"Cage 23" lyrics - TOURNIQUET

"Cage 23"

Well I walked right in the front door
Started moving down the rows of so many cages
All the faces staring back at me
Each and every one with a sad story

I wonder how they got here, where did they come from
Somewhere somehow someone didn't want them anymore

I paused at cage number 23
As a dog with a sad but hopeful face was looking up at me
I said I'll take you home someday, but not today
And if not by me, by some other family, I'm sure

Hang tight my little friend while I figure it out
A better life waits for you just around the bend
Hang tight my little friend while I figure it out
Just wait for me and you'll soon be free

Every year, approximately 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide. Sadly, over 2 million of these precious animals are euthanized before anyone comes to give them a home. Together, we can change these tragic statistics.

In Cage 23 and beyond - they're waiting - waiting to offer their unconditional love, their loyalty, and a bond that can't be put into words. Will you make room in your home, and in your heart - to change not only their life - but very likely, yours too...

So when I finally found the time to take him home with me
I walked back to find an empty cage 23
They said nobody came to rescue him
His time ran out, I'm sorry he's gone
Oh how I miss that special soul in cage 23...
