David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 20

Album
Name of Song: Do I have enough time?

I’m worried,
Do I have enough time?,
To do those things I want to,
While managing body and mind.

Silently I ponder,
On things I want to do,
On hopes and dreams for just this life,
It’s nice when it’s up to you.

Finding that special partner,
Keeping your own best friend,
Hoping your kids turn out alright,
Before it’s time to end.

Inner silent anguish,
When things don’t go my way.
Do I have enough time to
do those things I crave.

Thoughts I’d like to create,
To help the world along,
I’ve chosen what you see within
Expressing in my songs.

Do I have enough time to,
Erase my reactive mind,
In that way I leave behind
those ever “want me” signs.

Signs that can be triggered,
When others feel the same,
A self evolving trap I’m in,
A really stupid game.

Love transcends reactions,
But always they return,
Wasting time in lifetimes lived,
Discerning endless yearn.

Time and place so vital,
Knowing when and where,
Pain and loss respond to that,
Ignore the past despair.

Ask “Where did it happen?”,
Then ask, “Where are you now?”,
Repeat Repeat until it’s gone,
A simple way to “How?”.

Ask “Where did it happen?”,
Then ask, “Where are you now?”,
Repeat Repeat until it’s gone,
A simple way to “How?”.

Ask “Where did it happen?”,
Then ask, “Where are you now?”,
Repeat Repeat until it’s gone,
A simple way to “How?”.
