It’s Time You Grab Your Horses And Run

by Duncan Jones

I found an old one
Wandering through the night
He said, “Save your strength
With me there is no fight.”
Then he pointed back the way
From which I’d come
And he said, “It’s time …
Now grab your horses and run …
Run back to where you live
And remember …
Just run, run back to where you live
And remember …
Don’t you ever let the takers
Decide what you give!”

Then I found an old one
Gazing at the stars
She said, “You’ve got the look
If you’d like you’ll travel far.”
Then she pointed out away
From where I’d come
And she said, “It’s time …
Now grab your horses and run …
Run the world awaits my son
And remember …
Just run, run the world awaits my son
And remember …
Don’t you ever let your style
Decide your fun!”

Then I found an old one
From another time
She said, “You remind me of
The sweetest girl of mine.”
Then she pointed out away
From where I’d come
And she said, “It’s time …
Now grab your horses and run …
Run there’s so much good in you
And remember …
Just run, run there’s so much good in you
And remember …
Don’t you ever let your fear
Decide what you do!”

Then I found an old one
Sleeping by a tree
She said, “When I look at you
I see a bit of me.”
Then she pointed out away
From where I’d come
And she said, “It’s time …
Now grab your horses and run …
Run you’re brave and this I know
And remember …
Just run, run you’re strong and this I know

And remember …
Don’t you ever let a thief
Decide what you show!”

Then I found an old one
Dancing in the rain
He said, “Crazy maybe
But I’ve never felt so sane.”
Then he pointed out away
From where I’d come
And he said, “It’s time …
Now grab your horses and run …
Run and you make them throw a strike
And remember …
Just run, run and you make them throw a strike
And remember …
Don’t you ever let the trend
Decide what you like!”

Then I found an old one
Stopped to tie her shoe
She said, “Funny I still tie
How I used to.”
Then she pointed out away
From where I’d come
And she said, “It’s time …
Now grab your horses and run …
Run sometimes you’ll have to shove
And remember …
Just run, run sometimes you’ll have to shove
And remember …
Don’t you ever let the hate
Decide who you love!”
