Ben Folds Five - On Being Frank

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
Old his girl hands on his hats
I never knew which one were mine
Now he's gone
I'm alone
And I don't know
where I might be going
I heard the wind
the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside
from the house
But how 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 heard the wind
the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside
from the house
But how for me was always
someone else you know
That shadows always fall
when the sun goes down
Alone is 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 heard the wind
the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside
from the house
Then how for me was always
someone else to go
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
Old his girl hands on his hats
I never knew which one were mine
Now he's gone
I'm alone
And I don't know
where I might be going
I heard the wind
the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside
from the house
But how 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 heard the wind
the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside
from the house
But how for me was always
someone else you know
That shadows always fall
when the sun goes down
Alone is 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 heard the wind
the wind stopped blowing
Set me on the roadside
from the house
Then how for me was always
someone else to go
