Sara Evans - Rockin' Horse Lyrics

The rockin' horse came
From an old oak tree
Just missed the house
When it was hit by lightning
My daddy painted that horse
A midnight blue
Shooting stars and silver horse shoes
And it was something magic out of somethin' frightning

That's how I live my life
I take it how it comes
And I find the hidden love
When its pouring down on me
In my mind I see
The rocking horse inside the tree

A broken heart means deeper feelings
A thorn in the flesh means room for healing
Oh salt in your tears can open your eyes
Wounded years make you realize That its just
Something magic out of something frightening

That's how I live my life
I take it as it comes
And I find the hidden love
When its pouring down on me
In my mind I see
The rocking horse inside the tree

Things aren't always as they seem
Take the nightmare from my dreams

That's how I live my life
I take it as it comes
And I find the hidden love
When its pouring down on me
In my mind I see
The rocking horse inside the tree
