Gentlemen Last – Wish You Were Shy lyrics

If I could have in my fingertips
What; s on the tip of my tongue
I'd just speak your name and sweep you away
I'd want to take you today

(but) there's a social religion
That stands as our division
So I sit and I pray
That before I get the nerve no one will take you away

Ohiwish you were shy just like me
But I can't even look you in the eye
I wish you were shy
But if you were
We might never be together

I strain for your attention
Can't we forget about convention
I've read all the books
Please can't you read my mind
You might like what you'll find

I know I
Shouldn't talk just to myself
If I
Could only get past the first word
Oh I don't know
