FIRE AND RAIN

James Taylor

 

Just yesterday morning,

they let me know you were gone.


Suzanne, the plans they made

put an end to you.


I walked out this morning

and I wrote down this song,


I just can't remember who to send it to.


 

I've seen fire and I've seen rain.

I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.


I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend

But I always thought that I'd see you again.


Won't you look down upon me, Jesus,

You've got to help me make a stand.


You've just got to see me through another day.


My body's aching and my time is at hand and

I won't make it any other way.


 

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain.

I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.


I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend

But I always thought that I'd see you again.


 

Been walking my mind to an easy time,

my back turned towards the sun.


Lord knows when the cold wind blows

it'll turn your head around.


Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line

to talk about things to come.


Sweet dreams and flying machines

in pieces on the ground.



 

Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain.

I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end


I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend

But I always thought that I'd see you baby,

one more time again, now.



Thought I'd see you one more time again.


There's just a few things

coming my way this time around, now.


Thought I'd see you,

thought I'd see you, fire and rain, now.
