Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot

Sting

 

I’ve loved watching Sting evolve as an artist and as a person through his music.  I find it so cool that the guy who wrote the beautiful lyrics below for his 1996, Mercury Falling disc, also wrote the song So Lonely in 1978.  I guess he learned to let his SOUL guide him.

 

Let your soul be your pilot

Let your soul guide you

He’ll guide you well

When you’re down and they’re counting

When your secrets all found out

When your troubles take to mounting

When the map you have leads you to doubt

When there’s no information

And the compass turns to nowhere that you know well

Let your soul be your pilot

Let your soul guide you

He’ll guide you well

When the doctors failed to heal you

When no medicine chest can make you well

When no counsel leads to comfort

When there are no more lies they can tell

No more useless information

And the compass spins

The compass spins between heaven and hell

Let your soul be your pilot

Let your soul guide you

He’ll guide you well

And your eyes turn towards the window pane

To the lights upon the hill

The distance seems so strange to you now

And the dark room seems so still

Let your pain be my sorrow

Let your tears be my tears too

Let your courage be my model

That the north you find will be true

When there’s no information

And the compass turns to nowhere that you know well

Let your soul be your pilot

Let your soul guide you

Let your soul guide you

Let your soul guide you upon your way…
