“Don’t Be Shy”

Don’t Be Shy

by Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens)

Don’t be shy, just let your feelings roll on by
Don’t wear fear or nobody will know you’re there
Just lift your head, and let your feelings out instead
And don’t be shy, just let your feeling roll on by

On by, on by, on by
On by, on by, on by
On by, on by, on by

You know love is better than a song
Love is where all of us belong
So don’t be shy just let your feelings roll on by
Don’t wear fear or nobody will know you’re there

You’re there, you’re there, you’re there
You’re there, you’re there, you’re there
You’re there, you’re there, you’re there

You don’t be shy, just let your feelings roll on by
And don’t wear fear or nobody will know you’re there
Just lift your head, and let your feelings out instead
No, don’t be shy, just let your feeling roll on by

On by, on by, on by
On by, on by, on by
On by, on by, on by

Learning Curve

Every time something ends with a guy, I want to run back.

Maybe it’s because I don’t know how to deal with feelings of loss.

Maybe it’s because I want to stay with what’s familiar.

Maybe it’s fear that I won’t be able to find something as good. I mean, the relationship has ended, but it was something. If that something wasn’t good, I probably wouldn’t have stuck around for as long as I did (or want to go back, for that matter).

Would You Fight for Me?

It seems like, when I choose a ‘partner’, I pick men who are emotionally unavailable – whether I know they are or not.

They used to be men who wouldn’t even take care of me, let alone “fight for me”. In fact, when I actually started needing my partner to be present in the relationship, neither of my long-term relationships lasted at all. Both of them discarded me easily when I started needing them as much as they needed me.

I hoped that this time, with TC, I chose differently.

I want this more than words can express. But, is it possible that I do things to ensure my relationships won’t work?
