I AM I SAID

L.A.'s fine, the sun shines most the time

And the feeling is 'lay back'

Palm trees grow, and rents are low

But you know I keep thinkin' about

Making my way back.

 

Well, I'm New York City born and raised

But nowadays, I'm lost between two shores

L.A.'s fine, but it ain't home

New York's home, but it ain't mine no more.

 

I am, I said to no one there

And no one heard at all not even the chair

I am, I cried, I am, said I

And I am lost, and I can't even say why

Leavin' me lonely still.

 

Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of bein' a king

And then became one.

Well, except for the names and a few other changes

If you talk about me, the story's the same one

But I got an emptiness deep inside

And I've tried, but it won't let me go

And I'm not a man who likes to swear

But I never cared for the sound of being alone.

 

I am, I said to no one there

An no one heard at all not even the chair

I am, I cried, I am, said I

And I am lost, and I can't even say why.

 

I am, I said to no one there

An no one heard at all not even the chair

I am, I cried…
