A Compromise with Myself

Sometimes a Digression may take on a form I had not intended, and can do more harm then good. In such cases, it is best to keep it close, and seek a compromise with myself instead.

Behold a compromise.

Valparaiso

– Sting

Chase the dog star
Over the sea
Home where my true love is waiting for me
Rope the south wind
Canvas the stars
Harness the moonlight
So she can safely go
Round the cape horn to Valparaiso

Red the port light
Starboard the green
How will she know of the devils Ive seen
Cross in the sky, star of the sea
Under the moonlight, there she can safely go
Round the cape horn to Valparaiso
Valparaiso

And every road I walked would take me down to the sea
With every broken promise in my sack
And every love would always send the ship of my heart
Over the rolling sea

If I should die
And waters my grave
She’ll never know if I’m damned or I’m saved
See the ghost fly over the sea
Under the moonlight, there she can safely go
Round the cape horn to Valparaiso
Valparaiso
