Kicked A Dog To Death

When that hound
Came around
The first time
It was wagging its tail
We were all smiles
We were all smitten
No one could know
I'd kick the dog to death

Oh when we lay out on the beach
Burning in the sun
The wind playing tricks
On the heat we thought we felt
Another of nature's illusions

There was no way to guess
I'd kick that dog to death

I made a joke
You made a mess

I Saw My Future

While you were grieving for love gone
I was pouring us a cup of tea so warm
You're freshly free but still feeling sore
It's much too soon to confess my wants

I've been sitting in this hotel room for so long
I keep thinking I hear the phone ringing
But it's not
I keep thinking I see the sun rising
But it's not
It's just the sea
Playing its tricks on me

I say too much on the subject
I dwell too long on the subject
Can't shake your face
Can't shake your name from my head
