When I Said I Wanted to Be Your Dog

This song is by Jens Lekman and appears on the album When I Said I Wanted to Be Your Dog (2004).

Every day you make a fine loaf of bread
And after work just before sunset
You head down to the city park
There you're alone with the birds in the dark

And I've seen other people do that too
But they're old and you're 22
They lost hope and soon they'll be gone
They'll just vanish with the setting sun

But I know, yes I know,
They're flying within you again,
But I won't let them get you
'Cause you're my only friend
You're my only friend

When I said I wanted to be your dog
I wasn't coming on to you
I just wanted to lick your face
Lick those raindrops from the rainy days

You can take me for a walk in the park
I'll be chasing every single lark
I'll be burying all the skeleton bones
Peeing on every cold black stone

But I know, yes I know,
They're flying within you again,
But I won't let them eat you
'Cause you're my only friend
My friend
My only friend
You're my friend
