you are free to be yourself,
no one else can do it, when it comes right down to it,
you tried being someone else,
but that was a disaster, you tore your heart in half there,
+++ deep down you know there’s a compass in your soul,
+++ telling you the way to go,
+++ deep down, it’s true, there’s a map inside of you,
+++ pointing where you always knew, deep down…

think about your closest friends,
who are you when you’re with them?  a perfect mess, a human..
and when there’s no one to impress
you sparkle like a true gem, you’re everything you are then,
+++ deep down you know there’s a compass in your soul,
+++ telling you the way to go,
+++ deep down, it’s true, there’s a map inside of you,
+++ pointing where you always knew, deep down..

you’re as flawless as the sky,
with clear and cloudy patches, but who cares if it matches?
you can sing and so can I,
in harmony together, cacophony or better,
+++ deep down we know there’s a compass in our souls,
+++ telling us the way to go,
+++ deep down, it’s true, there’s a map in me, and you,
+++ pointing where we always knew,
+++ pointing where we always knew, deep down..
