10. Compass

by Shawn McDonald


How small we are, underneath these stars
And Iím searching for truth with all my heart
Tell me whereís my head, for Iím a stranger
Pushing my way through the crowded streets
This is uncharted territory

So let love be the compass, love be the compass, love
So let love be the compass, love be the compass, love
When the sky grows dark and the ways unknown
Come awaken my heart and guide me home
ĎCause You are, the lifeline, in my soul
Let love be the compass

So many times Iíve wrecked along the way
But Iím getting up and pressing through today
Iíve got my sights on new beginnings
Itís just a matter of time, deliverance is coming
And Iím still running

As the sun ascends, my heart glows bright
The darkest night, this beating light
To You
Yes, I'll fight for You
And I will take my stand on the battle line
Heart in hand, my tears run dry for You,
For You, for You
Yes, I do it for You

Your love is breaking up the dark
