While I Play

 I cry tears of emotion to spread across the USA
 Ain't no sunshine cowboy in your pockets
 I'll make my own way, while I play
 Baby you forgot your living
 Someone covered up your eyes
 In my way at least I'm giving 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 you'll look to the skies
 And you'll pray, 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
 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 you'll look to the skies
 And you'll pray, while I play
 I will take my leave,
 I gotta move ontime
 I played inside your soul, 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 you'll look to the skies
 And you'll pray, while I play
