Rolling Stones – Wild Horses lyrics

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or off stage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away

I know I've dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken tears must be cried
Let's do some living after we die
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses we'll ride them someday
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses we'll ride them someday

    I am not sure where I was when I first heard this song. I spent ages 19 to 26 in a small prison cell, but I was wrongfully incarcerated. When I was cleared of all charges after dna evidence and given an "apology" settlement by the state for $55, 000, I found myself confused. After lawyer fees and taxes, I was left with $21, 000. I used to hear play this song on a sony walkman in my cell at night. I played it every night for 5 straight years.

    This song and "you can't always get what you want" remind me of my first love. I had a beat up old Chevy with an 8 track tape. Such good memories! She recently passed away and I keep thinking about her and the times we shared. Hearing this song takes me back like it was yesterday. RIP Mindi H. You are loved & missed!
