So far away from L.A.

Versions: #1#2
Some dim airport lights that glimmer,
Some strange foreign/golden-haired girls
In my memory /still linger.
It's winter in / San Francisco,
Water never falls, never, no,
On the borders of Colorado.
The Golden Gate /starts to slumber
On Alcatraz/, where still linger
Prison-coloured /sobs, O, so long !
Mr Caryl /Chessman is dead
There's still a doubt/, there, in the shade,
Was he really/ right, was he wrong ?
 
So far away from L.A,
So far ago from Frisco,
I'm no one but a shadow.
But a shadow, a shadow.
The Queen Mary's/ now a hotel
Just anchored near/ Beverly Hills
And all the hills/ can still recall
The splendours of / the Dynasty
That, from Garbo, then, to Bogie
Reverbera/ted its follies.
So far away from L.A
So far ago from Frisco
I'm no one but a shadow
But a shadow, a shadow.
 
Such a poor M/rs Polanski;
Two lives lost/ in a single killing...
Yet, around here, who recalls it ?
It's winter in San Francisco
I'll find no rest , oh, really no,
But on the bor/ders of Colorado
So far away from L.A,
So far ago from Frisco,
I'm no one but a shadow,
But a shadow, a shadow,
But a shadow, a shadow.
 
Bedankt!

>A masterpiece of a composition
If you meant "musical composition", then you can't be serious.
This a good example of a song that many French speakers are fond of and justifiably so probably because of its poetry.
But musically? Aside from the chorus part which ironically is in English it is not even a song in non-French sense. It is reciting
a poem to music.
I apologize if I offended anybody, but not knowing more than 10 words of French, this is my perspective. And I love quite a few French songs, that I consider real songs.

OK.
But did you mean that it is a masterpiece of a musical composition?
Just curious. It was not clear. Tastes differ. And the word composition is not necessarily applicable to music only.
