On my new album I wrote a song for my dog Marvin called THE KINDLY BEAST. When Marvin was put to sleep in June, I wrote lyrics for him, AND another song to go with it. Unfortunately.. I can’t sing it because EVERY FREAKN time I try, I end up crying my eyes out… so here are the lyrics… I will share the music later.
LAST DRIVE – Kori Linae Carothers © 2015
Its my last drive,
I know she’s sad…
but my body’s in pain…
Her eyes are filled with tears,
I know I gave all I can.
She took care of me, when I needed her
They all love me too.
I will miss them so..
My tail is tired, I can’t stand right
Its hard for me to breathe.
I try to walk, she picks me up,
Holds me and tells me she can let me go…
I feel her arms holding me tight,
I feel her tears drop on my fur…
Its his last drive, the wind is blowing through his fur..
Such a sunny day in a surreal way.
I look into his big brown eyes, my tears flow.
I hold him ’till I know he’s gone, my voice so quiet.. and I whisper –
Last drive, I love you pup, you rescued me, when I rescued you….
