Two, three, four

(Woohoo, woohoo)
(Woohoo, woohoo)

Well, my heart knows me better than I know myself
So I'm gonna let it do all the talking
(Woohoo, woohoo)
I came across a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree
(Woohoo, woohoo)

I felt a little fear upon my back
I said don't look back, just keep on walking
(Woohoo, woohoo)
Well, the big black horse said "Look this way"
He said, "Hey lady, will you marry me?"
(Woohoo, woohoo)

But I said "No, no, no, no, no, no"
I said "No, no, you're not the one for me"
No, no, no, no, no, no
I said "No, no, you're not the one for me"

(Ooh, woohoo)

And my heart had a problem in the early hours
So I stopped it dead for a beat or two
(Woohoo, woohoo)
But I cut some cord, and I shouldn't have done it
And it won't forgive me after all these years
(Woohoo, woohoo)

So I sent her to a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree
(Woohoo, woohoo)
Now it won't come back 'cause it's oh-so-happy
And now I've got a hole for the world to see
(Woohoo, woohoo)

And it said "No, no, no, no, no, no"
I said "No, no, you're not the one for me"
No, no, no, no, no, no
I said "No, no, you're not the one for me"

(Ooh, woohoo) (not the one for me, yeah)
(Ooh, woohoo)
I said "No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You're not the one for me" (woohoo)
No, no, no, no (woohoo)
No, no, no (woohoo)
No, no
You're not the one for me

Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me
Yeah, yeah, yeah (woohoo)
Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there 'cause my heart's forsaken me

    General CommentK, so she's going along with her life, and suddenly, a choice appears. She has to choose between the Horse (evil, scary, but she kinda want's to pick him) or the cheery tree (peace, calmness, security) and she knows that the cheery tree is the right one, but she kinda wants the horse anyways. So she chooses the tree really decidedly, hoping that if she sounds sure to the rest of the world, she will be sure. So she moves on, but cannot forget the horse that she didn't choose. Her heart wanted the horse, but her mind knew the tree was the right choice, and she followed her mind. This cuased her to start thinking like this always (her heart stopped for a beat or two) and she stopped feeling things and always went with the logical desicion. She sent her heart back to the desicion, and let her heart do as it pleased, and it didn't return to her, meaning she tried to feel with her heart instead of her mind, and her heart just stayed at that same place, and dwelled on that mistake while her mind went on. Her mind keeps on telling her she made the right choice, but her heart is gone and she's empty.
