I was a lonely, wild stallion, cocky and proud
I used to ride, holding my pride, above the crowd
Thought I was king, king of the stable
You didn’t wait, you slammed that gate, you turned the table

Take off your boots, take off this saddle
You’ve already busted me, I got no more battle,
If you came here to break me, then break me you did
But I can’t help but feel like something got fixed inside me instead.

You took me on, you thought you could show me
But I didn't blink, I didn't think, you'd know how to throw me
There was a time that I resisted
Hopelessly blind that Love of this kind even existed

Once in awhile I start to wonder
How I survived, why didn't I ever go under
Love was a gamble, I couldn't risk it
If you hadn’t come round to take me down I would have missed it
