[Verse]

Am      G            F          G
As I rose above the noise and confusion
Am        G           F            G
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
Dm      C          Bb   C   Dm    C       G
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew to high
Am         G             F               G
Though my eyes can see i still was a blind man
Am          G                F            G
Though my mind could think i still was a mad man
Dm         C              Bb      C
I hear the voices when im dreaming
Dm      C       G
I can hear them say


[Chorus]

Am     C     G       F
Carry on my wayward son
Am         C          G         F
There'll be peace when you are done
Am       C       G      F
Lay your weary head to rest

Don't you cry no more
