Shy Boy

At the party 
People having a good time
But I always sit alone
Wishing that
I was home
Instead of here. 
I'll get another beer.

I am a shy boy
And I never say much
Always afraid to touch
And I'd never tell you
How much that smile meant to me
It made me light it made me free
Just to see you.

And I'd welcome the morning.
Because a new day was a new chance
To steal another glance
And this time I swear I'll say hello.
But I waited too long
And then you were gone.
You floated away like an angel
Beautiful and graceful
And I am grateful
You brushed by me.
And I should be crying
But being in your presence
Just Made me happy.
And I loved you so much...
And I loved you so much...
I almost told you.

And the party
Is finally over
And I'm going home again
And I'm all alone again.
That's the way it always is
When you're shy.
