sleeping with the dog lyrics – jethro tull

her love is like a candle: you light it up at night.
her heart is like a pack of cards: one chance to guess it right.
sometimes i do.
she’s got a tongue like a viper, but she can whisper like a dove.
soft touch like brushed velvet: till she hits you from above.
and sometimes she does.

she leaves me breathing: down like a fallen log.
just when i feel like dancing
i wake up sleeping with the dog.
and it goes: (woof) sleeping with the dog.

i have to guess at the mysteries of her unfathomable soul.
guess when the time seems right
to make a broken spirit whole
and that time is due. c’m’on.

she leaves me breathing: down like a fallen log
and just when i feel like dancing
i wake up sleeping with the dog.
and it goes: (woof) sleeping with the dog.
