go lightly on this fragile earth
we are all strangers on this shore
remember what your life is worth
and what it was we came here for

and hidden deep within our heart
there’s a light that shines on everything
on the right and the wrong
on the weak and the strong
on the prayers and the songs that we sing

go lightly on this precious land
we’re part of everything we see
a tear-drop on the ocean
the wind that whispers in the trees

the wind that cries in the holy rage
at the deeds and the damage we have done
for how little we care for the life that is there
go lightly native son

go lightly on this sacred earth
go lightly on your way
you are among the ones who took a second birth
and we are blessed
more than words can ever say

and maybe sometimes your heart is broken
but it’s nothing that love cannot repair
so with the gifts that you bring remember one thing
it’s the love for yourself that you share
