"Companion (lay Me Down)" as written by and Shaun Matthew/pereira Verreault....
When I saw the reflection of the sky
In the pools of water we drove by
In the ditch on the side of the road
On the way to the bridge where looking down just right
Oh it felt like we were moving

Then I caught the waves wrinkle the moon
And they kissed my body just beyond the shore
I talked you into a stone and skipped you across the water
But it was me who was really sinking

Lay me down
Down on the bottom
Come crashing over me
You'll be a dancer as I walk beside you

Then I saw the buildings leaning in
To touch heads where the yellow lines run
Looking down on the fool slowly walking
What did he feel like he was proving

Lay me down
Down on the bottom
Come crashing over me
You'll be a dancer as I try to catch you,

Lay me down
Down on the bottom
Come crashing over me
You'll be a dancer as I walk beside you,
A dancer as I walk beside you,

    General CommentI get the feeling he's looking back, and remembering good times.
    Or saying how great it was, but how the relationship with this person didnt last because of him. Hense the "But it was me who was really sinking"
    Not quite sure.

    General CommentThis is possibly one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Definitely under rated. Would not be surprised to hear a remake in the near future.
