David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 12

Album
Name of Song: But I would like to own myself

When my body feels emotion,
So curious I become,
I wonder if I’ll learn about
our differences when one.

Understanding this body in,
I need to separate myself,
It’s personal, very personal,
Not part of anyone else.

We own a lot of things these days,
Our body part of that,
But I would like to own myself
and maybe have a chat.

Chorus
We have to separate on out
before we lose our choice,
To do it now more consciously
before our final voice.
Maybe you are used to being
inside while life goes on,
And people think I’m crazy if
I put it in this song.

Bridge
What to do while living,
But never when we’re dead,
Separating out from all
those feelings made of dread.
You know they sorta lurk inside,
Necessity brings them out,
But quiet boring living never
stirs those buried doubts.

Dying’s overrated as
the end of everything,
When really all that happens is
your body packs it in.

Learn to separate on out
from your body while you’re in,
Be prepared when your time comes
so you’ll remember where you’ve been.

Remember you’re a spirit,
You’ve always been yourself,
So many distant memories stored
to make you someone else.

Remember you’re a spirit,
You’ve always been yourself,
So many distant memories stored
to make you someone else.
