Melanie Martinez – Rocking Horse Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I’m in the process of counting sheep
But they’re all so bloody
My hushed little baby still makes a peep
There’s a ghost in the nursery
I’m haunted even when you’re never there
And I’m taunted by your teddy bear
Like it’s talkin’ and it’s asking me
Why you never came home

[Pre-Chorus]
I missed the shower
I miss your cradle
I miss your carriage
I miscarriaged
I miscarriaged, mis-miscarriaged
And you never came home

[Chorus]
Back and forth, back and forth
Move back and forth like a rocking horse
That rocking horse that your daddy bought you
That you never saw goes back and forth
Back and forth, back and forth
Move back and forth like a rocking horse
That rocking horse that your daddy bought you
That you never saw goes back and forth

[Verse 2]
I’m in the process of apologies
There’s a husband who doesn’t know that I’m guilty
There’s a harsh little secret inside of me
And a ghost in the nursery
Oh, honey, you’ll never see your son become a star
Or the money you spent on that box of cigars
And I’m sorry you never got to hand them out

[Pre-Chorus]
This is for all the horses never given a horse
That never grew to be Porsches
This is for all the divorces that were caused by abortions
Babies having babies and babies having abortions

[Chorus]
Back and forth, back and forth
Move back and forth like a rocking horse
That rocking horse that your daddy bought you
That you never saw goes back and forth
Back and forth, back and forth
Move back and forth like a rocking horse
That rocking horse that your daddy bought you
That you never saw goes back and forth

[Bridge]
Rockin’ horse, rockin’ horse
Ooh, back and forth
You never came home
Rockin’ horse, rockin’ horse
Ooh, back and forth
And you never came home

[Chorus]
Back and forth, back and forth
Move back and forth like a rocking horse
That rocking horse that your daddy bought you
That you never saw goes back and forth
Back and forth, back and forth
Move back and forth like a rocking horse
That rocking horse that your daddy bought you
That you never saw goes back and forth
