  • Everybody says that the living is easy
    I can barely see cause my head's in the way
    Tigers walk behind me- they are to remind me that
    I'm lost- but I'm not afraid

    Ooh
    Soul to soul- A kiss and a sigh
    Sawed in half- by the passage of time
    Ooh
    Halfway home- from a window you see
    Chains and bars- but I am still free
    Ooh

    People on the outside- I remember sweet times
    This old rose- is always in bloom
    Everybody's happy- to be a baby daddy
    Stone love- with nothing to lose

    Ooh
    Life is long- if you give it a way
    So stay, don't go- cause I'm fading away
    Ooh
    Soul to soul- between you and me
    Chain me down- but I am still free
    Ooh

    Now I can say- those three little words
    And every day- I'm dreaming a world
    Ooh
    Soul to soul- a kiss and a sigh
    Holding back- the waters outside.

    Ooh
    Life is long- if you give it a way
    So stay, don't go- cause I'm fading away
    Ooh
    Soul to soul- between you and me
    Chain me down- but I am still free
    Ooh
