Steve Hackett - Set Your Compass Lyrics




Underneath a sailing moon
Lemon lime ginger soft glow
Scale the woodland around the dale
Rising falling through hedgerows
With her train the queen of night
(Her pale window)
(Calming your fear)
(With the Earth)
Slowly turning the tide (in the lowland)
From the long arms of the sea
Set your compass by your dream (falling)
Grazing sheep have lost their way
Fifty fathoms below the bay

Windward of the sunken rock (blowing)
Faces set like gravestones (staring down)
Oarsmen pull to cleave the brine
Neath the blackcliffs their cross-bones
Under the waves and put to right
Toy armies too rusty to fight (in the lowland)
Cling to the wheel how deeply you breathe
Set your compass by your dream (falling)
Grazing sheep have lost their way
Fifty fathoms below the bay

Steve Hackett Set Your Compass Comments
  1. David Ferman

    This delicious sound is a real speciality of Steve. It takes me back to the Genesis days and "Entangled". A melody like this always catches my attention and with the nautical flavour, this song is a beautiful uplifting theme....

    A brilliant song by Steve Hackett (2006). Thanks for sharing here on youtube. I'll be sure to share the song and add to my Progressive rock playlist and Best of 2000 to 2007 music playlist.
