THE HORSES
Rickie Lee Jones


We will fly

Way up high

Where the cold wind blows

Or in the sun

Laughing having fun

With the people that she knows

And if the situation

Should keep us separated

You know the world won't fall apart

And you will free the beautiful bird

That's caught inside your heart

Can't you hear her?

Oh she cries so loud

Casts her wild note

Over water and cloud

That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin'

We'll be riding on the horses, yeah

Way up in the sky, little darlin'

And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up


You will grow

And until you go

I'll be right there by your side

And even then

Whisper the wind

And she will carry up your ride

I hear all the people of the world

In one bird's lonely cry

See them trying every way they know how

To make their spirit fly

Can't you see him?

He's down on the ground

He has a broken wing

Looking all around


That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin'

You go riding on the horses, yeah

Way up in the sky, little darlin'

And if you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up

Can't you hear her?

Oh she cries so loud

Casts her wild note

Over water and cloud

I'll pick you up darlin' if you fall

Don't worry 'bout a thing little girl

Because I was young myself not so long ago

And when I was young

When I was young

And when I was young, oh I was a wild, wild one.
