lyrics

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
