You’ve been an old romantic
You’ve been a Young idealist
You’ve been a little manic
You’ve had to be a realist
You’ve had a lot of lovers come and go
You’ve had to spend a lot of time alone
You wonder if You're better off on Your own
I understand why
I know You're love shy baby and so am I
You’ve studied with professors
You’ve struggled with the artists
You’ve ministered to lepers
And other non conformists
You’ve had a lot of lovers through Your door
You’ve spent a lot of time looking at Your phone
You wonder if You ever will be known
And so do I
I know You're love shy baby but you’ve still got to try
You’ve taken the poison
You’ve tasted the nectar
When given the choice
You choose the unexpected
You’ve had a lot of lovers and there will be more
Maybe one day You'll find the perfect score
The absolute stranger that you're looking for will catch your eye
For now you're just love shy baby
But don't be shy
I know You're love shy baby
'Cause so am I
