My mother has a map inside her head
Every single turn she's ever tread
Etched in ink upon her skin
Tattooed stains of where she's been
From Kentucky to LA

She's confident until she sees
A forest looms beyond the trees
In a place she doesn't recognize
And it's too dark to read the signs
So she drives the other way

But I'm satisfied to stay
On unfamiliar terrain
My map is in my heart, not my brain

But my mouth is taped shut
I'll just peel it off
It'll hurt, but the pain won't last forever
Everything that I know
In my soul, in my bones
Telling me I'm on the right road

My father has a map inside his phone
All possible directions set in stone
He follows designated lines
Doesn't need to read the signs
He knows the proper way

[rep pre-c + c]

Her magnet's off and his needle's bent
But they're too proud to see
I have my own compass and I'll
Follow where it leads

[rep c]

Even if it's facing far from home
