Dogs, Damien Rice
She lives with an orange treeThe girl that does yogaShe picks the dead ones from the groundWhen we come overAnd she givesI getWithout giving anything to meLike a morning sunLike a morningLike a morning sunGood good morning sunThe girl that does yogaWhen we come overGirl that does yogaHe lives in a little houseOn the side of a little hillPicks the litter from the groundLitter little brother spillsHe givesI getWithout giving anything to meAnd the dogs they runAnd the dogs theyAnd the dogs they runIn the good good morning sunSide of a little hillLitter little brother spillsSide of a little hillOh and she's always dressed in whiteShe's like an angel, manShe burns my eyesOh and she turnsShe pulls a smileWe drive her roundAnd she drives us wildOh…and she's always dressed in whiteShe's like an angel, manShe burns my eyesOh and she turnsShe pulls a smileWe drive her roundAnd she drives us wildOh…
I came across this song on a Obadiah Parker albulm was just so moved .. it's a beautiful song which I think is made even more beautiful by Obadiah Parker ….their rendition is amazing
My interpretation of this beautiful song:The first verse of the song is about the girl that the protagonist of the song love. The word "we" refers to the protagonist and his older brother. "She gives I get without giving anything to me, like a morning sun": just the way she is, the way she lives gives the protagonist joy and love without really giving him anything.The second verse is about his older brother. The verse just describes the protagonist life with his brother. The same "He gives I get without giving anything to me" like the first verse. "And the dogs they run". The dog here may refer to the protagonist but I don't understand the meaning of the usage of plural "dogs" here.The bridge is about the time all 3 of them spent together. And she turned down the protagonist love.The third verse is about the love of the girl and the protagonist's brother. "Got a wolf to keep her warm": this is why I think the dog is the 2nd verse is the protagonist, now this verse has the "wolf" to refer to the protagonist's brother. "She gives he gets without giving anything to see": they are in love but don't show it when the protagonist is around, or at least they think so. "And they day it ends, and there's no need for me": now the lovers has each other and the protagonist will just be the third wheel when he's around.Just my interpretation though.
The bridge of this song led me to the gardens of Babylon…
is it 'splashed in pain' or 'splashed in rain'?
Has anyone ever noticed a similarly with The Grateful Dead? 'Friend of the Devil'?
shame on u for moniterising copyrighted content.
This song was stucked in my head today morning.. dunno how I remembered it.
this song gives me so much hope
the dog who does yoga
The song goes so many different places it's a little gem
Damien rice is beautiful
Probably my favourite song ever so many memories
beautiful lyrics about doomed love ..like so many tunes i guess if love was always good and life long we would all go insane with boredom..
Wow. Just… wow. The bridge at 2:00 is just… just gorgeous. The entire song is superb but damn that bridge took my breath away.
it's about the generosity that exudes from your being when you pursume e something that you love….like the girl who gives without knowing, like the morning sun…if we do what we love it's not only ourselves that benefit but a lot of people would be inspired. that's how i feel about this song for the longest time now.
i come here everyday too.
I come here when I feel alone
People are asking the meaning of this song. I think it is open to interpretation. I am a yoga girl. I wear white a lot. My friend goes through the dump for jewels. We have a sweet relationship without really giving or getting much. It just happens effortlessly..I believe most music is wonderful because WE get to hear the words and apply them to our lives. Basically music is a healer. Love this song. Makes me feel like the world is ok.
Have you tried Mimmu Fat Blast? (look for it on google) It is a quick way for you to shed fat fast.
Damien Rice, you are an angel.
He sings about one dog he loved so much
damien loves a girl. she loves another guy. damien is turned down put in the friendzone (And turns away, and leaves me standing ). in the end, the girl and the guy got together and damien is forgotten (Got a wolf to keep her warm When he comes over) and (And the day it ends And there's no need for me)
ooooooohhh okay. 🙂
Actually he is singing about dogs…not humans. 🙂
It happens the same to me…
Ok, now we know your youtube account, Damien..:)
This is a great song
Before this album came out, I thought his next album couldnt be as good as O. I guess he proved me wrong.
I like to think it's written from the perspective of the dog whose owner loves the girl that does yoga. They visit the girl and she would often give him (the dog) her affection. Their relationship gets exclusive and there's no need for the dog =P
I think of dogs, and i think of the most common position in yoga. something about the upper ward dog or somethin? ..the girl who does yoga..iunno. i like how all damien rice songs are so aloof & mean something different to everyone 🙂
Everytime i listen to damien i am like "wow, hard to top that song" … then i look to the right, see a song with a name i don't know yet, click on it and discover the awesomeness just once again (:
@CroppyBoy1798 i think it's splashed in pain? 🙂
bonsai tree. solid.
Just a little thought, I read a reply to one of Lisa Hannigans songs, 'Little Bird' about the possibility of it being about Damien. In it she mentions 'a house by the side of a hill', Damien mentions, in this song about a guy who 'lives in a house in the side of a little hill'. Also, he mentions about this lady being dressed in white, resembling an angel and being 'splashed in paint', anyone seen Lisa's video for 'Knots', she's dressed in white, angelic looking and being splashed in paint! ;D
So simple .. yet so captivatingly beautiful
Superb song.. stating that Love and Want are two different things :).. Want is violent Love is not
they should add another definition of dogs in the dictionary: a song so amazing that you can't describe it.
