about

"Companion" was inspired by the current incarnation of the TV show Doctor Who. It's sung from the point of view of Rose, the Companion in 2005 and 2006... or from anyone who's been the companion of someone inspiring and incredible in their life.

For those studying at home: "Companion" is the song about The Doctor, and "Apprentice" is the song about the Companion. That's going to be on the test.

lyrics

Companion
by Michelle Dockrey & Tony Fabris

Once upon a time, there was an ordinary girl
Narrow little life in a narrow little world
And in the doorway there you stood
We ran away that night, and then we ran away for good
You can feel the turning of the earth
You can feel each and every life and what it's worth
And mine will never be the same
Since the day that I first heard you say my name

And we've all the time in the world (Time for laughter, time for tears)
All the time in the world (A voyage measured out in years)
All the time in the world (Love and joy and vanity)
All the time in the world (Genius and humanity)
With a tool in hand and a gleeful grin
You opened the door and you let me in
Wherever you go, that's where I'll be
Companion to the man who holds the key

You are the door to all the worlds that turn
I never imagined just how much I could learn
Time and space and fire and steel
All these things are magic, and magic is real
If it's never been done, you ask why not
Was it ever impossible? You just forgot
You're the universe's own child at play
You take my hand and you take me, you take me away

And we've all the time in the world (Time for pleasure, time for pain)
All the time in the world (Face the wind and face the rain)
All the time in the world (Sun and storm and mystery)
All the time in the world (Arguing with history)
With a tool in hand and a gleeful grin
You opened the door and you let me in
Wherever you go, that's where I'll be
Companion to the man who holds the key

You're arrogant and troublesome, impetuous and vain
Yet you love your fellow creatures with a joy you can't explain
There's loneliness in genius, and a price to pay for power
But there's me
By your side
Every hour

We dance in the future and we walk the past
The hours last a lifetime, but the years, they go so fast
We laugh at the storm and stare into the sun
The secret of our story is the story's never done
And when the wolf is at the door
I look in your eyes and I don't fear it anymore
So hold my hand and step on through
And let me see the universe with you

And we've all the time in the world (Time for reason, time for chance)
All the time in the world (Learn to play and learn to dance)
All the time in the world (Trust in you and trust in me)
All the time in the world (Imagination is the key)
With a tool in hand and a gleeful grin
You opened the door and you let me in
Wherever you go, that's where I'll be
Companion to the man who holds the key

All the time in the world (Anything is possible)
All the time in the world (Anything is possible)
