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
