lyrics

I don't know how I do this anymore
Arthritic joints are aching
My paws slippin’ on the floor
But my hungry eyes fall onto yours
And I can breathe ok
I appreciate your taking in a stray

And nowadays my life's been slowing down
No longer run too fast, I can't be walking across town
But you're my people and I'll follow,
So take me where you may
I know you'd never lead me astray

Through all the times I wandered
Without a happy home
And all the nights I huddled fast asleep
I slowly made my way to you; we'll never be alone
Hold fast to you as close as I can keep

I know you're hiding pills in all that cheese
And it's nice the way you stretch my legs so I can walk with ease
And you slide a jumper on me just to keep the chill at bay
So I don't have to feel like a stray

Through all the times I wandered
Without a happy home
And all the nights I huddled fast asleep
I slowly made my way to you; we'll never be alone
Hold fast to you as close as I can keep

I worry when you have to leave my friend
And my old tail still wags so hard when you've returned again
And we still share a moment’s peace when everything's ok
I hope your travels never leave you astray

Through all the times I wandered
Without a happy home
And all the nights I huddled fast asleep
I slowly made my way to you; we'll never be alone
Hold fast to you as close as I can keep
Hold fast to you as close as I can keep
Hold fast to you as close as I can keep
