3. Puppy Dog
Puppy Dog is a cute one. I was honestly just in love with my best friend and didn’t know how to tell them. I had written songs about other loves, other relationships but hadn’t quite faced the reality that I loved this friend. I didn’t know if they felt the same way I did so I just put that sort of puppy love, grade-school nervousness into a song. I love the second verse of this song because it’s so light hearted and fun to perform but underneath the surface it’s kinda sad, whimsical, and then hopeful. I think at the time they had a boyfriend so i was begging her to consider me.
