Broken Compass

Woke up a little lost today,
Pieces of glass sting my feet
All because of that broken compass back in yesterday.

Feels like there's no place worth going to.
Trying to figure out,
If there will ever be a new reason to be this high.
Then again, in life,
You are never loved twice the same.
