It will come like a man walking through fire Walking on a faded rug Backup faces foul like sweat He will hold you with a sailor's smile Pouring hope, From a paper cup Further down the road That's my house - it's best viewed in low light When the girls are sitting on the fence Showing off their pretty legs Their bodies stick inside my head Like toothache Grew up drunk One day they'll give up Shouting like dumb crazy death Selling pockets full of dust But they can't dance with broken backs They can't build on broken trust I've thinned the grass I tread upon In the fields of furthest out My words lost in your smoke My bones bleached in your drought I passed him today - his face was kind've smashed in He's probably dying slowly from something I am too that's why I'm smiling I crawled too far through swollen guts I hope we never meet You wouldn't understand You're holding dead hands Shouting like dumb crazy death Selling pockets full of dust But they can't dance with broken backs They can't build on broken trust I've thinned the grass I tread upon In the fields of furthest out My words lost in your smoke My bones bleached in your drought

Johnny Edson 04:31
Since I was young I've had a dream Of Johnny's body lay by the side of the road His neck all twisted up and cut with stones All because he was running to get home Running to get home Spent his days at the back of the room In the corner of the playground at school He seemed to like his life, he smiled a lot With his face to the wind and his hands in his pockets Trying to get home Life hit Johnny in waves of magic The bronze lesson bell, the angry priests calling Images born when we read the morning stories The cold bottled milk we drank in the storeroom Trying to get home Since I was young I've had this dream It comes when I'm feeling down There is my friend Johnny Edson with his satchel and books Laid on the ground

Smiles Free 02:52
From the silence I knew we were speechless From the front room we heard bare feet on the floor Disgusted at the noise from the bedroom We let our shadows grow long on the floor The nights, they melt into days Days crash into the night... the nights I can taste you with the tips of my ears Time is being mugged, I wonder why we wasted it all

Aberdovey 07:07
He was already forgotten before he left Every step a gift he gave to himself He drank, silhouetted in memories he couldn’t care for It was worthless; he sat staring at the waves wash the sand His soul sank for all the time he’d wasted He could see it now, a life he’d let sag and scrape the ground He started writing down every word he wished he’d said He’ll trade them to useful purpose before everything, everyone is dead Sun…He danced in the Sun With bare feet he waded out into the ocean He stood, dropped the paper and watched the words bleed

about

The freshman EP sees my grey horse emerging from the bedrooms, camp-outs, and farmyard barns where they took their first collective steps together to produce their debut recorded offering, 'The Saltway'.

about

My Grey Horse Stratford Upon Avon, UK

My Grey Horse was formed of 5 friends who spent 5 years making music that anchored their existence.

We're really proud of these records but now it makes sense to move on.

Thanks to anybody who listened to our stuff, bought our records, came to shows or supported us in anyway over the years: we couldn't be more grateful. You've been incredible.

Love from,
Pete, John, Oobah, Joe and Tom.
