Aldous Harding - Horizon Lyrics




Let me put the water in the bowl
For your wounds, babe
Let me fill you up with the fingers of love
You can't lose babe
When you watch me play, does it feel bad, darlin'
When they choose me?
Say again, this place
Say again, this place

I broke my neck
Dancing to the edge of the world, babe
My mouth is wet, don't you forget it
Don't you lose me
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon

I've gotta scratch it down, I never could amount
That's it, babe
And now the sugar's run out
And I don't know what to say
Say again, this place
Say again, this place
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon

And every now and then, I think about
When you'll die, babe
There's a fall in my head
It floods what you said into the room, babe
I don't belong in the desert
Yes, I can see it, take me home, babe
Say again, this place
Say again, this place
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon

Here is your princess
And here is the horizon
Here is your princess
And here is the horizon

  10. Mary Moser

    Oh my heart 💔

  11. chuck farley

    I stumbled upon “The Barrel” by chance. I am repeating what many say about her as it seems to be more common than I expected. I’m a medley of thoughts and emotions when I experience her. One cannot simply watch or listen. It is truly an experience. This is not the kind of music I like or listen to. I am one that is not easily moved or susceptible to emotions. Aldous is like witnessing a terrible car wreck where a mother dies on scene but her infant child is miraculously saved by a stranger. You are mortified, and rejoicing at the same time. It is so compelling, and invokes strange mixtures of emotion. What a mad, strange, incredibly amazing being. I wish I could sit in the countryside somewhere by a lake, and share an apple with her.

  12. Razor Back

    It is so authentic. What else to say.

  13. Mark Latham

    Magnificent.

  19. Edward Edgely

    Let me put the water in the bowl
    For your wounds, babe
    Let me fill you up with the fingers of love
    You can’t lose babe
    When you watch me play, does it feel bad, darlin’
    When they choose me?
    Say again, this place
    Say again, this place

    I broke my neck
    Dancing to the edge of the world, babe
    My mouth is wet, don’t you forget it
    Don’t you lose me
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon

    I’ve gotta scratch it down, I never could amount
    That’s it, babe
    And now the sugar’s run out
    And I don’t know what to say
    Say again, this place
    Say again, this place
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon

    And every now and then, I think about
    When you’ll die, babe
    There’s a fall in my head
    It floods what you said into the room, babe

    Yes, I can see it, take me home, babe
    Say again, this place
    Say again, this place
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon

    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is the horizon

  20. Thomas Drake

    Makes me feel like a child in mans clothes. Both scared and terrified to know myself better in light of how realized Aldous seems to be

  21. Kolin Evans

    {At 4 beers in I feel like I want to explain my interpretation}
    The mother is in white performing a ritual because she believes that her daughter {Princess} is possessed by some dark spirit.

    From the ‘dark spirt’ point of view ‘she’ is saying that here is your ‘Princess’ and here is the ‘horizon’ in the view to say these to vectors are as separate as to be like opposite polarity like a completely opposite vectors yet nevertheless merged also so like something impossible.

    She is clearly saying they are at opposite fields however she is standing in the center, so inevitability merged and merging the two.

    The point she is making is that the ritual even if successful would not have the outcome she {the mother } wants but rather the opposite because as she is the merger point of the two vectors then if she doesn’t exist {on that plane with the horizon} then neither does her daughter due to the a probability collapse mechanism.

    Kolin Evans

    Having said that this focuses mostly on the clip, I definitely think there is a ‘dual’ meaning to the other aspects of the lyrics.
    But related to the clip you can clearly see in the expressions on Aldous face from that point of view she is trying to explain the ‘impossible’ yet also there is a frustration and anger. Hard to pin point really I guess..
    If you watch to the end of the clip you will see she starts to walks away in the end not wishing to engage in the ‘argument’ any further.
    Not to take lightly what she is doing that is the main point, she the ‘mother’ can do harm and she is trying to explain that she has the choice so to engage further in that action is to as aforementioned explain regards her daughter. Which is why she is walking away.

    Kolin Evans

    {cracking the 5th ready to break down the lyrics}
    First of all none of this is set on the 3D plane, due to if it was then the ‘Dark spirit’ would be merged with Aldous and none of the conversation would be the same.
    That’s an important point, because ‘Aldous’ in this case is still ‘Aldous’ on the 3D plane in which is talked about, because it’s a merger in this case. That is probably to complex to relate in a yt comment section
    The first lyrics relate to her saying ‘I feel real sorry ‘ in a sarcastic way , the next part is talking about the effects of the variance of the art post merger, these are clearly points coming from frustration, imagine being attacked for existing, so this ‘dark spirit’ is venting in this point saying like

    ‘Oh let me help you with this great sorrow , do you feel bad for all this success ?’

    This is after being ‘brutally’ attacked.

    ‘Say again this place’ is a general frame statement which says like ‘fuck this place Saytanya’ like saying ‘ fuck this place’ ‘I did this for you’ lol I’m being attacked for existing. Lol

    The next lyric talk about how rare it is , etc , ‘I broke my neck dancing to the edge of the Earth’ trying to say look at this impossible event from the other point of view {but understanding it impossible likely to explain} its like saying ‘I scanned the earth to find Aldous’ she is special.

    ‘The sugars run out etc’ basically nothing I say will convince you. I understand that.

    The next lyric state basically ‘you are hurting me’ by doing all this in a ‘pointless’ way.

    Saaaay again this place .

