James Taylor Lyrics Explained
Angela first knew of Jesus as a child but did not walk with him until she was an adult. She now hopes to share the Good News with the world. Just yesterday morning, they let me know you were gone. Susanne, 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.
