The Antlers – Putting The Dog To Sleep lyrics

Prove to me I'm not gonna die alone.
Put your arm around my collarbone
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 (shit?) I've sewn 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 palms.
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(2x)
I don't think so.

Put your trust in me, I'm not gonna die alone(2x)
I don't think so.
