Shy
I hear pinging
My elbow cracks
She rests on my shoulder
and I dance with the future

Mallets are our feet
and our steps still ringing
have left me swooning
for your every arrival

under my breath
I sing these melodies
certainly they can't go on forever
but how long before then?
Kiss me to forget the past
and remember the present

I dance with the future
because she's a curious girl
You trickle your presence
right through me
until I am here wishing you were too

still
it's not to far
and you worry too much
Kiss me to let go of the future
and remember the present

As we connect
I'll show us a thing or two about passion
Still shy while you shouldn't be
so I give it time
and the present starts to forget our names
