  • He means to ride me on,
    He sees a battle he don't want to face alone
    I bolt upwards and shake him off my back
    He falls to his knees, on to a bloody track

    Well I can't be your horse any more
    You're not the warrior I've been looking for

    I see what you mean to do with me
    I cannot protect you from who you want to be
    Go face the Lord on your own
    You have my love but it will not make you grow

    I can't be your horse anymore
    You're not the warrior I would die for

    He fearing solitude, began to beg
    When he saw I was sure, stuck a knife into my leg
    Good luck walking on in your own bloody trail
    This noble path you're on will send us both to hell

    I'm just a horse on the moor
    Where is my warrior I've been looking for?

    I stumbled some way on, licking my sores,
    Tasting the memory of pain I have endured
    Wondering where am I to go?
    Well looking back on a bloody trail, you think that I should know

    But I'm just a horse with no name
    Somewhere there's other beasts who think the same

    I'm just a horse with no name
    Some place there's some other beasts who think the same

    One morning I awoke to someone calling me
    A priestess I'd seen once in some arcana dream
    And she pulled an orange from the ground
    Is this my warrior, I, I am found

    I'm just a horse with no name
    Where are my other beasts who think the same?

    I'm just a horse on the moor
    Where is the warrior I've been looking for? Writer/s: LAURA BEATRICE MARLING
