speaking of wild horses...

I swear I have a much longer post to contribute, stored safely away somewhere in my mind. Currently inaccessible. But I can't let the tiger-half show me up repeatedly. So it's coming. I'll think of some life story and a stream of conciousness later, post something amazing and cool and insightful and delightful. For now, though, I'll just crib off-a him and bring you a cover of the 'Stones Wild Horses.

It's Faultline playing, and the thoroughly amazing Joseph Arthur on vocals. Eat it up, kids.

Faultline (feat. Joseph Arthur) - Wild Horses (Rolling Stones cover)

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

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you've decided to show me the same
No sweeping exit or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses couldn't drag me away

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, wild horses we'll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses we'll ride them some day
