words and music by Reika Hunt

lyrics

Oh the spyglass that I have is a worthy tool indeed
It shows me a million miles across the foamy sea
But this spyglass cannot show me what I long so much to see
The heart of my true love, wherever she may be

Oh the compass in my hand is as true as e’re I’ve owned
It guides me along my way beneath that fickle dome
But this compass cannot guide me in this question that I hold
Does she think of me? I would that it were so

Oh the schooner that I sail, from mast to solid keel
Rides the waves with grace, she let’s me take her wheel
But this boat cannot compete for this sailor’s promise sealed
For my lady fair, despite her heart concealed

Oh the North Star in the sky is a constant friend in cheer
He talks to me of hope, he takes away my fear
But the North Star cannot tell me what I long so much to hear
Does she wait for me upon that distant pier?
