Song Lyric Sunday – Soul

Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday  this week is SOUL.

My first thoughts were to go for the soul songs of the 60s.  Sam and Dave, Wilson Picket, Otis Redding etc. but I opted for Van Morrison’s song Soul.  The lyrics are his beautiful poetry …

Soul is a feeling, feeling deep within
Soul is not the color of your skin
Soul is the essence, essence from within”
It is where everything begins

It is the right choice for me.

Have a great day!

Lyrics

Soul

Van Morrison

Soul is a feeling, feeling deep within
Soul is not the color of your skin
Soul is the essence, essence from within
It is where everything begins

Soul is what you’ve been through
What’s true for you
Where you going to
What you’re gonna do

Soul is your station for the folk of your nation
Something that you wear with pride
Soul can be your vision or something that is hidden
It’s not something that you gotta hide

Soul is what you’ve been through
What’s true for you
Where you going to
What you’re gonna do

Soul can be your station for the folk of your nation
Something that you wear with pride
Soul can be your vision it can be your religion
Something that you just can’t hide

Soul is a feeling, feeling deep within
Soul is not the color of your skin
Soul is the essence, essence from within
Soul is where everything begins

Songwriters: Van Morrison

    I like Van Morrison, but I was unfamiliar with this song. Thanks for the introduction.
