Wild Horses - Lyrics

by The Rolling Stones

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’ve decided
To show me the same

No sweeping exit
Or offstage 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 some day

Wild horses
Couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses
We’ll ride them some day

Protect your loved ones,

Get your own
Affairs in Order
Before it is too late

Protect your loved ones,

Get your own
Affairs in Order
Before it is too late

Protect your loved ones &

Get your Own
Affairs in Order
Before it is too late!

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, all come from earth, and to earth all return.

Ashes to ashes,
dust to dust,
all come from earth,
and to earth all return.
