The title signifies the singer’s need to free someone from the restrictions and societal conventions.

His wife decides to let him go and “let that pony run away” with his new love.

Then, she moves on, leaves him behind, and starts a fresh new life on her own.

While it sounds a bit depressing (what with her cheating hubby and all), it’s really about finding happiness within yourself and not relying on others to give it to you.

3. “Runaway horses”- Belinda Carlisle

This inspirational song by Belinda Carlisle came out in 1990. It is a pop song that captures the feelings of two runaway horses.

While some people create negativity in your life, there is that one person who fills you with joy and enthusiasm.

This song is all about that person.

It captures the adventures that they come across and how they successfully ride through every obstacle, like the runaway horses who are carefree and enjoy each others’ company.

4. “White horse”- Taylor Swift

Ever felt like you’re waiting for your true love to whisk you away on a white horse and take you to an enchanted castle?

Then this 2008 song sung by Taylor Swift may help you get over that real quick!

The song is about a lover who betrays Taylor. Even though he acts like Prince Charming at first, Taylor quickly learns he’s anything but.

She says that before she met him, she used to be in her dream bubble but now that he has betrayed her, it is too late for his white horse to show up again.

Again, while sad, it really inspires us to find our own happiness and look deeper into people.

5. “A horse with no name”- America

Nature, with its tranquility, has always attracted humankind towards it. This song is the depiction of the same love of humanity towards nature’s beauty.

The horse in this song is nameless and directionless. He has no worries about what the future holds and where he is heading to.

The girl riding him also leaves him on his own to decide which path he wants to follow.

To her surprise, they reach an oasis after traveling for nine days just to find what the true beauty of nature looks like.

They are far away from the human settlements and not missing it because they have found solace in the lap of nature.

Who wouldn’t be inspired by these emotional and inspiring songs? Taylor Swift has moved me to tears!
