about

(getting lost in order to find yourself)

By S N Walsh

lyrics

I keep my compass in a magic 8 ball
I keep a magnet underneath my hat
They're all tricks I learned from a dear old friend
To ensure that I never look back

I go sailing in a plastic teacup
I go flying in a foil balloon
And if I seem a million miles away
Just know I'll be back soon

Because I always know no matter which way I go
I'm bound to end up somewhere
So I shake you up, my magic 8-ball compass
For all I know I'm already there

He leaves a note that he's gone adventurin'
With cash on hand for what it's worth
Well I know I shouldn't worry, it's just
He gets lost and he never looks North

He says if you can find your way with limits
Somehow the journey means more
And sometimes it helps if you don't quite know
Exactly what you're looking for

Just as long as you know no matter which way you go
You're bound to end up somewhere
So just shake it up, that magic 8-ball compass
For all you know you're already there

You know the meaning and you know all the words to say
You know the tune and you know all the chords to play
You know the path and you know if you lose your way
You'll be fine, you just make it up anyway

You know it's all yours so take it
No-one said it's easy but you'll make it
When it gets hard that's when you fake it
Your life is waiting, just take it

Because we'll always know no matter which way we go
We're bound to end up somewhere
So just shake it up, the magic 8-ball compass
For all we know we're already there

Yeah, for all we know we're already there
Oh yeah, for all we know we're already there
