I Am I Said
First four lines are spoken, next two sung:
LA's fine, the sun shines, most 'the time
And the feeling is laid back
Palm trees grow and rents are low but-I-gotta-feeling-like-I-gotta-start
Making my way back
I'm New York City born and raised but nowadays I'm lost between two shores.
LA's fine but it ain't home and New York's home but it ain't mine no more.
I am I said
To noone there
And noone heard at all, not even the chair
I am I cried
I am said I
And I am lost and I don't even know why
(tacit) Leaving me lonely still
And suddenly became one?
Well, except for the names and a few other changes
My story's the same one
But I have an emptiness deep inside so strong 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.
