David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 2

Album
Name of Song: Controlled by secrets

Utter loss,
Devastating,
Nowhere to go,
So very young.

How I feel…,
Others worse,
But devastating
to memories cursed.

Love denied
Such hate on show,
Why such hate,
Seems cannot know.

Chorus
Controlled by secrets,
Not even mine,
Not even old enough
Innocent sublime.
Just a blank slate,
Oblivious,
To human weakness,
So insidious.

Bridge
I tried to share
as I do now,
They both were lost,
Such broken vows.
I am still here,
Spirits thrive,
You cannot kill
what keeps us live.
