boygenius - Me & My Dog Lyrics




[Phoebe Bridgers:]
We had a great day
Even though we forgot to eat
And you had a bad dream
Then we got more sleep
'Cause we were kissing

I had a fever
Until I met you
Now you make me cool
But sometimes I still do
Something embarrassing

[Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus:]
I never said I'd be all right
Just thought I can hold myself together
But I couldn't breathe, I went outside
Don't know why I thought it'd be any better
I'm fine now, it doesn't matter

I didn't wanna be this guy
I cried at your show with the teenagers
Tell your friend I'll be all right
In the morning it won't matter

I wanna be emaciated
I wanna hear one song without thinking of you
I wish I was on a spaceship
Just me and my dog and an impossible view

I dream about it
And I wake up falling

boygenius Me & My Dog Comments
  1. Chip Olmstead

    Wishing I could express how good this is...

  2. Pearl127

    Julien's guitar tone is like a warm hug.

  3. Jordan Barclay

    This song made me sad so I browsed dog videos to cope afterwards. Great choice of song title!

  4. Giovana S.

    Amores da minha vidaaaa

  5. Majestic Sanctuary

    Gosh, what a good song.

  6. Pancho308

    That lap in the back sings out nicely....and of course Phoebe. I'd love to see them live.

  7. Panicinthefalloutofchemicals

    Girl with the tele cute cute 👀👀

  8. James Wang

    It's amazing how much better this version is than the studio version.

  9. dr chipmunk

    I need phoebe Bridgers to scream at me

  10. Alberto Romero

    I know this song is not really about dogs. I'm pretty sure it's about escapism after a relationship soured. But I still had a breakdown thinking about my dog while listening to it. He very likely has cancer but the vet recommended not operating because of his age. That line "Me and my dog and an Impossible view" had me bawling in my car in a strip mall parking lot.

  11. Zach

    phoebe's wailing.....

  12. Dirk Kuyt

    I listened to this with my dog and he got a little boner. It made me feel very awkward. Unsubscribed

  13. internetbelle

    does anyone have the chords for this!!! AGH cant find a good progression anywhere!

  14. Pancho308

    No words..

  15. Cecilia Duran

    play this at my funeral.

    vinyltone

    I was thinking the same thing, On my shortlist definitely... this version.

  16. N. Silva

    Phoebe screaming the last part always makes me bawl my eyes out. Love, love, love this song. Instead, it's me and my cats and an impossible view.

  17. comrade hermit

    Phoebe Bridgers = The second coolest person under fifty with white hair after Julian Assange.

  18. Kato Khaelan

    Wow. So talented

  19. Kolin Evans

    What a girl ! Wow !

  20. Pancho308

    Wow...that got the juices flowing and a lot of bumps....those ladies are electric. I hate to say I missed them here in Madison. I will be first in line should they ever return. Like Emily below says....the mixing was fantastic. Guess I'll watch it again....sounds good blasted over some new Philips Fidelios.

  21. Mack

    holy mother of god why are these women so underrated like what the fuckkkk and PHOEBES VOICE THOOOO

  22. Astral Mufasa

    Who else has arrived here by the power of zodiac?

  23. Jack Busch

    i heard there was a small town in Norway that was getting 50% of its renewable energy from phoebe's voice at 2:39

    Aja S Queen

    I love this 😂

  24. ModernSurvivor

    I wish this was the version on Spotify

  25. Elle

    powerful

  26. Ashton Hogland

    okay but is Phoebe's belt at the end ever not going to give me chills!?!?

  27. Magnolia Lee

    i love boygenius so much wow thank you for gifting us this

  28. Olivia Brocklehurst

    AND I DREAM! ABOUT IT! I WAKE UP! FALLING!

  29. Libby

    Phoebe belting those lines at the end just cured my depression

  30. dudebro27

    2:40 fucking goosebumps. so many fucking goosebumps

  31. Johnathan Utahzio

    Man, Wilson Phillips is aging wonderfully.

  32. Joe P

    They ripped this song off...
    See when I was in middle school my friend and I made a rap song called Me and My Dawg and all these people did was change the spelling. My friend's dad is a lawyer so good luck.

