  1. Dogs, Damien Rice

    She lives with an orange tree
    The girl that does yoga
    She picks the dead ones from the ground
    When we come over
    And she gives
    I get
    Without giving anything to me
    Like a morning sun
    Like a morning
    Like a morning sun
    Good good morning sun
    The girl that does yoga
    When we come over
    Girl that does yoga
    He lives in a little house
    On the side of a little hill
    Picks the litter from the ground
    Litter little brother spills
    He gives
    I get
    Without giving anything to me
    And the dogs they run
    And the dogs they
    And the dogs they run
    In the good good morning sun
    Side of a little hill
    Litter little brother spills
    Side of a little hill
    Oh and she's always dressed in white
    She's like an angel, man
    She burns my eyes
    Oh and she turns
    She pulls a smile
    We drive her round
    And she drives us wild
    Oh…and she's always dressed in white
    She's like an angel, man
    She burns my eyes
    Oh and she turns
    She pulls a smile
    We drive her round
    And she drives us wild
    Oh…

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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)

  7. 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

  8. 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 🙂

  9. 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 (:

  10. 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
