David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 15

Album
Name of Song: To you

I am but just a spirit,
I am but just a life,
I am but just a creative urge
that would rather skip the strife.

At peace alone with just myself,
And understanding why,
Never knowing where I’ll end up though,
Or will I simply die.

I can’t imagine living,
In a world without my past,
But all I’m really trying to do
is make the good times last.

I’ll keep on going that way,
It’s all I’ve ever known,
And it stays with me through lifetimes,
It’s all I really own.

Chorus
You can’t erase a spirit,
So you can’t erase yourself,
They’ve tried and tried and tried and tried,
But here we all still are.
You wonder what we’re made of,
You wonder what we do,
We’re the only hope for mankind now,
So please admire you.

I am but just a spirit,
I am but just a life,
I am but just a creative urge
that would rather skip the strife.

Maybe you are like me,
Maybe we could talk,
About the things that matter most,
And what we could be taught.

I’m willing to be myself now,
I’m open to your being,
I’d like to see if I could fit
into what we both are seeing.

So take a look at future,
Decide if we could be,
Within a space that we both share,
And discuss what we can see.

Chorus
You can’t erase a spirit,
So you can’t erase yourself,
They’ve tried and tried and tried and tried,
But here we all still are.
You wonder what we’re made of,
You wonder what we do,
We’re the only hope for mankind now,
So please admire you.
