Dogs

 I was hungry and I was cold, had a father far too old
 Couldn't make it to the place he'd like to be
 In a treetrunk in the park, he was living in the dark
 Keeping other dogs like him for company
 In the evening I'd go down to a nightclub in the town
 Try to get some bread to make another way
 Back to the park I'd go, dig him out of the snow
 You know he's lived a thousand years day to day
 Well, the days get shorter and the nights get longer
 And you never learn to know
 If you love one another, could you look at each other
 Could it ever really show
 And at this moment in time you couldn't make up your mind
 Now could you ever understand
 Are you following me just like Moses to the sea
 Do you think I'll give you freedom in the end
 When I'm long dead and gone will your love for me go on
 Will I be the one you run to in the end
 And all my dogs need a friend
 It was a quarter to three in the summer of '73
 When I heard somebody call outside my door
 Said "Are you friend or are you foe"
 He looked up and he said "no, but I'd like to come inside and know you more"
 Well the days get shorter and the nights get longer
 And you never learn to know
 If you love one another, could you look at each other
 Could it ever really show
 And at this moment in time you couldn't make up your mind
 Now could you ever understand
 Are you following me just like Moses to the sea
 Do you think I'll give you freedom in the end
 When I'm long dead and gone will your love for me go on
 Will I be the one you run to in the end
 And all my dogs need a friend
 Need a friend
 Need a friend
