Josh Augustin Ever since this dude released his first song, OTOTW, I've been blasting it for my friends on repeat, probably to the point of excess. I was super excited to see he released a new song; it does not disappoint! James Wyatt Crosby is a master at crafting strong hooks and sweet jangly dream pop that sticks in your head (which is a great thing). Can't wait to see what he does next.

I’m not like the other ones
Different size a different shape
No I’m not like any other one
I’m not living my life in no cage

Do you remember where we began?
Stayed up at night
We’d sleep in the day
Do you remember how it all began?
Now would you say that things have changed?

And I know that you’re feeling so hard for me
But the problems are lying just beneath
‘Cause there’s something I keep hidden way down deep
I’m a wild dog a wild wild dog
It’s the things that I think before I sleep
And the promise I made that I just can’t keep
And you know in your heart that it just can’t be
‘Cause I’m a wild dog a wild wild dog

Please don’t ask me to change and I won’t ask you to change
Wild dog a wild wild dog
Please don’t ask me to stay and I won’t ask you to stay
Wild dog a wild wild dog

You’re not like the other ones
The love you have a love that sustains
Ya you were different from those other ones
See in your face that you’re in pain
You had my back I was the lucky one
No one will ever love me the same way
I turned my back now I’m the only one
I tell myself it’s better this way

And I wish that it didn’t have to be
Something that disappeared so easily
It’s so hard to describe but can’t you see
I’m a wild dog a wild wild dog
And it isn’t to say that there can’t be
Some fine day far away where we could see
But for now there just can’t be no in between
For a wild dog a wild wild dog like me
