She came from the highlands
Rode out in the night
She followed the highways
Down to the city lights

She rode through the town gates
With the country air inside her
The wind and the starry skies came following after

She fell from her horse once
As she raced through the water
She learnt you can’t trust a tight rope
But you can trust the river

Oh I’m in love with you

New to the city streets
I was busking for 2 bucks
She came up beside me
I lifted my voice up

And as I felt her listening
My voice became clearer
I swear I remember
That road turn to a river

She was raised in the highlands
With those white cliffs and rolling stones
And the wind and the laughter
Well they followed her where she goes

Oh I’m in love with you

She fell from her horse once
As she raced through the water
She learnt you can’t trust a tight rope
But you can trust the river

Oh I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
