In a dream last night I saw a thousand horses
Striding across a plain
Their manes flowing free in the breeze
No barriers in their way.

Then a child looks up
With innocent eyes,
Asks why all things mist die,
What's the reply?
I never found out -
Then my dream ran dry.

It's life, life, life....
That's all it is.

I tossed and turned all night long
With the weight of life on my head.
No one said it would be like this,
No one ever dares.

I lie and wonder for hours on end
How we ever came to be this way,
And I say "Lord, if you're really up there
Send me a better day."

Love is the cure but also the drug,
I've walked on air when falling in love.
Though when the bough breaks
Oh how it aches
To re-enter the world alone.
