Lyrics: Soul One


Recorded at: Downtown Rehearsal, Los Angeles, CA 1991

 

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, open my arms they were right
She was my soul one
She felt she was the only one
She was the sun, the sky blue eyes
She was my soul one
Inside, pain in my heart often made her cry
Outside, I cursed the birds and the sugar sky
How long take to realize she's the one
How long until I find my lost and lonely soul one
She was my soul one
She felt like the only one
She was the sun, the sky blue eyes
She was my soul one
Should of never taken the time
'Cause I found myself living a lonely lie
You said, you left to find yourself
But I never, no I never got the chance to say good-bye
She was my soul one I though she was

 


from the "Soul One" video

This song has been written by Rogers and Brad before they met the rest of the band. It's the very first Blind Melon's song.

In retrospect, "Soul One," could have been written for Nico. Shannon sings about finding someone who really means something to him and regrets that "I never got the chance to say goodbye." 

 

Brad wrote a song called "Soul One," which was not on the first record, that the record company actually thought would be a giant hit... Brad has the same feeling. All of us were like, "no, we're not putting that song on the record," and the record company was like, "it's a hit." And we were like, "fuck you. We're 20. We know what we're doing." To this day, I'll talk to people at Capitol who say we probably could have sold a couple million more records if you would have put "Soul One" on it. Ah, that hurts. But, hey, we're known for having shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times.
