Childhood living is easy to do The things you wanted I bought them for you Graceless lady you know who I am You know I can't let you slide through my hands Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away I watched you suffer a dull aching pain Now you've decided to show me the same No sweeping exits or off stage lights Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away
I know I've dreamed you a sin and a lie I had my freedom but I don't have much time Faith has been broken tears must be cried Let's do some living after we die Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild wild horses we'll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn't drag me away Wild wild horses we'll ride them some day
