Name of Song: I found a new body

Now I’m supposed to,
Do what I’m told,
It’s just not accepted
to suddenly be bold.

You see, I am 6,
Still viewed as a kid,
No rights or a view,
So very constricted.

But I know what I know,
And I see what I see,
And I’m still not convinced
to abandon my creed.

Chorus
6 years ago,
I was 70 years old,
Experienced a lifetime,
Then it ended all alone.
I found a new body,
For some, hard to believe,
That I still know what I know,
That I still see what I see.

No rights or a view,

But I know what I know,
And I see what I see,
And I’m still not convinced

You are a spirit,
I know you forgot,
Your body distracts,
Ties you up in a knot.

You are a spirit,
Loving and kind,
You’re not a meat body,
And you’re not your own mind.
