People living their lives for you on TV They say they're better than you and you agree Another burger, another hot dog, some fries A wish in the well, hope your health don't go to hell, well Another doctors bill, another lawyer's bill Another cute cheap thrill You know you love him if you put him in your will
[Chorus] Who will save your soul when it comes to the flower Who will save your soul after all the lies that you told, boy Who will save your soul if you won't save your own?
We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue Another day, another dollar, another war, another tower Went up where the homeless had their homes So we pray to as many different gods as there are flowers We call religion our friend We're so worried about saving our souls Afraid that God will take his toll That we forget to begin
Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill You got social security, but that don't pay your bills There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay So you bargain with the Devil, say you're okay for today You say you love them take your money and run Say it's been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things Those flings, those strings you've got to cut So get out on the streets, girls, and bust your butts
Robert from Indiana You have two other songs along with this song in the list of songs you have down for Jewel that are on this album as well which are, "Foolish Games" and "You Were Meant For Me", when I go to both of those songs you have have the year 1995 as the year that this album came out which is correct, but when I come to this song you have the album down as coming out in 1994.[the song was released as a single in 1994, before the album came out - ed]
Matt from Houston, Txhow come no one mentions when she first heard it on the radio, she cried because because she sounded like kermit the frog
Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnI love how Jewel hits that high note towards the end of the song, her most honest song to date.
Morgan from Bemidji, MnI want to know the story behind Little Sister.
Julie from Taylor, TxBeautiful. This song has such an awsome meaning to it.
Raymond from Sydney , AustraliaWho will save your soul? What is the soul anyway? Is heaven and hell real? What are UFO's? Find out, find me.
Maria from Philadelphia, PaPretty sure that this video (not "You Were Meant for Me" as stated on that song's page) was directed by Sean Penn.
Angel from Somewhere In, AzJewel often sings different versions of her most popular songs at concerts- it is rare that she will sing songs the way theu are heard on the radion, or even on her CD.
Claire from Oak Ridge, TnI perfomed this at a talent show at my church; it was the best thing I could have done.
Bethany from Carrier Mills, Ilshe said in one of her concerts that she sounded like kermit the frog, and almost cried. To rikki: i noticed that too, if you ever see her in concert she sings the lyrics in the album jacket.
Lola from Street, MdHearing that she wrote this when she was 16, and was touched by other people so young. And I'm only 14! It truly gives me inspiration.
I also adore Sheryl Crow, Sarah McLachland and Alanis Morrisette. What genre exactly would you consider (including Jewel) It seems to be my favorite :)
Emma from Auckland, New ZealandHands Down the best song from Pieces of You ;-)
Claire from Oak Ridge, TnI know all the words to this and hope to sing it one day to an audience because it truly deserves to be.
Shawn from Loganville, GaI think this songs meaning is how messed up the world is, because of all the media and entertainment world.
Rikki from Rochester, MiThe version heard on the radio and on the album has different lyrics than are listed in the album jacket.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
