about

Boy looks up at his walls to see all his idols that he wants to be but he's so small in a world so big, how is supposed to be those things?

Street corners where he sings his song, all he asks is that you sing along. Well, I asked him if he's got what it takes, "Boy can you make those speakers shake?" He just looked at me with a little smirk, and started up a song with this one verse, and he said...

I know you know that I've got soul
Got soul for this rock'n'roll
This spirit never dies, it never grows old
I've got soul for this...

Well that boy he never stopped, he kept on rocking and went right to the top. Now he is a rolling stone, and now he's got a life of his own.
He never stopped to look back and see all the people who never thought he could be so big in a world so small, now that boy he's got it all.
He remembers that fateful day, a stranger approached with something to say. His first response was this one verse, at the time he had never rehearsed, and he said...

I know you know that I've got soul
Got soul for this rock'n'roll
This spirit never dies, it never grows old
I've got soul for this... Rock'n'roll
but you know
that I've got soul for this rock'n'roll,
but you know...

Boy looks up at his walls to see all his idols that he wants to be,
but he's so small in a world so big, how could he be those things?
Well I just really don't know when I'm travelling down this empty road and I don't have a place to call home, all I got is my soul...
