Warren Haynes – Soulshine lyrics
When you can't find the light
That guides you through a cloudy day
When the stars ain't shining bright
And it feels like you've lost your way
When those candle light of home
Burn so very far away
Well you got to let your soul shine
Just like my daddy used to say

He used to say the soulshine
It's better than sunshine
It's better than moonshine
Damn sure better than rain
Hey now people don't mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine 'til the break of day

I grew up thinkin' that I had it made
Gonna make it on my own
Life can take the strongest man
And make him feel so alone
Now and then I feel a cold wind
Blowin' through my aching bones
I think back to what my daddy said
He said, boy, in the darkness before the dawn


Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul
A woman too, god knows, she can feel like this
But hey, when your world seems cold
You got to let your spirit take control

    In the darkness before the dawn! I think back when the darkness was 24/7 for months so the lyrics are very powerful to me. Back when I thought I had the world in the palm of my hands, playing in bands, girlfriend and always hanging out with friends but I look back now and know I never felt so alone in my life. I know now my soul was bankrupt and I could not change it alone. I have learned from some wise people how to let the spirit take control. If I let go and let the spirit the soul will shine. If my soul does not shine then the world will not shine.
