I couldn't make myself believe how shy I use to be
I couldn't look you in the eye for fear of what you would see.
A shy girl trying to be brave, but knowing all along,
the only way to break my shell, was with a joyful song.
Good bye shy, you played your part so well
But now it's time for shy to fly,
Lifting spirits from a broken shell..
My soul is whole once more..
Shy will never again,
open that old door.
I blushed and flushed and broke into a sweat,
It was a long time before my shadow and I even met.
The crack within that shell of me,
opened up so gently
The light came in, but..oh,\ light flowed out of me,
for all the world to see.
I burst into joyful tears to finally meet the real me.
Shy girl gone, confident me,
My transformation miraculously flys. I am free
Free to be.
