A Horse With No Name

In the style of

America

Lyrics

on the first part
of the journey
i was lookin' at
all the life

there were plants
and birds
and rocks and things
there was sand
and hills and rings

the first thing i met
was a fly with a buzz
and the sky
with no clouds

the heat was hot
and the ground
was dry
but the air
was full of sound

i've been
through the desert
on a horse
with no name
it felt good
to be out of the rain

in the desert
you can't remember
your name
'cause there ain't
no one
for to give you no pain

la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la

after two days
in the desert sun
my skin began
to turn red
after three days
in the desert fun
i was lookin'
at a river bend

and the story
you told
of a river that flowed
made me sad to think
it was dead

you see i've been
through the desert
on a horse
with no name
it felt good
to be out of the rain

in the desert
you can't remember
your name
'cause there ain't
no one
for to give you no pain

la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la

after nine days
i let the horse
run free
'cause the desert
had turned to sea

there were plants
and birds
and rocks and things
there was sand
and hills and rings

the ocean is a desert
with its life
underground
and a perfect
disguise above

under the cities
lies a heart
made of ground
but the humans
will give no love

you see i've been
through the desert
on a horse
with no name
it felt good
to be out of the rain

in the desert
you can't remember
your name
'cause there ain't
no one
for to give you no pain

la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la

la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la

la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la
