​Leading Me Back To You

This song is by Michael Franks, features Joe Sample and appears on the compilation Le Coffret Idéal - Jazz Cool (2011).

I guess I flew too high
Icarus falling from the sky
But in the dense rainforest heat
Somehow I landed on my feet with the will to survive

And in the heart of darkness
Without a chance of rescue
I never quit, I just refused
I thought of you, somehow I know I'd find you

Following my heart's compass
And your love, your love was leading me back to you
Now the ordeal is over, now I can feel your heartbeat
And your love, your love is leading me back to you

Daylight began to show
A jungle painted by Rousseau
I walked around in circles lost
Above the spider monkeys laughed at my failure below

And in the heart of darkness
Without a chance of rescue
I never quit, I just refused
I thought of you, somehow I know I'd find you

Following my heart's compass
And your love, your love was leading me back to you
Now the ordeal is over, now I can feel your heartbeat
And your love, your love is leading me back to you
Your love is leading me back to you
