I remember coming home from the babysitter when I was little and my dad would have Marc Cohen blaring all through the house.
I love those memories and those songs (Walking in Memphis will always be an all time fav…).
Today’s Music Monday is brought to you by the talented Mr. Cohen and his guitar.
True Companion is simple, beautiful and to the point:
“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 descision that its you alright…”
Here’s a video of the song live, the downloadable track is at the end of the post.
Baby I’ve been searching like everybody else
Can’t say nothing different about myself
Sometimes I’m an angel and sometimes I’m cruel
But when it comes to love I’m just another fool
Yes I’ve climbed a mountain
I’m gonna swim the sea
There ain’t 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
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 descision that its you alright
When I take your hand, I 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
I got a true companion
Whoa true companion
When the years have done irreparable harm
I can see us walking slowly arm in arm,
Just like that couple on the corner do
Cause girl I will always be in love with you
When I look in your eyes, I 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 standing
I’ll be out there waiting for my true companion
Just for my true companion
Lovely. There’s no doubt about it.
