  • I found a map and it broke my heart
    I didn't know that I'd ever go this far
    With a compass point driving ink into my arm
    The father, son and the holy ghost
    Don't talk too much, never been that close
    Pouring spirits while I follow the Northern star

    And as the birds fly south
    I've been missing a small house
    That holds all my words in precious store
    I found your message at the bottom of a bottle
    Come back to where the streets are paved with stone

    I believe in you
    You believe in me
    You're the lighthouse in the storm
    I've believe it's true
    I can follow you
    Back to where the streets are paved with stone

    I'd swap the scent of open ocean
    There for the factory steel and the engineers
    Well I'm coming back to something beautiful
    All the noise and all the lights
    Are all the things I'd sacrifice
    I'd trade it for the way you make me feel

    And as the days they pass
    Falling through the hour glass
    Used to be beneath my feet along the shore
    I find your message lying at the bottom of a bottle
    Come back to where the streets are paved with stone

    I believe in you
    You believe in me
    You're the lighthouse in the storm
    I believe it's true
    I can follow you
    Back to where the streets are paved with stone

    Once around the world (x3)
    Back to you
    Once around the world (x3)
    Back to you

    I believe in you
    You believe in me
    You're the lighthouse in the storm
    I believe it's true
    I can follow you
    Back to where the streets are payed with stone (x2)

    Once around the world,
    Once around the world

    Back to where the streets are paved in stone (x2) Writer/s: JAMES OLIVER RICHARD FLANNIGAN, LUCY HONOUR RUBY SPRAGGAN, SAMUEL DYLAN MURPHY PRESTON, Samuel Dylan Murray Preston
