David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: I am Myself

I am myself inside of me,
So scared to bare my soul,
Will they see me like I see myself,
Or should I use my other role.

I’m always looking for that person,
Who’ll become like who I am,
Then I’ll know it’s safe to be myself,
And not my usual sham.

Chorus
Is it safe to come outside my shell,
And show my self to life,
I know it’s better to bare my soul
And not worry about all the strife.
______

I have these scars from times gone by,
They hold me back from love,
There’s bits of me I left back there,
Still frozen there, sort of.

I’m a fragile little spirit,
So hard to show myself,
So I wrap my mouth in a smiling face,
And then hide up on the shelf.

Inside I know it isn’t right,
I know I must begin,
To show my personality
And let go my haunting sins.

Chorus
Is it safe to come outside my shell,
And show my self to life,
I know it’s better to bare my soul
And not worry about all the strife.

Inside I know it isn’t right,
I know I must begin,
To show my personality
And let go my haunting sin.

I am myself inside of me,
But I’m scared to bare my soul,
Will they see me like I see myself,
Or should I use my other role.

I’m always looking for that person,
Who’ll become like who I am,
Then I’ll know it’s safe to be myself,
And not my usual sham.

Chorus
Is it safe to come outside my shell,
And show my self to life,
I know it’s better to bare my soul
And not worry about all the strife.
