Wayward son lyrics

Wayward son lyrics

Carry on my wayward son

There’ll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Don’t you cry no more

Ah

Once I rose above the noise and confusion

Just to get a glimpse beyond this 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 think I still was a mad man

I hear the voices when I’m dreaming

I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son

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

Well, 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

Carry on my wayward son

There’ll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Don’t you cry no more no!

Carry on

You will always remember

Carry on

Nothing equals the splendor

Now your life’s no longer empty

Surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son

There’ll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Don’t you cry

Don’t you cry no more

No more!
