Everybody says I'm someone else That I'm sick and theres no cure Damned if I know who I am There was only one place I was sure When I was still in Saigon, still in Saigon I am still in Saigon in my mind Every summer when it rains I smell the jungle, I hear the planes I can't tell no one I feel ashamed Afraid someday I'll go insane That's been ten long years ago And time has gone on by But now and then I catch myself Eyes searching through the sky All the sounds of long ago Will be forever in my head Mingled with the woundeds cries And the silence of the dead Cause I'm still in Saigon, still in Saigon I am still in Saigon in my mind I am still in Saigon I am still in Saigon Yes, I'm still in Saigon in my mind Still in Saigon
