"Soul" as written by Paul Doucette, Rob Thomas and Kyle Cook....
Hang out my window and over your head
Stare at your feelings to see where they end
You're waiting here for someone else to break you from the inside
You've been so composed

We all know there's always something tearing you apart
It's always so much longer than you counted on
And it hits you so much harder then you thought
But you don't worry, you don't worry
Cause you've got soul

You're so heavy, you're so misunderstood
And I spent all my wishes wishing times were good
When I still could
Wait around here for someone else to take me past the good side
You've been here so longer

We all know there's always something tearing you apart
It's always so much longer than you counted on
And it hits you so much harder then you thought
But you don't worry, you don't worry
Cause darling, you've got so much soul
Darling, you've got so much soul

Well, there's always something tearing you apart
It's always so much longer than you counted on
And it hits you so much harder then you thought
Then you ever thought it would

But you don't worry, and you don't worry
Cause you don't worry, you don't worry
Cause you don't worry, you don't worry
Cause you've got soul

    General CommentI think this is such a cool song. To me it's about a guy either dating or just wanting this girl. She's one of those people that is horribly tortured and horribly deep that it just makes you want to scream GET OVER IT! My absolute fav lines are "I spent all my wishes, wishing times were good, when I still could" I don't know how they fit into the story I think he's telling, but they're really cool even out on their own.

    General CommentI agree with Jag3892, it's about a guy who likes a girl who's too interested in being all hurt and tortured so she can't appreciate what's going on now.

    General CommentThat is not what I got from it. I believe it's about a girl that tries to get through the day, everyday, but she's exhausted inside.
    And she doesn't worry, she doesn't complain about it
    ("You don't show there's
    Always something tearing you apart " shows that she isn't some whiny tortured girl) because she knows she has more soul than most people.

    General CommentThis song isn't necessarily about a girl or a guy... It's about someone who may be stressed on the inside, at least that's what everyone thinks, but they don't show it on the outside, and they don't worry about things outside of their control -- he/she just gets through each day like any other person.

    My InterpretationI love this song because its GOT so much soul. Especially if you see it performed live. The band knocks it out of the park!

    But in terms of the lyrics, I think its about someone who does feel things really intensely and have extreme passions. Maybe he's singing it to someone who's super emotional.

    I don't think it's necessarily negative though because the person he's singing about, he ADMIRES their soulfulness. Its also maybe about someone who's hiding their soul instead of releasing it.

    He's kind of reassuring the person throughout the song that maybe its OK to release it .. "don't worry .. don't worry .. you've got SOUL!"
