ It’s so simple but it’s powerful, and I don’t have a favorite dream, so it’d be nice to find that.”
Demi on Carefully

"Carefully" is the eleventh track from Demi Lovato's seventh studio album, Dancing With The Devil... The Art Of Starting Over. It was released on April 2, 2021 through Island Records.

Background

“Carefully” is a mid-tempo pop song where Demi warns her partner of all her faults and asks them to “handle her carefully,” saying the relationship could be a “favorite dream” if they do.[1]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Approach with caution, I can get overwhelming
But, in the best way
So babe, if you think you can handle me
Please handle me carefully
Intoxicating, my insecurities don't take vacations
So babe, if you think you can handle me
Please handle me carefully

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause I'm strong in a way
That I know how to show you my fragile
She'll be gone in a minute
If you don't think you're lucky to have her

[Chorus]
So, if you think you can handle me
Please handle me carefully
I could be your favorite drеam
Baby, nobody can love you like I do

[Verse 2]
Yeah, I'm imprеssive (I), I know my superpowers
Now you're invested (I)
I know you wanna come and lay with me
Fall asleep right next to me

[Verse 3]
I'm only human (I), I spent the last years runnin'
But, since I met you, I ain't runnin' from nothing
Baby, you could be
Just exactly what I need (I need)

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause I'm strong in a way (Ooo)
That I know how to show you my fragile (Yeah)
I'll be gone in a minute (Ooo)
If you don't know how lucky your hands are (Ahh)

[Chorus]
So, if you think you can handle me (Ahh)
Please handle me carefully
This could be my favorite dream
Tell me nobody could love me like you do

[Bridge]
Ohh, forever doesn't seem long enough anymore
(Don't mess things up)
No, forever doesn't seem long enough anymore, ohh
No, forever doesn't seem long enough anymore, ohh
No, forever doesn't seem long enough anymore

[Outro]
So, if you think you can handle me
Please handle me carefully
I could be your favorite dream
Nobody can love you like I do
