I met you once in a living room in Jackson
Thought of you for six years or more
One hour, you were my secret standard
One night, you walked back through my door
Your lanky frame was not what I remembered
Waking from a long and fitful sleep
But after early morning conversation
I drove to north Texas in disbelief

That quaking in my heart was too deep for words
It tremored and it trembled and it ached
We spoke our peace out on the Golden Gate Bridge
And sealed it with a kiss under magnolias

Fortunes not made and not discovered
There were mentors, we were protégés
From one rite of passage to another
We roughed through the wellsprings of our early days
Underneath that surface there was something
Only you and I could understand
I made my commitment to that long ago
Standing in the hallway down in Dixieland

Cause that quaking in my heart was too deep for words
It tremored and it trembled and it ached
We spoke our peace out on the Golden Gate Bridge
And sealed it with a kiss under magnolias

There’s one thing I love more than Austin
Or curving round the Frio on her turquoise streets
It’s your melancholy dread of Sunday evenings
Your shivering body when it sleeps
The future’s looking stormy here before us
Wars, calamities and tribulations
We’ll hatchet down the windows if we have to
And stand the watch together till the morning

Cause that quaking in my heart’s too deep for words
It tremors and it trembles and it aches
We spoke our peace out on the Golden Gate Bridge
And sealed it with a kiss under magnolias
