Dog Day Afternoon

by Rollie Barrett | Nomad Ballads

Sometimes when I lie awake I can feel the world take shape

into these things that I did not wish for

But that’s alright cause I can change and make all these things rearrange into

something better for you..ah yeah

And its a dog day afternooohooooohoon

Leave it all behind we ain’t got nothing left to  lose

And it’s a dog day afternoon

I think I’ll stay in bed just staring at you, cause your beautiful, oh so beautiful to me

And then sometimes you’d dream awake just sittin there watching my world take shape

into nothing but this foolish dreaming

But thats alright cause I’m ok ain’t goin anywhere anyway and

anyway all I want is you

And its a dog day afternooohooooohooon

Not a care in the world just sittin hear watching your flowers bloom

And it’s a dog day afternoon

I think Ill stay in bed cause your beautiful, oh so beautiful too me….oh so beautiful

Verse 3/Pre-Bridge

And then sometimes we’d dream awake just sittin here watching her world take shape

and just like everyone else she gives and she taaaaakes

And we build these things up just to watch them all break

We trip and fall twice and still call them mistakes

We curse at the world when everything’s great

Never thankful for the breath that we taaaaaaake

And its a dog day afternoohooooohoon

Not a care in the world just sittin hear watching your flowers bloom

And it’s a dog day afternoon

I think I’ll stay in bed just staring at you, cause your beautiful, oh so beautiful to me…oh so beautiful

And its a dog day afternoohooooohoon

Leave it all behind we ain’t got nothing left to  lose

And it’s a dog day afternoon

I think I’ll stay in bed just staring at you, cause your beautiful, oh so beautiful to me…oh so beautiful

Sometimes when I lie awake

I can watch the world take shape
