David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 15

Album
Name of Song: Held in Time

Tugging,
Annoying,
Persistent,
But firm.

Familiar,
Weird time,
Remaining,
Sublime.

Wondering what,
Wondering where,
Giving that feel
that it really does care.

Chorus
Such is the past,
Such is its hold,
So many lifetimes
So we are told.

Lessons to learn,
Visions to see,
But here we are now,
Still that choice just to be.
______

Held in time,
Can’t get free,
Slaves to our own
Refusal to see.

Love still remains,
That’s all we are,
Trying to reach
a much kinder star.

Chorus
Such is the past,
Such is its hold,
So many lifetimes,
So we are told.

Lessons to learn,
Visions to see,
But here we are now,
Still that choice just to be.

Such is the past,
Such is its hold,
So many lifetimes
So we are told.

Lessons to learn,
Visions to see,
But here we are now,
Still that choice just to be.
______

So as I look back,
Well as much as I see,
I venture to face
What I never could be.

I try to face up to,
And not just back down,
I’d like to experience
Without feeling I’ll drown.

Moving through time
Is all that you do,
Reliving that part
From which you earlier blew.

Chorus
Such is the past,
Such is its hold,
So many lifetimes
So we are told.

Lessons to learn,
Visions to see,
But here we are now,
Still that choice just to be.
