Horses

Album: Local Honey (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • Brian Fallon found happiness when he married his second wife, an English girl. This love song is about the journey that he took to find his soulmate.

    Maybe it was planned when the angels spoke your name into existence
    That our hearts would be entwined
    And only time and life and a little distance
    Until I could be with you
  • Having found the love of his life, Fallon prefers to live in the moment rather than harking on regrets.

    And we don't mind the weight we carry
    We don't talk about no wasted years


    "That encapsulates my life now," Fallon told Kerrang. "My wife and I never discuss failures, because we've been through so many – and we've both torn into our individual and collective failures. You cannot fix anything but today. You can't dwell on the past. You have to be in the present. I don't care about what has already gone, because we do this all now."
