David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Name of Song: Relive again

Those early years,
Without the tears,
Rethink my peers
who dealt out evil.

Their canings showed
They had no code,
They didn’t know
about kindness.

So smaller than
when they did stand
above my hand
as they then caned them.

More times than not,
They liked to swat,
Until they got
their warping pleasures.

That British rule,
Infused in schools,
Cane all who don’t
do what is told them.

Their evil stirred
a view so blurred,
It left me feeling
just like their evil.

A child is clear,
To feel their fear,
And go through life,
No understanding.

They took this right
To cause their smite,
Because they simply
could get away with it.

Instead of love,
They hate… sort of,
They see life through pain
and misunderstanding.

A child their prey,
They made us stay,
To learn their way
and their traditions.

As this peer looks down,
I winced then frowned,
What could I do
when someone’s bigger.

Made to respect,
Their weird effects,
They say you’re bad,
Because they said so.

Sadly begun,
Their damage done,
And now we have,
Un-soulful children.

Chorus
We need more love,
Not just from above,
But between ourselves
As we are living.

We need more love,
Not just from above,
But between ourselves
As we are living.
