Songs for Healing 35

Don’t Be Shy

Cat Stevens

I loved Cat Stevens and his voice. As a teenager I used to sit in my room and listen to the albums over and over. I loved hearing him on the radio.

I remember when I first started hearing this song, when I was a teenager. I was painfully shy. I remember that I used to sing this song and the next song for healing over and over and try to be less shy, to try to live my life more. The song doesn’t have the best of advice, it’s kind of vague, but it was encouraging and that made me feel better. I suppose everyone has songs like that from their teenage years.

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

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

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, etc.
