Fragile

I look out on these shields of heather

'Cross this countryside

I wonder how they've grown together

While people live such separate lives

Think I'll stay inside for the winter

'Cause the weather's in my bones

And the wind could shatter bone to splinter

Then howl me back home

Fragile as the lady of the harbour

Fragile as her torch that glows

Fragile as the Gulf Stream waters

To the Texas coast

To the Texas coast

I stared up at the faces in the mountain

Just a year ago

Laughin' in the spirit of America

Singin' in the snow

Now I wish I felt as strong as that mountain

Just carved in stone

I wish I was the Gulf Stream water

And I could sail you home

Fragile as the lady of the harbour

Fragile as her torch that glows

Fragile as the gulf stream waters

To the Texas coast

To the Texas coast

I would give you all that's in me

Though part of me is gone

If I could have that day upon the mountain

For the snow and the song

Here's to love and all that it changes

When you're alone out in that storm

'Cause if I'd had a shield of heather

I'd have never loved at all

Fragile as the lady of the harbour

Fragile as her torch that glows

Fragile as the Gulf Stream waters

To the Texas coast

To the Texas coast, I would sail you home

To the Texas coast, I would sail you home

To the Texas coast


Mirror lyrics:

To the Texas coast

To the Texas coast, I would sail you home

To the Texas coast, I would sail you home

To the Texas coast

Fragile as the Gulf Stream waters

Fragile as her torch that glows

Fragile as the lady of the harbour

I'd have never loved at all

'Cause if I'd had a shield of heather

When you're alone out in that storm

Here's to love and all that it changes

For the snow and the song

If I could have that day upon the mountain

Though part of me is gone

I would give you all that's in me

To the Texas coast

To the Texas coast

Fragile as the gulf stream waters

Fragile as her torch that glows

Fragile as the lady of the harbour

And I could sail you home

I wish I was the Gulf Stream water

Just carved in stone

Now I wish I felt as strong as that mountain

Singin' in the snow

Laughin' in the spirit of America

Just a year ago

I stared up at the faces in the mountain

To the Texas coast

To the Texas coast

Fragile as the Gulf Stream waters

Fragile as her torch that glows

Fragile as the lady of the harbour

Then howl me back home

And the wind could shatter bone to splinter

'Cause the weather's in my bones

Think I'll stay inside for the winter

While people live such separate lives

I wonder how they've grown together

'Cross this countryside

I look out on these shields of heather
