Once I 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

Don't let tomorrow find you wishing
Boy, you got 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 a 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 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 strong wind blow
Oh now, things will be much better
If you don't become a prisoner to the reason you should know you know

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
