"True Companion"
Marc Cohn

Baby, I've been searching like everybody else
Can't say nothin' different about myself
Sometimes I'm an angel and sometimes I'm cruel
When it comes to love, I'm just another fool

Yes I'll climb a mountain
I'm gonna swim the sea
There aint no act of God, girl
Could keep you safe from me

My arms are reaching out
Out across this canyon
I'm asking you to be my true companion
True companion

So don't you dare and try to walk away;
I've got my heart set on our wedding day.
I've got this vision of a girl in white
Made my decision that its you all right.

And when I take you hand,
I'll watch my heart set sail.
I'll take my trembling fingers
And I'll lift up your veil.

Then I'll take you home,
And with wild abandon
Make love to you just like a true companion
You are my true companion

When the years have done irreparable harm,
I can see us waking slowly arm in arm,
Just like that couple on the corner do,
'Cause girl I will always be in love with you.

And when I look in your eyes,
I'll still see that spark,
Until the shadows fall,
Until the room grows dark.

Then when I leave this earth,
I'll be with the angels standin';
I'll be out there waiting for my true companion
Just for my true companion
