She waits for me at night
She waits for me in silence
She gives me all her tenderness
And takes away my pain

And so far she hasn't run
Though I swear she's had her moments
She still believes in miracles
While others cry in vain

It's all about soul
It's all about faith and a deeper devotion
It's all about soul
'Cause under the love is a stronger emotion

She's got to be strong
'Cause so many things getting out of control
Should drive her away, so why does she stay?
It's all about soul

She turns to me sometimes
And she asks me what I'm dreaming
And I realize I must have gone
A million miles away

And I ask her how she knew
To reach out for me at that moment
And she smiles because it's understood
There are no words to say

It's all about soul
It's all about knowing what someone is feeling
The woman's got soul
The power of love and the power of healing

This life isn't fair
It's gonna get dark, it's gonna get cold
You've got to get tough, but that ain't enough
It's all about soul

Ah
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na (oh-oh-oh)
It's all about soul
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Yes, it is

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na (oh-oh-oh)
It's all about soul
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na

There are people who have lost
Every trace of human kindness
There are many who have fallen
There are some who still survive

Ah, she comes to me at night
And she tells me her desires
And she gives me all the love I need
To keep my faith alive

It's all about soul
It's all about joy that comes out of sorrow
It's all about soul
Who's standing now, who's standing tomorrow

You've got to be hard
As hard as the rock in that old rock 'n' roll
But that's only part, you know in your heart
It's all about soul

Oh, yeah
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na (oh-oh-oh)
It's all about soul
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Yes, it is

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na (oh-oh-oh)
All about soul
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Yes, it is, yeah-yeah-yeah

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na (oh-oh-oh)
It's all about soul
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Yes, it is, yeah-yeah-yeah

    General CommentI always find this song particularly sad, because I think he wrote it for Christie Brinkley, saying how her strengths and soul have made his life complete...

    and then she goes off and marries some other guy.
