David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: I want to be still again

I want to be still again,
Away from all the fuss,
Away from what I’m used to being,
From what we think is us.

This may be hard to understand,
It’s not what most discuss,
It’s something though I think about,
As I separate out from “us”.

Chorus
I am myself a being,
I am not what you see,
A forgotten spark of life now dim,
The loss we bear as beings.
______

We all keep on with moving,
But it’s nice to take a break,
And reconnect with self again,
A calm I like to make.

This world is made of motion,
Of moving things around,
But sometimes I can see myself,
So still on higher ground.

Chorus
I am myself a being,
I am not what you see,
A forgotten spark of life now dim,
The loss we bear as beings.

______

I yearn to find more soul mates,
Who think the way I do,
Maybe you’d like to see yourself
As the spirit who’s truly you.

It’s lonely being a spirit,
Bodies are so the thing,
But I know I create my life,
And sometimes like to sing.

Chorus
I am myself a being,
I am not what you see,
A forgotten spark of life now dim,
The loss we bear as beings.

______

My purpose wasn’t to conquer,
The enormity of all we see,
I simply want to find my place,
Be still and calmly be.

My purpose wasn’t to conquer,
The enormity of all we see,
I simply want to find my place,
Be still and calmly be.

Chorus
I am myself a being,
I am not what you see,
A forgotten spark of life now dim,
The loss we bear as beings.
