about

Martin H. Samuel wrote the lyric about 'the sad story of lost love' – then, Robert Allen composed the music and DownTown Mystic recorded the song which was released by Sha-La Records.

Rick Jamm, JamSphere music reviewer, wrote ...
'DownTown Mystic begins the album on an upbeat acoustic note however, it’s “Soul’d Out”, that yet again steals my heart, as it had done on my hearing it for the first time a while back. I won’t be as arrogant to say that it is the best ballad DownTown Mystic have ever done, but it surely ranks among their top 3.
The crazy thing about this song is that while the lyrics are melancholically heartbreaking, the melody – during the bridge and chorus parts – soars to a limit that will have your heart exploding with elevating intensity.'

lyrics

SOUL'D OUT

GUESS I'M SOUL SEARCHING
SHE'S ON MY MIND
WITH A HEART THAT IS HURTIN'
MUST HAVE BEEN BLIND
I WANDER THESE STREETS
WHERE WE WALKED TOGETHER
BUT PLACES WE'D MEET
ARE STRANGER THAN EVER NOW

AND I THINK OF THOSE DAYS GONE BY ~ SOUL'D OUT
AND I CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER WHY

HOW COULD SOMETHIN' SO RIGHT HAVE TO TURN OUT SO WRONG
WHY SHOULD SOMETHIN' SO GOOD ONLY LAST FOR SO LONG
LIKE A LOVE LEFT BEHIND SO WAS THIS HEART OF MINE
SOUL'D OUT

TOSSING AND TURNING
TIME ON MY HANDS
WITH A HEART THAT IS BURNING
DON'T UNDERSTAND
I SLEEP IN THIS BED
WHERE WE LAY AS LOVERS
BUT THINGS WE ONCE SAID
SHE WHISPERS TO OTHERS NOW

AN' I DREAM OF THOSE NIGHTS THEY'RE PAST ~ SOUL'D OUT
AN' I CAN'T HELP BUT HAVE TO ASK

HOW COULD SOMETHIN' SO RIGHT HAVE TO TURN OUT SO WRONG
WHY SHOULD SOMETHIN' SO GOOD ONLY LAST FOR SO LONG
LIKE A LOVE LEFT BEHIND SO WAS THIS HEART OF MINE
SOUL'D OUT
SOUL'D OUT ~ SOUL'D OUT

HOW COULD SOMETHIN' SO RIGHT HAVE TO TURN OUT SO WRONG
WHY SHOULD SOMETHIN' SO GOOD ONLY LAST FOR SO LONG
LIKE A LOVE LEFT BEHIND SO WAS THIS HEART OF MINE
HOW COULD SOMETHIN' SO RIGHT HAVE TO TURN OUT SO WRONG
WHY SHOULD SOMETHIN' SO GOOD ONLY LAST FOR SO LONG
LIKE A LOVE LEFT BEHIND SO WAS THIS HEART OF MINE
SOUL'D OUT
SOUL'D OUT
SOUL'D OUT
