Hide Lyrics Hint
[C] Check, [Gm] check this thing off.
[F] [C] It's a little echo, like a reverb.
Take it [G] off.
Yeah, that's [Bb] it, perfect.
Check, check.
It's one [C] of my favorite songs.
Just [Gm] yesterday morning, [F] they let me know you [C] were gone.
Yeah.
[G] Suzanne, the plans they [Bb] made put an end to you.
Yeah, yeah.
[C] I [Gm] walked out this morning, [F] and I wrote down [C] this song.
Just [G] can't remember [Bb] who to send it to.
.
[C] So much pressure and pain, [G] there's a stress in the game.
[Bb] Because when it's different, it's just different.
It's never the same.
[C] And I expect it to rain.
[G] Because really, where I'm [Bb] from, the sun don't never get to come.
[C] My daddy used to tell me [G] about the passion of Christ.
[Bb] Instead of daddy's advice, I went to bagging up wife.
[C] So many lonely nights, [G] so many memories of dead [Bb] homies.
just out of my mind that I hold them tight.
I [C] shake it twice, blow once, [G] then I roll the dice.
and [Bb] pray to God that I don't get killed overnight.
My [C] brother tried to go and [G] rob a delivery guy.
He [Bb] never thought that pizza man was equipped with a knife.
[C] Never thought that'd be the way [G] that my brother would die.
So [Gm] now I'm thinking, [F] what kind [Bb] of big brother am I?
.
[C] That's the type of thoughts late at [G] night.
that's in my mind [Bb] to protect and provide.
And I tried, but I [F] failed.
Yeah.
I've [Dm] seen [G] fire and [C] I've seen rain.
I was on my way down to Gulf Shores with my father.
[F] for the family vacation [Dm] for the first time in [G] 15 [C] years.
to go see my brother Roger, Scott, and my sister Shelby.
[F] We listened to this [D] song together.
[C] And my dad began to tell me the story about where.
James [Bb] Taylor was at in his life [Am] when he wrote this [C] song.
I felt so connected to it.
We all been through pain, fire, and rain.
[G] Lord, I'm trying to change.
[Bb] Feel like it's ice cold blood flowing inside of my veins.
Feel [C] like it's nothing but bad [G] memories inside of my brain.
[Bb] And I'm scared to get burned, but I desire the flame.
It [C] makes no sense at all.
I [G] swear it really makes no sense [Bb] at all.
I pray my brother finally makes it out them prison [C] walls.
My daughter's four [G] and a half now.
She's getting [Bb] big.
But I don't get to see her because of the life I [C] live.
I'm such a bad [G] father.
I'm always on the [Bb] road.
I'm always chasing rainbows full of pots of [C] gold.
Man, and [G] I'm believing in you, God.
[Bb] I hope you're trying because I can't see it through the [C] fog.
Oh, Lord.
[G] And I swear I feel so close [Bb] to you.
I fell in love with a girl, almost proposed [C] to her.
I [G] almost got on one knee, [Bb] but she couldn't accept me for me.
For real.
[F] I've [Dm] seen [G] fire and I've [C] seen rain.
One take.
.
[F] Seen sunny days that [Dm] I thought [C] would never end.
I always said this rap shit's easy.
[F] Seen lonely times when I could [D] not [C] find a friend.
.
So [Bb] here it goes.
But I [Am] always thought that [C] I'd see [Gm] you [C] again.
.
I sat alone in [G] the room and contemplate [Bb] suicide.
Then did it so the same night and said, I'm doing [C] fine.
Nobody [G] understands how I feel [Bb] inside.
I just try to tell them about a million [C] times.
I feel so [G] close yet feel so [Bb] far.
I'm always on my grind.
I'm going so [C] hard.
[G] Now, is there really an [Bb] afterlife for people like me out here.
that ain't acting [C] right?.
Lord, [G] a picture's worth a thousand [Bb] words.
Picture a young man getting a thousand [C] murders.
Picture [G] a man getting a thousand [Bb] birds, getting a thousand years without a [C] word.
Some [G] days I feel like I have to [Bb] pray and close my eyes and pray I make it to a happy [C] place.
[G] Yeah.
[Bb] And that's the truth.
Come on.
[F] I've [Dm] seen [C] fire and I've seen rain.
.
[F] I've seen sunny days that [Dm] I thought would [C] never end.
.
I've [F] seen lonely times when [Dm] I could not [C] find a friend.
.
But [Bb] I always [Am] thought that [Gm] I'd see you [C] again.
.
[F] I've [Dm] seen [G] fire and I've [C] seen rain.
.
I've [F] seen sunny days that [Dm] I thought [C] would never end.
.
I've [F] seen lonely times when I [G] could not find a [C] friend.
.
But [Bb] I always [Am] thought that [C] I'd see you.
