April Dogs

lyrics

It doesn’t happen every day
Now the words are wrong, it’s nothing I’m writing
Just the things I try to say
Nothing fits the song, the dogs just keep fighting

Outside my window the snow is falling
Outside my door stands you
I don’t see the logic
You were safe in my pocket
Why do you insist on riding in my shoe
where I might step on you

Now it’s time to change the song
If you can’t change the bridge then lower the water
Maybe then the chords are wrong
The image I created might not have caught her

Outside my window the snow is falling
Outside my door stands you
I don’t see the logic
You were safe in my pocket
Why do you insist on riding in my shoe
where I might step on you

That’s not the kind of song I write
Maybe if I change you, you’ll fit the music
If the dogs begin to bite
We can change the melody as we choose it

I will protect you just stand behind me
You will be safe from the April Dogs
I don’t see us running
Soon spring will have sprung
and the April Dogs will vanish into the fog
Somewhere in the song
