Opposites attract, too shy from the start

another screwed up night, another lonely heart.

If I could stand tall, show myself the world

Would you think again

and run off to town with me.



So sorry I'm not that convincing

always taking too long.

If you, could see, inside me all that would find

would be a handful of dreams with you in everyone.

I sing myself to sleep every night

wishing you were by my side, thank you this is the end of it all.



I show up at your house, a little after nine

you'd lie to my face, when I ask you the time.

Take the long way home, stare at the moon tonight

and think to myself, how will I make this right?

    General CommentThe song is about falling in love with someone but being too scared to tell that person your feelings for them.
    When all along that other person had the same feelings but you never found out because you are too shy.
