David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 12

Album
Name of Song: Are you held down?

Are you held down?
Are you not there?
Have you gone inside
because you just don’t care?

Did someone finally get to you?
And it became too hard to live,
To be yourself as you would like,
Not pushed into a sieve.

Is someone actively beating you?
Or making you feel small?,
So all you do is hurt yourself,
In your effort to be tall.

Are you always trying to prove yourself?
So used to being wrong,
Too hard to find a safer place
To make yourself more strong.

I know it’s hard to see your way
Through deeply cutting barbs,
That goodness that is really you
Too squashed to really guard.

When hope just feels like doom and gloom,
And life becomes a blur,
There’s probably one who loves you more
A living him or her.

We’ve all been through the horror,
Of being alone and sad,
Of never knowing when it all will end,
So good can come from bad.

Persisting never fails to shine,
If you can last the pain,
And come on through the horror that
Did have you so contained.

Persisting never fails to shine,
If you can last the pain,
And come on through the horror that
Did have you so contained.
