There's something with the way you walk
There's something there that lights a spark inside of me
And it makes me want to sing
Makes me forget everything
There's something there inside your eyes
Lets me know you'd never lie
You fill me up and I know what you need
Do you know what you mean to me?


Well I watch you sleep sometimes and it feels like the first time
And you're always on my mind
Everyday is like the first day
And I talk to you sometimes even though you never talk back
And I buy you things sometimes 'cause I don't mind

There's something strange, I can't get mad
Even when you're being bad - just look at me, and I forget everything
I try but I can't be mean
You sit by me and I scratch your back
You lick my hands then I get a rash, but that's okay
Because we, we are a team
You make a mess and then I clean

Well I watch you sleep sometimes and it feels like the first time
And you're always on my mind
Everyday is like the first day
And I talk to you sometimes even though you never talk back
And I buy you things sometimes 'cause I don't mind

There's something with the way you act
Makes me laugh when you chase the cats
You chase 'em around
And when it's close to feeding time, you stare at me and whine
You won't lay down, you'll hardly sit
I give you a bath when you smell like shit
But you don't mind
And we go out every now and then
And when you're done then we come back in

Well I watch you sleep sometimes and it feels like the first time
And you're always on my mind
Everyday is like the first day
And I talk to you sometimes even though you never talk back
And I buy you things sometimes 'cause I don't mind
Yeah I don't mind
Yeah I don't mind

    General CommentI had a friend who listened to this song on a mix tape I gave him, and it took him like a month and he called and was like "That song is about a DOG!!!". lol, its a great song though, reminds me of my dog who just recently passed away. :( but its good

    General Commenti like how it got radio play and seemed like a poppy love song to those who are retarded

    General CommentWow...I realized it was about a dog in a few days when I finally understood everything they were saying. At first though, I could only understand the chorus (Well I watch you sleep sometimes and it feels like the first time And you're always on my mind Everyday is like the first day And I talk to you sometimes even though you never talk back
    And I buy you things sometimes 'cause I don't mind) And I thought the song was hilarious because I thought they were making fun of stalkers. Then I understood with (You lick my hands then I get a rash) and (I give you a bath when you smell like shit) that it was about a dog. I was a bit disappointed, but I still like the song. As much as I love this band though, I wish their lyrics were less obvious so it would be worth it to interpret them. There isn't really anything in any song to interpret as far as meanings go.

    General Commenti thought this was like the nicest song ever for ages

    then i sent the lyrics to my sister, who told me it was about a dog, then i listened to the song again and it made a hell of alot more sense

    plus the barking at the end gives it away a little

    General Commentwait.. he sings about cats and "when you smell like shit" and people still thought it was about a guy/girl?

    thats great.

    the chorus is still applicable to a relationship though. and kinda sweet... which is kinda twisted... which makes this a great song.

    My Opinioni think he's pointing out how little the typical love songs actually mean... you could sing them to your dog and mean much the same thing.
