David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 10

Album
Name of Song: Divorce

It starts with the little things like forgetting to remember,
Or not paying attention while you’re pouring out your woes,
Or breaking agreements about the things that meant a lot to you,
Or you wake up and start to feel they’re someone else.

You may feel that they did you the worst wrongdoing,
To break your trust felt like the sin that shouldn’t end,
You then thought and thought about leaving to find another,
As you continued to drive yourself around the bend.

Chorus
Being wronged is something people often talk about,
Being a victim is widely accepted as a way to be,
But taking an honest look and finding you’ve done similar,
Could calm your hurt and make it easier to again see.

Looking back in time, life used to be rather simple,
Too busy a life for random arguing and all that hate,
Daily tendering to the chickens, or fixing broken things,
Growing food and constant hunting was how we ate.

We had no TV or movies or video games,
We had to talk if we wanted to have some fun,
There was also a lot less people nearby to rely on,
Self sufficiency was not for peppers but a way of life.

Chorus
Being wronged is something people often talk about,
Being a victim is widely accepted as a way to be,
But taking an honest look and finding you’ve done similar,
Could calm your hurt and make it easier to again see.

We have evolved into a race of needing money,
But the money still only buys what we seem to want,
Exchanging goods or simply making the things we need to live,
This type of lifestyle may soon return without our consent.

Work has become too much removed from simple living,
Many things that don’t mean anything are put up in lights,
And when the things you need are provided without much give back,
You lose respect for yourself and those you love the most.

We all like to feel what we earned was through our own work,
Something for nothing is just a trick to cave you in,
The sense of accomplishment is one of the pleasures of being human,
Something for nothing only ends up in self disrespect.

Chorus
Being wronged is something people often talk about,
Being a victim is widely accepted as a way to be,
But taking an honest look and finding you’ve done similar,
Could calm your hurt and make it easier to again see.

This doesn’t negate the real life problems in our relationships,
But self respect gives one a base to build one from,
And your self respect will be destroyed by sins unspoken,
Clean your own house before you say it’s all their fault.

There is a deeper look at your partner that you fell in love with,
Their love like yours emerges always from the essential you,
The anti spiritual mind that exists and wants to destroy love,
Lies deep within us and brings that hell that can ensue.

Chorus
Being wronged is something people often talk about,
Being a victim is widely accepted as a way to be,
But taking an honest look and finding you’ve done similar,
Could calm your hurt and make it easier to again see.
______

You are a spirit stuck in a body that’s nothing like you,
Why you are there and why you stay maybe more your plight,
Just keep finding all the rightnesses within you and your partner,
Despite those hidden pressures that seem so out of sight.

Chorus
Being wronged is something people often talk about,
Being a victim is widely accepted as a way to be,
But taking an honest look and finding you’ve done similar,
Could calm your hurt and make it easier to again see.
