This song is mainly about anxiety and depression - written from personal experiences.

It's the envy of having your friends always chiming in and smiling. The disappointment when they tell you the old cliche'd "Things could always be worse", "There are people worse off than you" and "Just cheer up" phrases.

It's a cacophony of emotions and I hope it speaks to people who are struggling or, alternatively, are on the other side of the fence and don't realise just how insensitive they are being to a friend who really needs your support.

Don't be afraid to feel things & don't be ashamed to admit you are not always OK.

All proceeds go to Mind Charity who do excellent work.

White Horse (Lyrics)

(Verse 1)
And I won’t pretend to understand
The smile in your eyes now
Cause I could just crash land
The peaks on the horizon - the ones you think I can climb

Cause when I fall, fall, fall right off the edge
All I really needed was a friend
But I’ll fall, fall fall, right off the edge
To the abyss now
But somehow …

(Chorus)
You come chiming in,
And you’re all smiles again
Telling me to “cheer back up”
I’m sorry I’m not perfect like you
And you’ll come riding in
On your White Horse again
Conserved by metal skin
I’m sorry I can’t fight this like you,
Like you

(Verse 2)
They say “You’re such a downer”
When this mist surrounds ya
A fist pounds and pounds ya
Beats you down a -
A narrowing path with a harrowing laugh
Because they can’t see the beating they just turn their backs
You’re embalmed, unblemished - I’m so damn pathetic
The scratches on your armour won’t even need a medic
Mine pierce right through my heart - there, I’ve said it
It drags me down even if you don’t seem to get it.

You’ve got the armour, you’ve got the sword
Another metaphor that leaves you so self absorbed
Is it an act you perform?
Or the armour you’ve worn?
That really makes you believe that you have won this war?
I’m amazed, you’re unscathed, totally unfazed
While each day I paint a fake smile on my face
Curled up feeling safer the smaller I am
I don’t expect much - I’d just like you to give a damn

(Chorus)
You come chiming in,
And you’re all smiles again
Telling me to “cheer back up”
I’m sorry I’m not perfect like you
And you’ll come riding in
On your White Horse again
Conserved by metal skin
I’m sorry I can’t fight this like you,
Like you
