High Horse (©2011, Rory Papania)

I wish you’d come around and start to see the faces of your friends
You think we’re young and there’s a lot to be but I tell you it’s the end
You’re walkin’ downtown on the other side, you say you’re hiding from the crowd
But I know that on the inside you just want to be found

Listen to the words that the streets cry out
They will help you find your way
You looked your best in your summer clothes
But the cold air took it away
And now you’re tied up with nothing to say

You were ridin’ on your high horse but got knocked off by the clouds
and now you’re lyin’ down on the cold hard ground with no one else around
You had a half-empty bottle in your left hand and nothing in your right
and you said ‘The Devil’s standing in the holy land and he’s looking for a fight’

Come in from the cold, let me lighten your load
Take your hat off and stay a while
You had it all with your damn good looks
But all the cigarettes tainted your smile

Where’d all the time go
And your old ways
See where the winds blow
Off to better days

Well you’ve seen better days and better times but it seems your fortune’s changed
You were happy when the sun was out but now you’re drippin’ from the rain
You were Bobby Fisher with your chess game, but your pieces can’t be found
But all you’ve got left is an old cassette and the tape won’t make a sound

Have you stopped to think about
all the days you left behind
I’ve come to know that you don’t regret
cause there’s nothing left for you to rewind

Where are you goin’
Where have you been
Does it feel good knowin’
You can never win
