13 Horses

This song is by Alexander Rybak and appears on the album Fairytales (2009).

13 horses, swimming in the sea
Waiting for someone to find them
Their ship is gone, and now they are alone
With water everywhere around them

The men were saved, from the sinking ship
Right before it started, to burn
And while they're safe, their loyal friends need help
Patiently waiting for their turn

13 horses, swimming in the sea
They don't even know, it's pointless
The pride remains, but this time it won't help
They used to be so tall, and suddenly they're small

There's a couple, way too far behind
Soon they will be out of sight
But then who cares, they're dying anyway
All of them are doomed this night

11 horses, swimming in the sea
The sea they thought was just a river
They're used to this, it's probably just a race
That helps to ease their minds, but where's the finish line

The night groes dark, the body wants to rest
It hurts to breathe, and still they do their best
They want to live, no matter for how long
Their thoughts have disappeared, 'cause now they're pretty scared

7 horses, struggling in the sea
Waiting for someone to find them
They don't look back, 'cause what's the point of that
There's only death behind them

They cry for help, but help will never come
They don't know where to swim, or where they're swimming from
They try to swim some more, when panic starts to spread
They're swimming into shore, but only in their heads

The 3 last horses, dying in a sea
Shouting of their cries for no one
They're born to win, they're screaming in their hearts
The strength of thousand men, they're fighting till the end

The sun is up, birds are everywhere
They're flying high, surfing in the air
It's nice to live, when life is such a bless
One horse that swims, it seems to be the last

The thirteenth horse, has always been the best
His owner will be proud, but now he wants to rest
He's longing for his home, the girl will give him food
'Good boy', she'll say, together they will play

13 horses, swimming in the sea
Soon they will be gone forever
And while they swim, one thing still remains
And that's the hope that never dies

It never dies
It never dies
