THE DOG THAT CAUGHT THE CAR
 
She used red she used blue
She painted what she knew
She used black she used white
For shadow and for light
And it moves me just because
No I don't know why it does
Maybe someone I once was

She got high she got low
She moved fast and slow
She went deep into my heart
Like a poisonous dart
And she loved me for a while
So we danced a crooked mile
'Til the tear replaced the smile

I'm the dog that caught the car
I'm the bird that flew too far
I'm the pain behind the scar
I'm the dog that caught the car

He ran hot he ran cold
He put his love on hold
He was sweet he was cruel
He was everybody's fool
And he wanted to perform
In the middle of a storm
There was no way to get warm

I'm the dog that caught the car
I'm the wish upon the star
I'm the pain behind the scar
I'm the dog that caught the car
 
She was gone she was here
Like a ghost behind a mirror
He was smoke she was wind
They were real and pretend
And it tasted bittersweet
Like a rose thrown at your feet
Or a canvas incomplete

I'm the dog that caught the car
I'm the bird that flew too far
I'm the pain behind the scar
I'm the dog
I'm that dog that caught the car
I'm the wish upon the star
I'm the pain behind the scar
I'm the dog that caught the car
