This song is by Gavin Castleton and appears on the album Dark Age (2004).

I wasn't looking for a savior when you first showed up
I was just hoping you would calm down once you were all grown up and
You were a little bit of terror, taken care of by six convicts in a castle by the park
You used to run away until dark, and only started coming back when we stopped chasing after
You spend most nights tucked into my legs like a flea bite
Nuzzling my knees like a furry puzzle piece I
Match my breathing to yours and let our snoring compete
By the time I wake up you're tangled in my feet.
If they didn't stink I would think it's kind of sweet -
The silent partner makes my ground floor complete.

And though I walk through the valley of shadows alone
I have a hard time believing you have valleys of your own
And that's the sickness of it all-
I really love you because you exist only for me,
The only one who listens and agrees at all times,
The only fine I pay is belly scratching
