David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 8

Album
Name of Song: Marrying

Plunging in, leaving the world of past relationships,
Wondering if, there is a hidden trap unknown,
Or feeling nothing, but true love for one another,
The many ways that people merge to live in love.

Then why is it that there’s so many rough divorces,
How can it be that marriage can turn from love to hate,
Even when there are kids who feel the brunt of all this turmoil,
What is it that causes such a change that won’t go back.

Ever wondered what really holds together a relationship,
Between a man and women who decide to tie the knot,
Could it be that they decided to actually help each other,
And in some way they failed and then didn’t know what to do.

Chorus
Help, it’s a natural urge inside,
Help, is something we innately like to do,
Help, is why our paycheck is earned,
Help, is an urge we all strive for.

Go back and talk about failed help,
You’ll be amazed at how it all unfolds,
You’ll suddenly see what failures do to love,
More than the things you were certain of before.

You can apply this as well to your children,
A common source of trying to help but could not connect,
You could even ask them how they felt you failed to help,
You will be utterly surprised at what they say.

Chorus
Help, it’s a natural urge inside,
Help, is something we innately like to do,
Help is why our paycheck is earned,
Help, is an urge we all strive for.

So don’t get too involved in all the make wrong and hate,
It’s what your mind is conditioned to make you think,
You’ll be amazed at the progress made just talking about help,
Then you’ll be more willing to discuss those things you have withheld.

When you feel you’ve both come clean, and there’s love in the air,
And the future looks more bright than it was before,
Ask each other what is needed and wanted as of now,
Write it down so you can refer back to it again and again.

This process I have said can be done by anyone,
Like a spring cleaning to brighten up the day,
It all starts with help and how you failed to do just that,
Then you can both talk about what you have withheld.

Chorus
Help, it’s a natural urge inside,
Help, is something we innately like to do,
Help is why our paycheck is earned,
Help, is an urge we all strive for.
