1. She waits for me at night, she waits for me in silence

           Am                     Em             - Dm                                  F    - G

    she gives me all her tenderness         and takes away my pain.

           Am                      Em                      F                            G

    And so far she hasn't run, though I swear she's had her moments,

           Am                    Em        - Dm                               F

    she still believes in miracles         while others cry in vain.

It's all about soul,            it's all about faith and a deeper devotion,

                       C   - G - F                             C                              G

it's all about soul,             'cause under the love is a stronger emotion.

                           Am   - D                            G                                   C

She's got to be strong     'cause so many things getting out of control,

                            F                                   Em                          G

should drive her away, so why does she stay? It's all about soul.

3. She turns to me sometimes and she asks me what I'm dreaming,

             Am         Em                     - Dm                             F     - G

    and I realize I must have gone           a million miles away.

              Am                       Em                  F                           G

    And I ask her how she knew to reach out for me at that moment,

                     Am                       Em                      Dm                      F

    and she smiles because it's understood there are no words to say.

5. There are people who have lost every trace of human kindness,

                     Am                   Em                     Dm                        F  - G

    there are many who have fallen, there are some who still survive.

            Am                    Em                   F                     G

    She comes to me at night, and she tells me her desires,
