The Centaur | J. Glassock

On that hill a centaur stands, half stallion half man
and his hoofs are the hoofs of a stallion
and his strength it’s the strength of a stallion
and his pride the pride of a stallion
But his tears are the tears of a man

Over the hill the centaur goes
round the mountain and back again
a little too far from the world of dreams
and just beyond the world of a man

Once the centaur loved a mare
who rode beside him everywhere
(They were) racing chasing cross the fields

But with the racing and chasing done
they stood silent and silent there
But the centaur, he had words to say
(But) the mare had only the soul of a mare

Over the hill he rode on
round the mountain and back again
a little too far from the world of dreams
and just beyond the world of a man

Once the centaur loved a girl
who saw his golden aspiration
(They were) walking whispering through the woods
the centaur and the lovely girl

But with the walking and whispering done
they stood silent and then they cried
For the centaur felt the stirring breeze
He needed someone who could ride by his side

Over the hill climbing the mountain and back again
not a quite reaching his world of dreams
and still beyond the world of a man
