Sure you ride the finest horse I’ve ever seen
Standing sixteen one or two, with eyes wild and green
You ride the horse so well, hands light to the touch
I could never go with you, no matter how I wanted to

Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to
Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to

When you ride into the night without a trace behind
Run you claw along my gut one last time
I turn to face an empty space where you used to lie
I look for the spark that lights the night
Through a teardrop in your eye

Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to
Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to

Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to
Ride on, see you, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to

I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to
Oh, I could never go with you
No matter how I wanted to

    I feel like it's about death. Either the girl or guy in a true love relationship dies and whoever is singing is the one who's left behind. It starts by describing how (I'll say she as in the girl dies) she is riding away into the next life, transitioning smoothly, I guess, and the guy says that if he could follow he would, but it's impossible. When it says "run your claw along my gut one last time" I feel like it refers to how they have hurt in the past but carried on, and now with her being gone she's hurt him more painfully than ever before, but for the last time ever. He says he'll look for her in the sky, and to go on to where she now belongs because no matter how much he wants to, there's no way to follow yet. Does that make sense at all? It's just kind of what I picture in my crazy and quite depressing mind.
