Neil Diamond

I am, I said

LA's fine, sunshine most o' the time
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'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.

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'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.
