David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 9

Album
Name of Song: Have you ever met a fake?

Have you ever met a fake?,
They seem different now they’re grown,
Nothing like when they were young,
Now they seem so hard to own.

You try to blend like you used to,
Rejecting you instead,
Friendship doesn’t mean much now
So hard to look ahead.

What do you say to them now,
You have to really think,
All that care you had for them
now balanced on the brink.

Chorus
People change unexpectedly,
Then we wonder why,
Purposes and interests,
Secrets on the fly.
The mystery that besets you,
Only they can tell you why,
Safe to tell when near their end
when they know it’s time to die.

Bridge
What does it take to
say what you feel,
What does it take
to do what you see.
Integrity
so stifled when,
You love someone
then turned a bend.
Courage staring
you in the face,
Complete your urge,
Return of space.
