"Gone To The Dogs" as written by and Tunstall....
Since you've been gone
Gone to the dogs
In a roundabout way
You're still sing, singing along
I can see it in your face

Everywhere you go
It goes with you
Takes part of you
Never lets you go at it alone
But if it would
I know you could be so much more than this
And life could be bliss

But now you're gone
Gone to the dogs
And I don't know you like I did

So why don't you say
Say it out loud
All these things you hold inside of yourself
Holding on tight
As if you're frightened of the ride

And everywhere you go
I'm there with you
Still part of you
I'll never let you feel all alone
But if you do I'll make sure you are standing on your feet
'Cause life could be sweet

But now you're gone
Gone to the dogs
And I don't know you like I did

And I try
I try to hold you up
And I'll never let you down
And I do my best
When I try to hold you up
And I never let you down
You let yourself down
Let me down, oh

Oh now you're gone
Gone to the dogs
And I don't know you like I did

    General CommentThis is my favourite KT song ever. my take on it is that it's about letting go of your loved one who has lost their spark, or become depressed and you know you can't do anything for them any more because it just hurts you too much to be so let down and helpless. beautifully sad song with fantastic vocal from KT.

    General CommentI think is perhaps similar to Funnyman in meaning? Or is that just way too obvious...
