All of the speed and the strength he gave
And one more kiss tonight
From some tall stable girl
Like your steed in his reins
Makes you to curse in your sleep at night
One more drink tonight
One more gift to bring
One more tired thing
She's like grace from the earth
Tangled too tight and too long to fight
When your want from the day
Where he lays in the reins
