"Wild Horses" as written by Wayne Wilkins, Andrew Frampton and Natasha Bedingfield....
Ooooh

I feel these four walls closing in
Face up against the glass
I'm looking out, hmmm
Is this my life I'm wondering
It happened so fast
How do I turn this thing around
Is this the bed I chose to make
It's greener pastures I'm thinking about
Hmm, wide open spaces far away

All I want is the wind in my hair
To face the fear but not feel scared

Ooh, wild horses I want to be like you
Throwing caution to the wind, I'll run free too
Wish I could recklessly love like I'm longing to
I want to run with the wild horses
Run with the wild horses, oh

Yeah, oh oh, ye-yeah

I see the girl I want to be
Riding bare-back, care-free
Along the shore
If only that someone was me
Jumping head-first, head-long
Without a thought
To act and down the consequence
How I wish it could be that easy
But fear surrounds me like a fence
I want to break free

All I want is the wind in my hair
To face the fear, but not feel scared

Oooh, wild horses I want to be like you
Throwing caution to the wind, I'll run free too
Wish I could recklessly love like I'm longing to
I want to run with the wild horses
Run with the wild horses, oh

I want to run too
Oooh oh oh oh
Recklessly emboundening myself before you
I want to open up my heart
Tell him how I feel, ooh ooh

Oooh, wild horses I want to be like you
Throwing caution to the wind, I'll run free too
Wish I could recklessly love like I'm longing to
I want to run with the wild horses
Run with the wild horses
Run with the wild horses

Ooh ooooh ooh ooh ye-yeah yeah oohh
I want to run with the wild horses, ooooh

    I feel these four walls closing in
    Face up against the glass
    Im looking out... hmm
    Is this my life, I'm wondering
    It happened so fast
    How do I turn this thing around
    Is this the bed I chose to make
    Its greener pastures I'm thinking about hmm
    Wide open spaces far away

    All I want is the wind in my hair
    To face the fear but not feel scared

    [Chorus:]
    Wild horses I wanna be like you
    Throwing caution to the wind
    I run free too
    Wish I could recklessly love, like I'm longing too
    Run with the wild horses, run with the wild horses
    Oh yeah yeah ooh

    I see the girl I wanna be
    Riding bare back, carefree along the shore
    If only that someone was me
    Jumping head first headlong without a thought
    To act and damn the consequence
    How I wish it could be that easy
    But fear surrounds me like a fence
    I wanna break free

    All I want is the wind in my hair
    To face the fear but not feel scared

    [Chorus:]
    Wild horses I want to be like you
    Throwing caution to the wind
    I run free too
    Wish I could recklessly love, like I'm longing too
    I run with the wild horses, run with the wild horses
    Oh

    I wanna run too
    Oh woah

    Recklessly abandoning myself before you
    I wanna open up my heart, tell him how I feel

    [Chorus:]
    Oh
    Wild horses I want to be like you
    Throwing caution to the wind
    I run free too
    Wish I could recklessly love, like I'm longing too
    I wanna run with the wild horses, run with the wild horses [X2]
    Oh woah
    Yeah

    I wanna run with the wild horses

    General CommentTo me this song means just letting go of the stress of life and just having fun and being free. but in another view point, in the song she says," I wanna open up my heart, tell him how I feel," so it could have something to do with a relationship, so this song could have various meanings.

    General CommentThis is a really pretty song. I think the meaning is about how she wants to break free and she wishes she could just run in the wind forever. Yes a little cheesey but VERY pretty.

    General CommentI think that this song is about feeling overwhelmed with all the responsibilities in her life. She is saying that she has to many things to needs to take care off, and it is gettin stressful. She is saying that she wants to be free of all these burdens, she wishes that she could just "run with the wild horses" who have no responsibilities in life. She just wants to escape from the world.

    General CommentI love this song.
    I think it's about a girl who found herself giving up love for a life that's more 'stable' and that won't have as many risks. But deep down she still loves the man she is talking about, and she wishes she could be brave enough to face her fear for her love, though it could hurt her badly.

    The song gives me story ideas. And I do love horses too, so it's one of my favorites.

    ((btw LOL Someusername, I agree))

    General Commenti think that this song means that she is feeling that she is wasting her llife. she feels that she wants to be a horse because they don't have to worry about anything. she wants to be free of the life that she is living
