Two, three, four

(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)

Well my heart knows me better than I know myself
So I'm gonna let it do all the talking.
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)
I came across a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)

I felt a little fear, upon my back
I said don't look back, just keep on walking.
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)
But the big black horse said look this way,
Said "hey lady, will you marry me?
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)

But I said no, no, no, no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me
No, no, no, no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me

(Ooooo, woo-hoo)

My heart hit a problem, in the early hours,
So I stopped it dead for a beat or two.
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)
But I cut some cord, and I shouldn't have done that,
And it won't forgive me after all these years
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)

So I sent to a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)
But it won't come back, 'cause it's oh so happy
And now I've got a hole for the world to see
(Woo-hoo, woo-hoo)

And it said no, no, no, no-no-no
I said no, no, you're not the one for me
No, no, no, no-no-no
Said no, no, you're not the one for me

(Ooooo, woo-hoo) (not the one for me, yeah)
(Ooooo, woo-hoo)
Said no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You're not the one for me
Said no, no, no, no, no, no, no
You're not the one for me

Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there cause they've all forsaken me
Big black horse and a cherry tree
I can't quite get there cause they've all forsaken me

By the time she realizes she was in love, it was too late,she had walked away and couldn't undo that. She had betrayed herself. Tbe he sense of loss and hurt continues to present in her world... She has to live with her mistake.
