David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 18

Album
Name of Song: My life is my own now

It took quite a while,
But I have what I need,
I know where I’m going,
I revived my own creed.

It took quite a while,
It really really did,
So many stories
since I was a kid.

I always was bent
on learning from life,
Not what’s been told me
But learning from strife.

Making it my own,
Is as vital as life,
I made it my own
by living out the strife.

It seems we are locked
In violence and pain,
Long ago times
that we negate or abstain.

Reading and learning
Reinforce what I do,
Closeted scholars
have such closeted views.

It took quite a while,
But I have what I need,
I know where I’m going,
I revived my own creed.

It took quite a while,
It really really did,
So many stories
since I was a kid.

I always was bent
on learning from life,
Not what’s been told me
But learning from strife.

Making it my own,
Is as vital as life,
Make it my own
by living out the strife.

It seems we are locked
In violence and pain,
Long ago times,
that we negate or abstain.

Reading and learning
Reinforce what I do,
Closeted scholars
have such closeted views.

Looking ahead,
My next 70 years,
It’s very exciting
to have moved through those tears.

I now have prediction,
I really didn’t before,
Now I just know,
I have bulletproofed my core.

Living in a world,
That relies on real force,
I now feel secure,
I have found my own source.

Enjoy all my songs,
Try to let them flow in,
I hope they will raise you
up out of your skin.
