"I Am, I Said"

(As recorded by Neil Diamond)

L.A.'s fine the sun shines most the time
And the feelin' is lay back
Palm trees grow and rent's are low
But you know I keep thinkin' 'bout
Makin' 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 even say why
Leavin' me lonely still

Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of being a king,
And then became one
Well except for the names and a few other changes,
If you talk about me
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've never cared for the sound of being alone

I am, I cried
I am, said I
I am, I am.
