Don't Be So Shy Lyrics

This song is neither about incest, nor about a pedophile priest... It is a metaphor about the deeper meaning of sex, of making love to a person that you really love.
The song is basically a woman seducing her partner to make love to her and describing her feelings.
The song alternates between the physical (carnal) aspects of sex - e.g. heat of my skin, feel my hips in your hands - and the spiritual aspects. If you make love to someone whom you really love, it brings you closer to God. Hence the references to "bless me Father,I saw God, holy water", etc.

Its about two people Who are about to involve in a sexual act, maybe for the first time and they're trying to make it happen by encouranging each other, saying nice thing reciprocatively.

Sexual fantasy with role playing...
A fantasy involving the power hierarchical relationship between the confessor and Father (Priest)—only reversed: an authoritative seductress dominates the shy male Priest.
Just a sexy song. No pedaphilia intended, there’s enough language to illustrate a religious backing with “Father”. No incest intended either, by the same token.

Is it possible that it's about the sinning of sex before marriage? Perhaps she is looking for a forgiveness from the god of her religion. It could also potentially be about the incest between her and her father, maybe what was once a rape has turned into something more, a desire to be taken advantage of. As suggested in other posts it could also be a fetish with a priest or the Christian religion.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

A sexually excited woman persistedly tries to persuade a priest to have sex with her. Throughout the whole song she is addressing to him - not vice versa. He is shy and tried to avoid her, but she still insisted on it over and over... It's hard to distinguish her imagination from reality. All of this could have been fantasized in her head.

In my personal opinion is about love on a really deep spiritual way, saying it connects you to god.

it is all about blasphemy. insulting church and other peoples religious beliefs guarantees popularity.

It's about a young woman having sexual relations with a priest.

A (young) woman experiencing sex in a spiritual way. Probably an (ex) Christian, because of the phrases, but not bothered by the prudeness so typical for the religion.
The song is not about abusive priests, because they are not shy at all. Also there is nothing in the lyrics like "take a shower". Moreover, Imany is not a boy. Yes I know, some priests approve are tolerant towards intersex sex. But it is a rather far fetched idea.

I really like the song, specially the remix.
After wathcing the official video I think that it´s about love between two girls. Maybe she says "blessed me father" insted "forgive me" or something like that.

I dont think its about incest, I think its more about how having sex for her is spiritual and takes her closer to god.

I would say it is clearly about the abuse in the Catholic Church and whether it was reciprocal or forced, it's good that people are prepared to bring it out and talk about it, in song or the news. I hope it helps some who are yet to tell their story to come out and speak up also.

Anti Christian song!
Why she did not say an immam or the one that married a 9 years old girl.
My cousin is a priest and he is in Africa helping sick people .Risking his life for others in need . The Ebola virus causes an acute, serious illness which is often fatal .
Imany your next song must be about the sacrifice they do .A song about Saint sister mother THERESA will be a a good one too.

she feels that connecting with him means spiritual enlightenment, so she keeps doing it. It has a metaphorical meaning.
