David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 7

Album
Name of Song: Needy

A body is needy,
To keep it alive,
Taken for granted,
But it needs us to survive.

Stomachs feel empty,
Demand to be filled,
Whether plant or an animal,
Still needs to be killed.

Air is a lifeline,
Without air it dies,
It happens so quickly
Then you move to the sky.


Chorus
Your body is life,
Your body can die,
Accepting those truths
Seems to make people cry.
Why are we here,
A spirit sublime,
Many confusions,
Time after time.

You wake in the morning,
You move through your day,
So many needs
Well it’s simply their way.

In time you do learn,
Your body’s own ways,
You learn what it needs
So you lengthen its days.

A body is needy,
Like a child very young,
Always demanding
Like air for a lung.
Change what it needs,
Control its desires,
Then you can learn
from what then transpires.
