R.I.P. Shadow (You will always be loved and missed)

The door has been opened, just for me.
 A fuzzy blur chased right up a tree.
Oh boy, I'm finally free.

I breeze through the trees.
A quick stop, to destroy a flea.
A stern voice of trouble, surely it isn't for me.
Oh boy, I'm still free.

Look another fuzzy goes up a tree.
He's exhausted at last but I'm still gonna flee.
Just a little more while I'm still free.

A look of disappointment and it's definitely for me.
Another burst through a thin line of trees.
Just because I'm still free.

He's coming for me.
With that dumb leash, my walk of shame back through the trees.
I had lots of fun while I was still free.

Now there's a nap waiting just for me.
My head on his knee.
Loyal to the end, oh yeah, that's me.