  22. Junior Albuquerque

    Que música é essa pelo amor de Deus 😨😨😨 Incrível, profunda, maravilhosa 😍

  23. Alexus Ruelaz

  27. Jordan Broderick

    The 1st and only song i've heard from her that i like

  28. divina6

    I keep coming back to this song. Stunning and beautiful, Aldous and Lorina Harding.

  29. Ardeshir Sarosh

    I don’t know why I listen to her music she has an amazing voice and I am attracted and repulsed and a disturbed all at the same time and i don’t know why!
    I’m not sure if I wrote this correctly.

  31. Nigel Girling

    Holy crap! I can't believe I discovered this astonishing artist from 2 lines of Stop Your Tears at the end of an episode of Brokenwood. The first two Ines of that song had an emotional power that captivated me... I went from there to the arch wriggling of The Barrel, via Imagining my Man and to the dark energy of this. My new favourite artist and a worm-hole into a dimension I didn't know existed. I'm scared and fascinated in equal measure.

    SaRaH SaLiX

    You will be so glad you did. She is brilliant

  32. DAMEIN O'FERRALL

    One of the few artists whose studio recordings don't hold a candle to her live ones.

  33. lindalou8120

    A truly original and unique artiste....mesmerising and fascinating x

  34. Storming Elysium

    This song/video gets me every time.

  46. Douglas Hall

    She's absolutely brilliant.

  47. shumanbehaviour

    She's a strange mix of Feist, PJ Harvey and Feist. Love her.

    June Asiimwe

    Also hints of early Kate Bush.

  48. Gabriela C

    I assumed the same. goes well beyond a similar physical appearance

  49. Thuraya Shi

    Finally.... In the midst of all the plastic, empty poppy culture a being with utter creativity.. Her form of artistry & expression is unique and a breath of fresh air.. Everything about her is just mind blowing and effortless it seems.. Pure raw and uncutt... Finally she has arrived 🖤

  50. Jor Livia

    No ,mere mortal man can control her spirit....and if if Moms open the front door~RUN

  51. stoke pusher

    In 2023 Japanese billionaire Yusaku MaezawaIn is taking a group of artists to the moon aboard one of Elon's rocket ships, no doubt there will be technical data to gather from the flight (as will all ongoing space endeavours) and the intended ambition for these artist is to try to convey the experience of having our planet and all life we know become a distanced origin upon return.  
    Thing is despite this song kinda being a partnership song, I'm starting to think that from a broader sense already holds this world encompassing kind of merit

  52. GAMERS LEAGUE TY

    Aldous from mobile legends

  53. Евгений

    what all of us and why all of us are here. Just the Space.

  54. Essence O'doyley

    Wentworth sent me here lol

    Thanks Aldous. phenominal work. I just see some toxic narccism dynamic. Your energy shows a lifetime of dealing with it. love your work.

  66. Tim Chuma

    I thought this voice sounded familiar from the end of one particular episode of Mystery Road...

  67. Lim W T

    1:00-1:10

    There's one song that is very similar to Horizon but I can't get my head around it. Does anyone knows any song that is similar?

    It's so frustrating

    we we

    Thirteen Thirtyfive - Dillon?

  68. Jonny Ray Raygun

    Dreamcycling nightmares of peace

  69. x FiAzc0

    isn't she doing Tai Chi...not Akido ?

  70. Julianna Zdunich

    this video, this song, the fact that it is her mom.. I find it mesmerizing and look at my own daughter in hopes that down the line we can have as open and creative relationship as these two do.

  71. Fu Paullada

    Me había preparado para un festival de comida durante varios meses, estaba listo y ese mismo dia, descubri a Aldous Harding. Me perdí el festival entero, no podía salir de la casa, quería saber todo de ella y de por que hacia esta música que me hipnotizaba. Pasé horas enteras viendo sus videos y escuchando todas sus canciones.

  72. I3LINK

    This is just weird...

  73. Emma Crawley

    Incredible!!

  74. basejump

    just to clarify, was that princess horizon?

  75. Pancloth

    I love the way she uses everything to create such expressive sound, such a unique voice and intonation, can;t be done without using lips, teeth, cheeks, muscles, eyes even, to create the tensions, emotions, amazing artist, keep being you Aldous! <3 Can't wait to see you in Glasgow in all your glory!

  76. Jamie-Lee C Newman II

    At certain times YouTube gets it bang on right with its recommendations. On this occasion, I first listened to "The Barrel" Then I listened to "Horizon" and then "Stop your Tears". (Stop your tears made me cry) - All amazing, my new found artist for 2019. I may be late to the party with this one but better late than never, I am blessed to hear such wonderful, heartfelt, REAL talent. Artistic without boundry. <3

    Jeroen VW

    The debut album is fantastic, saw her live earlier this year in a very small venue (250/300 capacity) no small talk, just an hour of great music finished off with a cover of Gerry Rafferty's 'Right down the line'

    Aldous Harding
    Let me put the water in the bowl
    For your wounds, babe
    Let me fill you up with the fingers of love
    You can’t lose babe
    When you watch me play, does it feel bad, darlin’
    When they choose me?
    Say again, this place
    Say again, this place
    I broke my neck
    Dancing to the edge of the world, babe
    My mouth is wet, don’t you forget it
    Don’t you lose me
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    I’ve gotta scratch it down, I never could amount
    That’s it, babe
    And now the sugar’s run out
    And I don’t know what to say
    Say again, this place
    Say again, this place
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    And every now and then, I think about
    When you’ll die, babe
    There’s a fall in my head
    It floods what you said into the room, babe
    I don’t belong in the desert
    Yes, I can see it, take me home, babe
    Say again, this place
    Say again, this place
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon
    Here is your princess
    And here is your horizon

    “Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same.”
