Kathy's Song Eva Cassidy

Kathy's Song(Full Version)-Live by Eva Cassidy. We know, of course, this song was written and performed by Paul Simon with Art Garfunkel singing vocals. On other occasions, Paul has also sung the vocals of this song. Notice I did not say Art was the first and original performer of this song.

This is a beautiful, reflective, introspective song which is exquisitely sung by Eva. Below are the complete lyrics of the full version. The lyrics in brackets are now included by Eva to complete the full version.

I hear the drizzle of the rain
Like a memory it falls
Soft and warm continuing
Tapping on my roof and walls

(And from the shelter of my mind
Through the window of my eyes
I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
To a land where my heart lies)

My mind's distracted and confused
My thoughts are many miles away
They lie with you when you're asleep
Kiss you when you start the day

(Now the song I was writing is left undone
I don't know why I spend my time
Writing songs I can't believe
With words that tear and strain to rhyme

And so you see I have come to doubt
All that I once held was true
I stand alone without beliefs
The only truth I know is you)

And as I watch the drops of rain
Weave their weary paths and die
I know that I am like the rain
There before the grace of you go I
