I was half, not whole
In step with none
Reaching through this world
In need of one

Come show me your kindness
In your arms I know, I’ll find this
Woman, don’t you know, with you I’m born again
Lying safe with you I’m born again

Come bring me your softness
Comfort me through all this madness
Woman, don’t you know, with you I’m born again

Come give me your sweetness
Now there’s you, there is no weakness
Lying safe within your arms, I’m born again
Woman, don’t you know, with you I’m born again

I was half, not whole
In step with none
Reaching through this world
In need of one

Come show me your kindness
In your arms I know I’ll find this
Woman, don’t you know, with you I’m born again
Lying safe with you, I’m born again

About Billy Preston:

William Everett “Billy” Preston (September 2, 1946 – June 6, 2006) was an American musician whose work included R&B, rock, soul, funk and gospel. Preston became famous first as a session musician with artists including Little Richard, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and The Beatles, and was later successful as a solo artist with hit pop singles including “Outa-Space”, its sequel, “Space Race”, “Will It Go Round in Circles” and “Nothing from Nothing”, and a string of albums and guest appearances with Eric Clapton, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and others. In addition, Preston was co-author, with The Beach Boys‘ Dennis Wilson, of “You Are So Beautiful,” recorded by Preston and later a #5 hit for Joe Cocker.

Alongside Tony Sheridan, Billy Preston was the only other musician to be credited on a Beatles recording: the artists on the number-one hit “Get Back” are given as “The Beatles with Billy Preston“. Stephen Stills asked Preston if he could use Preston’s phrase “if you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with” and created the hit song. Billy Preston was called the Fifth Beatle because he played keyboards on Let it Be, The White Album and Abbey Road. He also played on the Rolling Stones’s hit song Miss You, and often played with Eric Clapton. He also did the organ work on Sly & the Family Stone‘s greatest hits.

Billy Preston was born on September 2, 1946, in Houston, Texas. When he was three, the family moved to Los Angeles where Preston began playing piano while sitting on his mother Robbie’s lap. Noted as a child prodigy, by the age of ten, Preston was playing organ onstage backing several gospel singers such as Mahalia Jackson, James Cleveland and Andrae Crouch. At twelve, he appeared in the W.C. Handy biopic starring Nat King Cole entitled, St. Louis Blues, playing W.C. Handy at a younger age. A year prior, Preston appeared on Cole’s national TV show singing the Fats Domino hit, “Blueberry Hill”. Preston’s solo career began to decline after 1976. After years with A&M Records, he switched labels, moving to Motown Records where, in 1980, he had a top-ten hit duet with Syreeta Wright with the ballad “With You I’m Born Again“, which reached number four on the charts in the US. Failing thereafter to match its success, Preston left the label in 1984 and focused on session work.

In 1962, Billy Preston joined Little Richard’s band as an organist and it was while performing in Hamburg that Preston met the Beatles. In 1963 he played the organ on Sam Cooke’s Night Beat album and released his debut album, 16 Yr Old Soul, that same year for Cooke’s SAR Records label. In 1965, he released the album The Most Exciting Organ Ever, and that same year played organ and performed on the rock and roll show, Shindig!. In 1967, he joined Ray Charles‘ band. Following his exposure with Charles, several musicians began asking Preston to come to sessions, most notably The Beatles, who asked him to contribute to two of their albums, Abbey Road and Let It Be.

About Syreeta Wright:

Syreeta Wright (August 3, 1946 – July 6, 2004), who recorded professionally under the single name Syreeta, was a Grammy-nominated American singer-songwriter, best known for her work with ex-husband Stevie Wonder and Billy Preston. Syreeta Wright‘s next effort came courtesy of a chance meeting with Billy Preston, who had signed with Motown in early 1979. Motown assigned the two to collaborate on a pop ballad for the movie Fast Break. Wright and Preston provided the soundtrack of the film and their first collaboration, “With You I’m Born Again“, resulted in an international hit reaching number-four US and number-two UK in late 1979. The success of the song led Motown to renew Syreeta Wright‘s contract, which was due to expire that year, with neither side looking to renegotiate. Wright and Preston continued their collaborations until 1982.
