Lyrics

True North

like a kite without a string
like a wave with no shore
like a prize of first place
that no one wins at all
like a cloud with no wind
like a star with no sky
like a hearth with no match for the flame
and I have tried in my own way
to follow my heart
but like a ring with no hand
like a house with no home
I’m lost and I’m out on the road

and since I was a young man
I’ve wandered the fields
my head in the clouds
and my heart full of dreams
and I have tried to live
a purposeful life
to capture all the beauty and the pain
and I have tried in my own way
to be true and follow my dreams
but like a dark without a night
like a word with no page
I’m lost and I’m out on the road

chorus:
and I need you
to make north true
I’m lost and I’m out on the road

like a room with no door
like a hawk without a wing
like a marionette
with no one on the strings
like a beautiful bird
with no song to sing
like a knife with no handle to hold
and I have tried in my own way
to be of good use in this world
but like a light with no warmth
like a tree with no shade
I’m lost and I’m out on the road

chorus
