Dumb As Me

A labrador face, looks right in its place on the pillow beside my head

Glassy old eyes and floppy ears rise when I say "we should get out of bed."

There's still time for a scritch at the morning itch then it's upstairs to see what we'll see

I smile through the groans of our weary old bones, you're the same kind of dumb as me

Yes you are, you're the same kind of dumb as me


Chasing the ball bouncing off of the wall on the court or down on the green

Stopped more than we go, we say hello to every new face on the scene

But seeing them smile makes it all worthwhile, how you make friends so effortlessly

Trusting the care of the love that they share, you're the same kind of dumb as me

Yes you are, you're the same kind of dumb as me


A decade of loyalty treated like royalty at daily reunifications

Wishing that I just deserved you and trying to live up to your expectations


You belonged to me, true, but I belonged to you too, heart, mind and soul

Each other's own, we were never alone, two halves of one ridiculous whole

Trying to wish it away could not forestall the day you would go on at last and be free

You could not say goodbye, but I understand why, cause you're the same kind of dumb as me

Yes you are, you're the same kind of dumb as me
