The King's Horses

Thought once I had a King; 

Wore an invisible crown,

Sometimes spoke truth

Mostly knew to say the wrong thing at the right time,

Faithfully I played the clown

 

All the King’s horses,          

And all the King’s men,       

Could not put my heart  

Back together again

 

Fall, fall away,

Time heals, or so they bravely say,

Well all this time I feel, 

Silence holds you real             

 

Still I play the courtier;

Your courtier in the wings,

Chasing shadows,

Clutching precious things

 

All your pretty horses,

And all these men,

No they won’t,

Oh they can’t put my heart together again

 

Counting crows in the sky, 

Wondering if I

Could fall from great heights, 

If your wisdom was my pride

 

All the King’s horses,

And all the King’s men,

No they won’t, 

Oh they cant put my heart together again

 

All the King’s horses,

And all the King’s men,

Could not put my heart

Back together again

No they won’t, they can’t put my heart together again
