They walk the horses home at night right by my window
They pull their carriages along busy city streets
It's from another time it's like a lullaby
But I don't think that I can sleep tonight

So I count the streetlights
I count the stars
I make a wish and wonder where you are
I wonder if I'll live
Long enough to feel again

Help me 'cause I'm falling out of grace
I hang my head and hide my face
I don't know what it is I just feel out of place
Like horses in the city

I played the game I dropped the ball I lost another friend
I gained a future but I can't see where the future ends
I'd write a letter or write a song
But once again my voice just comes out wrong
Tonight I I wonder if I'll live long enough to sing again

Help me 'cause I'm falling out of grace
I hang my head and hide my face
I don't know what it is I just feel out of place
Like horses in the city
In the city yeah hey

But they don't seem frightened
As the cars go speeding by
So why am I so terrified to close my eyes tonight
I'm just afraid there's no time no time this time

They walk the horses home at night right by my window
They pull their carriages along busy city streets
I wonder if they'll live to run without the reins again

Help me 'cause I'm falling out of grace
I hang my head and hide my face
No I don't know what it is I just feel out of place
No don't know what it is
Know what it is
I just feel out of place
And don't know what it is
Know what it is
I just feel out of place
Like horses in the city
In the city yeah

    General CommentThis song is about just not fitting into life because you feel lonely and gray. I love it so much that I've driven my family members nuts by putting on repeat.
