Tracy Chapman - Crossroads 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

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

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

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

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

    Tracy Chapman 2020? Live pls

  67. Alun Davies

    Sorry I am a bit rough around the edges and I think the world of Miss Chapman it
    Means girly sorry about that but like I said I am quite rough and She’s my ideal as a Woman because She’s so gentle and caring and I think that you are a lot younger than me and that you aren’t as
    Violent when you have to
    Defend your people I’m like this because I am a product of my environment and Miss Chapman is my calm and lovely music that has meaning to me

  68. More raw

    Woke up with this song in my head this morning after asking for it is 🙏 so much gratitude xxx

  69. Kevin Quinn

    In an age when 'likes' have become pretty meaningless, I still like Tracy Chapman.

  90. Rose & Kids

    What a wise women u are Tracey I wish u could of talked to nipsey hussle god bless his soul xxx


    Rose & Kids there are a million lost souls out there who need guidance right now. That’s the problem with the world to busy looking at the past when in reality we should be looking to the future. One thing’s for certain tomorrow there will be another murder. Yet no one try’s to make a change, you’ll wait until it’s to late and say I wish I could have done something.


    Rose & Kids save your blessings for the living!

  91. Este tipo

    From my soul to yours, TE QUIERO!!!

  92. James Crawford
