From the recording Change In The Wind


There's a wild rose near the Winter Island Gate
through the iron bars, barely holding on
I sometimes see you there, but every time, every time I wake
the wild rose and you are gone

We sometimes meet in town, and when you spend the night
lavender and red, you blossom until dawn
but it's only thorns I hold when I'm holding on, holding on too tight
the wild rose and you are gone

Be careful when you touch
try not to help too much
they have to be left wild
like nature's child

It will bloom again in spring on the island all alone
leave it room to grow, let the sun shine strong
And I know that if I try to keep you here, to keep you for my own
the wild rose and you are gone
