I'll remember you too clearly
But I'll survive another day
Conversations to share
When there's no one there
I'll imagine what you'd say

I'll see you in another life now, baby
I'll free you in my dreams
But when I reach across the galaxy
I will miss your company

Company
I'll be looking for company
Look and listen
Through the years
Someday you may hear me
Still crying for company

So now you're going off to live your life
You say we'll meet each other now and then
But we'll never be the same
And I know I'll never have this chance again
No, not like you

So, I'll see you in another life now baby,
I'll free you in my dreams
But when I reach across the galaxy
I will miss your company

Company
I'll be looking for company
Look and listen
Through the years
Someday you may hear me
Still crying for company

    General CommentThis is a song Rickie wrote about the love of her life, Tom Waits. A beautiful heart breaking son

    "I'll see you in another life, baby."

    "I'll never have this chance again, not like you, not like you!"

    Anyone whose experienced terrible heartbreak can relate to Rickie's beautiful lyrics. This song makes me cry.

    Song Factsherylmac is correct. She wrote this song when she was writing with Alfred Johnson, which was some time before the making of the album, possibly before she had even met Waits, and certainly before their split.

    But that doesn't stop it being a tremendously resonant 'lost-love' lyric. As usual, her imagery is remarkable: searching through space, through time to find some sort of reconciliation. And we can pretend it's about Waits. I would put good money on it that , when she sings it now, she thinks of him, just a little...
