Track Name: Bobbie Watson (Drift) - Compass
COMPASS
I’M WORKING OUT THE CLUES TO THIS BIG STORY
STOPPING CONSTANTLY AND LOOKING ROUND TO FIND THEM
AT FIRST IT WAS ALL DIM AND FUZZY FEELING
STRETCHING OUT MY ARMS TO STOP MYSELF FROM FALLING.

NOW WHAT WAS THAT YOU SAID TO ME ABOUT IT?
I COUDN’T HEAR, I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE SAYING.
AND THOUGH THERE WAS NO WAY AND NO DIRECTION
I JUST HOPED I’D FIND A CLEARER WAY TO SEE IT.
CHORUS
A HAND HOLD, A COMPASS
A TOUGH LINE TO STEER WITH ME.
SO TRACE BACK THE FAULT LINE
YOU MADE IT OK FOR US.

SO NOW A FEW THINGS SEEM TO SURFACE FOR ME,
FRESH AND NEW AND LOOKING LIKE THEY’VE NEVER BEEN LOST
AND THOUGH THE KEY WAS NEVER HIDDEN FROM ME
I HAD TO FIND A WAY OF USING WHAT WAS OFFERED.

CHORUS
A HAND HOLD, A COMPASS
A TOUGH LINE TO STEER WITH ME.
SO TRACE BACK THE FAULT LINE
YOU MADE IT OK FOR US.

YOU ANCHORED ME HERE,
THIS MUCH IS CLEAR
YOU OFFERED A LINE,
I HELD THIS TIME
SECURED WITH A WORD,
UNSEEN, UNHEARD
I WOULDN’T HAVE COME THIS FAR ALONE

RPT CHORUS
Track Name: Bobbie Watson (Drift) - End Of The Line
---------- End of the Line----------

Someone’s speaking to me …
where on earth are you
the message tells me
Sing a wish and leave my name

Was that the last call
unavailable to me….
Direct line goes nowhere
you must check and try again

I’m sick of trying (check again)
A voice in the void.

Re-appear and reassure that
all is o.k.
the lifeline’s all connected
all installed and secure.
Will you recognize it
will the code be right
I can indicate and direct the light

Couldn’t take control, you lost the line
in the dark you came apart
a message is waiting
Harbouring the hate of what you’ve done
now i just can’t reconcile
the breaking of the word
Your circle of untruth nurtures more
and keeps you running
( break then rpt.)

Now your’re disconnected
the set up’s broken down
you come inside a few steps
test the line, turn around

It is much too easy
to go miles away
not that you can’t fix it
you just never meant to stay
This is the message (try again)
I won’t go away
