I am i said Neil Diamond
[G]LA's fine, the sun shines, most 'the time
And the [C]feeling is laid back
[D7] [D7] [D7] [D7]
Palm trees grow and rents are low but-I-gotta-feeling-like-I-gotta-start
Making my way [G]back
[G]I'm New York City born and raised but nowadays I'm l[G7]ost between two sh[C]ores.
[D7]LA's fine but it ain't home and Ne[D7]w York's home but it ain't mine no m[G]ore.
[G]I am I said
To noone th[C]ere
And noone heard at all, not [Am]even the [G]chair
[G]I am I cried
I am said [C]I
And Iam lost and I don't [Am]even know w[G]hy
(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.
