Simple Soul

Original and similar lyrics
I'd lift my head with each sunrise If I had a simple soul When I was weary I'd close my eyes If I had a simple soul Not too complicated to shiver when I'm cold I'd make my home where I am bound If I had a simple soul, simple soul I say my prayers and hope to God And I know he will know I will break my daily bread When hunger starts to grow It doesn't have to be that hard If it hurts you let it go What you see is what you are If you've got a simple soul, simple soul It might take an alchemist To turn your dust to gold But it only takes a child to see The diamonds in the coal It's not so easy when a habit takes a hold I never knew it would be so hard To keep my simple soul, simple soul

What Will It Take

Card Michael "The Life"
(To keep you from Jesus) Michael Card What will it take to keep you from Jesus Keep you from heeding His call The simple excuse of a heart that is hard A reason that's nothing at all And there was a man who was owned by his money He was as rich as could be But deep in his heart was a voice that was crying Telling him he wasn't free When he questioned the Master Concerning his problem The answer took his breath away For his money had come to mean more than his soul Forever would stand in his way Chorus What will it take to keep you from Jesus Keep you from heeding His call The simple excuse of a heart that is hard A reason that's nothing at all And how long before you stop with your reasons Take your defenses away It's only a lie that keeps you from following Don't let it stand in your way So many excuses and so many lies Are blocking the Light and the Way But the final decision to follow the Lord Can shatter and blow them away Once there was one who was lame in his body Sick in his body and soul Though he didn't know all the facts about Jesus He knew that he longed to be whole So with some of his friends He went seeking and found him So many stood in their way So they tore through the roof And they lowered him down For nothing could keep him away Chorus

I Can't Make It Alone

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD "Dusty In Memphis"
(Gerry Goffin / Carole King) Now you know me You know how proud I am And what I'm gonna tell you now Won't be easy to say Before I left your side Ooh, I was so happy then But I've been so lonely Since I've been away Oh, baby I've tried and I know I can't make it alone It's such a hard way to go I just can't make it alone There's something in my soul That will always Lead me back to you What can I say now? Sorry is just not good enough I couldn't blame you if you hurt me now The way I hurt you then But who else can I turn to? Oh, baby, I'm begging you Won't you reach out for my dying soul? And make me live again Oh, baby, it's so hard I've tried and I know I can't make it alone It's such a hard way to go I just can't make it alone There's something in my soul That will always Lead me back to you Baby, help me I've tried and I know I can't make it alone It's such a hard way to go And I can't make it alone There's something in my soul That will always Lead me back to you Oh, help me (Please help me) You know I need you (I need you) I'm saying that I need you I just can't make it by myself (I just can't make it by myself) I just can't make it all alone (I just can't make it all alone) I just can't make it by myself (I just can't make it by myself) Come on baby

All That You Have Is Your Soul

TRACY CHAPMAN "Crossroads"
All That You Have Is Your Soul Oh my mama told me 'Cause she say she learned the hard way Say she wanna spare the children She say don't give or sell your soul away 'Cause all that you have is your soul Don't be tempted by the shiny apple Don't you eat of a bitter fruit Hunger only for a taste of justice Hunger only for a world of truth 'Cause all that you have is your soul I was a pretty young girl once I had dreams I had high hopes I married a man he stole my heart away He gave his love but what a high price I paid And all that you have is your soul Why was I such a young fool Thought I'd make history Making babies was the best I could do Thought I'd made something that could be mine forever Found out the hard way one can't possess another And all that you have is your soul I thought thought that I could find a way To beat the system To make a deal and have no debts to pay I'd take it all take it all I'd run away Me for myself first class and first rate But all that you have is your soul Here I am waiting for a better day A second chance A little luck to come my way A hope to dream a hope that I can sleep again And wake in the world with a clear conscience and clean hands 'Cause all that you have is your soul All that you have All that you have All that you have Is your soul

Simple As This

JAKE BUGG "Jake Bugg"
I've been in search of stones Making up the pavement of less traveled roads Mining for treasure deep in my bones That I never found Went looking for reverence Tried to find it in a bottle And came back again High on a hash pipe of good intent But it only brought me down Tried institutions of the mind and soul It only taught me what I should not know Oh and the answer well who would have guessed Could be something as simple as this Something as simple as this Traveled to each ocean's end Saw all seven wonders, trying to make some sense Memorized the mantra Confucius said But it only let me down Tried absolution of the mind and soul It only led me where I should not go Oh and the answer well how could I miss Something as simple as this Something as simple as this I've been falling, crashing, breaking All the while you were stood here waiting For me girl Tried liberation of my own free will But it left me looking to get higher still. Oh and the answer well who would have guessed Could be something as simple as this God knows how I could have missed Something as simple as this

Eternity

KAMELOT "Eternity"
As I sit upon these rocks above I feel the waves crash upon the shore As the sea sprays on my glowing face I wish I could embrace the sea for evermore As I lay my head to sleep at night I dream the sea and me we flow as one But I'm a prisoner of the sands and no one understands these childish dreams An old man approaches me His feeble mind confusing to thee He speaks in riddles and rhymes Tales of an old witch that cast him from the sea But wait my eyes full of splendor or could this be some crazy old tale I look to his eyes for the answer I will my soul to the sea for Eternity I will my soul to the sea for Eternity And so the journey begins The pain and suffering Are your dreams worth this torment? You can deal Another hand But the light in the distance promises this the journeys end Great gods of olympus Great god Poseidon Accept this mortal never let Him return, For He's willed His soul to the sea For Eternity I will my soul to the sea for Eternity I will my soul to the sea for Eternity
