    So last night FI and I are busting our butts to get our wood flooring installed when this song comes on the radio that I heard once before but could never find, nor ever heard again. So all hammering and nailing stops, and we turn the radio up. This morning I get to work and google 'true companion'. Turns out we might have found our wedding song! It's great. Here are the lyrics

    True Companion - Marc Cohn

    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 allright
    And 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
    True companion

    When the years have done irreparable harm
    I can see us walking slowly arm in arm
    Just like the 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
    True companion
    True companion

      Great song- Delilah (I think she's syndicated?) used to play it all the time. One of my favorites!

        I also love this song. Good pick.
        I tried to convince my FH to have this as our song as well but he disagreed. It makes me cry when I listen to it. So it'll make our playlist for later in the evening.

          I picked it for my Best Friend to use as her first dance song, lol so I can't use it as mine. FH does not like it anyway, thinks its cheesy. I think its beautiful.

                  This is going to be our song!! :) My Fiance played it for me as he has the Marc Cohn CD and we both started crying and both loved it. It's the background music on our wedding website!
