LaMontagne, Ray - All The Wild Horses Lyrics

All the wild horses
All the wild horses
Tethered with tears in their eyes
May no man's touch ever tame you
May no man's reins ever chain you
And may no man's weight ever lay freight your soul
And as for the clouds
Just let them roll
Roll away
Roll away
As for the clouds
Just let them roll
Roll away
Roll away

    This is such a beautiful song. It brings out the raw pain that exists in all of us, every living being. Like wild animals, we don't want to be tainted or harmed. Our innocence is such a fragile thing and it can be taken from us. This song brings tears to my eyes every time!

    terresa williams

    Dëbbîë Āñdrîā me2 debbie. love ray x

    Mister Lackey

    I think about my father when I hear this song. For years he loved to break and ride horses, but eventually settled for motorcycles -- he loved to ride. And that's how he was taken from us. Semper fi pater, numquam obliviscar


    Same here. Bawled my eyes out and then listened to it on repeat.

    Joseph Dane

    I love it when that happens. Don't be embarrassed to feel things. I used to cry on the subway/bus when I heard a beautiful song.

  69. The ALine

    Thumbs way up! Gorgeous!!!

  70. Debra .Lawes

    potential flagship song for wild horse rescue peeps.

  71. Christina Fisk

    I relate to the sweetness and the sadness of trying to be a wild horses and all alone and society not let them be them be their selves as always we cry to be our selves and fight with our hearts to be our selves the ones that have a strong heart and a wild spirit society leave us alone stop want us to change why aren't u letting us be who we are. Loving, tender and a heart of gold and the awesomeness of being respectful and dealing with all kinds of the ones that tried to keep us in control. Let us be let us live and u live up own concept of being political correct. Let us be free, free. ...

  72. Ethan Ziesing

    I really appreciate your music Ray!

    All the wild horses
    All the wild horses
    Tell her with tears in their eyes
    May no man's touch ever tame you
    May no man's reigns ever chain you
    And may no man's weight ever defrayed your soul
    And as for the clouds
    Just let them roll
    Roll away
    Roll away
    As for the clouds
    Just let them roll
    Roll away
    Roll away


    @Jafafa Hots I agree...defrayed is past tense and would not make sense with the tense of all the other verbs in the song... although it sounds like that is what he is saying...I too think it's lay freight.

    Albert Wisenauer

    wrong lyrics...nice try though

    Jafafa Hots

    Look around at how many hear it as "defrayed." All over the net. Clearly it IS hard for some to hear.

    Austin Weber

    @Jafafa Hots Also, it just makes sense that it would be freight, as in a load or burden. 

    O Mary

    I think it's "deflate your soul" because that makes sense with the rest of the line, i.e. no man's weight. Defrayed is a financial term that means to put off the costs of something and it's also in the past tense: just doesn't fit in any way. Ray's one of those rare intelligent songwriters-like leonard cohen-who pays attention to his analogies and metaphors and doesn't mix them or throw out meaningless ones. Not typically anyway, though I can't say I've listened to all his songs. But I'm going with "deflate" because it makes sense like the rest of the lines before it (touch/tame reins/chains).

  85. katia fry

    Such a gifted man.  The songs and the voice delivering them take me to a peaceful place and just plain make me feel good.

  86. Tomas Arrey

    Too cool ya. Man😊

  87. Erin Mahady

    Everything about this song is absolute beauty. This gives me hope that not all music today is complete crap. :)

  88. Floppy Bob

    I live 42.2 miles from his house.

    The Keepers

    Floppy Bob that's to cool dude . You must live out in the middle of nowhere?

    Bonnie Nash


    Z Licious

    And wild horses couldn't tear you apart

  89. blues713317

    Noooo kate... I.m.o. = in my opinion

  90. Jordan Dudenhoeffer

    27 people really need to get their heads checked. This song is perfect.

  91. Katelyn Olivia

    I listen to this song every night as I fall asleep. It makes me feel so calm :)

    Jamie Crosmas

    I could come sing it for you if you like:)

  92. Katelyn Olivia

    This song has such a beautiful meaning to it


    I heard this song as background of a porn video with elegant British ladies stripping. I still can't understand all the lyrics, I think its really beautiful, what is the singer saying?

    Tawanda Mawushe

    @varigdc10 Beautiful picture you've painted there. Lol

    Jared Keltz

    You win all the comments. All of them.


    @Jared Keltz Thank you, but its really true, saw a video of beautiful British ladies stripping, nothing hardcore but a soft core strip, nothing more, but really done in style and good taste.  

  93. blues713317

    What's this, imo crap lol. Just speak your mind. You don't have to defend or justify yourself by adding, imo at the end of something you wrote.
