I see the town Where we were born, I see the place We were raised, I see all the things you wanted That I never gave. I see sadness, I see sorrow, I see pain in your face, But I just can't see A stranger in my place.
I can see now Where you might grow tired of dreams That don't come true, I can see where I have fallen short Of the things I promised you. I can see now through my tear filled eyes no love on your face, I must get used to seein' strangers in my place.
"A Stranger in My Place" (co-written with Kin Vassy), on Something's Burning (1970)
You touched my soul with your beautiful song You even had me singin' along right with you, you said "I need you", then you changed the words and added harmony Then you sang the song you had written for me to someone new
Oh, but nobody sings a love song quite like you do Oh, and nobody else can make me sing along Nobody else can make me feel things are right When I know they're wrong, Nobody sings a love song quite like you.
Right when a man's, doin all that he planned And he thinks he's got just what he needs Life will deliver, a shot that will shiver him Drivin him down to his knees Make him start giving, living, livin' again.
Well it's your mind, that tricks you in believin' everytime Love will turn you around, turn you around Well it's your heart, that talks you into stayin' where you are Love will turn you around, turn you around.
You never know how much you love somebody until they’re gone. I’ve had so many wonderful years and wonderful times with my friend Kenny, but above all the music and the success I loved him as a wonderful man and a true friend.
