700 Horses



I'm gonna build a bridge across forever
Secret songs across the skies
A bridge to you across forever
Walking back into your eyes

Am I one, one in a million
Or a million in one ?
Am I infinite, eternal and old ?
Painted with moonlight
This child of the sun
Walks the dark night of the soul

Hail, wind, ripping through my clothes
It's a fool, a parasite
An instant metropolis seems warm now
Guess I'm still learning to die

Am I one, one in a million
Or a million in one ?
Am I infinite, eternal and old ?
Painted with moonlight
This child of the sun
Walks the dark night of the soul

A little psychosis goes a long, long way yes it does
I try to be somebody else as often as I could
He'd say stop and I'll say go
Wrapped you tight and don't it show
Let me try to unwind ya
I know you're lost I'm gonna find ya

It's like trying to rein 700 horses
Like trying to tame a raging sea
It's like trying to rein 700 horses
Like trying to live with somebody like me
