love dog lyrics – tv on the radio

lonely little love dog that
no one knows the name of
i know why you cry out
desperate and devout

timid little teether
your eyes set on the ether
your moon in a bella luna and
howling hallelujah

nameless you above me
come lay me low and love me
this lonely little love dog
that no one knows the name of

curse me out in free verse
wrap me up and reverse this
patience is a virtue
until it’s silence burns you

and something slow
has started in me as
shameless as an ocean
mirrored in devotion

something slow
has sparked up in me
as dog cries for a master
sparks are whirling faster

lonely little love dog
that no one knows the ways of
where the land is low is
where the bones will show through

lonely little love dog
that no one knows the days of
where the land is low is
where the water flows to
and holds you
