I Am… I Said – Neil Diamond lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

L.A.’s fine, the sun shines most the timeAnd the feeling is “lay back”Palm trees grow and rents are lowBut you know I keep thinkin’ aboutMaking my way back
Well I’m New York City born and raisedBut nowadaysI’m lost between two shoresL.A.’s fine, but it ain’t homeNew York’s homeBut it ain’t mine no more
“I am”… I saidTo no one thereAnd no one heard at allNot even the chair
“I am”… I cried“I am”… said IAnd I am lost and I can’tEven say whyLeavin’ me lonely still
Did you ever read about a frogWho dreamed of bein’ a kingAnd then became oneWell except for the namesAnd a few other changesIf you talk about meThe story is the same one
But I got an emptiness deep insideAnd I’ve triedBut it won’t let me goAnd I’m not a man who likes to swearBut I never caredFor the sound of being alone
“I am”… I saidTo no one thereAnd no one heard at allNot even the chair“I am”… I cried“I am”… said IAnd I am lost and I can’tEven say why“I am”… I said“I am”… I cried“I am”
