I cry tears of emotion to spread across the U.S.A
Ain't no sunshine cowboy, in your pockets
I'll make my own way while I play

Baby you forgot your livin'
Someone covered up your eyes
In my way at least I'm givin' what I love, am I wise?

There's gonna be some confusion and there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and you'll look to the skies
And you'll pray, while I play

I am my father's son or that is what I heard
Maybe I got it wrong, I didn't mean a word
You got my face and I'll play your ace, pretend I haven't heard

There's gonna be some confusion and there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and look to the skies
And you'll pray, oh while I play

I am a minstrel, that is all I want to be
I'll play inside your soul, I'll show you to yourself
I'll fill your head with wild emotions, a symphony in wealth

There's gonna be some confusion and there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and look to the skies
And you'll pray, while I play

I will take my leave, I gotta move on time
I played inside your soul, I made you sing along
I will return to find out if the melody was wrong

There's gonna be some confusion and there's gonna be a day
You'll raise your eyes and look to the skies
And you'll pray, while I play, while I play
