Young Soul Rebels — I Got Soul lyrics

When there's nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
One more son
If you just hold on
If you just hold on, hold on,

I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier

From peace in the world, I'm a big supporter
All these kids wanna drink is water
But the conflict destroys the bricks and mortar
See pain in their eyes I can feel the torture

When there's nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
One more son
If you just hold on
If you just on hold on, hold on,

I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier

Listen, you got no love coz you never received it
And that's coz you never did teach it
Preach this, let the kids go
Cos love is emotion trapped in a soul

When you think your battles are won
Then you find it's left undone, left undone
If you can't hold on,
If you can't hold on
Hold on

I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier

See me I'm the type that will die for a cause
But no kid should die for a war
Let fight for a cause, pray for better days
When the going gets tough there's a better way
Faze, you know you been there when there's better days
No more pain, my life's gotta better page
And no kid should die for a war
I will fight in the eyes of the lord

I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier

Let them breath in air don't choke them
I got soul so my heart stays open
Stop the war, man, the kids ain't copin'
I see light, look over the ocean

I'm not a soldier

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah, you know you gotta help me out
Yeah oh don't you put me on the back burner
You know you gotta help me out yeah
You gonna bring yourself down

Over and in, let's call for sin
Where everyone's lost the battle is won
With all these things that I have done

I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
I got soul but I'm not a soldier
