Loving eyes, danger zone
Broken spirit, still alone
Treacherous traffic, tired, worn
Nobody stops, heart is torn
Want to trust, eat a meal
feel a touch, hear my name
winter cold, summer heat
A human friend is all I need.
Pick me up, take care of me,
Renew my spirit, set me free
I am a street dog, lost and cold
Longing for the love –
I promise to return – tenfold.
