Hurts - White Horses lyrics

[Verse 1]
Madeleine had a chauffeur
She took a drive to the coastline
She stood on the sand and watched the sunrise
Hoping one day that her prince will come

[Refrain]
Oh-eh, oh-eh
Oh-eh
Oh-eh, oh-eh
Oh-eh, oh-eh

[Verse 2]
Madeleine was a showgirl
She said Paris was not the way it seems
But in Montreux, she found a lover
A blue-eyed rich man who clipped her broken wings
But diamonds and pearls are her religion
Her princes, they come and then they go

[Chorus]
But they ride white horses
(Oh-eh, oh-eh)
Yeah, they ride white horses
(Oh-eh, oh-eh)
And she'll be up on the saddle
And she'll be holding him tight
They'll be galloping thunder
Under the violet sky
As they ride white horses

[Bridge]
Out on the plains
Oh-eh, oh-eh
Oh-eh, oh-eh
White horses
Oh-eh, oh-eh
Oh-eh, oh-eh

[Chorus]
But they ride white horses
(Oh-eh, oh-eh)
Yeah, they ride white horses
(Oh-eh, oh-eh)
And she'll be up on the saddle
And she'll be holding him tight
They'll be galloping thunder
Under the violet sky
As they ride white horses
Out on the plains
