Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susanne the plans they made put an end to you
I woke up this morning and wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
Seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me Jesus you got to help me make a stand
You just got to see me through another day
My body's aching, my time is at hand
I just can't make it any other way

I've seen fire and I've seen rain
Seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you again

I've been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned t'wards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it will turn your head around
There's hours of time on the telephone line they'll 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
Seen sunny days that I thought would never end
Seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you one more time again

Words and music by James Taylor
