All That You Have...

Oh my mama told me

'Cause she say she learned the hard way

Say she wanna spare the children

She say don't give or sell your soul away

'Cause all that you have is your soul

Don't be tempted by the shiny apple

Don't you eat of a bitter fruit

Hunger only for a taste of justice

Hunger only for a world of truth

'Cause all that you have is your soul

I was a pretty young girl once

I had dreams I had high hopes

I married a man he stole my heart away

He gave his love but what a high price I paid

And all that you have is your soul

Don't be tempted by the shiny apple

Don't you eat of a bitter fruit

Hunger only for a taste of justice

Hunger only for a world of truth

'Cause all that you have is your soul

Why was I such a young fool

Thought I'd make history

Making babies was the best I could do

Thought I'd made something that could be mine forever

Found out the hard way one can't possess another

And all that you have is your soul

Don't be tempted by the shiny apple

Don't you eat of a bitter fruit

Hunger only for a taste of justice

Hunger only for a world of truth

'Cause all that you have is your soul

I thought thought that I could find a way

To beat the system

To make a deal and have no debts to pay

I'd take it all take it all I'd run away

Me for myself first class and first rate

But all that you have is your soul

Don't be tempted by the shiny apple

Don't you eat of a bitter fruit

Hunger only for a taste of justice

Hunger only for a world of truth

'Cause all that you have is your soul

Here I am waiting for a better day

A second chance

A little luck to come my way

A hope to dream a hope that I can sleep again

And wake in the world with a clear conscience and clean hands

'Cause all that you have is your soul

Don't be tempted by the shiny apple

Don't you eat of a bitter fruit

Hunger only for a taste of justice

Hunger only for a world of truth

'Cause all that you have is your soul

Oh my mama told me

'Cause she say she learned the hard way

Say she wanna spare the children

She say don't give or sell your soul away

'Cause all that you have is your soul

 

All that you have

All that you have

All that you have Is your soul