    Ashton Hogland

    my heart dropped for half a second

    Wouter De Laender

    you are funny

    Joe P

    @Wouter De Laender thanks

    Joe P

    @Ashton Hogland sorry

  33. Wouter De Laender

    Live version much better then the LP-version

  34. lalala lalala

    We had a great day
    Even though we forgot to eat
    And you had a bad dream
    Then we got no sleep
    'Cause we were kissing

    [Verse 2: Phoebe Bridgers]
    I had a fever
    Until I met you
    Now you make me cool
    But sometimes I still do
    Something embarrassing

    [Chorus: Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus]
    I never said I'd be all right
    Just thought I could hold myself together
    But I couldn't breathe, I went outside
    Don't know why I thought it'd be any better
    I'm fine now, it doesn't matter

    I didn't wanna be this guy
    I cried at your show with the teenagers
    Tell your friend I'll be all right
    In the morning it won't matter

    I wanna be emaciated
    I wanna hear one song without thinking of you
    I wish I was on a spaceship
    Just me and my dog and an impossible view

    [Outro: Phoebe Bridgers, Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus]
    I dream about it
    And I wake up falling

  35. actual bread

    ok so phoebe is literally the most beautiful woman i have ever seen. absolutely ethereal. oh my god when she hit that “i wanna be emaciated” i felt that

  36. Almondsundays

    She's an angel with blonde hair. What a great voice,

  37. Bryan Baumgartner

    I can see this song evolving for another 10 minutes

  38. femmebrûlée

    it's just so fucking good 😭

  39. lennart2089

    Who is the Boygenius, the drummer`?

  40. Charles Wallace

    Love the EP but this one is especially good - I’m always like “. . . wow” at the end.

  41. ThrustPhysics

    Weird camera work focusing only the guitars... like he felt awkward to focus on their faces, haha

    actual bread

    ThrustPhysics i would be too, theyre so beautiful id be shaking

  42. Andrea Marchi aka Marchiza

    Why they always shout during the last refrain? They should get vocal lessons to control their voice, because there's a high probability to be out of tune. Anyway, girls are amazing...beautiful song

    Danny Dibnah

    Yeah but they nail it every time

  43. hunter ratliff

    RIP sweet maxxi

  44. Geovanni Castillo

    I feel like she watches a lot of anthony green shows

  45. Jacob Gill

    Im in love w phoebe

  46. Seb Arkana

    Julien Baker = Coolest girl in the world

  47. f shaikh

    IS THIS PHEOBE BRIDGERS

  48. BOB CRIED WOLF

    Nice job

  49. John Beadle

    The last two lines, especially the shattering vocal from Phoebe Bridgers to end the song sends shivers down my spine. So powerful. An absolutely amazing group of talented musicians and song writers.

  50. John Beadle

    Love this group. Used 2 of their songs to go along with a poem I wrote. If so inclined please check it out --> https://hubpages.com/literature/Ok-To-Start-Again

  51. Mike Schunke

    just me and my 🐕..and an impossible view...💘

  52. Mike Schunke

    memorizing.....

  53. Lafaiet Castro

    I'm listening and crying to this song while I think about my ex gf. We used to spend the nights awake talking and kissing. To bad I don't have my dog to hold on to anymore, since he died last year :'(

    WoeisEuTu [&]

    Suffering for my ex gf right now listening to this song and crying.

    WoeisEuTu [&]

    She used to be so unique and now she is changing... it hurts

    Your Dry Blazer

    Hope you mates get better :/ ✊

  54. Dana Brewster

    Genius.

  55. Charles Grantham

    Damn. That's awesome.

  56. Kelly Catbagan

    I don't know why they're always wearing those jackets, but I wouldn't want it any other way

    tragically1982

    They're a super group. They're just dressing like it.

    Kelly Catbagan

    @tragically1982 OH DAMN!

    Sadie Carter

    I like to believe they made them for each other at what must have been the world's best sleepover

  57. Carlo Geeno

    Buying full Torag’s 1m

  58. Ricardo Treehi

    Just Phoebe and her dawgs with an impossible view

  59. Samus Aran

    Julien makes some weird faces lol

    Jihane Bishop

    And we love her for being authentic!

  60. Josh Liam

    Amazing! Just learned about this collaboration through the World Cafe and wow.

  61. Danny Vrachan

    2018 Crosbie Stills Nash !

    Jacob DeCoursey

    Actually, that's a really good comparison.

  62. Andy McVeigh

    The harmony scream from the white haired one at the end.....

    nouellette

    It's even better in the version from Late Night With Seth Meyers which I'm having a hard time finding lately. She has a slight but intentional vocal crack when she changes registers during scream but it makes that live version even better and more endearing and it fits perfectly actually.

