A Dog With No Place To Stay

I'm kind of a shy and quiet, sweet loving guy whose loneliness you won't often see But still I'll survive, as time goes by and my heart just hangs by a string If only I could show you, my silly little world it would remove that smile right from your face There is no shiny gold, sparkling diamonds or pearls just a lost dog with no place to stay All my hopes have been tossed, my mind has been lost don't know if I can go on another day I've got nothing left to loose, no more time left to snooze don't know why I keep living life this way Still each morning I wake up, unable to get enough of this same life, I live every day I've got only this life to loose, maybe it's time for me to choose if I should keep carrying on this same way Tomorrow I'll still be, that shy and quiet, sweet loving guy whose loneliness you will never feel I'll still be alive, as time still tic's by I guess that's just part of life's deal Now if only I could show you, my silly, lonely little world that would remove that smile right from your face No money or fancy cars, sparkling diamonds or pearls Just a forgotten dog with no place to stay
Danny Boy:9-19-13 Yup... Another one of those songs

    - If you are talking about DOG - THE DOG! - Here I see reality as dogs you are talking about (in Turkey) - They go here with the tail between the legs, head bowed, ears down ... but still wary. -Some may be missing a foot or an ear, open bloody wounds ... it is awful to see ... They are afraid and shy. - Wish all got room in my suitcase. - Sad .... sad ..... sad ... - Well written, Dan. - oxox / / f.e.f. Anne-Lise :)
