Every Living Soul--Lyrics

By DeeDee Laux

Verse Late one evening as I lay watching the news-- So much anger, separation, dividing me and you. Brother against brother and nation against nation Oh itís crazy but itís true, even religion divides us too.

I fell asleep with a sadness deep inside my soul. I was angry at the people who donít think the way I do. Then a voice whispered to me, wipe away your tears. Oh itís time to start anew. Can you hear me? Iím calling you.

Chorus I am Yahweh, I am Jesus, I am Buddha and Mohammed. I am Allah, Iím Jehovah, I am all of these and more. Oh can you see me when you pass me, when you think that Iím not there? Oh can you feel me? Iím everywhere.

Verse For a moment I lay still, soaking in the feeling Of the presence all around me singing in my ear. She said that we were all the same not one was treasured more. No matter who we were, who we loved or what religion we stood for.

I asked him why he spoke to me, well he said he speaks to all. Some wonít listen to his whispers, theyíre afraid to hear her call. Oh he speaks to them in many ways and someday heíll break through. Sometimes he speaks through me and sometimes she speaks through you.

Chorus Iím in the eyes of the children playing in the school yard, In the hearts of the soldiers fighting on both sides. Iím in the soul of the gay man walking down the street. Oh Iím in every living soul you meet.

Verse So maybe now someone is listening whoís not sure weíre all the same. Youíve forgotten where you came from but youíre tired of playing games. Itís not hard to open up your heart and listen to her voice. Oh heís speaking to you now, will you listen? You make the choice.

Chorus Iím a Christian, Iím a Buddhist, I am Atheist, Iím Jewish, I am Muslim, I am Hindu, I am all of these and more. Oh can you see me when you pass me when you think that Iím not there? Oh can you feel me? Iím everywhere?

Chorus Iím in the eyes of the children playing in the school yard, In the hearts of the soldiers fighting on both sides. Iím in the soul of the gay man walking down the street. Oh Iím in every living soul you meet. Yes Iím in every living soul you meet.
