Finn, Neil - Pony Ride Lyrics




He only wants to get you out of your mind
Offer sweet resistance don’t be unkind
When I was a boy I rode on his back
Now I ask myself the question

There’s no way I’m leaving this pony ride
in the midday tournament
I should never complain again
Thoughts spread like vines tangled up inside
They all decide to find a place
If you can hear the circuits jam I cannot tell

To the top of the hill I dig in my heels
And I whisper gently to the lord of the fields
And I listen closely to the sound of the bees
But I fear my nature has lost me

Somedays I’d rather be mystified
than understanding part of it
and have you try to explain again
thoughts spread like vines tangled up inside
They all decide to find a place
You can hear the circuits jam
I cannot tell

Only love
Is tripping you up
Poking your eye
taking you downtown
what goes on
I’ll sing you a song
a face on the mirror, the mirror

They come from the underground
And deep down you know it’s true
you laid out the welcome mat
For catfish and vampire bats

Somedays I’d rather be mystified
than understanding part of it
and have you try to explain again
Thoughts spread like vines
tangled up inside

They all decide to find a place
You can hear the circuits jam
I cannot tell

Finn, Neil Pony Ride Comments
  1. Debonaire Nerd

    Tragically underrated track from an equally under celebrated album.

  2. bonnie bianco

    oasis singing stone roses ?

    Jan Post

    +bonnie bianco Neil Finn, Split Enz & Crowded House are to my opinion much better than what Oasis ever made.

    Chris

    Umm . . . no, it's Neil Finn, one of the best song writers ever. Oasis is horrible.

  3. Gazz S

    Love it neil... that intro bass line.... awesome

  4. John Lawler

    Very 60s, warped, and psychedelic.  Neil's found the magic buttons again.

  5. MsDago1

    Great song live and in studio.  Neil at his best!

  6. Gert van Spijk

    I always start flying when I hear this song, it's so beautiful !!

  13. sallyflutterbee

  14. Al Pechulis

    Welcome Back Neil!

  15. Ken Yang

    my favorite tune inside Finn's current release!

  16. 53greenhill

    This is one of the stand-out songs on the album. Wonderful, complex, driving melody. If anything, the album could use one or two more like this as I find it a bit on the slow, quiet side. The songs, taken as a whole, stand up to Neil's usual high quality though
