Compass and Companion
Mark Erelli


Out here on this road just after midnight
Silver sickle rising in the east
I'm steady on the wheel
But I know just how you feel
So just lean back and try to catch some sleep

Go to sleep my darling
There's just a fingernail moon up above
Go to sleep my darling
Am I the one you'll be dreaming of

To think of every backroad we have travelled
Of all the restless miles we have run
Should you chance to find a trace
Of a smile on my face
I'm just thinking of the miles we've still come

Go to sleep my darling
There's just a fingernail moon up above
Go to sleep my darling
Am I the one you'll be dreaming of

To me you are a compass and companion
You follow me down every road I ride
Wherever I may roam
I'm already home
As long as you are travelling by my side

Go to sleep my darling
There's just a fingernail moon up above
Go to sleep my darling
Am I the one you'll be dreaming of...

Am I the one that you'll be dreaming of






well, as some of you know, not so off topic really.

Mark played at our small offeehouse, and getting to work with him and see him in the small setting was such a pleasure. One of the last times I saw Dave Carter, Mark was singing with them, and Tracy sang harmony with him on this - possibly my very favorite of his songs. I hope to see him sing next weekend, and this song has been in my head all day.
