"Leading Me Now" as written by and Kristian Matsson....
By the eyes of the very young
It’s a sudden good attack
On our weakness, my horse and I
Carry anger forth and back
But we’ll make it somehow
You have all what’s mine
And you are leading me now
On the gallop to mother’s field
We would lose our breath and fight
And you give me the look of thorns
We give liars every night
But I get you somehow
Leave the reins inside
You are leading me now

And every time we wonder
What we left back in your hearts
Could you see we’re dreaming
Though our minds just fall apart
But we will end up somehow
With a peaceful mind
And you are leading me now
To the site where I flew from you
When your pace just scared me blind
We will come back and joke of days
When I sold you to the unkind
We will end up somehow
With a peaceful mind
And you are leading me now

    My InterpretationAs per most TMOE songs, Kristian utilizes man's connection with nature to tell a double story.

    In this instance, and on the surface, it's quite clear that the primary story is about a deep connection and contentious relationship between a man (boy) and his horse. The man struggles to contain and master the horse, but gradually accepts the horse's freedom and guidance in faith.

    The secondary story, for which the primary is metaphor, seems to me to be about love and the fear of love / commitment, which rings strong in Kristian's other songs. The man (Kristian) resists and battles falling in love and being complacent with commitment out of fear. Gradually, as the man accepts the lover's freedom, the man gives into love, in the faith that they "will end up somehow, with a peaceful mind".
