"The Horse" as written by and James Dustin Payseur....
I couldn't talk to you
But I loved to walk with you
I drop from the sky right as
You say goodbye
Forever has haunted our dreams

I lost my heart for you
And I said a thing or two
Stones of the ground are uncoverin' line
That I never warned you were there

The horse oh you
The horse with your head to the sky
Will you turn back again
And return in my bed
The horse is no longer home

    My InterpretationPerpetuating memories/daydreams about a former lover; perhaps reliving certain moments of the relationship, including the breakup and how that may have shattered whatever idealistic notions that existed about that relationship/person ("I drop from the sky right as you say goodbye, forever have haunted our dreams"). Although, I'm curious about the "our dreams" bit. Perhaps the other person involved isn't over it either, and he knows it?

    There seems to be some sort of self-discovery through it all, which tends to happen upon reflecting back on a broken relationship ("Stones of the ground are uncoverin' line that I never once knew were there"). At the end of it he seems to still be dreaming of this person, indicating that he still feels connected and hasn't really been able to let go.

    General CommentI hear:

    I couldn't talk to you
    But I'd love to walk with you
    I drop from the sky
    Right as you say goodbye
    Forever have haunted our dreams

    I lost my heart for you
    And I set it free for two
    Stones of the ground are uncoverin' line
    That I never once knew were there

    The horse of you
    The horse with your hand to the sky
    We turn back again and I turn in my bed
    The horse is not undone

    -----------------

    Either way, it's a great song.
