Flying Horses
by Dispatch

The river of doubt gave birth to a beautiful stone
And in my hands I held it and I knew I was on my own
So I picked it up and held it to the sky
And in my reflection I knew I was all alone

Yeah (yeah)
Then I saw this girl with the most beautiful hair
She had it wrapped around her, for clothes she did not wear
I asked her for a lock and she complied, after leaving
Gorgeous footsteps in the sand as if she didn't care

Well, she was the prettiest girl I ever saw
The stone lay still without a flaw
The feelings I had defied the law
As I came to, I went to
And I took a look, a look down the road
To see a badger and a one-eyed toad
They didn't say a word they just looked at me
With that wise old look of the old
(Yeah wise old look of the old)
Yeah

Then I went down to town
To my favorite merry-go-round
To the place where magic hoses fly
And you seldom see a frown

But then I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now
(It's all rusty)

You see 'cause that stone fell though my pocket
And that lock of hair flew away with the wind
If you chance to meet upon either
Well you know where they've been

But don't pick them up or try to find me
They're much happier to be on their own
Beauty like that knows no home
And if you take a look, a look down the road
You'll see a badger and a one-eyed toad
They won't say a word they'll just look at you
With that wise old look of the old
(Hey yeah, wise old look of the old, hey yeah)

Yeah but then I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now

I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And it's all rusty now
I stole a ring from the flying horses
And I can't begin to explain how
I stole a ring from the flying horses

These guys rock,  great tone and vibe. Simple music that really means something.

Nicholas Roy

The one person who disliked this must be allergic to greatness.

"the stone fell through my pocket, and that lock of hair flew away with the wind... If you chance to meet upon either, you know where they've been... but don't pick them up or try to find me, they're much happier to be on their own, beauty like that knows no home..." beautiful lyrics!