    Josh Sit

    @nouellette it seems to have been deleted :\

    Kenz P

    Das my girl phoebe bridgers! Her music is insanely good

    Tanuja K

    Josh Sit I think I have it downloaded! I’ll see if I can reupload it

    Savannah Montgomery

    @Tanuja K help i need it lol

  63. Bryan Lobue

    What the Fuhhhhh. Phoebe, and ya'll. Reg from Regs Coffee House played you guys in Birmingham AL. Please consider playing a us

  64. Middle Mouse

    holy freakin wow what a performance!

  65. Kevin Kennedy

    Can't seem to stop listening to this song. Amazing!

  66. vas17

    phoebes belts.... omg i need to here more of that

    lennart2089

    that´s a problem since they are actually -there-

    Malcolm George

    She’s amazing

    0Z239 108?

    I want more music like this. can anyone recommend me? I want to know...

  67. Knial Piper

    Does anyone get Lou reed-perfect day vibes? In the beginning

  68. Buddha Squirrel

    3:06 looks like they didn't have good video for this point in the song so they had to have someone fake it after-the-fact.

  69. beflygelt

    Baker makes funny faces while singing

    Leopold Bloom

    The song is more important than the face.

    tragically1982

    I love them.

    gbluecheez

    Get outta here befly

  70. Kat Harris

    They are SO TALENTED

  71. Kevin Toaso

    Phoebe has a ridiculous range

    etagged

    Kevin Toaso I want to know what it’s like giving Phoebe Bridgers an orgasm.

    fghtffyrdmns

    @etagged why ya gotta be weird

    CJL96

    @etagged Good luck with that cuz I'm fairly certain she's gay

    Soupman Stevens

    @CJL96 phoebe is bi, julien is gay

  72. Bananas and Blow

    First exposure to Lucy Dacus was "I don't wanna be funny anymore". That was a revelatory experience, and with each successive song I've just been more and more impressed.

    What are some songs by the other members of boygenius that I should check out? Have hard this group referred to as a "supergroup", so I'm eager to check out the other members' material!

    Iceberg Lettuce

    Julien Baker is the first one I found out of the group. My favorites from her first album are "Sprained Ankle", "Everybody Does" and "Go Home". On her second album, "Turn out the lights", "Appointments", and "everything to help you sleep" But all of her songs are incredible! She also has some unreleased stuff floating around on the internet like "Red Door" which I love! Julien's songs are actually the reason I made it through high school in one piece.
    I love Phoebe Bridgers too, especially "Would You Rather" and "Scott Street". Her songs are super hauntingly beautiful. They make me happy and sad at the same time.

    JustAnotherGoldfish

    @Monocle Pig Productions oooh Georgia is amazing, I also love Demi Moore

    jana m

    they're both really good, what got me into phoebe was actually her song smoke signals. julien's entire second album is amazing but funeral pyre really stands out

    Cecilia Duran

    Monocle Pig Productions phoebe is just out of this world. Stranger in the alps: a masterpiece

    Hopscotch Travels

    Julien Baker has done a few songs with Frightened Rabbit that are worth checking out, and if youve never heard of Frightened Rabbit give them a listen too 🤘

  73. David Brooks

    Always good to see my girl Camille. Sup Camille, big fan!

    David Brooks

    ​@Samus Aran She's the violinist that tours with Julien and she''s clearly an angel. 2:11

    Lexa Woods

    I love Camille too! it always makes me happy to hear her playing.

  74. trklsswndr

    b'genius~B'JEEBEEZUS-H.C.! Holdin' back the tears...simply not possible! BonKers Great: "I wish I was in a spaceship ~ Me + my dog, in an impossible view"... ~ then all Cathartic-Hellaciousness-hath - been released ~ SUPERB!!!

  75. J'sDesireForAKittycatPersists

    Amazing song...

  76. Emily Brooker

    How did a public radio show (no shade) get the mixing on this better than literally every other show they've been on
    y'all magic i stan

    Danilo Gonçalves

    the mixing is so good!!

    beflygelt

    because radio knows about audio

    nouellette

    Late Night With Seth Meyers is the best live version of this song in my opinion

    onemorebrando

    They get a huge endowment and endless pledge drives

    Sylvandro Jameson

    @onemorebrando old codger alert: Brooklyn Bowl version is incendiary ("Almost Famous" reference)

  77. honkitonkitom

    Hands down boygenius is one of the best things that happened 2018.

    ltgreatsocks1

    wasn’t 2018 also the 30th year of the trump presidency?

    Michael B

    Must've been a shitty 2018 for you.

    sianny36 e-3636

    I agree. 2018 was a shit year.

    0Z239 108?

    I want more music like this. can anyone recommend me? I want to know...
