“The horse flung his head up” by Julia on her couch

I saw a horse on a plate and I wanted to get it for you

She was galloping over a fence
I was happy for you

It takes a real horse to be happy for someone else

You have to be free enough to see what is really there

I don’t know how often I’ve been the horse, been free

I am supposed to sugar coat this so nobody gets scared off

This is a good place I can promise you that

It doesn’t need the knot in the foot to remind us all
