David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 19

Album
Name of Song: Controlled by useless moral codes

There’s some things I don’t say,
Not because I do not want to,
Not because I am afraid,
Just because it will not help you.

An interesting way of caring,
Only saying what will be,
Understood pretty easily
so you expand their being.

Secrets are so relative
to what they do protect,
A judgement made inside us all
that leaves what you affect.

Chorus
Secrets are part of living,
Are you big enough to withhold,
Saving it for a better time
when a person is less cold.
Everyone has secrets,
Not always a crime,
Sometimes just unsure if there
may be a better time.

Bridge
Able to withhold yourself
from telling everything,
Is one of the most freeing things
to strengthen who you’ve been.
Responsible for action,
It’s what it’s all about,
Withholding what was done until
you can clearly work it out.

Find someone who’s kind
and listens very well,
Can understand both sides of what
you’re honestly all about.

Trust is part of living,
Time to sort it out,
Responsibility takes some time
till you understand about.

Controlling using secrets,
As old as right and wrong,
Controlled by useless moral codes
that have trapped us for so long.

Take your time to understand,
Resolve so true for you,
Then you’ll know about secrets so
you can live and love and do.
