David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 4

Album
Name of Song: James Taylor – Timeless

He lives in a world that is usually just admired,
Where time takes a backseat to how one lives,
Where reflective thoughts are transformed into music,
In a way rarely done by the average soul.

His integrity to his song is like no other,
Every thought is made aesthetic, no matter what,
He holds true to a standard rarely seen on Earth,
He make music in the form that goes right in.

Chorus
You can sing along with his melodies,
Or just marvel at the way its all been arranged,
You can just let yourself be carried to where he resides,
Which is not anywhere around here.
______

He has mastered the art of composing,
There is never a note out of place,
Everything fits within a perfect circle of love,
A special calmness that is always within.

It doesn’t matter what melody or beat he creates,
It always comes out in a way that’s so pleasing,
This is why he is loved as he’s mastered the knack
Of communicating what he truly is feeling.

Chorus
You can sing along with his melodies,
Or just marvel at the way its all been arranged,
You can just let yourself be carried to where he resides,
Which is not anywhere around here.
______

It isn’t that he’s just blessed with all this wonder,
As his magic is made up of intricate thought,
Plus the time he puts in to make sure everything blends,
Is his mark as a consummate professional.

Never a note out of place or a rhythm,
That’s the care he puts into every song,
And the attention to each member of his incredible band,
Are the finishing touches he makes.

Chorus
You can sing along with his melodies,
Or just marvel at the way its all been arranged,
You can just let yourself be carried to where he resides,
Which is not anywhere around here.
