Spirit - The Stallion of Cimmaron

The film is from the stables of Disney animation. And the stables is quite figurative, as a horse is the protagonist of the movie. A wild mustang. The spirit of freedom is conveyed by the struggle of the horse and a Red-Indian.

Its one of those films which one must see when feeling down and defeated. Bryan Adams and Hans Zimmer have given the music. Following are the lyrics from "Sound the Bugle" - a track from the OST.

Sound the bugle now - play it just for me
As the seasons change - remember how I used to be
Now I can't go on - I can't even start
I've got nothing left - just an empty heart

I'm a soldier - wounded so I must give up the fight
There's nothing more for me - lead me away...
Or leave me lying here

Sound the bugle now - tell them I don't care
There's not a road I know - that leads to anywhere
Without a light feat that I will - stumble in the dark
Lay right down - decide not to go on

Then from on hight - somewhere in the distance
There's a voice that calls - remember who your are
If you lose yourself - your courage soon will follow

So be strong tonight - remember who you are
Ya you're a soldier now - fighting in abattle
To be free once more -Ya that's worth fighting for
