David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 23

Album
Name of Song: Forgiving yourself needs more time for just you.

It’s takes a lot longer
than I originally thought,
It takes time to mend friendships
and they cannot be bought..

There’s a price that one pays
for denying oneself,
But so many agreements
to leave self on the shelf.

Habits die hard,
Denying oneself,
But what will you do
when there’s nobody else.

Chorus
Forgiving oneself,
It starts from within,
All of those times
wondering where I had been.
I could say so lost,
that I forgot my own self,
But when I look in the mirror
there is nobody else.

God likes to help
those who help their own self,
He prefers natural beings
that reject being else.

It takes time to mend friendships
or the love you betrayed,
Perceive what feels right
and don’t be afraid to just say.

People are human,
that means you too,
Forgiving yourself
needs more time for just you.
