  • 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
    And when it comes to love, I'm just another fool
    Yes, I'll climb 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
    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 it's you alright
    When I take your 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
    I got a true companion
    Oh, a 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'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
    True companion
