Neil Diamond - I am... I said
Tekst en muziek: Neil Diamond
(1971)






LA is fine, the sun shines most the time
And the feeling is laid back
Palm trees grow and rents are low
But you know, I keep thinking about making my way back



Well, I’m New York City born and raised
But nowadays I’m lost between two shores
LA is 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
Leaving 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
The story is the same one



But I’ve got a emptyness deep inside
And I 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
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



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