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 one 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 coming home
