Fools Gold

lyrics

The compass in my hand tells me where to go
The compass in my heart is broke, you know
They wanted me to be a cross of gold
But I am made of wood, splintered and old

I headed to the sea, I headed to the coast
They shivered and they shook and said it was Your ghost
My spirit turned to lead and my heart turned cold
They said You were displeased, that I was wrong to fold

Foolish I may be, my tent pitched on sand
But I can find no rock in this weary land
Jesus, stay my feet and hold my hand
I believe in You, but not in man

I look into Your eyes, they are liquid gold
Their fables turn to ash as Your truth unfolds
Who am I to judge the pharisee;
Condemning me for my adultery

Jesus stay my feet and hold my hand
Until I can see the promised land
