"Horse and I" as written by and Natasha Khan....
Got woken in the night,
By a mystic golden light.
My head soaked in river water.
I had been dressed in a coat of armor. They called a horse out of the woodland.
"Take her there, through the desert shores."
They sang to me, "This is yours to wear. You're the chosen one, there's no turning back now."

The smell of redwood giants.
The banquet for the shadows.
Horse and I, we're dancers in the dark.
Came upon the headdress.
It was gilded, dark and golden.
The children sang.
I was so afraid I took it to my head and prayed.
They sang to me, "This is yours to wear. You're the chosen one, there's no turning back."
They sang to me, "This is yours to wear. You're the chosen one, there's no turning back."

There is no turning back.
There is no turn.
There is no turning back.
There is no turn.
There is no turning back.
There is no turn.

    General CommentWhenever I listen to this song it takes me to this very dark fairy-tale-ish world full of kingdoms, nights and beasts... I just love it.

    General Commentgorgeous vision of a mythic quest. I like the way the female protag has strength, the coat of armour, as well as the beauty of the headress.

    General CommentI love the harpsichord! Made me think of Joanna Newsome. Very medieval sounding... which I like very much. Has been on repeat for a while now. It's quite haunting I think. ABSOLUTELY LOVELY!

    General Commenti read that Natasha said in an interview that a dream about a horse inspired her to pick up music. i guess this song might directly refer to that dream - 'you're the chosen one, there's no turning back' - that might've been the direct message then.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the third(? it is in my collection) Narnia book, the Horse and his Boy. It's definitely the best one.
