David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 3

Album
Name of Song: We’re made of goodness

We all know how to love someone,
We all know how we deep down need some more,
We all know it’s not a one way flow of love me,
The give and take of life, it reaches and withdraws.

We all like to eat pretty regularly,
We all need to drink water every day,
We know what goes in has to come out sometime,
These are things we all can share with ease.

Chorus
This quality inside us is what we’re made of,
It is visible in all the lives we choose to see,
A hidden persistence that flows throughout our many lifetimes,
It is the truth that we are all just basically good.

You can see it in the eyes of an innocent child
You can see it in the care a mother gives,
You can follow it in a sport where there’s excitement flowing,
You can feel it when you suddenly fall in love.

It has a tendency to get covered up as we go on living,
That doesn’t mean it isn’t there or you’re suddenly all bad,
Losses and painful impacts provide the cover for it,
So it looks as though we changed and there’s no way back.

Chorus
This quality inside us is what we’re made of,
It is visible in all the lives we choose to see,
A hidden persistence that flows throughout our many lifetimes,
It is the truth that we are all just basically good.

This is definitely the main deep urge we have in common,
After all how often do we put aside our woes,
This urge that rises above all other wonders in this universe,
It is the driving force that’s been there all the time.

There are many things we like to have in common,
It makes our lives so much more pleasant to carry out,
Our basic urge to be kind and decent to those around us,
Is really what the hell everyone is talking about.

Chorus
This quality inside us is what we’re made of,
It is visible in all the lives we choose to see,
A hidden persistence that flows throughout our many lifetimes,
It is the truth that we are all just basically good.
