Actually was written for his daughters life..I was thinking along the same lines that no matter what a song was written about, people will have it mean whatever is going on or went on in their life, what Sticks to their heart. But the conversation goes as follows...
Rickie Lee Jones: He sent me a thank you note last year,about the song, what it meant to him… I could tell he kind of felt like the song was his, in a way. That’s what you want. You want people to make a nest out of the song. it’s their home then. I just brought the twigs and the mud. People decide what to do with it.
Daryl Braithwaite: From what people know of that song for 25 years, I was the one that put it out. But in essence, it still belongs to Rickie, and Walter Becker. Her version is lovely. Then you have to give credit to Simon Hussey, who then took that version and turned it into more accessible pop, maybe. There’s no doubt: I love it. I will fight for it, I will stick up for it. I know at the end of the day it’s not mine.
Rickie Lee Jones: One thing’s for sure, ‘The Horses’ has remained the anthem of my daughter’s life. It is for her that the song was written. I sing it for her. But I am so grateful Daryl sings it for whoever he sang it for. It resonated.

I do not have an interpretation but it is important to notr that Ricky Lee Jones wrote it with Walter Becker not Darryl Braithwaite.

It is about doing what your heart tells you to do. Daryl Braithwaite sings we will fly way up high he is talking about not limits and doing what you want to do
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

it does seem to be a warning, as if the parent may not be there in body. but i meant only that in periods of separation my spirit would be near. the cry of the child -'casts her wild note over water and sky" seems to be acceptance of all that the baby will become, and celebrate this moment of infancy. with some kind of determination, which suggests conflict to overcome. its like an iching song!

A man is dying and is trying to tell his daughter about heaven and how he'll always be there even when he is dead to make her happy and pick her up.
