David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 23

Album
Name of Song: Being who I was

Tendencies to be,
Identities I was,
Matching how I want to feel,
Simply just because.

There seems no rhyme or reason,
For urges deep within,
Except they’re trying to balance 
our own goodness with our sin.

Karma is peculiar to
Within our physical laws,
It holds us in to what we’ve done,
So we remedy things we’ve caused.

Chorus
We can’t escape our goodness,
It reigns above our sin,
So we invent policemen so 
To balance what we did. 
The system is not perfect,
Must relearn to trust ourself, 
What we did and what we do
still traps up on our shelf.

There seems no rhyme or reason,
For  urges deep within,
Except they’re trying to balance 
our own goodness with past sin.

Your inner self is goodness,
Like feeling right at home,
Negating your own being makes
it hard to feel “the zone.”.
