I was inspired by Briget Boyle to write more lyrics this year, so I took my guitar and just sang my heart out. The dog part is true, the girl part not so much.


There’s this boy down in my street
I don’t really know his name
He always comes down to my house
And plays with my dog

There’s this girl in my school
Who I really like
She carries her books close to her chest
She has the most beautiful smile

One day I’m gonna ask her out
One day I’m gonna figure out
How things work

One day I had to leave town
I left my dog behind
It was the saddest day in 15 years
Of an entire life

I never told the girl in class
The way I felt for her
And my old dog stayed with the boy
That lived down in my street

One day I’m coming back for you
One day I’m telling you
How I feel

So many years have passed by
So many farewells and goodbyes
I fell in love with many other girls
I got lost in many different tries

I still remember my old dog
I saw him many years ago
As for the girl that was my love
She had her second son, a boy named Joe

One day I’m coming back for you
One day I’m telling you
How I feel
And everything I’ve seen
