David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 15

Album
Name of Song: Be your own self

She’s living in a nightmare
That doesn’t seem to quit,
With all her smiles and AOK’s,
As she peers out from her pit.

I can’t imagine living in
A constant show of smiles
That cover up my current state,
To look like I’m in style.

Chorus
People wanna look good,
For what I wonder why,
We’re all inside the same ole’ trap,
But we hope to reach the sky.
We occasionally have a talk with
Ourself or our best friend,
To somehow make some sense of this
As we move towards our end.

I pride myself in honesty,
I’ve always tried to be,
That person that I really am,
For all the world to see.

It’s sometimes very scary,
To show oneself to all,
When you’re really feeling terrible,
And just about to fall.

Chorus
People wanna look good,
For what I wonder why,
We’re all inside the same ole’ trap,
But we hope to reach the sky.
We occasionally have a talk with
Ourself or our best friend,
To somehow make some sense of this
As we move towards our end.
______

There’s nothing wrong with facing,
Your fears with all the fright,
As long as you keep trying
To never give up the fight.

You have within your psyche,
The power to be just you,
That power is all you really have,
And it takes you right on through.

Chorus
People wanna look good,
For what I wonder why,
We’re all inside the same ole’ trap,
But we hope to reach the sky.
We occasionally have a talk with
Ourself or our best friend,
To somehow make some sense of this
As we move towards our end.

Be your own self with kindness,
Be your own self with love,
Be your own self with all you’ve got,
And you’ll find yourself above.

Be your own self with kindness,
Be your own self with love,
Be your own self with all you’ve got,
And you’ll find yourself above.

BBe your own self with kindness,
Be your own self with love,
Be your own self with all you’ve got,
And you’ll find yourself above.

Be your own self with kindness,
Be your own self with love,
Be your own self with all you’ve got,
And you’ll find yourself above.
