If wishes were horses beggers would surely ride
into the moon light across a star lit sky
If I could find you lost in the looking glass
would you embrace me will we be one at last

If wishes were horses beggars would surely ride
into the moon light across a jagged sky
If all my sweet dreams would some how come to pass
I'd ride a midnight mare I'd ride it through the looking glass.

I'll ride a dark horse for all my days
I'll ride a dark horse to my grave
I'll find the love that my fool hearts thrown away
I'll ride a dark horse for all my days

This song has an ominous beginning. Nice guitar work. Loved the authenticity of the sound of the finger squeak on the strings. Nice use of common saying "If wishes were horses then beggars would ride."

Great song guys! The lyrics are really neat! The instrumentation is very good! The vocals are very good! Loved it! Nice work!

I really like the overall vibe of the song, especially the embracing of the dark side! :)
