This song was created last year and was just recently release on a compilation. This is the first release from Goapele since the album "Change it All".


It was a sunny day
And he walked my way
Asked me "how u doing?"
- said im doing fine
Infact a little better now

As i walked away, with the faintest heart
I wish I didn't leave, all I did was smile
I could've done a little more

he said, "don't b shy come to me,
don't b shy, its worth your while,
don't let this moment pass u by"

But I know the games that they like to play
this tender little heart, not willing 2 give in or get caught up when it escalates

What if next time I see him
My feelings can't conceal them
And will he still remember
That warm day in november?

I'll say its been a long time
I wonder if I crossed your mind
Or was I just a girl, not different from the rest?
U can tell me, I'll be brave

Don't b shy come 2 me
Donlt b shy its worth your while
Don't let this moment pass u by
Don't be shy baby please
Don't b shy its worth you while
Don't let it pass u by again

Now weeks have passed, and we went our seperate ways
So me and my girls found something 2 get into, c what the night would have in store.
And who would b, right in back of me
Easing his way in the crowded line to the crowded little dance floor

He asked me could I feel it?
Asurance did he need it?
And was I obligated?
No babe don't hesitate


I know that he could b
The one to set my soul at ease
So I gave in to see
What I had missed b4
