David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 9

Album
Name of Song: Food

Images of sweet sweet candy,
All those scrumptious eats,
The warmth of Grandma’s cooking,
And all those family treats.

Looking forward to dinner,
Waking to breakfast smells,
Freshly brewing coffee,
A treasure of welcome spells.

Distant memories of hunger,
From lives that now are gone,
But definitely not this one I’m in,
Always glad to see the dawn.

Chorus
Food is such a connection,
Between family, folks and friends,
Thanks to the life that gave up theirs
So we don’t have to end.
______

I love the taste of warm bread,
With butter generously spread,
Add a little fresh made jam,
Just before we go to bed.

You can’t replace the kindness,
That comes from mother’s care,
She feeds us till we’ve had enough,
And always some to share.

I can’t imagine another
way of seeing life,
So glad I saw that way to live,
Now I share them with my wife.

Chorus
Food is such a connection,
Between family, folks and friends,
Thanks to the life that gave up theirs
So we don’t have to end.

Scrumptious meals and sugary treats,
You can taste them just by thought,
Gotta find it now and eat it now,
Those images must be sought.

Taste is just sensation,
Sensation is what we want,
It’s our reward for living,
It’s our reward for life.

Chorus
Food is such a connection,
Between family, folks and friends,
Thanks to the life that gave up theirs
So we don’t have to end.

Chorus
Food is such a connection,
Between family, folks and friends,
Thanks to the life that gave up theirs
So we don’t have to end.
