Every Song Sung to a Dog  Fred Thomas


[E]So that?s it?
[B]Eternity equates to fore[F#]ver walking towards without arriving any place?
With s[A]ome beasts leashed
And the rest so hung up on the ma[F#]jesty of having two functioning feet
Don?t[E] con yourself with comfort
Don?t ta[B]lk about the future
In the fur p[F#]atch shaved and sutured, in the tangle of tubes where I lose you
Everythi[A]ng is changed
And the [F#]rest of us remain
So [E]could we exchange our lifespans?
Or w[B]ould that be a sh*tty deal?
My [F#]eight potential decades, sloppy, selfish and unreal
For your t[G#m]hirteen years of w[F#]alking in one clear, pure l[E]ine
[G#m]Even with all this ridiculous talking
[F#]Even with all this ridiculous talking
[G#m]Even with all this ridiculous talking
[F#]Even with all this ridiculous talking
[B]I can never get through and I c[F#]an?t get any help
I can just s[G#m]tand here in front of you and emb[F#]arrass myself[C#]
So d[E]rag me out of the river in a ba[B]ckwards baptism
Take it ba[F#]ck to the beginning
To make sure there?s no revisions and we are all o[A]f one mind
While we wat[F#]ch this reel rewind
And I see myself there c[E]ompletely lightweight wasted on like a sin[B]gle drink
In 2003 in Baltimor[F#]e, smashing my first flip-phone on some p**s-soaked alley floor corridor
[A]Crimes of the heart, crimes of the convenience store
[F#]A whole history of crimes felt more important at that time
[G#m]I see them all from last to first [F#]as they play out in reverse[B] [E]
I get to find [G#m]everything I ever lost, I ge[F#]t to uncast every curse[B] [E]
See every upt[G#m]urned motorcycle, every pag[F#]e from every bible[B] [E]
All my aci[G#m]d stomach mornings and my nigh[F#]ts of deep survival[B] [E]
See those ho[G#m]rses in the stables, teenage t[F#]ears and jumper cables[B] [E]
See me ratt[G#m]led and insane from all the ch[F#]anges strange and mangled[B] [E]
See that nev[G#m]er-ending room filled up with e[F#]verything consumed
A pile of ever[B]ything consumed to fill a nev[E]er-ending room
Hear every s[G#m]ong sung to a [F#]dog on every wa[B]lk with every d[E]og
[F#]Yeah, every song sung to a dog on every walk with every dog [B]
