Why do I feel so confused inside?
Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do
Smiling outside, inside blue.

Is this all there is to life?
Go to school, get a job
I think there should be something more
Otherwise, what's all this for?
There must be some purpose here
Something we all must learn.

Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do?
Smiling outside, inside blue.

Tell me Lord, what I need to do
Where to find the inner light
Where to find my inner strength
What's my mission, what's my creed?
Tell me love is all you need.

Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do
Smiling outside, inside blue.

I want to be a success
I want to live my life
But first I must search deep inside
To find my talent, to find out where my soul abides
Where do I belong?
Please tell me this confusion won't last long.

Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do
Smiling outside, inside blue.

I'm so afraid to trust
Not wanting to be hurt
I've seen my friends be broken
Lost their will to fly
But, you see, I want to reach the sky
My soul flies with the birds
High above the trees.

Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do
Smiling outside, inside blue.

People tell me, "you must believe"
But do I have to conform?
Can't I just believe what I feel inside?
I see no need to do as everyone else
I am my own person
I make my own beliefs.

Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do
Smiling outside, inside blue.

I listen to the beating of my own heart
I know it's the one true thing
No one can change it, it stays the same
I don't think I'll amount to very much fame
But that's okay, as long as I find out who I am
The real me deep inside.

Is this right or is this wrong?
I can't decide just what to do
Smiling outside, inside blue.
Smiling outside, inside blue.
