  • I know you didn’t realize
    That the city was gone
    You thought there would be advertisements
    To give you something to go on

    So we search the sky
    For any flashing signs
    We’ve gone too far beyond
    The border it’s just you and I
    And if this is the end
    It’s the best place I’ve ever been
    It feels so good to just
    Get lost sometimes

    Only the horses
    Can find us tonight
    Only the horses
    Can bring us back home
    Our tracks they will follow
    They’ll hear us calling
    And save us by morning light
    Only the horses
    Can bring us back home
    Tonight
    Tonight

    We can’t escape the basic facts
    How cold it can get
    There’s nothing to protect ourselves
    When the rain gets us wet

    So I’ll just tell you now
    This is our final bow
    If you don’t know the way to
    Hold me let me show you how
    And if this is the end
    It’s the best place I’ve ever been
    It feels so good to just
    Get lost sometimes

    Only the horses
    Can find us tonight
    Only the horses
    Can bring us back home
    Our tracks they will follow
    They’ll hear us calling
    And save us by morning light
    Only the horses
    Can bring us back home
    Tonight
    Tonight

    Only the horses
    Can find us tonight
    Only the horses
    Can bring us back home
    Our tracks they will follow
    They’ll hear us calling
    And save us by morning light
    Only the horses
    Can bring us back home
