Putting the Dog to Sleep Lyrics

Put your arm around my collarbone
And open the door.
Don't lie to me if you're putting the dog to sleep
That pet you just couldn't keep
And couldn't afford.
Well prove to me I'm not gonna die alone.
Unstitch that shed-off soul
To close up...

    Yes just yes this relates to as if the person was being put to sleep by sadness and stress or lies , lost friend ship and etc all the bad things that make you want to be put to sleep by something or someone.

    I LOVE how this can mean so many things. Like someone ending a relationship, someone lying to someone else, a friend trying to commit suicide with someone else, or just the broad message of euthanizing a pet.
