Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

A lost dog's christmas

This song was created for Game of Bands round 132 : "Christmas"


Cold, tired and hungry he has no home
one of countless forgotten souls,
he's all alone,

no where to go, no where to sleep
The icy city concrete numbs,
his aching feet

You may have your winter coat,
but that doesn't mean to this way of life you're underwrote

Steadfast look forward young blue eyes,
No doubt would if you could but dogs can't cry

House by house,
well lit rooms,
joyous smiles surround, plush Christmas trees

apparently none of this is meant for me

There's a man,
in his way,
long dark coat,
must get away,
but he can't
for he's too weak,
slumps to the ground,
a faded sleep,

a memory stirs he's in his arms,

soaked, shivering and alarmed,

beyond threshold a wall of warmth,
gently placed down beside
the hearth

slowly the fear subsides,
accepting the heat, from the fire inside

Fresh food and water to him was plied,
he can't cry but there's a tear in his eye

as it seems his Christmas wish,
has been delivered from st nicks list

come inside and dry your winter coat,

all his heart and love he'll give you the most

so on this most very special day,
open your hearts, your door and show them the way
