Serve Your Soul Lyrics

by Ben Harper

Battles over which direction to kneel
People reaching out to touch but forgetting to feel
Daily breath shouldn't be a daily penance
Is that what you believe or just a life sentence

I look into the mirror
And I see someone there that I used to know
They all want you to serve them
But the only one you got to serve is your soul

So much time and at such a cost
We spend looking for what we've lost
Now that you know, you can't find it from him
You're gonna have to find it within

I look into the mirror
And I see that life has taken its toll
'Cause they'll all want you to serve them
But the only one you got to serve is your soul
You got to serve your soul

Listen to the wind, it won't lie to you
If you love it let it go and watch it fly to you
Every setting sun gently weeps
You can always hear it 'cause trust never sleeps

Now they all want you to serve them
But the only one you got to serve is your soul
Serve is your soul, serve is your soul, serve is your soul
