Amanda Marshall - Dark Horse Lyrics



Indian summer, Abeline
You were new in town, I was nineteen
And the sparks flew
They called us crazy behind our backs
Romantic fools, we just let them laugh
Because we knew

It may be a long shot
We may get lonely down the line
Love knows no reason
And I won't let 'em make up my mind

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run

Stars are brighter in a desert sky
No need to wonder or justify
Where this will lead
I wear your locket, our picture's inside
Inscription says "the joy's in the ride"
And I believe

That something so sacred
Is something worth this kind of fight
'Cause love knows no patience, no, no
You can't please everyone all the time

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run

So rare
So sweet
Together baby, I know
We can disappear
Be free

Ooh, my money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let it run, baby

My money's riding on this dark horse, baby
My heart is saying it's the lucky one
And it's true color's gonna shine through someday
If we let this, let this dark horse run

Indian summer, Abeline
You were new in town, I was nineteen
Yeah, baby
In the summertime
Hey, yeah
Ooh

  8. Raymond Leung

    Love this Canadian musician and also Mae Moore (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RBquKAQBMc). Not the most well known in the US. She's one of Canada's secret stash of hidden talents.

  9. David Kraft

    I've been looking for this for years. I used to hear dark horse as star wars, I don't know why. But classic song

  10. Tocimah

    Amy Grant song. Whoever wrote for Amy continues on with other artists....

  11. Alan Rothsman

    1 million views of this and only 54 thousand of "Beautiful Goodbye" that is backwards to me. This is okay but BG is pure ballad gold IMHO.

    woke up with this song in my head despite not hearing it for a long time. Strange how that is. This was on the radio a lot when I was a kid. The 90s were a golden era in a lot of ways, before 9/11 and smart phones turning everyone into zombies.
