"The Horses" as written by and Walter Carl Becker Rickie Lee Jones....
We will fly way on high
Where the cool winds blow
Or in the sun laughing having fun
With all the people we know
If the situation should keep us separated
I know the world won't fall apart
You will free the beautiful bird
Caught inside your heart

Can you see her oh she flies so proud
Cast her wild wings over water and cloud

That's the way it's gonna be little darling
We'll go riding on the horses
Way up in the sky little darling
If you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up

You will grow until you go
I'll be right there by your side
Even then a whispering wind
Will call me to you in the night
I hear all the people of the world
In my one bird's cry
I see them trying every way they know
To make their spirits fly

Can you see her moonlight in her eye
Coming from under my wing
You were born to fly

That's the way it's gonna be, little darling
We'll go riding on the horses
Way up in the sky little darling
If you fall I'll pick you up, pick you up

    General CommentLove this song I used to fall alseep to it as a young child, even now as a teenager I fall asleep to it. My sister (little) loves it when I sing it!

    MemoryWhen I was a kid, I rememember I used to love to play this song when we were driving to San Francisco, across the bridges especially, with the windows down. A time where the weather was perfect, the sun was shining, and there wasn't any traffic. It made me feel like flying. Now 10yrs later, when I listen to this song it always makes me want to feel the wind blowing in my face.
