Crossroads
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


All you folks think you own my life
But you never made any sacrifice
Demons they are on my trail
I'm standing at the crossroads of the hell
I look to the left I look to the right
There're hands that grab me on every side

Mmh, mmh
Mmh, mmh
All you folks think I got my price
At which I'll sell all that is mine
You think money rules when all else fails
Go sell your soul and keep your shell
I'm trying to protect what I keep inside
All the reasons why I live my life

Mmh, mmh
Mmh, mmh
Some say the devil be a mystical thing
I say the devil he a walking man
He a fool he a liar conjurer and a thief
He try to tell you what you want
Try to tell you what you need

Mmh, mmh
Mmh, mmh
Standing at the point
The road it cross you down
What is at your back
Which way do you turn
Who will come to find you first
Your devils or your gods

Mmh
All you folks think you run my life
Say I should be willing to compromise
I say all you demons go back to hell
I'll save my soul, save myself

Mmh, mmh
Mmh, mmh
Save my soul, save myself
Save my soul, save myself
Save my soul, save myself
Save my soul, save myself

Absolutely love this song by Tracy Chapman. This song has become my mantra ✨️

God 1 child

Her music will live within our hearts and minds forever

this song became like the soundtrack to my life when I was 21, just moved to the city and feeling the pull of society to look, act and think a certain way, to succumb to greed and material excess ("demons") in the pursuit of social acceptance, and this became my mantra to stay true to who I am, my values. Maybe she refers to demons as those excessively greedy, oppressive,money obsessed individuals in the music buiss, but I saw it as the kind of collective demon which pursues so many of us and has us caught in a cycle of blind, excessive consumerism and copycat behavior, blinding us to what is true - the sacredness of our earth and the human spirit.
