Lyrics

Too Shy

Written By: Cris Clucas

Too shy, to say hello to me
Too tall, too small to see
Can't seem to find a word to say
Too blind to find a way

I've been in love before
How haven't you?
Yes I've been hurt before
But that won't stop me loving you

Have you ever been young and foolish and free?
Then one fateful moment it helps you to see
That just as you know that there was a beginning
So you know, each day goes till the end.
