I found God 
On the corner of First and Amistad 
Where the west 
Was all but won 
All alone 
Smoking his last cigarette 
I said, Where you been? 
He said, Ask anything. 

Where were you 
When everything was falling apart? 
All my days 
Were spent by the telephone 
That never rang 
And all I needed was a call 
It never came 
To the corner of First and Amistad 

Lost and insecure 
You found me, you found me 
Lying on the floor 
Surrounded, surrounded 
Why’d you have to wait? 
Where were you, where were you? 
Just a little late 
You found me, You found me 

In the end 
Everyone ends up alone 
Losing her 
The only one who’s ever known 
Who I am 
Who I’m not, and who I want to be 
No way to know 
How long she will be next to me 

Lost and insecure 
You found me, you found me 
Lying on the floor 
Surrounded, surrounded 
Why’d you have to wait? 
Where were you, where were you? 
Just a little late 
You found me, You found me 

Early morning 
The city breaks 
I’ve been calling 
For years and years and years and years 
And you never left me no messages 
You never sent me no letters 
You got some kind of nerve 
Taking all I want 

Lost and insecure 
You found me, you found me 
Lying on the floor 
Where were you, where were you? 

Lost and insecure 
You found me, you found me 
Lying on the floor 
Surrounded, surrounded 
Why’d you have to wait? 
Where were you, where were you? 
Just a little late 
You found me, You found me 

Why’d you have to wait 
To find me, to find me?

“I love him because he’s my compass.” She said.

“What do you mean he’s your compass?” He asked.

“Well, for someone like me, after everything I’ve been through.. it’s easy to get caught up in the dark stuff. It’s easy to get lost in all the pain of the past and assume the worst of everyone.

It’s easy to assume that everyone wants to  hurt me and that everyone will hurt me. It’s easy to allow the waves of sadness and depression over power me but then I look at him, I think about him and it reminds me that there are good people in this world.

It’s like.. no matter how sad I get.. or how scared.. or how many times I try to run away, he always guides me back to a happier place, a  brighter place, a place I never thought existed without him. He always leads me back home, despite how lost I may get at times, he’s my compass.” She admitted. 

“Who would have ever thought that my compass would have stars for eyes and a devilish smile.” She said with a smile on her face.
