I see the earth below me, from a cloudless sky
I think of what I've lost and what I'm never going to find
In spite of all the love around me, I grieve for what I leave behind

I see a shadow moving, along the Great Divide
A herd of appaloosas running down the other side
Changing everything inside me, bringing so much back alive

Painted pony, long may you run
How I only wish I was young
Heading out on the wide open plains where I was born
But I'm up in this fathomless air
You're below on the ground way down there
For as long as you run you will keep my hope alive
How I love it when wild horses run

I walk along the river, watch the water flow
I wonder if I swim her, will she ever let me go?
Or will she hold me like a lover?
Make me part of her own soul

And then a Great Blue Heron in the shallow reeds
Opens up his wings and climbs to heaven over me
It's hard to see a circling heron and say you still do not believe

Painted pony, long may you run
How I only wish I was young
Heading out on the wide open plains where I was born
But I'm up in this fathomless air
You're below on the ground way down there
For as long as you run you will keep my hope alive
How I love it when wild horses run

Did you ever have a moment flow like love around you
And just heal everything?
You look around, cannot define it
Nothing can describe the rowsing beauty in this place
How I love it when wild herons fly

Painted pony, long may you run
How I only wish I was young
Heading out on the wide open plains where I was born
But I'm up in this fathomless air
You're below on the ground way down there
For as long as you run you will keep my hope alive
How I love it when wild horses run
