David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 31

Album
Name of Song: Staying above

Staying above
the world at large,
To keep myself
out of its charge.

What is the charge,
The sum of all,
The interact of
where we all fall.

Where does one fall,
What do we feel,
Agreeing to all
in the world that we see.

What is the world
we see around,
It starts with the things
we like and we sound.

How we all build
our life to just what,
Those things we all like
and things that we’ve got.

Agreements form into
the mesh of our life,
Whether what we do want
or mistakes from our strife.

We give up ourselves
so the world is in charge,
No need to wonder
why we now feel less large.

I want to love
my family and self,
But my body’s mind
directs somewhere else.

It’s been there for years,
I’m used to it now,
But really I’m numb,
Sorta guilty somehow.

Intolerable burdens
we mostly ignore,
Making the best
and acting out bored.

To be honest I’m tired
of fighting the fight,
But what keeps me going
is me and my might.

We are the hope
in a world not quite home,
Still I try every day
to sorta make it my own.

We are the hope
for our body and mind,
There is real future
when in present time.

We are the hope
for our body and mind,
There is real future
when in present time.

We are the hope
for our body and mind,
There is real future
when in present time.
