"The Horses" as written by David Ray Frasier and Craig Michael Wiseman....
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

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

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

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

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

    Song MeaningThis song is so beautiful. It's about a man dying (of cancer i think) and he's talking to his daughter about heaven so she won't be scared when he dies. He's telling his daughter that he'll always be there, watching over her.

    "You will grow and until you go
    I'll be right there by your side
    And even then whisper the wind"

    He's saying that not even death can separate them and that he'll always be there, watching her and loving her.

    One of the saddest songs I've heard in a long while.
