Carry On Wayward Son
Kerry Livgren)



Once I rose above the noise and confusion

Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion

I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man

Though my mind could thnk I still was a mad man

I hear the voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear them say



CHORUS

Carry on my wayward son,

For there'll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Don't you cry no more



Masquerading as a man with a reason

My charade is the event of the season

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know

On a stormy sea of moving emotion

Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean

I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say



CHORUS



Carry on, you will always remember

Carry on, nothing equals the splendor

Now your life's no longer empty

Surely heaven waits for you



CHORUS
