He Will Save Your Soul
(Rewrite)


original lyrics, Jewel: Who Will Save Your Soul

People living their lives for you on TV
They say they're better than you and you agree
He says "Hold my calls for me I must go"
The boss says "Come here boy, there ain't nothin' for free"
Another doctor's bill, another lawyer's bill
Another cute cheap thrill
You know you love him if you put in your will
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 God's as there are flowers
But 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
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?
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 o.k. for today,
You say that you love them, take their money and run
Say it's been swel, 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 you butts.
Who will save you soul when it comes to the flower
Who will save you soul after all the lies that you told, boy
Who will save your soul if you won't save you own?

People living their lives seeing all as carefree
They say you only live once, so don't worry
Another thriller, another hope no one dies
And you say, oh well, Cause I don't believe in Hell, Tell
That to the father while He goes over your file
Anything drop a clue?
That Jesus Christ might be looking to hear from you

CHORUS:
He will save your soul, with his almighty power
He will save your soul, after all the lies that you told
He will save your soul, since you can't save your own

Don't try to muscle it, try to hustle it, try to force it
The Lord wants someone to save and He's looking right at you
Another day, another failure, another sea, another sailor
Sails off, where the homeless brothers roam
So we stick to as many different gods as there are flowers
Though only one is our friend
We're not worried about saving our souls
We don't think God will take his toll
He won't forget in the end

We were walking, we were talking, I just knocked on his door
He's my only security Earth could not provide more
He's my addiction I need, all I need on my tray
He protects me from the devil, each and every day
I know he loves me, sent His Jesus to die
Saved me from hell, its true, but due to no greatness of mine
We sing these things, its all for you
Its not just a story, I know its true
