See Myself in You

Song Notes

TK/Tom Prasada-Rao

–The inspiration for this song came from a brief encounter Tom and I had with a homeless man in Houston. He called himself "the Can Man," and he was picking up soda cans along Montrose Avenue as Tom and walked to dinner after sound check at Anderson Fair (one of my favorite places to play). The Can Man had such a bright spirit. No doubt it fueled this song, which Tom and I wrote the next night in Austin.

[Randy Travis’ version was featured in "Touched by An Angel."]

If I met you on the corner
Would I know you as you are
Would I take you for a stranger
And brush past you in the door
If you called me would I hear you
Would I walk away too soon
If I lingered for a moment
Would I see myself in you

If I fought you as a soldier
If I had you in my sight
Would you ask me to remember
Who imagined I was right
If you witnessed my surrender
Do I know what I would do
If you held me like my brother
Would I see myself in you

Well I dreamed my end was near
I was almost gone
If I dream that dream from here
Can I still come home

If you called me would I hear you
Do I know what I would do
If you held me like my lover
Would I see myself in you

If you held me like my mother
Would I see myself in you
