Crossroads by Tracy Chapman

Hello so today I am feeling a bit ill, still doesn't stop me from putting a couple of words together, or borrow some more insightful words from somebody else :P.
I was going to put this song in normal text, but I think this one deserves to be always in the way, sometimes poetry is the best way :P.
This is a remarkable song by an amazing artist, one of those song that always inspire us, when she goes hmmm you can feel that you should feel life, and see it has simple has it can be, event if it is just for a moment.
So an eternal song, that has inspired me in other occasion which I stumbled upon today and decided to share with you, hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and please follow the lyrics fucking brilliant :)

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 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

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 comprimise
I say all you demons go back to hell
I'll save my soul save myself
