Temple Of The Dog Call Me A Dog Lyrics

Last updated: 08/12/2013 06:44:17 AM

You call me a dog well that's fair enough
'Cause it ain't no use to pretend
You're wrong
When you call me out I can't hide anymore
I have no disguise you can't see through

Well you say it's bad luck
To have fallen for me
Well what can I do to make it good for you
You wore me out like an old winter coat
Trying to be safe from the cold

But when it's my time to throw
The next stone
I'll call you beautiful if I call at all

You call me a dog

You tell me I'm low 'cause I've slept on the floor
And out in the woods with the badgers & wolves
You threw me out 'cause I went digging for gold
And I came home with a handful of coal

But when it's my time to throw the next stone
I'll call you beautiful if I call at all
And when it's my time to call your bluff
I'll call you beautiful or leave it alone
You call me a dog
Well that's fair enough
It doesn't bother me as long as you know
Bad luck will follow you
If you keep me on a leash and
You drag me along

*guitar solo*

and when it's my time to throw
The next stone
I'll call you beautiful if I call at all
And when it's my time to call your bluff
I'll call you beautiful or leave it alone

You call me a dog

I've been listening to Chris Cornell for as long as I can remember. I've gotten back into singing and pull a lot of influence from his singing into my own. Love his writting and his singing style.

"It doesn't bother me as long as you know
Bad luck will follow you
If you keep me on a leash and
You drag me along"

This entire line, everytime he belts this line out, I feel that, I get goosebumps everytime. Because I relate to this so much. The entire song, I can feel it, and I relate to it in the worst of ways as of late. But that line, right there, the way he stretches out the word "Along" and rises up to that moment. That's what seperates Chris Cornell from everybody else I've ever heard sing. This song is a classic. And highly, highly underrated and underappreciated. Music isn't like it use to be. And this is coming from a 22 year old that was probably lucky to be five or six when this was released...
