Ride On lyrics

by Celtic Woman

True you ride the finest horse I have ever seen
Standing sixteen one or two, with eyes wild and green
And 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 your claw along my gut one last time
Turned to face an empty space where you used to lie
And look for the spark that lights the night
Through the teardrops in my 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...
