Lets go play some money on the order the horses
Break the ribbon of that famous finish line
And then gather up our stash, babe
Find a little ranch, babe
And buy a lonely little pony to ride

Well I knew I was lucky
When a needle came and stuck me
A porcupine came and poked this cactus hide
Let me finish what I start, babe
Open up your heart, babe
I'll sow a land of milk and honey in your mind

Oh flesh and blood has found me in your arms again
I see the whisper of the wind has found your hair again
And though my heart said "give me refuge"
In your dignity my dear
All I could do is put a seashell to your ear

Oh flesh and blood has found me in your arms again
I see the whisper of the wind has found your hair again
And though my heart said "give me refuge"
In your dignity my dear
All I could do is put a seashell to your ear

    General Comment?? No comments on this?! This is song is BEAUTIFUL. I love, no, ADORE it. Bright Eyes did a cover of this song. Both versions are amazing.

    General Commentthe bright eyes version isn't that good... Conor's just trying to give himself Matt's voice, and he plays it a bit more dismantled... But as for the meaning, I'd say it's pretty much nothing to be looked deep deep into. The in's and out's of a laid-back relationship.
