I Am I Said Lyrics

LA's fine, sunshine most of the time
The feeling is laid back
Palm trees grow and the 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
Leavin' 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

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...

Its all good, He has filled many large arenas in his time and I have been preforming his songs since I was 17 and everyone who listens relates to it. I have only seen him live once but he relates his message with every song. I just takes pure talent. Something few people really have.

Mindless junk? As compared to today's music where you can't even make out the lyrics. And then when you find out the lyrics, totally meaningless crap. Niel Diamond is a legend with qualities you would never understand. That's why you are where you are, nowhere going fast!

This song boils down to having an empty spot in your heart...without knowing what it is. We try all kinds of crazy things to fill it...money, drugs, sex, nicer cars, fancy homes. It doesn't matter if you are poor or super rich. Even Bono proclaimed he "still can't find what I'm looking for." I wish I had the answer for them. My best answer is from Curly in "City Slickers."

Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is?
[holds up one finger]
Curly: This.
Mitch: Your finger?
Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don't mean shit.
Mitch: But, what is the "one thing?"
Curly: [smiles] That's what *you* have to find out.
