"Soul For Sale" as written by and Wynton Marsalis....
I always said I wouldn’t be untrue
To anything I put my heart into
I always said that this is where I’ll stay
But maybe I was only sleeping

I never thought I would come to doubt
That there is always an easy way out
I never thought I would feel this way
I pray for that my soul I’m keeping

Everybody longs for the bankroll
Everybody wants control
But you and me we don’t share the same goal
And I ain’t gonna sell my soul

I always felt it would turn out ok
If only I could hold our for another day
I always felt it’d be an happy end
I guess I was a bit too artless

I never thought it would go up in smoke
But I’m still here like a pathetic joke
I never thought I’d lose you my friend
I can be careless but I’m still not heartless

You said we wouldn’t change
But we do and that’s why everything feels strange
You said we’d always win
But if you look at the state we’re in, its all be wearing thin
