David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 12

Album
Name of Song: I forgot who I am

Forgetting who I was,
Constant forgetting who I am,
My only worthwhile source of life
Is from me and nobody else.

There are urges to be things that are better,
Hidden tendencies to be someone else,
But my only worthwhile source of life
Is from me and nobody else.

You can’t help it sometimes,
It’s so easy to fall into another’s life,
But forgetting who you are as you fall
Can beget you’re now somebody else.

Maybe you don’t think this is a problem,
Maybe you like being inside another’s head,
But when you leave the body you’re now in on this earth,
You’ll long for you and nobody else.

You’re simplicity is one of being,
Nothing else but who you really are,
You’re innate power to be that beautiful being called you
Is the greatest inner feeling you’ll ever have.

If you’ve ever been totally focused on what you’re doing,
You may remember just how grand that really was,
The invincible feeling of being totally in the now
Begets you and nobody else.

Urges to come,
Urges to go,
Urges to leave,
Urges to show,
Urges to love,
Urges to cry,
Urges to be self,
If even on the sly.

I can forget who I was,
I keep forgetting who I am,
My only worthwhile source of life
Is from me and nobody else.
