I would've been your dog
I would've licked your wounds
I would've fucked my dignity
just to lie in the shadow of you

but now these months apart
have changed my point of view:
I used to hang on every word,
and now I hang up on you

and I don't care,
though I know I should;
though you're not happy,
and you're not well,
I wouldn't keep you warm if I could

I've got a lover now
(or at least I did)
and he taught me that a love like ours
is nothing but fetching a stick

and I would've been your dog
I would've caught your fleas
I would've cried, and licked your palms
just to see you come home to me

Watching you get sick,
I sit by the toilet
I bring you a water glass,
and help them put your drunk ass
in bed – Sick of this party too,
I lie down next to you
Up with the morning sun,
I find my goodwill's gone, and

I don't care
though I s'pose this isn't the end
I would've been your dog
and now I'm tired of being your friend (your best friend)

Yes I would've been your daw-aw-awg
and now I'm tired of being your friend
