Stone Dog

Written by David Faraday & Shirley Faraday


Intro

Stone dog, stone dog.


Chorus

The stone dog’s, silent welcome

The stone dog’s, silent welcome

She has no bark or bite, there’ll be no bone

Has no bark or bite, she has no bark or bite,

She’s made of stone.


Verse 1

Looking over the garden of many pebbles,

Rocks, bricks, geometry a heart shaped Yew.

Slow growing, forever knowing,
The stone dog’s granite gaze, she can’t see you.


Verse 2

See a straight path, designer garden keeps,
Tidy, and timeless the weeds elsewhere.
They search, to find home,
While stone dog’s granite gaze,

Oh stone dog’s granite gaze,

Yes, stone dog’s granite gaze, she can’t love you.


Bridge

Oh, the stone dog quietly, patiently and piously waits,
For you to come home silently and recognise the role that she plays.
Her stationary game, leaves the pots in place.
Not hurting not a soul, she just not able to stroll,

She sits in hardened grace.


Verse 3

The stony view of hard edges
Let’s you come home, later and later
To no greeting, no wagging tail
Just the stone dog’s granite gaze, not loving you


Chorus (see above)


Outro

Stone dog, stone dog.

Stone dog.
