This song is by Advance Base and appears on the album Animal Companionship (2018).

We woke to our neighbor's cries
The sting of smoke in our sleepy eyes
& I said baby better get dressed
Get the dog we can leave the rest

By the time we got downstairs
The fire engines were already there
And you were shaking you were so scared
I held you & kissed your smoky hair

That's when I knew
That I could take care of you

& when my best friend died
From the cancer that ate him inside
I got drunk & I stayed that way
For several nights into several days

For the times I was aware
What I remember is that you were there
You held my head & I cried & cried
You called our jobs & you lied & lied

That's when I could see
The way you take care of me
