Ooooooooooooooo
Ooooooooooooooo

You told me, I see the rise
But, it always falls
I see them come, I see them go
You say, "All things pass into the night"
And I say, "Oh no sir I must say you're wrong
I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
Won't you listen to me

You told me, I've seen it all before
I been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams
Lying on the ground

I've seen the sky just begin to fall
And you say, "All things pass into the night"
And I say, "Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
Won't you listen to me

[2x]
Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
Good-bye horses, I'm flying over you
Good-bye horses, I'm flying, flying, flying over you

Ooooooooooooooo
Ooooooooooooooo

    I think the meaning, of "goodbye horses", is that you won't give up on your dreams and you won't forget about them no matter what people say or do to try and prove you wrong. A lot of people take life as a horse race and the writer is saying that he won't participate in such a foolish notion.

    For me, in my opinion is that i think that during the "i must disagree" verses; she is saying that she wont give up on her dreams no matter how many times you see them come and go. I also think that during the " good-bye horses, i'm flying over you" verse, she is saying that she is free and wont be tamed.

    Its "flying over you". Horses in eastern mythology/theology represent the the 5 senses, specifically a different horse for each sense. Thus by "flying" over the horses she is giving up either her emotions or perhaps life itself. The song is about overcoming a horrible break up.

    Awesome song! Only thing...at verse " And they say oh no sir" She is actually saying "And HE says, oh no sir, I must say your wrong" Just for the fact that the person singing "Good bye Horses" is a women! Funny Huh?

    flying over the horses or lying over the horses, i like the song a lot, makes me feel like making a new jacket, or maybe some nice boxershorts...
