You Are My Compass (EN)

What’s In A Song? – Volume One on Spotify


One day I asked Julian Wilson, can you do a lyric with Amsterdam in it?

The rest is song archive history, although the canals of Amsterdam have to share the song with London’s Eye, The Eiffel Tower, theTaj Mahal, Egypt’s pyramids and so on, but I ofcourse as the one to do the music and as a citizen of Amsterdam, made sure the city was on top of the lyric in the verses …

 

Like Amsterdam with no canals like
London without the Eye
like Paris without the Eiffel Tower
without you I will die
Like India with no Taj Mahal
like Aspen without the snow
I could turn anyway I wanted
but I wouldn’t know where to go

Baby you are my compass
Baby you are my guiding star
My sweet raison d’etre
Tell me where you are

You’re my ray of sunlight
that melts my heart of ice
I really need your company
so gimme gimme some tonight…

Like Egypt without the pyramids
like Bond without a spy
there will always be something missing
without you in my life

Like Indiana with no whip
a bigband without Greco
I couldnt swing even if I wanted
and I wouldnt know I wouldnt even know how

Baby you are my compass
Baby you are my guiding star
My sweet raison d’etre
Tell me where you are

You’re my ray of sunlight
that melts my heart of ice
I really need your company
so gimme gimme some tonight…
