"Kings Horses" as written by Christopher Cester and Nicholas John Cester....
Jokers believe what they're told more or less
So pull up an armchair lets drink to success
Everyone laughed at the things that you said
At all the kings horses and all the kings men

When the back lights have broken
Then all that you built will come tumbling down
Don't try to hold it
You know you can always start over again

Tell me a story or sing me a tune
Remember the one 'bout the man on the moon?
In the morning I swear I will tell you the truth
How you receive it, well, that's up to you

When the back lights have broken
Then all that you built will come tumbling down
Don't try to hold it
You know you can always start over again

I know I should ask you
But everyone got scared
I just want to help you
But everyone got scared
Scared
Scared

Well I should have told you
That everyone knows what they wished they had said

When the back lights have broken
And all that you built has come tumbling down
And don't try to hold it
You know you can always start over again.

    General CommentI love this song...it's kind of sad but I can't really describe it. The chorus is apparently about picking yourself up and starting over again, not giving up, etc. but the verses seem like he has a secret or something like that...so maybe it's about a couple breaking up ... ?

    ok never mind ignore me...lol

    General CommentTo me it's about a break-up. Or maybe the relationship never even got to start for one reason or another. Maybe he didn't admit he liked her or something... or maybe that's just my life?
