Rogers, Maggie - Dog Years Lyrics

I count my time in dog years
Swimming in sevens
Slow dancing in seconds
Oh and I'm the one that loves you
Oh and I'm the one that loves you
I spend my time daydreaming
As sure as the sea
It's just you and me
Oh and I'm the one that loves you
Oh and I'm the one that loves you

And if you had a bad week
Just let me touch your cheek
Oh and I'll be there waiting
When you get frustrated
I know things are changing
But, darling, I'm saying
I'll be singing you in all of my songs

Come what may
I'll still stay
Inside your mind
For all of time
Singing, ooh
We will be alright
In the afterlife

Of all that is shifting
And shaking my system
I know your rhythm
I know, I know, I know
That I'm the one that loves you
Oh and I'm the one that loves you

And if you had a bad week
I will sing you to sleep
Oh and I'll be there waiting
If you start to get jaded
I know things are changing
But, darling, I'm saying
I've been here all along

Come what may
I'll still stay
Inside your mind
For all of time
Singing, ooh
We will be alright
Not in vein will still stay the same
Inside your mind
For all time
Singing, ooh
We will be alright
In the afterlife
In the afterlife

I count my time in dog years, dog years, dog years, dog years
We will be alright
We will be alright
In the afterlife
Singing, baby, we will be alright
We will be alright
We will be alright

Rogers, Maggie Dog Years Comments
  1. Flguy34698

    I can not express enough how much I love her music and how often it has a calming affect on me. I thank the universe for her and her wonderful music. 😁😁😁😁

  2. Alejandra Robles García

    Your music makes me feel comfortable with myself, in harmony. It's cute.
    (English is not my mother tongue)

  3. William Haneke

    Stay with me here - 1.44 min is a nod to Bill Withers (Ain't No Sunshine), with Bruce Springsteen (I'm on Fire), and Dido combined. In totality, her phrasing, lyrics, and composition is a phenominal amalgamation of styles!

  4. Corey Boiko

    In case anyone is wondering - 1 dog year = ~7.4 weeks (52 days)

  5. Kariel

    Relaxing song thanks

  53. Othership Adventures

  54. horsenmusicaremyforte

    Just happened to stumble upon Maggie’s songs due to complete procrastination and random clicking. Best decision I ever made. That was a year ago now and I’m hooked. I never comment on like anything but I have to say she gets you in ways that commercialized music can’t. You can write songs built on formats and psychology all you want, but this is the purest part of music, that comes from the soul, something you can never teach someone nor truly understand. All you know is that you feel it too. Thank you Maggie for being pure and for writing music that is unique and true to you and thank you for sharing it. ❤️

  55. William Smart

    wow, just stumbled on this friday night, 9:00pm august 30th 2019, watching a pharrell master class, then her song comes on, and I'm like wow (had to re/edit this, to it was more like a Wow, what is this I am hearing, this reminds me of hearing sigur ros, or phantogram for the first time, or even portis head, not comparing her to them, but that feeling of something new), that master class on youtube was 2015, glad she recorded songs, maybe get to see her in orlando 2019 now, gotta love a random search on the internet!

  56. Jordan Ricks

    she is one of the really unique artists of today

  57. Anna Lis

    Why the people there? If she would be alone would be much better
