David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 6

Album
Name of Song: When you see something do you make a picture?

Memories in pictures,
A never ending delight,
Alas it seems not native to,
The spirit, you, inside.

Always on automatic,
This picture making machine,
It seems to follow wherever you go,
And remembers all the people you’ve been.

It records like a devoted biographer,
No discern for what it makes memories of,
And part of that machine even works when you’re down,
When you’re regressed into times not really now.

Chorus
What do you do when you see something,
Do you instantly think to snap a shot,
Or is there a dread about an aging machine,
That’s somewhat regretably out of your control.
______

You hope you’re in charge of what you’re doing,
And the truth is you are when you know you are,
But what about the times when you’re tired or in sudden pain,
Can you really say you were 100%.

Emotions tend to effect the way your glands work,
You can feel happy, or a little sad, or overwhelmed,
That sudden loss can make you feel like you’re suddenly somewhere else,
But your mind goes on recording as it take the helm.

Sudden pain or devastation, can leave its mark upon your brow,
It can take the toughest person right down to the ground,
It can wreak the utmost havoc on your mind, your body and you,
That makes you feel its claws for years with all its sounds.

Chorus
What do you do when you see something,
Do you instantly think to snap a shot,
Or is there a dread about an aging machine,
That’s somewhat regrettably out of your control.
______

So do you take a picture of simply everything?
Yes you do, and yes, so does everybody else,
This is one of the main things we all have in common,
Sometimes love comes from of a past like someone else.

You may wonder how the hell this picture machine really got there?,
You may use all sorts of things to keep you sane,
But what do you do when all the stress just overwhelms you,
How do you live and look yourself when you’re simply not.

There is a way for you to lessen the amount of pictures,
Not the good ones, just the ones that keep you down,
It uses you and your own power to face your demons,
And if done right, those negatives melt into the void.

Chorus
What do you do when you see something,
Do you instantly think to snap a shot,
Or is there a dread about an aging machine,
That’s somewhat regrettably out of your control.

Chorus
What do you do when you see something,
Do you instantly think to snap a shot,
Or is there a dread about an aging machine,
That’s somewhat regrettably out of your control.
______

 A way to get relief from a devastating loss
