David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 18

Album
Name of Song: Famous

An urge to be seen,
An urge to be known,
Making it sorta easier
to ease the pain of growing.

Wanting to be famous,
Your cells need loving too,
They often just take over and
demand they lead like you.

Now, they are not experienced
in running your own world,
In fact they need your leadership
when they fall into a swirl.

Chorus
Famous is a sticky thing,
It promises all your goals,
A faster way to speed up life
and bypass all those souls.
But then the toils of getting there,
Your process still goes on,
And after all is said and done
You’re still the same old one.
______

When facing your own demons,
You hope they go away,
But sadly they ignore your cries
unless they have their say.

They tell you fame and fortune,
Will make them nice and calm,
But as you know that’s not the case
and pray your favorite psalm.

Chorus
Famous is a sticky thing,
It promises all your goals,
A faster way to speed up life
and bypass all those souls.
But then the toils of getting there,
Your process still goes on,
And after all is said and done
You’re still the same old one.
______

I know about fame and fortune,
It gives a sorta fix,
But those pesky little demons still
come back to play their tricks.

Deciding to face your demons,
It’s hard, I know, I know,
Get a friend and talk them out
and even up the flow.

Chorus
Famous is a sticky thing,
It promises all your goals,
A faster way to speed up life
and bypass all those souls.
But then the toils of getting there,
Your process still goes on,
And after all is said and done
You’re still the same old one.

Listen listen listen,
Listen to what they say,
Let them talk it out until
they feel they’ve changed their way.
