about

Written by Paul on a somber day for no particular reason and sung on hard days thereafter, we almost kept this one to ourselves, but hopefully the sentiment is helpful to anyone with hard days of their own. It's not an answer or remedy, but maybe humming along can be a flickering lamp for someone stuck in the dark.

lyrics

Some days you’ll feel down
That’s fine
You don’t have to smile all the time

Now and then you’ll wake up sad
It’s OK
It won’t be like that every day

And even if it is it’ll be OK too (It will be OK)
And if it is I still love you (I will love you)

Here and there you’ll get anxious
That’s alright
Just take a deep breath
It may pass

And if it doesn’t it’ll be OK too (It will be OK)
And if it doesn’t I’ll just sit here quietly beside you (I will love you)
I’ll be right here beside you

Sometimes you’ll get mad (It’s OK)
Now and then you’ll feel overwhelmed (That’s alright)
Here and there you’ll be afraid
Some days you might just need a little help
Some days you might need a little help

When all the things you take don’t make it feel better
And lying in bed doesn’t make you any less awake
And all the staring out the window won’t take you away

Because it’s not that simple and that’s OK
It’s not that simple and That’s OK

When that’s the way it is it’ll be OK too (It will be OK)
If that’s how it is I’ll just sit here quietly beside you (I will love you)
I’ll be right here beside you
There are days you’ll feel loved
I hope you do

about

Dog Is Blue Toronto, Ontario

Toronto’s Dog Is Blue is a garage-folk duo made up of Paul Watson, principal songwriter and cookie-tin pedal enthusiast, and Laura Heaney, purveyor of ghost-noises and multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire.

Together they bramble around proudly with all the jangly toys of a tickle-trunk and the surefooted bravado of travelling snake-oil salesmen.
