about

I was worried by the provocative title of this song, but I think the shock-factor is appropriate for my favorite and most personal song of my EP. The term "bleed on the saddle" refers to horseback riding during Medieval times. The song, as a whole, is about finding that damaged person who you can't help but find promise in, and you go after them.

lyrics

Verse 1

Been stuck on my love life lately
Been feelin’ so crazy
If feelings flow like water
Water falls every day here
Been checkin’ my watch, and
I’m feelin’ like maybe
I think I want ya
But I can’t find you lately

Prechorus

Ooohh, you been bringin’ my whole world down
I’ve been thinkin’ of you
In my mind it goes ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
The whole day through
You’ll be on my mind, ohh, time will haunt you
I want you

Chorus

Ya bleed on the saddle
And I know what you’re fightin’ for
Ya bleed on the saddle
You’re everything I wanted and more
(Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle, [the saddle], woah)
More (Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle, woah)

Verse 2

Been stuck on my love life lately
Was hopin’ you’d save me
And I know you’re cautious
But I am praying
Been checkin’ my watch, and
I’ve been waiting
There ain’t no stoppin’
My heart from cavin’

Prechorus

Ooohh, you been bringin’ my whole world down
I’ve been thinkin’ of you
In my mind it goes ‘round and ‘round and ‘round
The whole day through
You’ve be on my mind, ohh, time will haunt you
I want you

Chorus

Ya bleed on the saddle
And I know what you’re fightin’ for
Ya bleed on the saddle
You’re everything I wanted and more
(Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle, the saddle)
More (Ya bleed on the saddle, the saddle)
