David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 9

Album
Name of Song: You can remember

You can remember hidden things,
They ebb and flow within,
They’re looking for their own resolve,
Before they urge to sin.

Frustrated memories do that,
Alive but stuck in time,
Such is the hidden nature of
Our own reactive mind.

You think you’ve got a handle,
Your happiness well in sight,
Then suddenly you feel the same ‘ole way,
And wonder about your might.

Chorus
You can remember hidden things,
Observe and look within,
Calmly pervade your memory,
Until you feel you’re in.
Believe what you’re observing,
It’s really all you have,
Learning to learn about yourself,
Until you feel you can.
______

Memories of self,
Rest quietly in your mind,
Then one day they’re woken up
by something like in kind.

You motivate on what happened,
Demand to know what’s wrong,
Sometimes you blame what woke it up,
And so your life goes on.

Chorus
You can remember hidden things,
Observe and look within,
Calmly pervade your memory,
Until you feel you’re in.
Believe what you’re observing,
It’s really all you have,
Learning to learn about yourself,
Until you feel you can.
______

Practice is a factor,
In anything you want to do,
Becoming a friend of you, yourself,
The fastest way to you.

It’s fun to just remember,
When life was really good,
That thrill of reminiscing when
you knew you really could.

Chorus
You can remember hidden things,
Observe and look within,
Calmly pervade your memory,
Until you feel you’re in.
Believe what you’re observing,
It’s really all you have,
Learning to learn about yourself,
Until you feel you can.

Bridge
So what’s this big deal remembering,
Well pain is also there,
And it just covers up everything,
And leaves you asking where?
_____

Left alone these memories,
You think they’ll stay alseep,
But deep down you know that’s not true,
Sometimes we react like sheep.

Do you sometimes feel real solid,
And think that’s who you are,
Well it takes a lot of pain to trap
a spirit in a mind.

Chorus
You can remember hidden things,
Observe and look within,
Calmly pervade your memory,
Until you feel you’re in.
Believe what you’re observing,
It’s really all you have,
Learning to learn about yourself,
Until you feel you can.
