they had a dog in the boat
for it to bark
at the water above you
but you weren't there
they searched all night
they lit up the woods
they looked in buildings
abandoned and old

and they said
it's time for you to go to bed
but I stayed up late
and wondered about
the dog in the boat
what was its name
was it cold or afraid
so intense and concentrated
the impression it gave

they found you next morning
the commotion died down
a misunderstanding
so everything's fine

and they said
it's time for you to go to bed
but I stayed up late
and wondered about
the dog in the boat
what was its name
was it cold or afraid
so intense and concentrated
the impression it gave
