Compass

(david m. bailey)
Everybody needs a little time to sit and think
About the victories and the failures they have known
Cuz memories can fade as soon as they are made
And it's easy to forget how much you've grown

I'll be the first to tell you I've been on many roads
That took some turns I did not expect
But as far as I can tell, my compass still points north
and I still have time to make my course correct

Harbor lights can flicker, even fade to black
Leave you thinking you are lost at sea
But over the horizon the sun's already rising
And it will show you where you need to be.

Some say you have to face the darkness
If you ever want to wish upon a star
I say you have to face the darkness
To understand who you really are

Everybody needs a little time to sit and think
About where it is they really want to go
Cuz all your dreams can fade as soon as they are made
And it's easy to forget the things you know
I'll be the first to tell you that many roads are waiting
Each have turns you will not expect
But hang on to your compass, have faith in what it tells you:
You still have time to make your course correct
