"Soul One" as written by Christopher John Thorn, Thomas Rogers Stevens, Brad Smith, Shannon Hoon and Glen Graham....
How come, girl was there
When I needed one?
How come, girl was there
When the song is done?
Some say, open your eyes
To a brighter light.
Okay, opened my heart,
They were right.

She was my soul one.
Oh, she felt she was
The only one.
She was the sun,
Her sky blue eyes,
She was my soul one.

Inside, the pain in my heart
Often made her cry.
Outside, cursed the birds
And the sugar skies.
How long, take to realize
She's the one?
How long 'til I find
My lost and lonely soul one?

She was my soul one,
Lord, you know she felt like
The only one.
She was the sun,
Her sky blue eyes,
She was my soul one.

Should've never taken the time,
'Cause I found myself
Livin' a lonely lie,
You said you left
To find yourself,
But I never,
No, I never got a chance
To say goodbye.

She was my soul one.
You know, I doubt she was the only one,
And I thought she was.

    General CommentBrad and Rogers actually wrote this song before they even met shannon and created blind melon. When they first met shannon , shannon fixed up the melodies and then added the bridge part. Nonetheless this song is still really amazing

    General CommentI keep coming back to this song at different points in my life. I can't tell if he's talking about finding his soul one or that he had found her and now she's gone?
