Putting the Dog to Sleep

by The Antlers

The Antlers is an indie rock band currently based in Brooklyn, New York, fronted by Peter Silberman.




Prove to me
I'm not gonna die alone
Put your arm 'round my collar bone
And open the door

Don't lie to me
If you're putting the dog to sleep
That pet you just couldn't keep
And couldn't afford

Well, prove to me
I'm not gonna die alone
Unstitch that shed-off soul
To close up the hole, that tore through my skin

Well my trust in you
Is a dog with a broken leg
Tendons too torn to beg
For you to let me back in

You said I can't prove to you
You're not gonna die alone
But trust me to take you home
To clean up that blood all over your paws

You can't keep running out
Kicking yourself off the bed
Kicking yourself in the head
Because you're kicking me too

Put your trust in me
I'm not gonna die alone
Put your trust in me
I'm not gonna die alone
I don't think so

Put your trust in me
I'm not gonna die alone
Put your trust in me
I'm not gonna die alone
I don't think so
