lyrics

Seven years to the day
You found me in the ordinary way
Seven years to the day
You chose me and beckoned me your way

I was just a slave when they sold me away
But you cherished me as your steed
And for you I'd bleed willingly

Oh how I used to sing the anthems of my home country
Like a fish beneath the waves I knew liberty
Until those traitors came and I was led away silently

And in the grove and in the field
You broke me with an ancient skill

The rolling hills lead to quiet dells
Always
In the whispering mountain stream
You have spoken to me

Oh how I used to sing the anthems of my home country
Like a fish beneath the waves I knew liberty
Until those traitors came and I was led away silently

You stabled me
And harnessed me to a chariot of the king
The rolling hills lead to quiet dells
Always
