As It Is - Map & Compass Lyrics




If you should leave me you'd need only look as far
As every other man exasperated fed up with where they are
But map and compass in my hand I'll navigate my way home
And if all goes right this'll be the end of sleepless nights

With my headphones on, same damn song
Playing on repeat the whole night long
Clean slate, new fate seems daunting
With my headphones on, and the same damn song
Playing on repeat the whole night long
And now nothing can stop me

Your definition misconstrued [?]
Don't wanna carry on this road alone or go on one soul edge [?]
Take one step back onto the right path here, you watch me as I try
A restless night is just a lie

My future self is on the phone I'll have to see this one through
And if all goes right this'll be the end of sleepless nights

With my headphones on, same damn song
Playing on repeat the whole night long
Clean slate, new fate seems daunting
With my headphones on, and the same damn song
Playing on repeat the whole night long
And now nothing can stop me

I let myself sink in too low
Spread out, got comfortable in a world
That looked convincing
Just do it on my own
Someone else can play that part
Now I've moved on to better things
To the things I may

With map and compass in my hand I'll navigate my way home
And if all goes right this'll be the end of sleepless nights

With my headphones on, same damn song
Playing on repeat the whole night long
Clean slate, new fate seems daunting
With my headphones on, and the same damn song
Playing on repeat the whole night long
And now nothing can stop me

    if you should leave me
    you'd need only look as far
    as every other man exasperated
    fed up with where they are

    but map and compass in my hand
    i'll navigate my way home
    and if all goes right
    this'll be the end of sleepless nights

    with my headphones on, same damn song
    playing on repeat the whole night long
    clean slate, new fate seems daunted
    with my headphones on, and the same damn song
    playing on repeat the whole night long
    and now nothing can stop me

    your definition misconstrued
    and i don't wanna carry on this road alone
    or go on [one soul edge?]
    take one step back onto the right path
    here, you watch me as i try
    a restless night is just a lie

    my future self is on the phone
    i'll have to see this one through
    and if all goes right
    this'll be the end of sleepless nights

    with my headphones on, same damn song
    playing on repeat the whole night long
    clean slate, new fate seems daunted
    with my headphones on, and the same damn song
    playing on repeat the whole night long
    and now nothing can stop me

    i let myself sink in too low
    spread out, got comfortable
    in a world that looked convincing
    just do it on my own

    someone else can play that part now
    i've moved on to better things
    to the things i may
    with map and compass in my hand
    i'll navigate my way home
    and if all goes right
    this'll be the end of sleepless nights

    with my headphones on, same damn song
    playing on repeat the whole night long
    clean slate, new fate seems daunted
    with my headphones on, and the same damn song
    playing on repeat the whole night long
    and now nothing can stop me

  36. Josh Kamerer

    can we get lyrics?

  37. paaparoni

    I find it so cute that Patty closes his eyes when singing

    tay_marie

    he just gets right into the music and I love it

  38. Deborah Anne Peralta

    Where I could get the lyrics of As It Is songs ?
    I really love this band, especially Patty Walters :) \m/

  39. Johnny Meyer

    Singer kind of looks like Macklemore if you look hard. 

  40. Eilidh Stewart

    People that say that Patty is nasely, that's his style and accent and voice basically. It's just how he sings just how some people are high, other accents are really prominent, some people put a talking slant on their singing voice, its just little quirks that make it more interesting and original..if you don't like it fair enough...if you want to express it go ahead but there's no need to say it nastily...I don't see why you'd want to comment criticism on here anyway but yeah its okay to do so in the right way.

    Sam Verduzco

    Eilidh Stewart yeah but it’s not the correct way to sing so

  41. Rhiannon xo

    Yes i am playing it on repeat all night long!x 

  42. DasLulu97

    sounds very influenced by blink-182 but I mean in a good way because it sounds awesome! blink-182 is my second fav band anyway so yeah well done boys ;)

  43. KirkyKirsten

    Finds youtubers through other youtubers, finds band because one of the members is said youtuber, listens to one and a half songs, becomes mildly obsessed. You guys are awesome! And I don't even usually like this genre that much. But seriously. Amaze. :))))))

    Ashley K Chong

    High fiveeee

    The "Oh Cecelia (You're Breaking My Heart)" cover by the youtubers brought me to Patty's channel and HERE I AM NOW :)

  44. Cassidy Jones

    I really like the acoustic music you guys do

  45. Beautifully Red

    Love! c; 

  46. Meghan Brown

    my ovaries just exploded..

  47. Becki Warriner

    vlogs_with_kit

    NO! ME! I AM PATTY'S WIFE!

  48. angelicaaaaaah

    I swear, if it was the early 2000's, we would of all heard these guys on the radio. Love them!

  49. James Todd

    Nasal as fuck singing 

    Son Ken Sama

    I agree, he has a good voice but I often think it would sound better if he used low end cleans pushing from the diaphragm when he sings. 

  50. PunZKatE Chanellx

    My favourite band NO.1 ♥ And this is my favourite song :33
     Respect all band! :))
