David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 13

Album
Name of Song: You should be just like me

I want you to be
Just like me.
You should now act,
Just like me in fact.

You should now be,
So everyone else can see,
That you belong to me,
This is to you my plea.

I know it can be hard,
But I will always be on guard,
You have to be like me,
For I need that kind of future.

Family is the way,
To protect you from the fray,
We must be all just one,
Like the life source from the sun.

I won’t,
I can’t,
I never will,
Be what you want.

I cannot change
To become that deranged,
Just because you’re blind
To your own future.

You must respect,
My intellect,
Don’t infuse yourself
into our connect.

You kindly gave
Me a body to crave,
Now let me be,
So I can see.

Don’t crowd my life,
With your own strife,
I need to be
Just my own person.

I love you dad,
But you’ve been had,
Resolve yourself,
And just start being.

I am myself,
There’s not much else,
About trying to be,
My very own person.

You can be who,
You wanted to,
Stop thinking that,
I am your future.

I love you dad,
I always will,
Now let me see,
What I can be.

Let’s have a life,
Without this strife,
Let’s separate out,
And never doubt,
…And never feel the need to become each other.

You can be who,
You wanted to,
Stop thinking that,
I am your future.

I love you dad,
I always will,
Now let me see,
What I can be.

Let’s have a life,
Without this strife,
Let’s separate out,
And never doubt,
…And never feel the need to become each other.
