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 CommentYou're all over doing this, including kkrocks (sorry). It's about making choices and taking chances and becoming yourself (her words). The big black horse and cherry trees are a reference to a time when she was a teenager in Greece and went riding on a BIG BLACK HORSE through a grove; it started to run and ignore her so she was just rushing through the grove, and the imagery stuck with her.
