Blue Guitar Lyrics

I once knew a man
Showed me the sleight of hand
In the blink of an eye he danced across the strings
He played a song I'd never heard
Poignant and absurd
And to this day it leaves me wondering

How I wish tommorrow I were fishin'
Boy Igot a mission, to shake it rattle and roll
Oh now just use your intuition
You'll get less competition, from the clock upon the wall

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me
Play me serenade
A simple masquerade
Play on your blue guitar for me

Was he real or make-believe
Or someone to deceive
That time is just a folly we can't see
You only know one song
Play it right or play it wrong
'Cause the truth is always somewhere in between

You and I - we can't change the weather
And we're all in this together so let the stong wind blow
Oh now things will be much better
If you don't become a prisoner to the reason you should know

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me
Play me a serenade
A lover's masquerade
Play on your blue guitar for me

(let's play it boys)

How I wish tommorrow I were fishin'
Boy Igot a mission, to shake it rattle and roll
Oh now just use your intuition
You'll get less competition, from the clock upon the wall

You are what you are
You dream what you dream
Play on your blue guitar for me
Play me serenade
Red wine and lemonade
Play on your blue guitar for me
