David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 24

Album
Name of Song: You are

I want to be remembered,
At least at the time I die,
As someone who had helped them
in a way they knew I tried.

No matter how I did it,
I used so many ways,
I always put my helping first
above the usual fray.

It sometimes tested patience,
And sometimes I would fail,
Willingness was the guiding light
that helped me reset sail.

Chorus
Helping can be stressful,
Our failures now called sin,
Help became betrayal of
our trust so deep within.

Bridge
Our inner urge to help,
Tainted long ago,
By ways that didn’t help us and
betrayed what we might know.

Help became betrayal,
A long long time ago,
Out trust became the victim
of the hope that we might know.
