Guns and Horses” is a song by English recording artist Ellie Goulding from her debut album, Lights (2010). The song was released digitally on 16 May 2010 and physically the day after as the album’s third single
Regarding the meaning behind “Guns and Horses”, Goulding told Sky Songs:

I wrote “Guns And Horses” about a romance that began online hence the lyric ‘you found me, at a screen you sit at permanently’. I wanted the guy to feel more than he did for me but through no fault of his own he couldn’t. It’s a song about frustration essentially. My producer [Starsmith] made me laugh at the end, I can’t repeat what he called me though.

The song was used in the sixth episode of the second season of the American television series Drop Dead Diva, “Begin Again”, originally aired 18 July 2010.
