David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 3

Name of Song: Dying is not an option

Just because you feel like dying,
Doesn’t mean you have to go and die,
There are other choices you can make,
There are other roads to drive.

Your mind has a habit of tricking you,
Into thinking your body is the source,
But just because it doesn’t clearly show its face,
Doesn’t mean on yourself you then use force.

Chorus
Looking out, looking about,
Looking all around,
Looking where you shouldn’t go,
Is better than falling down.
______

I should know, I tell you,
From the deepest depths of soul,
Losses almost unimaginable,
That my mind could never behold.

So what my body did with this overwhelm,
Nothing new, just following the mold,
It began to die on command from my mind,
A common saga of life made, “Oh so bold”.

Chorus
Looking out, looking about,
Looking all around,
Looking where you shouldn’t go,
Is better than falling down.
______

Seeing became believing,
When I traced the illness back,
My body became a victim of,
My mind and all its crap.

Force comes out of memories,
Often nothing to do with now,
The light touch is always better,
Makes it easier to figure out how.

Chorus
Looking out, looking about,
Looking all around,
Looking where you shouldn’t go,
Is better than falling down.
