On Being Frank

Original Artist: Ben Folds Five

I had it all
Or should I say I saw it all?
And it's a long way from the dustbin of New Jersey to the top
Who would have known?
Who would have known

I had a dream, but dreams had other plans for me
For 30 years I set the thermostat
Where Frank Sinatra liked it,
Pulled his girls and hung his hats
I never knew which ones were mine
Now he's gone, and I'm alone

And I don't know where I might be going
I rode the wind, the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside thumbing home
But home, for me was always someone else you know
That shadows always fall, when the sun goes down

I shook the hands, a few dames and presidents
And though they always smile politely
With the measure of the core
Still their eyes would stand me on me
For a glimpse of something more
But now he's gone,
Now they're gone

And I don't know where I might be going
I rode the wind, the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside thumbing home
But home, for me was always someone else you know
That shadows always fall, when the sun goes down

Alone,
The shadow of a star, don't you know
That shadows always fall,
Yeah shadows always fall,
When the sun goes down

And I don't know where I might be going
I rode the wind, the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside thumbing home
But home, for me was always someone else you know
That shadows always fall, when the sun goes down
