​Staring Down The Dog

This song is by Wes King and appears on the album What Matters Most (2001).

Ow, my fingers are starting to hurt
Sorry

When I fear the future and what it might be
I miss the present and all the beauty
Heaven sent, there it went
More time and effort goes into trying
Trying just to get by and I'm slowly dying
I'm in the mood for a new attitude

I'm staring down the dog
Well, I'm not running anymore
Well, I've been scared too long
This time, I will endure it
I will be strong
I'm staring down the dog

Well, I was a young boy out on a journey
Well, my mama loved me, but she was not with me
When I heard the barking on North Fifth Avenue
I was outnumbered, four legs to two
Amazing grace, I won that race
But now

I'm staring down the dog
Well, I'm not running anymore
Well, I've been scared too long
This time, I will endure it
I will be strong
I'm staring down the dog, yeah

I'm staring down the dog
Well, I'm not running anymore, no, no
Well, I've been scared too long
This time, I will endure it
I will be strong
I'm staring down

Well, I'm staring down the dog
And I'm not running anymore, no, no
I've been scared too long
This time, I will endure it
I will be strong, I'm staring down
I will be strong, I'm staring down
I will be strong
I'm staring down the dog
