Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susanne the plans we 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 and I thought they'd never end
I've 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've got to help me to 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

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 I'd see you again

So I'm walking my mind to an easy time
My back turned towards the sun
Lord, knows the cold wind blows
It'll turn your head around

Yeah, there's hours of time on the telephone line
Talking 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 and I thought they'd never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you, somehow one more time again, yeah

Thought I'd see you one more time again
There's been a few things coming my way this time around, now
Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you fire and rain
Thought I'd see you just one more time, Susanne
