David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: Protect

We like to protect our family,
We like to protect our friends,
Protect the good intentioned ones
Who always try to cleanse.

Be careful not to lose
Yourself within their mind,
So easy when we try too hard,
While helping to be kind.

Chorus
Protecting those who need it,
An urge so deep within,
But help is so mistrusted now,
And made to feel like sin.
______

People feel betrayed by help,
Those memories abound,
But those who made you feel that way
Still spin us round and round.

We better protect and help ourselves,
It used to be the way,
And those elected to make it right
Had very little say.

Chorus
Protecting those who need it,
An urge so deep within,
But help is so mistrusted now,
And made to feel like sin.

And made to feel like sin.

______

Good intentioned people,
Are always trying to cleanse,
To keep us on a golden path
So at least we all stay friends.

Beauty is within us,
Kindness is how we’re made,
Use it all to save ourselves,
So life will never fade.

Chorus
Protecting those who need it,
An urge so deep within,
But help is so mistrusted now,
And made to feel like sin.
