You know I can’t let you slide through my hands

Hi. How was your weekend, Hart Beat? I’ve been practicing my guitar a lot lately, and tonight is no exception. I’m so happy to be in my apartment tonight looking out over the east river at Manhattan. Rough life. Anyway, I wanted to share one of my favorite songs to play with you tonight.

“Wild Horses” 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

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you’ve decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or off stage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

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 horses, we’ll ride them someday
